    What do you guys think is a good name for a grunge band. And yes I know grunge is dead, but I'm gonna exume it(sorry for getting so graphic).:D

    Ok, since I'm listening to Temple of the Dog right now, I'll give this a shot... hrmmm
    There. There is your band name. I would think of more choices, but I'm reading Hamlet and not feeling very creative right now.

    I'm gonna help you out and ask people not to start the genre/label thing. we all know that grunge was a name for a bunch of bands out of seattle that whore flannel. thats no a put down, ive been in 3 "Grunge" bands that were fun as hell to play in. still love em. I would say "cops on acid" but it's taken. how bout "Processed"? i always thought that was cool, but then again, i'm an idiot.
  4. No offense, that just caught my eye, interesting misspelling ;)

    Disgruntled Postmen? (ya know, like Dead Milkmen?)
    Abacus? (or abdacus, I forget how you spell it, you know, one of those old bean counter thingies that people used instead of calculators)
    Attica (cool name, after the prison riot)

    Well, I have a very imporatnt question....

    What kind of grunge are you?

    Are you Sonic Youth'sh, Mudhoney'sh, Dinosaur Jr'sh, Nirvana'sh, Alice in Chains'sh, Pearl Jam'sh or are you.......

    Grunge is so broad that there are countless ideas that could come up.

    If youre in a Mudhoney'sh band then Dr. Cheese is a good name, but if youre in a Pearl Jam'sh or AIC'sh band, youre gonna be laughed at.

    Catch my drift?
