    10/20 sounds cool though..
    my first punk band i was in was called "faded new"
    we sucked.. I listened to a tape and me and the guitarist were the only ones in the band with talent. In every song the bassist played 2 notes.. the E and the A.. pretty much open E and A

    Jings you're a poet, and I bet you didn't know it!

    OK, it's early for me.............


    Back to the original poster - wouldn't 20/20 be better???? Certainly would help you see! If you still like 10/20, why not call yourselves Myopica.......:eek:

    Ok, I'll go now...

  16. Good punk names

    10/20 .... I'll put it gently, it looks stupid. And I don't think anyone will take you seriously with a name like that. If you're going to have band with a number in it, at least make it pertain to the size of your band, at least that is classy. Ex: Dillinger 4, Alkaline Trio, Rocksteady 7etc.

    Bands with names like 5 cent deposit, or Five Iron Frenzy, Five Finger Discount (hmmm...new rule, avoid 5 at all costs!) or 1209 or B4:20(by far the worst ever) just sound dumb to me.

    To be honest, the name 10/20 does not fit the mold I have developed for band names. Bop's FIRST RULE of band names is that a band name must be memorable. The name 10/20 does not carry enough weight to be memorable. We live in a digiatal age with an overload of numbers. Why add two more?

    Bop's SECOND RULE of band names is that the name must be easy to spell, easy to write, easy to read and easy to say. The name 10/20 while easy to say, may create confusion because when read, one could pronounce it ten slash twenty or ten/twentieth or one zero/two zero.

    Bop's THIRD RULE of band names is that the name must stand out from the crowd as a band name. It must be distinctive. The name 10/20 does not stand out.

    Bop's FOURTH RULE of band names is that the name should probably give at least some hint as to the style of music. In other words a gospel group would probably not have a name like Satan's Grave Yard and a country band would not have a name like Pain Clinic. A girl's punk band might call themselves the Pretty Darlings, but not a guy's heavy metal band .What type of music is 10/20? Maybe I should know, but I don't.

    Bop's FIFTH RULE of band names is that the name must be one that lends itself to colorful or interesting graphics. Your name is a winner there. The name 10/20 meets only one out of five of Bop's Rules for Band Names. I say find a better name. You can do it.

    Try Bop's Easy Band Name Game.

    Make two or three columns of fun words you chose at random form the dictionary. Then try combining a word from each column until you come up with an interesting combination. Chances are no other band will have your name. That way you also meet Bop's SIXTH RULE of band names. Choose a name no other band can claim you stole from them.
