    I'm thinking of performing under the name "Murphy Mephistopheles".

    I got the idea from having to take out a student loan to finish a certification that's required for my degree, and it felt like selling my soul.

    Any other names you use, or would use if your band asked you to come up with one. Cool stories worth bonus points.

    I have been known by various names in various bands due to my rather large size and somewhat aggressive style. The Bear, The Animal, and The Biguglyman.

    I used to love Sabado Gigante. I don't speak a lick of Spanish so I'd just make up what they were talking about.

  11. Das Jugghead which is a play on a nickname from my best friend. He had always called me "Snapperhead" growing up. In the band we were in previously the drummer misheard this as "Jugghead." Add my German roots and I became "Das Jugghead" and the name stuck. Wait . . . I just realized the drummer named me. Dammit.

    Closest I ever got was one band where I was occasionally called and introduced as “40.” For every other band before and after that, my christian name suited everyone (and me!) just fine.

    When I joined Redhead, the previous bass player's name began with a D. So does mine. So I became D2. When I'd been in the band longer than the first D, I asked if I could get upgraded to D1. BL said no. We auditioned a keyboard player last week, his name also starts with D. I said if he joins the band, he's D3. Non-negotiable demand! :D

    I was in a new wave band in the early '80s named Porcelain Forehead and my stage name was Ace Symmetrical.

    P.S. how "shocking" that 90% of these are penis names...
    Stay tuned for Butt and Poo coming right up.

    Don't ask me why on any of these. No reason.
