    My band, formerly CounterPush... Is changing it's name. Out of the choices we have all agreed upon, there are two that I like. One is Skitterpup, the other is Mofo Trio. I want to throw my support behind one, but can't decide which to pick.

    Of these two, please choose which you like better for a band that is primarily alternative, with rock and punk influence.

    I really, really dig Mofo Trio.

    It's simple
    It's orginal
    It's catchy
    It has appeal
    It's memorable
    It describes the style of music

    Thanks stubi19. We are changing because our old name is mostly associated with our cover band shows, but we are changing our format to purely original material.

    Cool. :cool:

    Good reason ;)

    I still ike Skitterpup. Mofo Trio is cool, but what if you add a member? "Mofo Quatro" just doesn't seem to work as well:p

    Quatro is tough... but tacking on two more members and you could be the quickie quintet. :D

    I like both of the names, I am leaning a little towards Skitterpup, myself. But Mofo Trio is still a real possibility too.

    stitterpup is cool.. more origional too... mofo trio sounds like alkaline trio, which is a punk/emoish band from norcal. its like when all those bands with the name "project or theory" came out at once... they just lost individuality....
  9. I know some good ones -

    The Ramones
    Pinball Wizards!

    There.. :D :rolleyes:

    IN all seriousness , hehe, I vote Skitterpup.

    Heh, I love our band's name - The RipOffs :D
  10. My bud has a band named Mofofunka.

    I like Skitterpup. Then again, it sounds like SkinnyPuppy.

    How about Mofopup?
  11. I far prefer Mofo Trio. It just rolls off the tongue better for me.

    Skitterpup just seems.......... I dunno, too many short syllables? I just don't like that one as much.

    Mofo trio seems.....kinda stupid to me, like, 12 year old punk band "LETS FIT THE WORD ""MoFo" IN OUR NAME!!! SWEEEETTTT!"

    Skitterpup sounds cool, and i get this great image of a little puppy ,,,uh,,,,skittering....
  13. I think Mofo Trio is a very good name, I'd go with it. Very catchy.
  14. here're a few ideas, just 'cause i have nothing better to do:
    tree fort
    the basics
    eh...i'm bored.

    I voted Skitterpup, just a nice word to say.

    Mofo Trio... how about Trio Mofo instead?

    Edit: Triomofo, Quadramofo, Pentamofo, ... etc :)
  18. Skitterpup definitely. It flows nicely. It wouldn't worry parents if their kids said they were going to see "Skitterpup." Not the same reaction with "Mofo Trio."

    Also, with a name like, "Mofo Trio," you could be approached by the Mafia. Think about it, it's too close. ;)

    Mike :D

    You wanna go to sleep?

    "Skitterpup" sounds like the name of a type of fish that lives in the mud. That could be a good thing.

    On the other hand, "Mofo Trio" is better for LiquidMidnight's reasons. I don't think kids would be such a concern, as I assume the venues you'd play would be 21 and over anyway.

    By the way, what's the age range of your audience?
  20. Mofo Trio is cool because its easy for the crowd to shout when they're calling for an encore:


    And bands with "Trio" and "Quintet" are cool.

    Skitterpup has too many unstressed syllables and sounds to much like college crap rock (no offence)

    "SK-IT-TER-PUP" Doesn't really roll off the tongue as well.

    I should also note, Floyd, that there's a band from Georgia named Treephort, and they're acutally pretty funny.
