    But there are marines everywhere. They're like cockroaches that way.

    Semper fidelis is the marine motto. They tend to reference it often, using 'semper fi' in many ways in conversion. It could mean "Hey. That was an impressive thing you just did." or "Well, I am through talking and will leave now." or "Good luck in the future."or "Hello. person who I just realized also is/was a marine.", or many other things ,depending on the marine in question.

    It's kind of like the way stoners use 'cool.

    But they are posessive about it. It belongs to them and you can't have it. Just wait.

    That is awesome. Again, a weak band name, but an excellent instrumental song title.

    I used to have many odd titles for instrumentals: "Struck By Lightning Bugs", "Golden Apples and Poisoned Pears", "Surfers From Iowa", "Raised By Weasels Only To Be Killed By Research", "The Audience Wore Raincoats". "The Onset Of Lunchmeat", "Christmas With Buddha"
  5. Haha. I think we found a keeper. The Figureheads. I'm cool with it, as is the guitaist, and I doubt the drummer will care.

    My last band was 'Smacktalk' cause we all talked a lot of smack.

    I reckon a cool name....if you were a bit of a tool, would be

    Shame on Silence.

    Maybe better suited for an album name.

    The group I play with is called "Fina Dupa", which is roughly Polish for "Nice Ass". The name, and whatever story led to its choice, predate me.

    Alright....band names. The band I'm in at the moment is called WAKE. I'm sure the name's been used before, but we couldn't decide on a name, so we cheaped out and went with an acronym. The first letters of all our last names. It was either that or fight for 4 more practices:)

    Dude! Were you in the stoner rock band "Twin Earth"? If so, that's awesome. Regardless... Monster Magnet inspired, yes?

    No, we were the Moster Magnet inspired stoner rock band Twin Earth around the same time as the one you've heard of from Sweden. We found out about the famous Twin Earth about the same time as our band was falling apart anyway :meh:

    My last was Portable Barnyard. Not bad. Before that was Strange Brew. I hated that name.

    3 ft. III (three foot three)

    We were a few minutes away from our first gig at a motel lounge, and still didn't know what we were gonna call ourselves. We were brainstorming outside next to the motel's front entrance which was covered by a canopy that had a sign on it that indicated a height clearance of 10' 7". Ten foot seven didn't sound very catchy, but since we were a trio, we jumped from that to three foot three, and went with it. That was 15 years ago! As you can imagine, with that much time elapsed, the name has become quasi-iconic... so much so that no one we know will entertain the thought of us playing under any other moniker.

    By the way, when anyone asks... we tell them that three foot three represents the total combined measurement of the band members' members.:p
  20. My friend's band is "Vellicate".

    vellicate: touch (a body part) lightly so as to excite the surface nerves and cause uneasiness, laughter, or spasmodic movements [syn: tickle, titillate] 2: irritate as if by a nip, pinch, or tear; "smooth surfaces can vellicate the teeth"; "the pain is as if sharp points pinch your back" [syn: pinch]
