    It’s time once again for the worst part of joining a new band…deciding on a name. So far, our focus has been on classic rock from the late 60s to early 80s.

    Feedback, snarky comments, and derivative/alternative suggestions are encouraged.

    I like all of them, but they will all be nearly impossible to google and find you guys. That may not matter, but it's a thought. :)

    My fave is "No, They All Suck" but I think that band name would best suit a bunch of young guys with big beards wearing tight pastels and other 80's referenced clothing. If this is you guys, have at it! :smug:
  4. The only one I really don’t like is “The Concussions”. The others seem like pretty standard cover band monikers and yes, suck, but 98% of cover band names do. I think I’ve only kind of liked one of my bands names in 43 years.

    Here ya go...
    Accidental Band Names- what did YOU hear today?

    Edit1: However of your choices, I voted The Concussions, but I think just Concussion would be a lot better.

    Edit2: I did briefly play in a cover band called Cosmic Jukebox. Imploded after one gig. The name was one of the reasons, as the guitarist insisted we use it...and had printed us up t-shirts with a bloody awful logo...

    i don't care for any of them. none really say "classic rock" to me, and all seem like they will be impossible to find when searching on google or youtube.

    btw, how new is your band?

    I joined 3 weeks ago, the other guys have been jamming together on an off for a while, but have not had a committed bass player (or band name) until now. And we now have 2 gigs on the calendar, the first one being in less than a month. We need a name yesterday.

    I’m not too concerned with showing up in Google and YouTube searches. We are a hobby band aiming to play backyard parties and the maybe neighborhood beer garden.

    I have a list of names I’ve been kicking around for years, but they all landed with a thud. I think my ideas are more goofy and absurd…probably better suited to an originals project. One of the guys keeps offering up stuff like “Prestige” and “Permanent Sojourn.” Another guy is stuck on pandemic-related names like “The Long Haulers.”

    Some of my other ideas:
    Penny Arcade
    Squirrel Jam
    Atilla the Bunny
    Whole Lotta Guff
    My Hero, Zero

    There is already a Surf Band called The Concussions. (They wear skull masks.)

    When I was in High School, my friends and I started talking about (created?) a fictitious band called ‘Captain Wombat and the Fluorescent Figs’. It caught on, and our friends started calling one of the local radio stations, and asked them to play music by the above mentioned band.

    Rumor has it, the program director was going nuts trying to find something. (Keep in mind this was in the Seventies, long before the internet.)

    A few years ago, my band at the time was excited to see our name on the marquee of the dive bar we we playing… until we realized we were listed under “Chicken and Waffles”.
