    What's your band's name...?

    OK, so you've finally got your band together, so what will you name it...???

    No fair using names already taken or well-known.  Here are a few I've come up with:

    - The Chumps
    - Side Of Fries
    - Dizzy & The Dipsh*ts
    - Second-Hand Plaids
    - The Manic Potatoes
    - Sodapop Surfers

    I had some friends who were in a band and we used to toss around band names.  There were two I can remember which I thought were pretty good.  One was 'Urban Urges'.  The other, which was for a heavy metal band, was 'Blast Furnace'.

    I rembember once thinking "The Hexadecibels" would be good for a 6 piece band.

    I miss having regular conversation about Sawx/Yanks & baseball, but the likes of Babe, Kim and a few others almost makes it impossible for me now. Too bad, I wanted to be the first Yankee fan there to hit 10,000 posts.

    But that is okay, I got all you here on music and that is more than enough for me.

    OH MY GOD...... I'VE BEEN TALKING TO A YANKEE FAN...... I just want to go home and wash





    One of my most favorite things to do is to go up to some complete stranger who is wearing a Yankee hat/shirt/jacket in grocery store or just walking on the side walk (where ever) and tell them that I find their hat/shirt/jacket to be offensive... they pause for about 2 or 3 seconds until they figure out that I'm just busting their chops ... I like to entertain my self in strange ways.

    I understand the frustration with Kim. That person is very strange.

    Somehow BABE and I have always got along O.K. , even though so many have complained. I actually get along well with most Yankee fans, maybe I am A CLOSET YANKEE FAN....NO PLEASE, I DIDN'T REALLY SAY THAT!

    Some fantastic ones!! Especially love Manic Potatoes and Psych Ward Reject.

    I had to go to the county dump a few months back, and printed on the dumpster was CITIZEN DROPOFF. My first thought was, what a great name for a band.

    Some band names my daughter and I have come up with for our various characters in our various worlds:

    Jeff and the Daaaaaamn Cats (which is actually the name of the "band" my avi Ren is playing in)
    Dang Freaky
    Fear of a Cat Planet

    Feels like forever since I've been on the boards...I've been pretending not to exist.

    Does anyone besides me think I Just Want to Go Home and Wash would be an excellent band name?

    When I was in high school I played with a bunch of guys who called themselves Lenny Dreadful . . .   although I think you might be stretching the vernacular a little out of shape to to call us an actual band (and nobody ever got the joke, in any case).

    Cool

    Once an audience finds out how great a band plays then almost any name starts sounding great.  For example: The Beatles.  What if a mediocre band had called themseves, The Beatles?  Then people would say: "Why did they name themselves after an insect?

    beatle - pun

    I knew the spelling was a little different.  My point is this.  A band could call themselves: The Morons.  If the band sounds great, most people will find a reason to like the name.  But if they don't sound that good, people will think: lousy band with a dumb name.  But I see your point too.  The fact that The Beatles punned off of The Beetles was pretty cool.

    Re: What's your band's name...?

    I remember reading somewhere once that The Bangles were originally called The Bangs -- which has a certain connotation for an all-girl band -- but changed it because Bangles sounded more like Beatles.

    I can't vouch for the veracity of this story, but it sounds good, and makes a pretty fair point about "what's in a name."
