I just started up a band with my friends, and we are trying to come up with a good name. Suggestions would be appreciated.

Make sure it is overly long. It could even be ironic if you want. Maybe throw in some unecessary punctuation.

I said if I ever was in a band, I would name it Prolific Beard. But I am getting old and my music skills are deteriorating, so... enjoy.

Unfortunately no. I graduated in 05. I was there the last good years of Labor Day, Halloween, St. Patricks Day, Bike Races.

I watched it all fall away.

I think the indie band name I've been most pleased with discovering is some Montreal punk band I've never even heard. We kept seeing the words MORE DEAD COPS spraypainted on the sides of buildings in what passes for a slum in Montreal and asked one of the Montreal chicks who chaperoned our visits about it, and she explained it was the name of a band. Love that.

I used to be able to play the guitar effectively, so yes. I also tried Reason and created some below average songs on it.

If I were ever to start an altcountry act, I would use the name The Wicker Chairs.

And, if I were to ever start a band of any other style, we would be named Rock Creek, after the creek that ran by my house as a kid.

a band name really doesnt matter as long as the music itself is on point...steely dans named after a steam powered dildo...

The Black beats
always wanted a band w/this name

or you could just take everything that your band is, and say the complete opposite, for example.... Brazilian girls - None of the members are actually from Brazil and the only female member is lead singer Sabina Sciubba.
The scissor sisters - ionno about scissors but there is only one girl
Of montreal - Nobody is from montreal in that band
dresden dolls - not dolls or from dresden

Or you could always name yourself after an old archduke - Franz ferdinand

Or just take all you names and mash them up - fischerspooner, cocorosie

Wheres the beef?
09-13-2007, 10:20 PM
Or just say what you are: Indie Band.
