You and friends are on the verge of being mega rock stars but your band needs a name what are you going to call it?

I graduated from Carnegie Mellon, and my friends and I always wanted to start a rock band called The Carnage Melons – too bad none of us can sing… ;)

As a side note, I do have a friend who sings in a band called Pavlov’s Cats – I think that’s one of my favorite band names ever.

“the brittpops” i’d get some “vintage” guitars, orange amps or older JCM marshalls with a slighty overdriven sound, wear silly hats and tight pants, and offcourse aviator sunglasses, shout a lot of “oi” and become an overnight succes…...

I’ve been in bands called:

The Ahab Effect
Lightspeed Psychology

Horatio’s Persuasion and Lightspeed Psychology were my ideas.

Hellweg’s Creek

There’s a little body of water between where I used to live when I was a teenager and the town I used to really enjoy going to (as we had nothing to do in my town and this larger city was the closest thing we had to an urban area). There were two bridges, both said Hellweg Creek, I added the ‘s because I think it sounds cooler. I just always thought that would be an awesome name for a band.

@WakeUp—I would listen to a band called Next Stop Willoughby even if I hated the music. A Stop at Willoughby is one of my top five Twilight Zone episodes.

More important is if you are a cute teenage band. I mean my daughters spend so much money on the Jonas Brothers and there sort.

depends on the style of course, and what message you want to get across. Here are the names of some bands I’ve been in:

The Wild Cats
No Connection Necessary (I liked that one)
The Basket Case

Probably all taken though.

a friend of mine had a band called “Walnut Conspiracy” which I thought was funny. And another friend is in a band called “The Lazy Pigs” and writes songs about being lazy.

The other day I read a couple of stories which had titles that I thought would make great band names:

Ambient Sleaze
Practical Villainy

I wish Pansy Division wasnt already taken. (gay punk band)

dalepetrie's avatar

I forgot about this question, but now that it pops up again, just yesterday, I was reading that Soundgarden was named after their favorite sculpture which made me think, if I had a band, maybe I’d name it after my favorite sculpture, Spoonbridge and Cherry.

Also @Noel_S_Leitmotiv – I remember Pansy Division, I recall they opened for Green Day on their first huge stadium tour. Kind of struck me as weird that they felt they needed to so aggressively self-identify, because a) punk fans are generally quite socially liberal and generally don’t take issue with others’ sexuality, and b) we already HAD a mostly gay punk band….⅔ of Husker Du were gay and no one gave a shit.
