name suggestions

me and some freinds started a band and can't think of a name, we've already played a gig at a talent show, and we owned that place, blew everyone out of the water. We've been trying to think of a name, with no luck, so, tell me what you would name a band if YOU were in one? (or if you already are, what are some suggetsions?)

Anabolic
Lovemuscle
Fists
Maniacal
Intoxication
Nobody
Hell Awaits
Angst
Bootleg
Melodromatic
Genre
Detestatation
Detox
Rambunctious
Incarcerated
Laceration
Payola

If I were in a band, we would play mostly hard rock/metal.

Insert happy synomyns if you lean more towards glam. If you make it big, I'll expect some royalty checks.

Good luck

Ubiquitous was the name of the hip hop group I was in a few years back.

How about uploading a song for us to hear?
Honestly, no one is going to come up with a band name for you that works perfectly without knowing you, your band mates, or your music.

I've been playing in bands for 15+ years and names are always hard. Usually you end up finding an inside joke or something that means something to everyone in the band. There aren't that many "random word" band names that haven't already been taken.

I've been in alot of bands as well...what kind of name are you looking for? serious? stupid? should it start with THE like a bunch of retarded bands these days? I have read many times that the hardest thing about being in a band is naming one and every member liking the name. And GOD was that person who wrote that ever right!

ya I know! and no, we don't want it to be stupid, we want a name that just by telling people the name of our band they know that we arent a bunch of mindless goons pretending to play instruments, which isn't the case (the drummers been playing drums for 13 years, me and my brother have been playing since december, but are better than many guitar players that have been playing for years, and our bass guitarist has been playing for I don't know how long, but is definantly good at it) we want a name that makes people take us seriously for who we are, and I don't think that's gonna happen unless we come up with it ourselves, and making this thread made me realise that heres really no way of making a name, you have to just stumble upon it. I was thinking maybe " A Work in Progress" since we could never think of a name, but I think that is a little to much of, something, I just can't tell what that something is. and for rewarding you for reading this post heres some tweetz!:tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz: :tweetz:

Well, I was serious to know what you guys have come up with. If you would have mentioned one or two names, that would have meant to me that you might have been tossing around a couple of potential band names. With those, we could have given you some input on the best sounding or best fit names for your band. Personally, I think this is something that the band needs to sit down and come up with. It should be meaningful and have some sort of history behind it. It is kind of like the personality of the band should make up the name. Anyway, good luck with coming up with a name!

And while I was typing up my message, you said pretty much the same! Great job, skid. You'll come up with a name soon that everyone can agree on. There's probably going to be one guy in the band who won't like it, but it'll come to you!

it'll probably be blues, our drummer (yes his name is blues, actually his middle name is blues, his first name is even worse, his parents used to be hippies) he doesn't like anything that doesn't contain poop, fire or farts, but that's just who he is

Here in Omaha we have a morning radio show called Todd & Tyler. Throughout the show, when something funny or unique or something is mentioned, someone says that it sounds like a band name. They started doing the Todd & Tyler Great Band Names awhile back.....heres the list of them so far....maybe there's one for you.....

^ Holy crap, that's a lot of names!!! There were some pretty funny ones there, too.

Blues would be a cool name, but don't think it would work if you're playing rock. That would just throw everyone off, if ya know what I mean.

Those are funny. Problem is most successful band names don't make you laugh. Any way, How 'bout Poo for Blue? Or Pu4Blue? BlewMe?

yeah your right...you do just stumble across it. I remember the last band i was in before the one i'm in now...we were trying to come up with a name and it was getting to all of us. i would just drive down the street and everything i saw i would say to myself a few times to see if it had a ring. And we all sat down so many times brain storming writing down the first thing that came to mind. Then one night we were all out drinking and one of my buddy's asked for a light...i tried to light his cig but for some reason it just wouldnt light right. He told me "man burn the end of this damn thing already" and i looked at him funny and he knew why. He then said..."ladies and gentleman...BURN THE END". And that was that! Another thing you wanna consider is to make sure noone else has the name. Lucky for us noone on the planet had that name. The band i'm in now is called AUTOSTATIC and noone has that name either. It pays to be unique!
