If you had a band what would you call it?

I've noticed some bands where I live have taken their name from movie characters, and that's a pretty fun concept...

One I thought would be a cool band name would be:

Deacon Frost

But if I had to just pick a band name off the top of my head, I'd go with:

Sequel Zero

How 'bout the rest of you?

Here are some of my imaginary band names:

Raft Box Model
Sex Blanket
Space Diaper
Sy Sperling & The Clients

(these ones would probably make a better album titles):
Suitcase Full of Silicone
Circus Sized

What do you think?

The Stingy Buggers - we had this band, but were too cheap to buy instruments and soon stopped getting any gigs

Check out this website: http://www.elsewhere.org/cgi-bin/bandname

It randomly generates band names; you can keep clicking Refresh to get a new group (anywhere between 2 and 10 suggestions).

Some of them are formed by taking 2 common words and running them together without capitalization: pancakegirl. Others involve an adjective / noun combo that makes zero sense, like Irksome Furniture. Then there are the really long ones such as Peter Badabing and the Des Moines Accountants or Buddy Sams and the Thick Pancake Policy.

I have a lot of fun there. And I was this close to using Irksome Furniture as my DVDTalk username.

We had one called The Blue Light Special in high school because we all worked PT at K-Mart.

Metallica.... oh wait, nevermind I guess someone already has used that. Damn




actually though, I've always wanted to have a band called "Wallace and Vomit" I'm sure that has been used though.

My one friend just was talking to me the other day about how we wanted to create a synth cover band, Kasio Keyboard Kings.

I would like to have a band called the Fussbuckets, or The Fuddy-Duddies.

I've always wanted to start a punk rock band called The Winers. Every song would be complaining about something.

We goofed around in school, under two names with various lineups:

The Fatted Pigs
and
The Kalamazoo Wahoos [this was sort of a folksy duet]

The band myself and another couple friends of mine were mentally hatching was to be called The Triumvirate.
