One of my favorite hobbies is making up potential names for rock bands. Actually, it’s more of an addiction. Since I can’t seem to land my dream job of working in A&R somewhere that pays a lot and expects very little of me, here’s a few of the band names I've created:
This is an all girl band. They could even be drag queens wearing pink tights.
Metal band. No other type of band could pull off “Maggots” in the name as well.
This one is actually being used right now by a group of guys who get together and play oldies for fun. If they ever make any money I am going to ask for 10% based on naming rights.
A Bon Jovi tribute band that’s all banjo. It would sound like this: Click Here.
Actually, I think this is ridiculous, but I thought the clip was too hilarious to leave it off the list. Play it again!!!
My dog was named after Jack London and she has a very rock and roll attitude, so she deserves to have a band named after her. I have no other reason for picking this name.
A Christian rock band who really wants to make a difference in the world and not just play music. They would manifest the love of God in such dramatic ways that the whole world would stop and say, “Holy Shift! Love really does change everything for the better!”
Bonus clip: I wrote the lyrics for a song called Megatistics. It’s written in the musical style of Megadeth but with statistical lyrics. This might be a future cut on the Pancake Maggots CD.
