If you were to start your own band and it was up to you to name the band, what would you end up calling it?

I remember when I was into visual basic, I thought that "static void" would be the craziest name for a band, lol. what would be yours?

I never really thought of names when out of a band, but "Apostetic" is the name of my current band.

I used to be in a band called "Super Sonic Cyber Death Monkey."

Now I just do solo work under the name The Duckman.

And, unfortunatly, Static Void has already been taken:
staticvoid (www.myspace.com/staticvoid)

Not exactly the greatest band ever, but oh well.

I was in a band called Downing Street Decadence (I didnt think of the name but I was the only one in the band that knew what it meant)
My mate had a cool band name - they were called NIMH (not in my house)

I'm in a band called Captain Yesterday. If you watch Futurama, then you'll know where that came from (it was Fry's superhero name in one episode). I had no choice in the name. They needed a drummer and I jumped in, heh.

I always said to myself that if I had a band (unlikely then or now) I would make sure the name contained a colour.

How many successful bands can you think of that have done this?
There's plenty out there: black sabbath, pink floyd, blue monday, yellow, deep purple, simply red...... etc etc

Mine would be --

A random name my friends came up with it was the photocopiers!!!!

We were in the library and sitting next to the photocopier so they decided if they ever formed a band it would be the photocopiers!!!!

I'd say Maroon Five and Pink, but you had the adjective successful in there. =P

ex member of 'the Fauves' (no not the succsessful ozzie one) who later became `Ye Fungus` a merge between the fauves and `Bliss the Pocket Opera` & The onle and only `S.H.A.G` (S*t Hot And Groovy) all wel'ard names if you ask me. (which you have probably guessed you don't want to do)

Now now Firepages (name witheld for legal reasons :cool:), 6ft 3in isnt that tall :P You missed out on a great night that Friday night gig. We won the heat and have progressed through to the semi-finals (25, 26 August). I even got chatting (for ages) with the hot singer from another band on that night :D.

I formed a four piece rock band named Ivory Tower in the mid '90s.

After we kicked the crazy one out and got a kick *** drummer, we formed a new experimental funk/rock/jazz trio named Jive Turkey.

In the process of naming the bands though, the following were suggested:
Quine
Black Mammul Hype
Blue Azuration

I had a girlfriend in a band called Ad Infinitum

And the classic funny band names from the net that stuck with me are:
Hot Rod and the Skid Marks
Dewey and the Decimal System

Way back in the 60's and early 70's when the music was real I was lead guitar and vocals for a three piece called "Filthy Beast".

I'm not sure but as a climber there is is always some kudos in being able to name a route after its first ascent and i've seen some strange names - the most bizarre being; 'Mr Plod and the gay dwarves go to the tea party"

No, we havent been on the J's. I wish. We are a Perth band and we just won the semi final for "Perths Best New Original Band Comp" at the Bog. We are currently working on a bio so we can enter the song "Rock City" in to the J's Unearthed Comp.

There is a small chance that we could be the support act for Gryroscope if they (Metro City) can sucure a deal to get them to play.
