Band Naming
 
Hey all.
Recently, me and group of mates have started up a ska band (3rd Wave, things like Reel Big Fish, Streetlight Manifesto style), with one snag. We're completely stuck for a name though.
Anyone got any ideas, puns and stuff would be awesome.
Choose one we like, and you'll receive due credit for it.

One, (Samurai) is my friends pick, after seeing it on here. T'others an idea i had.

DogBreath 02-26-2008 07:03 PM

Re: Band Naming
 
So you ask for help naming your band, we make suggestions, your friend picks one he likes, and you come back here asking what's so great about it? First, you're welcome. Second, ask your friend why he likes it.

ZildjianMan1023 02-28-2008 09:05 PM

Re: Band Naming
 
its funny because its samurais having a party on a lawn.. THAT NEVER HAPPENS

its an uncliched name, its original and spunky..


my bands name is Leper-Con.. noone has that name. and its a pun within our band

Re: Band Naming
 
hey i just have one question anyone think this is a good band name: teenage angst. now dont ask me what angst is dont really know it was the guitarist that though of it and i though it sounded cool.

Metal Camp

Rock Tone

Iron Epic

Criminal Four (or 3 or 5, however many in your band)

Militants Solstice

It's a lot harder then it looks, names like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Led Zeppelin and Guns N Roses are so effective but in a way simple and stupid

lewisn27 03-20-2008 08:08 PM

Re: Band Naming

ska, cha cha cha
frequency

Ah.. no. Not if you want to be taken seriously. You should really look up what's gonna be in your band name, and you'll understand.

On the other hand, it could be a could name for a parody band.

Re: Band Naming
 
Samurai Lawn Party is an amazing name for a band! Concise, imaginative, witty, exciting.

But what do I know, I'm in a band called 'Ben & Amy'.

Yeah, I know its been a long tme replying but, we all decided to go with Samurai Lawn Party, so a huge thanks to DogBreath for that one.
Just got back from recording drums, for a Myspace, which i'll set up tonight.
Thanks to everyone who posted suggestions though, loads were looked through, Samurai Lawn party came out ontop though.

Shame..............'Shrubbery of the Damned' was my personal fave.

Could try to advertise the 'Ska-ness' of your band though.

Ska Tissue

HAHA! Permission granted. I'd be flattered.
