Make the band name BROK3N TOMMOROW [NOT EMO]

That sounds even cooler!

make it...FIXING TODAY!......about the emo part, I think it does sound a little emo. I think mostly because of the "3". BROKEN TOMORROW looks a tad more beefy.

I think the 3 is, but the name isn't..but then again I don't know what an Emo band name is supposed to sound like.

Just for the hell of it, spell it BRKN 2MORO

If you're secure in your masculinity, you can wear a pink shirt. If you're secure in your musicality, you can have a band name that might sound emo-ish.

When I see a band name like BROK3N TOMORROW, I think of a band that got stuck in the transition from nu metal to the current "emo" cliche. You've got a clever misspelling combined with a day of the week.

yah, it is. some people can just think of something right quick and be like...oh ya, that is our name...but over 3/4ths of the stuff we thought of was taken already or was just plain stupid.
we were several...prolly 5 or 6 names before we came up with this one. we'll prolly stick with this one. ;)

Good call. Or, "It's Working Properly Right Now, However I Have Some Doubt As To Its Ability To Remain Functional Within The Next Twenty-Four Hours Or So. Perhaps I Should Order Some Spare Parts While I'm Thinking About It."

I guess this question is for me lol??
Well anyways um well its a band at my school we are playing covers like: smells like teen spirit (nirvana),blitzcreek bop (the ramones) and so on and we thought of the name The Eclipse but then we didnt like it. So the guitarist/freind though of Teenage Angst so that is what we are using right now. But im not shure of that name yet? I was thinking something like: Teenage Blackdraft or Blackdraft but i dont know its really hard. Do you have any ideas if you can help us thanks.

Agreed.

I don't think you can make it as a band if you have to push away stereotypes about your own band name. Even if your music is great, image and first impressions are a major part of your success.

But then again, thats coming from a guy in a atmospheric/alternative/rock band called Moro Sky (tomorow's sky anyone? :| )

lol
