Band names?


Junior Member
When I was a teenager we called our band Emanon. No name backwards. My drum teacher had suggested it and the other guys in the band liked it so that was that. I do have to say I'm partial to the name Mothers of Invention or just The Mothers. I've been jamming with a bass and guitar player the past couple weeks, with masks, and one of them brought up the idea of a name. No names thrown around. Personally I think he's jumping the gun a bit. Two jams doesn't necessarily make a band. But of course, now I'm thinking. Haven't come up with anything just yet.

I always wanted to be in a band that got *just* famous enough that we needed fake band names to play smaller shows. Figured they'd be something funny, like Puffy Areolas or Side Boob or Your Uncle Larry, just goofy stuff.

I realize I'm not being very helpful. :)
Don't like Middle Boob?

Howdy, I’ve been playing with some people for a while not really making our own music, doing covers from bands (Green Day, Black Sabbath, Nirvana) that kind of stuff but are starting to make our own songs and it’s handy to have a name when we start playing at local places/ doing open mic nights and that stuff. Y’all got ideas?
Are you sitting down?

Ladies and Gentlemen, are you ready for the hottest band in the world? It's . . .


Boom! You're Welcome.

Oh! And i just remembered a name i suggested for our cover band 'Ziggy Zig and the Stardusters' and the joke would be that we didn't do a David Bowie cover. Was more inspired by a cover band i was in and they needed a small introduction before we came on, so we said 'we're a Slayer coverband, but we don't do any Slayer songs'
Which was hilarious when we were announced:
"Yeah the next band are a couple of friends who describe themselves as a Slayer cover band..."
-couple of loud cheers and yeahs from the audience-
"...but they don't do Slayer conver songs."
-disappointed noises from the ones who cheered a second ago
