Not bad, I guess, just extremely lame . . . . . . . . "Outrage"
Oh well, it was 1988. I played guitar then. I'll never forget our drummer's "flams". No space between strokes, just a simultaneous thwack.
Awful sound.

Must these be actual used names, or just stuff we can come up with?

I once didnt join a band because of the name: Beef Trolley

There is a kid here trying to start a hair band called Pussycat Harlot.
actual or made up, their all made up anyway, my 2 favorites of other bands: The Vulgar Boatmen (Bloomington IN) and The Shirtheads (Wichita, KS)

"Johnny Hitler and the 4 Man Microwave".

Some members of my band, and some friends from other bands, got together at a festival and played as:

"Seamen and the Sig Monsters"

Our newest member (keys and rhythm guitar) came to us from a band called:

"Rich Meaty Taste"
