I had a conversation on the way home from work tonight with two of my favorite people concerning band names.
I’m not going to lie. Unless I really really know you or I really really know your band, there is a very very good chance that I do not remember the name of your band unless it is really really original. Or funny.
If you want my opinion and you are naming a new band (and you probably don’t, but I am going to tell you anyway), Please avoid using the following words in your band name:
I think that’s it… Not that a great band name wouldn’t be Fallen Goat Stab Wound Southern Demon Destruction….
It’s just that I might accidentally call you Northern Flying Elephant People.
Of course, it’s also possible that I might get too animated and call you Money for Meanies, too.
I kid. Kinda.
Really, though, I like originality.
I also regularly change the words to metal songs from things like….
DEATH. DIE. DESTRUCTION. EVIL. BURNING. DEATH. DEATH. DEATH. DIE.
RAINBOWS. PONIES. UNICORNS. PUPPIES. GLITTER. PINKIE SPARKLESHINE.
When this happens I usually have to remove myself from the pit/band/stage area because I have amused myself to the point of ridiculous laughter and that is never acceptable during things like death, dying, and stabbing.
Maybe there’s something wrong with me…..
