Re: Tell me what you think of these band names

Fritz Carlton

sounds like a hotel chain. i dont like it.

Cry Havoc

somewhat punkish, its a grower. i dont mind it.

Reign

even more punkish. its more of an instant pleasure to read. i like it.

Deadbear

hmm... the similiarities between that and deathbear are numerous. does it have anything to do with how good looking and how great i am in the sack? its a good band name.

Secret Masons

no.

Creed

the greatest rock and roll band of our time. led zepplin can only wish they had the power these guys possess.

when you makin another creed thread, swallow?

have you heard of default or three doors down?

band names...a hobby of mine

can you describe the style of music ( other than excellent) that the band will be playing? That can influence the decision...an old time dance band called "deadbear"?maybe not...maybe.
For years I have been meaning to start a book to record my flashes of brilliance, the names come to me at unexpected moments and seem like grand ideas at the time...but then I forget them.
Of that list you have posted I like "Reign"...it's one of those words, what are they called, same pronunciation, different spelling?
reign- royal, the top of the heap.
rain- meterological, nice stuff when you can get it
rein- yeehaaa, equestrian ( I like the idea of a horse on the poster)
I think saying them repeatedly out loud helps..it is best they roll off the tongue
I really really REALLY dislike the band name we are currently trading under, but it's not up to me. It makes it hard to get enthusiastic. I hate it when people ask what our band name is, it has negative connotations imho.
here's my current idea......"grrrr men" just thought of it! just kidding.

last good one was "blow kisses"...don't ask about that either....of course there is a story.

good luck

Well I'm not in a band right now so none of those names have a sound yet (except Secret Masons is the band of a guy I work with), but are just a few ideas that I'm keeping in mind. I agree with you on the multiple meanings or the word. I like it when a name can be ambiguous and you can find your own meaning in it (I.E. Queen, Hum, etc.) And not going to add 'THE' to the beginning of it or make it 'Reign-182' to punk it up. I've always though that band names with numbers are dumb. I know U2 has a number in it but it seems like people just pick some random word and add a number onto it and bam, you have a band name. Sum-41, Blink-182, 69 Boyz. At least names like Ben Folds Five were funny, since they were a trio.

So cass what is this band name that you don't like so much?

Well crap, I looked on allmusic and Reign and Cry Havoc are taken. So that still leaves Deadbear and Creed.

I only just realised the other day

a long time ago, hub mixed for a band called "Y4"...I never made any U2 connection. Y4/U2...I'd say so.

I want us to be "The Detectives " again. People still remember them so fondly, it is virtually the same line up ( although I think yet another drummer is about to get the boot..temperaMENTAL band leader..(god I love the stability of bass players). We could do the "we're back,we're on a mission" thing, the suits the hats..it was fun.... but what would I know?
the embarrassing name?
must hang sally
why don't I like it?A lot of men around here , too many, have hung themselves, (my son's school mate for instance, one friend's husband and son..too many, the name actually hurts me, I asked them not to use it)
The song Mustang Sally has bad memories for me too. The singer in a previous band insulted my sister during the performance of that song, to a point I can never EVER forgive him...creep. Hub knows all that , and still they went with that name. I rarely go to gigs with them, it is that bad.hmmm maybe that's why they used it eh?
I'm in the mood for posting.... a list of the bands we have worked with, maybe it will spark an idea.I wonder if my old memory can dredge them all up? here goes..
Oasis, Energy, Nella Ridge,Headland, Moral Support, The Injectorz, Exeter Follies, Y4, Radar Image, Little Eagle,Razzamataz(they were awful),Razor,Fireballs, Hound Dog,MGM, Lunchtime Legends,The Detectives, Los Garbos and the Trashmen....too many to recall...it's been a lot of fun, a few tears,too many late nights, but mostly fun. Imusic
secret masons....I have a heavy metal friend who joined the masons, they let anyone in these days it seems. He had a band with hub , briefly called "the sect". I vehemently disliked that name too...funny handshake may have been better?
Hum? that is half a band name I thought was good for ages "Dynamo Hum"( from a Frank Zappa song) lo and behold a young local guitarist who comes home fro summer holidays, uses that name.
CASS!!!

careful what you ask for..u just might get it

why do I have the urge to sing.."another one bites the dust" or
"it's gonna be a bright bright sunshiney day.."?
Hub told me yesterday, they are only taking bookings until through February, then old sally is no more. Good imho. We'll manage or start something else....."the black velvet band"?
in that illustrious list up there, I forgot probably the best band he was in, "Temple". The guitarist named the band and it had nothing to do with U2, but I always thought of "mount temple" the source.Gosh they were a good band, they had some great originals, one of them always reminded me of Bullet The Blue Sky.

Pennyblack are playing in town tonight..woohooo, another good band name. I used "bad penny" as a chat handle for a while, so it makes me too.
rave rave rave...U2 is THE ultimate band name imho, simple perfection

I thought of a new one yesterday

"kind"

and an old one, that I still like...it has to do with Jimi Hendrix, but I've have to go back and research to get it exactly correct. I taped a "JFile" about Hendrix from triple J radio, quite a few years ago. I think it was called "castles in the sand"?
They mentioned Jimi was a paratrooper, a shy boy, not thinking about a musical career. On about his( this is the bit I can't recall) 17th, 23rd? parachute jump , he broke his ankle and left the force.
So I figured, thank heavens for that or the rest would not be history.So it is a band name with a number.

Jump17
or Jump23
whatever is the correct number, that jump made rock-n-roll history imho.

Big Grin

I like Fritz Carlton (and the bell hops)
I like Secret Mansons ( or masons)

Reign sounds like creed...or something big and hairy form the 80's
