I have been in two bands in my sorry rock and roll career (it’s been years since I’ve played in a band, but I still talk about it like I’m Gary Benchley). The bands were named, in order of obscurity and irrelevance, Buddy and Horton’s Choice.
Don’t ask what either name means. Asking what a band name means is the second worst music journalist question ever. For the record, the absolute worst music journalist question is “what kind of music do you play?” Asking a band to classify their music almost guarantees and inane answer. The only good, but unfortunately rare, answer to this is “rock and roll”.
My collegue at Delta Tango Bravo already has a fine post and thread about great band names that exist. So, in the interest of awsome, I thought I would cover the range of great band names that do not (to my knowledge) exist.
Great Band Names that Don’t Exist:
- Goblin Nob (say it out loud a few times)
- The Unionized Sherpas (or The Sherpa Union)
- Attorney’s General
- Accidental Moguls
- The Bank Managers
- The Mongol Hoard
- The Beatitudes
- The Rhythm Method
Any of these would look great up on the marquee.
