    If you could name a band whatever you wanted what would you name it?

    Meryl Streep!

    No? Okay, how about Muddy Waters? Yeah, I know a particular family of a blues musician might be a bit ticked off, but I'd call the band that after the Mighty Mo, not him.

    I don't want you to steal it, but let me assure you, when it's applied to my nonexistent dream band, it will be awesome.


    edit: bah. peasants. I'll tell you the one I used on guitar hero: Defunkt. See? Just think of how cool that name is, and think about how awesome the other one must be. Sure it was used before. But it's no less epic.

    Honestly if you can think of a name it's probably already been thought of and used.
    Like The Shammy-Shiners. I bet that exists, but I might listen to them.

    :goodjob: I was thinking along the same lines.

    "The Who" sounds really cool too, too bad it's been taken for a long time...

    El Recreativo = "the recreational one" (though it doesn't sound as stupid in Spanish). Recreativo de Huelva is also my favourite football/soccer club.

    I'd call them the Emperor Penguins. The album covers could just be different pictures of emperor penguins playing historical roles, starting with Kaiser Wilhelm II.

    As for the music I don't think it would matter as long as we market it right. Just steal a bunch of tunes from Bad Religion and have some whiny blond teenager from California sing lyrics like "We thought you'd be nice/But now you're sinking all our ice/And killing all our penguin brothers/In the name of American freedom".
