    If you were to start a band, what name would you pick? If you actually did start a band, what name did you use?

    I haven't and most certainly don't plan to start a band, but if I did, then the name I'd pick is "Ollie and the Cromwells".

    most cool band names are already taken. I'm pretty much stuck with the bad ones. I'd call my band: The Fartknockers.

    I once wrote a spoken-word play that centered around a fictional band named Moroccan Wedding.

    I have come up with some band names, as I kind of want to be in a band (though it's totally unrealistic), but they're all terrible. The least bad (the one I like the most at least) is Gatto.

    I used to be in a band but we didn't have a name :p

    I would probably use the 'random article' function until I find something I like :p

    I played in a blues band for several years called Aces High. Back in Ohio, I also occasionally sat in with a jazz/rock combo named "Capitan ' and the ;'s".

    If I ever meet the right musicians to start another band in Chicago, I'm calling it The Wingmen

    I had a few ideas once, but they all sounded kinda lame. (I'm watching this thread for some possible inspiration :D)

    The Republicans; we'd all wear suits on stage and play punk rock.

    There was also the brilliantly named "Free Beer" . You can imagine the crowds they would pull after putting up their posters around town

    "saturday 14th March 9.00pm , Sandringham Hotel , Free Beer"

    Intensified. I opened an article on CNN and chose the first word I saw. If I start a band, that's how we're naming it.
