    does it matter where you send rock bands? I've been sending them all to the highest culture generator. Should I spread them around?

    I find the default random names quite amusing... I typically let them name themselves, so to speak.
    I'd hate to put the name of a beloved band onto something that might die on their first concert.

    1st was Rush, 2nd was Scissor Sisters ... then I made one called Donny Osmond and he did really well so I gave up.

    The random names are funny and make me laugh. My arena rock / cover art band "Classical Questions" had very successful tours playing Stadiums and World Wonders through every French and Aztec city across two continents. I like how the bands drive a tour bus but I wish they had a private yacht or jet at sea instead of the standard embarked cargo container transport ship. Funny thing is, I was working toward a science victory. I had no TS districts, no great works, no parks, resorts or tourism related policies but I won a Culture victory on Emperor mostly from this band's world tour and whatever wonders I happened to build plus a few relics from Kandy.

    Taking the default for the most part, though one was fairly terrible. They ended up as 'Giant Pantheon,' which was bad enough to be funny.

    Messer Chups because the bass guitarists all look like Zombierella.


    Also, Messer Chops or Messer Chips, depending what's for dinner, and I think it will be Messer Chaps if the bearded ones here decide to have pork spare ribs.

    In my Eleanor game, my most successful band was (fittingly) Aqua-taine. Serving (again fittingly) Barbie Girl realness throughout Mongolia.

    I usually name them for their promotion. ie Theatre 1, Wonder 1, etc, that tells me where the bonus is

    Anthrax has been my most successful band so far, nearly all of mine die in the first or second performance.

    I got a 4-promotion Rock Band last night. I let the name generator name it Angry Emu.

    Played French Eleanor, took care to name all my bands at first but after Eiffel 1887 and Encore both failed during their first gigs I stopped putting much thought into it and started randomising...

    I swear when I give my bands custom names they die after 1 or 2 shows. My ones with the default names go on and on. My most recent Dido game my band had around 10 shows, and was still alive when the game ended. It was a default name, I can't recall the name atm.

    I'm just gonna name them after my favorite bands... Blind Guardian, Keldian, Pathfinder, Sonata Arctica*, Nightwish, Dream Theater, Ensiferum...

    *will probably flop after releasing a few good albums
