Na that's lazy. They're are good band names left like, "I Got Jumped On a Trampoline," and "Pretty Purple Pussy Poppers" you know stuff like that.
I literally laughed out loud when I read that one. If I ever start a band I'm gonna name it that.

This article reminds me of how my mother is always complaining about band names. "What the hell does that name even mean? Did they just decide to put the most random shit together and thought it sounded good?"

I was just thinking about how much I like the band name "Fleet Foxes."

Ditto. I have a little garage band that has a fantastic name. Just a simple three word phrase. Googled it and it's not taken.
But we've been keeping it a secret for the time being.
(although it'll prob never leave garbage. Let's be honest, I'm too old and untalentes now! Ha)

with the number of words in the English language (not to mention other languages), I'd say there are plenty of good potential band names.
also, what are people's opinions of taking band names from movies, books, and song titles? because, provided you're okay with that, the options really are endless.

I have like 4 good band names that from my research have never been used before. So I don't think we have that big of a problem on our hands.

It could get quite confusing ... a band's name is meant to identify them. If there are 6 different bands with the same name, this gets even more difficult.
Like The Outsiders and The Outsiders

FYI: if anyone wants to name their band I Hate Everything, go ahead. Were no longer together.

Band name I like that I haven't seen yet, Vice Versa

Andy: The band has had a few different names over the years. When we started, we were Teddy Bear Suicide, but then we changed it to Mouse Rat. Then we were God Hates Figs, Department of Homeland Obscurity, Flames for Flames, Muscle Confusion, Nothing Rhymes With Orange, then Everything Rhymes With Orange, Punch Face Champions, Rad Wagon, Puppy Pendulum, Possum Pendulum, Penis Pendulum, Handrail Suicide, Angel Snack, Just the Tip, Threeskin... [long pause] Oh, Jet Black Pope. We went back to Mouse Rat, and now we are Scarecrow Boat. God, when I hear myself say Scarecrow Boat out loud I kinda hate it...
You missed Fourskin, no? He said they became Threeskin when one member quit.
EDIT: NEver mind, I went back and checked. He just failed to mention it in that quote.
I just started power-watching that show yesterday, haha.
