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...

Thank you so much for saying that. That's all I could think of while reading the article. I fell in the pit...

Most band members hate their names when I talk to them. Haha, Green Day and Foo Fighters and Brand New have all talked shit on their names at one point or another.

/Coming from someone who thought ABsolutepUnk was a good idea.

I can see that happening with bands. I do like the absolutepunk name though if it means anything lol.

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?"

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.

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

My ideas for band names:

The Royal Divorce
Shyamalan Twist
Jumping Frenchmen of Maine

Shyamalan Twist is fucking perfect. Gold star for you, sir.
