What a dumb article. Doesn't The Wall Street Journal have better things to talk about?
Probably not. It's also over a year old. I just stumbled on it today.

If a bunch of musicians are creative enough to write good music and to form a band, the name will kind of just come with them. I'm sure that's not always the case though.

I was unaware that there was a list of good band names that people had to choose from.

Me too. I wonder where this list is being held.

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...
Sounds like it's Andy's fault, not Myspace's.

If I was ever in a band, I'd name it "Polka Dots & Stripes." I've had that in my mind forever now for some reason...

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.

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.

But I mean, I don't have any problems figuring out the difference between Ben Nichols' band and the hispanic pop singer.

Like you said, a band's name is meant to identify them. So forcing a band to change that identity after six years seems a little rude. If you don't like the confusion that arose, why not change your name? It's not like you can argue that picking the name "Discovery" for your band is something another band couldnt have independently done on their own.
