Chilango's Punkers
Hell's Monks
La prole (it's The offspring in spanish)
Manic Subsidial XD

I would never use a band name with the word bastard, ass, shit, fuck, or douche in it. It takes away immensly from the band.

I hate when people make these kinds of threads. Bands with good names have reasons for naming themselves that, not just because it sounded cool. I would just love to hear some famous band say, "Yeah, we came up with the name cause our drummer asked some random people on the internet what a good name would be".

well, I agree & all, except I don't think the reasons to pick a particular name for your band need to be good, but at least a band's name is personal when you come up with it yourself. for all I care my favorite band Racoon tells their fans they chose the name "Racoon", because the singer's girlfriend once used make up in a way she looked like a racoon in effect. as long as they didn't let a bunch of strangers come up with it, because they lacked the creativity to come up with something as simple & effective as Racoon.

you don't have to wreck your poor brain trying to come up with a name, just take something simple & effective & at least come up with it yourself. why would anyone let anyone else name their own band? it's ridiculous.

I agree with you, but, hey, Fall Out Boy got its name by request of an audience member (...who got it from "The Simpsons").

a member of THEIR audience. that still makes it more personal than asking a bunch of strangers over the internet to pick a name for you, because you entirely lack any form of creativity. plus, someone suggested it, they apparently liked the suggestion & chose the suggested name for themselves. meaning they were still the ones to choose it.

I don't get how people in-a-band.. playing-an-instrument.. which should be a creative act in itself, can lack the creativity to come up with something as simple as a fucking band name. holy shit. the fact they'd admit it by asking a bunch of strangers makes it even worse. I mean, who would want to listen to a band, that wasn't even creative enough to come up with their own NAME?

I didn't mean to say your name has to be deep or important. One of my favorite band names is Eve 6. The band was watching xfiles and there were 6 Eves in different cases, and they were numbered... and the sixth one took out the man's eyeball and ate it to show she liked him. They liked it and made it their name. It's not deep or profound, but it means something to them.

I also love how the goo goo dolls came up with their name while drunk and now they hate their name, lol.

first of all, fallout boy is not really a good band name... and second of all, joy is right, it's from their audience, not random strangers online.

Yeah, I'm with you both. I just enjoy playing devil's advocate, from time to time. And, yes, FOB is a bad name, although I hated it less, once I found that it wasn't a bunch of random words, thrown together. Didn't help me much with actually liking THE BAND, though.

They were really drunk and were looking in the classifieds... Robby saw an ad for some "Goo dolls", and they started laughing really hard at the name... so they decided to make it their band name. Then the band took a turn toward being a serious band and they hated that the name made them sound like a moronic goofy band.

Fall Out Boy got their name when they asked a crowd at a battle of the bands what their name should be. It wasn't till recently that they found out it was a Simpsons reference.


But, FOB sucks.

First of all, I don't think that's a good band name, personally.

Second of all, if they suck so much, linking them in promoting them... that makes no sense...

Well they don't understand music, and I feel that I need to justify why I left the band. Iím not all too sure why I would link them, maybe to prove that it wasn't worth sticking around in.

I just think of the episode of Gilmore Girls when they're arguing over a band name, and one of the members comes up with "Follow Them to the End of the River", or something... and the one guy says it's too long, so the first guy says, "Yeah but once we're famous, our fans will shorten it to "FTTTEOTR". haha, love that show.

But I agree with you, Joy.

This is off-topic(ish), but I just wanted to share the story of my band's name. My singer, my bass player, and I were in the same Comparative Government class last year and one of the countries we studied was Iran. When coming up with names, we thought, "Hey! The Shah of Iran would be a cool name, and everyone in our class would get it!" Unfortunately, we are a bit retarded and we thought that "Shah" was spelled with a w. It wasn't until about a month after our first show when we learned that we had spelled it wrong. Of course, finding this to be rather funny, we kept the name.

Oh, it was also almost going to be "The Shwa" because of the last two syllables in in our lead guitar player's name "Joshua," but that idea was canned.

oh BABY, I love the Gilmore Girls & this scene in particular<333333!!

edit; STOP! I just found The most brilliant Wiki site with loads & loads of quotes from the Gilmore Girls. the quote you mentioned isn't quite like you said it, but it comes down to the same;

Dave: What we need is a name.
Brian: I made my suggestion.
Zach: Yeah, and we vetoed "The Harry Potters". Next.
Brian: So yours is better?
Zach: "Follow Them to the Edge of the Desert" is memorable and classy.
Brian: I run out of breath every time I say it.
Zach: You've got asthma, dude. You run out of breath saying your name.
Dave: Yeah, Brian, we can't work our name around your respiratory illnesses.
Brian: Even without an inhaler, "Follow Them to the Edge of the Desert" is too long.
Zach: Yeah, but when we get famous, our fans will shorten it to F-T-T-T-E-O-T-D.

I think you have to find your band's name alone, you have to make your way alone, have to found your style not on website (not totally alone but you understand me ?)

I think La prole (offspring in spanish I know) is a really bad idea. Maybe in one month you won't enjoy the offspring like today. And if you name your band La prole, take the offspring's songs, the lyrics, wear sunglasses, have blond hair and blue eyes :cool: ...oups you're a drummer, no ? So have black hair, tattos like Atom (take his name too) or like Ron it's as you want :)
I joke but really NOT La prole ^^ (and not Manic Subsidial too, anything about the offspring or an other band)
But you have to do what you want and if you take La prole it's your life not mine:)

'Waste of your time' is the best suggestion so far.

Here's an idea for your debut album: The Story the Spic-rockers'

1.'None of our band members play instruments'

2.'A random made our name up'

3.'we actually are a waste of time'

4.'check out our myspace + add us to your friends list'

5.'we'll never do a gig'

6.'Inter-racial (The intermission)'

7.'we can't afford instruments, because we're mexican'

8.'Handle-bar moustaches for the win'

9.'Immigration song (fuck you USA)'

10.'The ballad of Ninty Man'

11.'Ninty Man's 3 second drum solo'

12.'We've never done a days work in our lives'

13.'Deportation (Outro)

I'm not sure why I'm letting this thread live. The conversation's not exactly constructive and this is becoming another one of those "Hey guys figure out a name for my band because I'm too uncreative for one myself!".

[insert usual babble about that if you're not creative enough to come up with a name for your band, you're not creative enough to be making music in the first place]

Random band name suggestions go here: http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20536

If you have a name for Ninty's band you need to desperately let him know of, PM him.

If you feel I'm too harsh with this closing, PM me.

With all that said, CLOSED.
