band names

They have a practice space.

They have the chops.

But they don’t have a name.

Frankly, it’s getting has gotten a bit ridiculous.

Look at the list below. What do you think?







High Maintenance




Girth (already taken by an actual great Seattle metal band)

I vote Albatross.

The name Tantalus would look nice in a gothic font on a black T-shirt.

Are they a ska band? Scofflaw would work.
Boss and Magnum are just bad. 80s bad. I think the lines above the list are the best.

They Have a Practice Space
They Have No Name
They Have Chops (my vote)
They Have

Magnum should be excluded – we already have a band in town whose name references Zoolander (Can you name it?)

Th last post suggests new posibilities, but I’d say reduce it further to just plain They

Blue Steel?
Center for Kids Who Don’t Read Good?


Zoolander is one of my all-time. Which is why I know the answer to your question, Bob.

And, Jack, I agree completely! I even quick-designed a shirt just to show them. But, nooooooooooo.

Now my favorite is High Maintenance.

How about you all should shut up and go back to writing your blogs in your underwear while Magnum destroys this town through massive lickage?

How about that?

  Mike wrote @

If you check the link above, you’ll see why no band should ever be called magnum.

BTW. Why would I wear underwear while blogging?

I can’t believe nobody’s using it. None of the bands I’m ever in ever want to use it.

Take it. It’s a freebie on me.

Yeah, Tesla’s already using it.
