Choosing a band name


MagnAn

Recommended Posts

A few months ago some of my friends and me have formed a band.

Now that we want to makes ourselves known on for instance YouTube, we need a name.

 

The past few days I've been thinking about names.

I've come to the conclusion that finding a good name is pretty damn hard, so I was wondering if anyone can help me.

 

Some information about us:

Our band has 5 members: 1 lead guitar, 1 rhythm guitar, a drummer, a singer and I play bass guitar, keyboards and I sing too.

We mainly play rock and hard rock covers for now, so we have no songs of our own as of yet.

 

I hope you have some ideas for names or tips on where to find inspiration.

 

Thank you in advance,

MagnAn

 

P.S. If this is in the wrong subforum, please move it.

Look for something related to your band, for example, Guns N' Roses picked their name because the band was formed when members of two bands, the L.A Guns and the Hollywood Rose united, Green Day went from Sweet Children into Green Day due to their "fondness of marijuana", and Linkin Park is a play on of Santa Monica's Lincoln Park, which I guess is because the original members of the band are from California.

 

So yeah, look for something in common with you guys, a place where you hang out or in general, something that's related to you or the music, and when you find that, play with the name to create something that's plain swag. For example, if you're stoners and you want to use that as a basis for the name, don't call yourselves the Band Of Blazers, but the Super Stoners, or something prefarably less lame. Hope this helps!

Thanks for those tips, maybe I can work with that.

 

Also, I should point out that I'm looking for three words at the most.

It seems very easy to name a band these days. Just pick random sentences, and make them incomplete. I bolded a few in your quote as an example.

You should make it something outrages to draw attention to your band, have people remember the name and appeal to the deviant crowd (i.e. 90% of American teenagers).

 

I recommend "Stretching Anus Boys."

You should call yourselves Aerosmith. That's a great band name.

Think of a random event in history perhaps? A lot of musicians name their bands after inside jokes so your band could think of a funny event that has hapoened that is important to you guys.
