Today I was thinking about some of his musical endeavors over the years, and how many bands he has been a part of, and which of those bands had the best name. I'm a sucker for band names.
I like the name of his solo work "band" The Alternate 85's, because I like Back to the Future references, and it fits the purpose, which is, that it's a way to share all the alternate music he creates. (Alternate, not alternative. I used the right word.) I also like The Heroin Mary's, which he formed with some other guys on MacJams, for the purpose of writing songs about the show LOST (NERD ALERT!!!). Except that I think this is also the band name for someone who has played at RamFest 2008, whatever that is (NERDIER ALERT!!!).
So it got me thinking. What would you name a band?
And because I'm not totally lame, and I give as much as I receive, my solo band name would be Spaghettification. Or maybe I stole Lennon's band name. I guess you'll never know. (It's Lennon's)
By the way, I love fake band names, and so I will list a few of my favorites:
Left Turn Arrow (fake emo band, created by someone I don't know. But someone I do know directed a video for the guy, and this still makes me chuckle, so I love talking about it)
Botany for Boys (Eric will have to remind me why he came up with this fake name. I think it was supposed to be his band name if he were doing 80's pop, but I can't be sure)
Hooray for Yourself (this was my brother's, and it's not even a band name, I don't think, but it should be. I love it so much, I wish it were my idea)
Cronus' Fury (my death metal band. Alternate name: Kronus' Fury, with an umlaut over the 'u's)
1/2 Eyes (my weepy, black sweater, oversized horn-rimmed glasses, songs about mythology and blonde girls band, We do a lot of ironic Christmas songs)
And maybe Jason can help me remember the name of our fake boy band. The one where we made the Mystery Meat video? Was it The Lunchline Boys? If it's not, it should have been.
Okay, your turn. Give me some band names. They don't have to be this awesome, but you should at least TRY.
