SethMegadefan
09-19-2005, 06:23 PM
I've always thought that Iron Maiden is a pretty sweet band name. Especially considering what an Iron Maiden is... yeeeaaahhh, that rocks.

I think Theory of a Deadman sounds cool, its just too bad that the band itself is a Nickelback knockoff. (Why is it that everything chad kroger lays his hand on winds up sounding like him)

knerken
09-20-2005, 08:42 AM
Motorhead and Turbonegro are the best names ever

Whoever said Stratovarius was a bad name, I don't know why you'd say that, I think it sounds awesome. I'd put them in my "Good names" list. Anyway...

TheWretched
01-05-2006, 11:44 PM
Ok, well since the other thread was closed I guess I'll just repost in here.
I personally think TOOL is a pretty cool name. Not only is it short and simple, but it also ironically a good name for many of their fans. Alot of them have this 'know-it-all' attitude and think that there is absoultely no one and has never been anyone to top them. I understand that you always stand behind your favorite band but some just get out of control. Every one of those fans just ends up being a darn 'Tool' which is against everything the band stands for. *'Think for yourself question authority' comes to mind*
Don't get me wrong here. I myself love Tool. They're without a doubt my fave band but I can also admit that some of the fans are just...crazy

Also, I like the name Nine Inch Nails. I don't think there's any special meaning behind it, but I just like the sound of it. Heh. And the abbreviation is pretty cool, I guess.

Doppleganger
01-06-2006, 12:03 AM
Nine inch nails was the name they chose when someone in the band mentioned i think the vietnam war or something
and they said when they were running out of weapons their even dropping nine inch nails.

pretty sure thats how they got it

kiefermatot
01-06-2006, 02:54 AM

i still think it's a dumb name. they should have left it at victims of a down. it's a little bit better but not much. maybe they should have stolen one of blink 182's lines and called themsleves the Unsuspecting Victims of a Down. would have made one hell of a name. :p:

Alright. One band that was awesome and not around long at all was called "Blind Faith" with Stevie Winwood. Great name and they had an amazing song called low spark high heel boys or something like that. Weird name but totally awesome song.

A bad name: Clan of Xymox. they do some weird electronic / techno stuff.
I agree with previous poster, Rainbow is an awesome band with a lame name.

I'd have to say that "InMe" is a truly awful band name.

I'd also like to point out that Death Cab For Cutie got their name from a Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band song. Both the song and the band kick ass.

And Coheed & Cambria is an awesome name once you know why they chose it.

I reckon stupid band names are "the" band names with just one word...like the beatles, the subways, the vines etc. It's just stupid. Your not beatles are you? you dont even resemble beatles.

I dont mind it though if its something like the actic monkeys, the receiving end of sirens etc. cause thats a bit different.

Red hot chili peppers is a good name i reckon, and queens of the stone age.
The killers is a name i hate, why are they called that? Seems like they couldn't think of anything so they just tried to make themselves sound hardcore.

Avenged Sevenfold (also known as A7X) is a metalcore band from Huntington Beach, California, formed in 1999. The title Avenged Sevenfold is taken from the biblical story of Cain and Abel in Genesis 4:15(NIV), which reads, "But the Lord said to him, Therefore whoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold'"

I dont like you anymore Caitlin lol

Double Trouble (SRV and the fellas) It's catchy and simple, i like it.

Worst? Panic! At the Disco (it's amusing for the first 3 seconds of discovery. and then it gets INSANELY annoying to hear repeated in conversation)

I think Green Day is a good bad name, seeing it also has meaning behind it. Bad Religion, the Who and the Sex Pistols are good names too.

I don't really like any band names those emo bands use.

I think an interesting name is jimmy eat world
further the hives, franz ferdinand

bad name:
rammstein. a band with the name of an army base.....great
Ramstein is the US air force base where two jets collided at an air show and crashed into the crowd... Rammstein is a german word for ram stone - the pointed rock you attach to the end of a battering ram when you're storming a castle or something...
Personally, I think it's a ****in awesome name
Turbonegro is cool too

The Sound is the best name ever.

Also, Rage Against The Machine.

Do you know where A7X took that quote in your sig from? :p: They also got the name "Bat Country" from it. Some of that music video is similar also(desert, red convertable, hitch hiker, bats everywhere, vegas, lizard tongues and tails on the people, hotel room) anyways...they stole all those ideas from a movie. Anybody know what it is?



And the best band name would have to be "Theres A Fly In The House"(My Band :p: ), Molly Hatchet, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Nevermore, Pantera
The worst: The Who, Greenday, Good Charlotte, Devo, Adema, AFI, Alien Ant Farm

"Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas", starring Johnny Depp and based on the book by Hunter S. Thompson who died just over a year and a half ago.

All you people who said Metallica as a kickass name do realise in gardening it's some sort of flower thing?

And best band name ever Megadeth, even if it is spelt wrong...

Worse name ever....hmm....H.I.M although it stands for something, it makes talking about them really difficult..

panic at the disco, on the other hand, is rubbish
