Alright, me and my guitarist/friend are pulling together a band. We play classic hard rock, type Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple etc., and we can't decide name. I came up with a couple of names, but few of them were of interest to him. We ended up calling ourselves Dirt of the Iron =/
Now, I don't really like it; I think it's a bit too "HERE WE COME, LOOK AT US, WERE TOUGH AND TOO SERIOUS, WE'RE ****IN' METAL, WE'RE DAAAAAAARk". Now, what I think we should call us, is Fat Pony :D
I mean, face the facts: Fat Pony is a fun name, of which people will be able to remember. It's loose, it's not too serious, and still not too goofy.
Dirt of the Iron is a wannabe-tough name that will just pass by: "I don't remember what they were called...Uhh..It had something to do with dirt...." See what I mean? :P
So, I want my guitarist to see this pole, to see other peoples opinion. If you vote Fat Pony, that's awesome. If you vote Dirt of the Iron, then great. I just want peoples honest opinion about this. Maybe I could be wrong, though I doubt it. Feel free to elaborate on your choice with some comments.

May Fat Pony rock!! \m/ :p:

I don't think that Fat Pony is really in your face... Kinda dumb, actually. I don't like either.

Ok, maybe not really in your face, lol...But it's fun, I'd definetly have an easier time remembering a band named Fat Pony than Dirt of the Iron. And no, I won't call us "Fire Burning" or "All shall die" or something :p:

Alright, well, we're NOT gonna call ourselves Dirt of the Iron, so if it can't be Fat Pony, we'll come up with something else cool ;)

Fat Pony is a kind of neat name that is easy to remember, while Dirt of the Iron sounds INCREDIBLY cheesy and melodramatic.

Dirt of the Iron just sounds stupid. Pinch your friend for that one.

Honestly, I like Fat Pony. Maybe add another word, like Fat Little Pony, or Fat Pony Boy.

OMG, this didn't go aswell as expected :( I'd expect Fat Pony to totally own Dirt of the Iron, but now they're at a tie, both 17.

...Hmm...Vote Fat Pony!

those names suck. my band plays the same type of music and we're just called altar, should be noted that we're thinking of appending a contradictory word in front of it a la black sabbath

both names are terrible, i voted dirt of the iron though. it's a bad name but it isn't as stupid and gimmicky as fat pony

*awkward :p:

I wouldn't name my band Black Star either. Too many people would make references to Malmsteen because of the name, just like people here do me.

Ok, I've changed my mind, I'll call our band Mystic Cauliflower powered by a thousand dying suns.

I think Fat Pony has about the same kind of sound to it as Wolfmother, so if that is the kind of image you are wanting, it would work well.

Doubt the guitarist won't be in on that.
He thought we should call us "Dyestreat" *laughs mockingly*

Heh, I was with my Dad in the car a few hours ago and the radio DJ was talking about one of his roadtrips in America. One of the local blues bands he saw in Tennessee was called 'Razorblade and the Deep-cuts'.

Well, it depends on how serious you are. Are you hoping to "make it big" (with your genre :rolleyes: )? If yes, I would go back to the drwaing board. If your just going to be playing locally, then I think Fat Pony would be to your benefit.
