Do any of you have any odd stories or methods for how you came up with your band or album name? Personally, we just go with whatever name our guitarist thinks up (Jailbreak), and our album (if we ever make one) is gonna be The Grey Album, because me and our guitarist were just sitting around and saw that a band (I think The Hives) named their album "The Black and White Album" (maybe copying Metallica?), and decided "Hey, we should totally make fun of that". But, I should contribute at least one good story, so I will tell you this; a friend of my brothers band took a book of every species of animal known, and kept opening it to random pages, and then pointing at random parts and saying "that one!"; they ended up with "Garpike".

Well, me and a buddy were high, and he said "I've got to think to remember."

So we made a band on MySpace called Think to Remember while blazed. We deleted it the next day.

Release the wave,

I know this seems random, but I am going to try playing your username as a bass tab. I know says "Leet Geek", but I'm trying it anyways, because s is a slide, so I just have to ignore the k. Brb.

Well, after several names, we were about to settle with "Channel Three News Team" as our name for high school Battle of the Bands, but I don't like the number three, so we changed it to "Channel Four New Team". As we wrote it down of the sign up sheet, we realized, that when abbreiviated, it was C4NT, but imagine the 4 with the open top...
We made posters and t-shirts that basically said C UNT on them, but the teachers forced us to take them off, and they took our posters down.
BUT,
We won Battle of the Bands

I got the name of what my 'band' profile is on myspace from a poem I wrote.
I haven't actually uploaded anything yet...
but it's good to have it there just in case.
O! music: Click (Youtube)

Nice.


Btw, the first part of 1337s933k's username "1337s9" sounds pretty cool on the E string... I may use that...

In the first guitar hero when it said "(your band's name) rocked (where ever you are at)" I thought it'd be really funny to put Some Wh-ores. So it said "Some Wh-ores rocked your ass."

Well, I was sitting in History class one day, and we were talking about the Crusades. We got to the reconquering of Spain from the Moors, and the Christian general heading the offensive was Charles "The Hammer" Martel.

As soon as class was over, I called my bass player and was like "Martel. It's the band name," and it stuck.

I've got a bunch we made up either high or just acting stupid:

Cobblestone Mafia---suburban street gang in a upper class hood
Opie Got Older---watching Andy Griffith during a fit of hysterics and suddenly getting depressed
Bulletproof Zebras---hell if i know
Clipped Track---mixing a song on my computer
Indeppendix---thought of while i was in the hospital for an appendectomy
But Where Do We Go From Here---again, hell if i know
Future Flux---listening to the Flaming Lips
Viruses VS You---Got sick, thought of it
Machines In India---Flaming Lips idea
7hz of My Mind---Again, Lips.

so yeah

It was the Moors and yes, Charles Martel was badass.


If I'm ever in a band, I want it to be named either Bible Black or Cool Devices. Those are two anime porn titles that just have awesome names. Never seen them though.

To be honest I never figured my user name would become a subject of musical interest.

I'm honored.

You should be. It actually sounds pretty cool on a bass.

Haha that's amazing. When you're famous, use it as a bassline. Then credit me with inspiration in an interview.

so, our keyboardist was staying at this hotel and had breakfast there, so he got a danish. he ate the danish and was like, "whoa, this is one great danish." then, a couple of days later, me, him, and my other friend were playing on my old squier, a crappy keyboard, and some toy drum machine and we decided to start a band. i was like, "what should we call ourselves?" and my keyboardist just said, "THE GREAT DANISH."

effing. sweet.

we were all sitting around the "jam shack" thinking of the band name, and our drummer always said the word haggard reffering to old, used, tattered things. I thought it was a cool name, so we went with Haggard. Too bad I later found out like 4 other bands are names Haggard
