So, me and the singer of my band disagree on the band name. I'm not going to tell you which one I support, so this will be neutral.

I realize there's a band name thread in bandleading, but I've been there before, and help is quite rare. Plus, I can't make a poll IN the thread.

So, which of the two names above do you prefer? The band is Alternative. Our main influences are The Silversun Pickups, Smashing Pumpkins and (in my case) Placebo.

Both aren't really good.
Oh, you wouldn't want an angel watching over
Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wanna watch

They both are crappy. If I saw a flier saying "Come See *One of those names,*" I would scoff at their emo-ness.
In what way are either of them emo?
#8
The first one is better. The second one is overly long and sounds like some hipster douche wearing an ironic hoodie with an annoying girlfriend that looks like Haley Williams and draws on herself came up with it.
#11
Mariposa = album name
Right Next To Clouds = band name
Because we seperate... it ripples our reflections.

You could make a poll in Bandleading, though. Both names are awful anyway.

Anything involving clouds in a band title is emo. Any band name that's one word that isn't commonly used is emo.


Are you calling clouds gay? If you are i'm going to kick your ass. My favorite hobbie is staring at the clouds and crying. You, my friend, are a douche. (just kidding, Your not my friend)

You know what comes from clouds? Rain. And you know what follows rain?

Rainbows.

Coincidence?

It sounds like you are gay too for liking clouds. Oh, and you wrote "kick" in your second sentence. I think you meant to write "fuck".

Nice choice of the Spanish word for "butterfly."
Did you actually know that off the top of your head?

Did you honestly sit there arguing and then go:

"WAIT! Why are we arguing like such children? let us decide this like MEN!... I'll go ask the Pit."

Well, we're playing somewhere in about a week, and we haven't been able to agree on a bandname. We ended up agreeing that if either of the two got more than 60% of the vote on here, we'd take that name, at least for this show.

I speak Spanish pretty well. I think some people also use the word for "night light."

I actually had to look that one up when the singer originally came up with it; kudos for knowing it.

I voted for Mariposa, purely to tie it up.


Both are a'ight, neither jumps out though.

i'm sorry, but who considers crying as a hobby? yes a good cry once in a while is good for you. but for a hobby? do you actually get pleasure out of it? and no i'm not trying to be a dick, i'm just curious.

Those are two of THE WORST band names I've ever seen.
Like punk the way it used to be? Deranged Youth Its like what Warped Tour should be!

Want to hear something mind-blowing? Pit O' Bodies Its like an amateur hypnotist plus the Spanish Inquisition!
