So, my band's being thinking about a new name, and came up with a couple of options. I have a pretty good idea what the Pit will pick, but any semi-serious feedback is appreciated I can't really give a genre. I'd like to say we have our own thing, but really, we're just all over the place.

inb4 what you really need is a new amp

Actually, now I'll say something now there is a poll.

TBH; I think you should stick with your current one.
#5
My Demon Princess sounds like a Screamo band name or something, so I say pick that and go all out screamo, or just do what you're doing with the name you have.
#6
I'll give you what genre's come to (my) mind when I hear these namesL

No Skids Daddy - Some kind of hard rock/classic rock revival band or possibly hair metal.

Jizz Monkeys - Straight up punk/hardcore.

L'Atalante - Alt-rockish, but with keyboards.

My Demon Princess - Metalcore/Screamo

Remote Control - Techno-ish elements in a rock band

The B-Rads - couldn't quite figure this one out TBH

"What the, Pikachu is...Congratulations, God decided your Pikachu is now a Raichu."


So what...I like Metal...sue me

You should pick something that's easy to spell and remember. Remote Control was the best for that reason.

That's what I had in mind when I said I had a pretty good idea of what the most voted one would be Every member picked one name to be considered, and these may not be the ones we finally go with. We're just looking for opinions on them, and if any of them should be seriously considered.
#15

I have no good recommendations, but you can use my cheesy joke band names if you want.

White Venom

Rattle off a small list of bands who influence you guys and (if possible) a small sample of your music and I'll give you a name.

See, those are good band names. But incredibly generic. Like Remote Control, easy to understand, and it sounds like a band name. But that's sort of the problem I personally have. They sound like just another local band, nothing special, nothing incredibly eye-catching and attention-grabbing. That's also why I'm not incredibly fond of the name "My Demon Princess" because it makes it sound like just another screamo band, and someone's mind is already made up about the band before hearing them. It actually came out of a song I had jokingly improv'd about a demon fetish Then another member thought it might make a decent band name. I don't think any of them are bad, just bland. Of course that's just IMO, there's more band members, and other's opinions.

El Topo The Mole. Do it. It basically means The Mole The Mole.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

K.

First piece of advice would be to choose a song title or a lyrical passage from one of those bands' songs as a band name. Kinda pay homage, you know?

Secondly: Animals are, 90% of the time, awesome when used as band names.

Thirdly: Your band is now known as "Razorhoof"

Dammit - http://www.myspace.com/remotecontrolrocks

http://www.myspace.com/jizzmonkeyband (though we might be able to get away with sharing this name due to that band's very small fanbase and lack of "s")

The rest are free to use.

Scratch Remote Control. Jizz Monkeys is debatable.

L'Atalante is my personal favorite, although I think you should look for more options as well..to be honest, I don't like any of them all that much.

Remote Control is the best one on there, Jizz Monkeys is only winning because it has jizz in the name
