So my band and I are pretty bad at coming up with names for our glam/heavy metal band. Was hoping you guys could help us? Thanks

You need something that will be catchy, or dirty, or just anthemic. Look at names of glam songs you like or even check out their lyrics; you might find something (that's how Firehouse found their name - in a Kiss song! another example for it, Autograph took it from Photograph by Def Leppard, and Crashdiet from an unreleased GN'R song)
You can also name the band after someone in it (Bon Jovi, Van Halen).
Rattlesnake works for me!

Stinky Finger, lol. Or if you can find some way to integrate some kind of big cat name in there, ala steel panther. Remember, Pantera were a total glam band before the inevitable heavy ass groove style they pioneered in the 90's. Try something like Cougar, or El Tigre. Or Sabre Tooth! Really anything on the corny side would probably work. Just some others off the top of my head, Burn, Gasoline, The Fire, and I like where tomba93 was goin with Rattlesnake. Maybe Diamondback??? Is King Cobra taken???

The last name of the band leader and/or singer is a common choice. Van Halen, Dokken, Bon Jovi, Dio, Guns 'n' Roses, Giuffria, Vandenberg, Keel, Slaughter, Winger, Montrose, Nelson, etc.

Edit: Whoops. I didn't see someone beat me to my answer. Oh well, here are some more examples.
