'Sup pit,

I'm in a band with my two brothers and my dad, along with an 'external' keyboard player. We play symphonic rock and some progressive metal. We've been rehearsing for about two years now, and have finally come to the point where everything is finished and we're ready to start gigging.

The process of writing lyrics and music wasn't all that hard for us, even though they aren't them simple 4 chord songs.

The only thing holding us back at this very moment is a fucking band name.

Our last name initials are DS, so of course we thought of 'DS4' but then I thought we may come off as a gay boysband.

Our last name roughly translates 'The creators', so my dad thought of 'Los Creatores'.
No need to mention this was the point we all pissed ourselves laughing.


Desperate as we all are, I came to the internet for help. ANY help would be appreciated.


I'll even appreciate some flaming, that's actually how desprate we are.


Greetings,
Desperate


PS: We have a gig coming up in august, and the hosts want to start printing the posters. So that's why we rung the alarm bell.
I fell asleep on my arm once, scariest thing that ever happened to me. I thought it was kill.

I thought Los Creatores sounds awesome man. But nobody knows how to pronounce that.

At least I don't.

Les Créateurs?
The Keyboard Stands Out
The Waltaa Brothers
Shaking Beard
My Jet Engine's Singing
Confectionator - My Cakes and I
Singing in 13/8
Beards As Leaders
Dream Creator

Is the recording on your profile representative of your current sound?

Oh shit is that still on there? No, that was many years ago, in high school.

I could fill a notebook with band names no one's thought of.

Be creative, use a damn thesaurus if you have too.


Anyone could fill a notebook with names. It doesn't mean that they're good.

Name yourselves after some gear you want, and get the company to sponsor you.

Orange Amps Trio + A Keyboard Player

Or something to that effect.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

recently had the same problem... a lot of good options wound up being already taken.

Although our name didn't totally come from one, the idea came from one of them band name generator website. bit of a cop-out, but after a month or so of arguing over names it proved helpful

Or the Orange Gibsons.

Not saying Gibsons are good, but they're expensive, so might as well.

Actually if we're going to be doing this...

Orange Marshalls and the PRS

Most band names are wank. It becomes meaningless once people become used to it, and that's pretty quickly.

Some of the biggest bands in the world have terrible bands names.

The Rolling Stones.
Coldplay
Nickleback
Smashing Pumpkins
Arctic Monkeys
Radiohead etc

I think there are some great names though.

Rage Against The Machine
Beatles
Led Zeppelin.
The Who
The Clash

Go ahead and spend your money, I don't care. It won't make you sound better.

Sure upgrading your gear will make you sound better.
