It wouldn't be legal if the name is copyrighted...

I didn't think you could copyright song titles.

You can name your band whatever you want (obviously as long as the name isn't taken.) If you play music in the same vein as Taking Back Sunday, you should at least brace yourself for comparisons or allegations of "ripping" them off. It's up to you, though, if you like the name, use it.

You can't compose yourself
It's best to compose a poem
An honest verse of longing
Or a simple song of hope...

You can't copyright song titles.

And as long as the name isn't taken then it is ok. But people will think you are influenced by Taking Back Sunday

you could spell it cut, but with a little accent marker above the u. that'd be kinda cool.

well we live in a small town so if we played in the drummers garage we would be heard by half the town and all the ppl in our town is friends with everyone in towns around us....so if they heard us b4 they knew the name, then they would know....and then once we get a purevolume/myspace i think we'll have about 600 "fans" by then because everyone knows everyone and with exeption with the ppl that listen to rap, all of us pretty much like every band.... but we would be more of an Atreyu/ Emery mix....yeah, i know difficult but still....i know this all sounds dumb and hopefull, but i know my town...
