Alright, me and my guitarist/friend are pulling together a band. We play classic hard rock, type Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple etc., and we can't decide name. I came up with a couple of names, but few of them were of interest to him. We ended up calling ourselves Dirt of the Iron =/
Now, I don't really like it; I think it's a bit too "HERE WE COME, LOOK AT US, WERE TOUGH AND TOO SERIOUS, WE'RE ****IN' METAL, WE'RE DAAAAAAARk". Now, what I think we should call us, is Fat Pony
I mean, face the facts: Fat Pony is a fun name, of which people will be able to remember. It's loose, it's not too serious, and still not too goofy.
Dirt of the Iron is a wannabe-tough name that will just pass by: "I don't remember what they were called...Uhh..It had something to do with dirt...." See what I mean? :P
So, I want my guitarist to see this pole, to see other peoples opinion. If you vote Fat Pony, that's awesome. If you vote Dirt of the Iron, then great. I just want peoples honest opinion about this. Maybe I could be wrong, though I doubt it. Feel free to elaborate on your choice with some comments.

May Fat Pony rock!! \m/

I don't think that Fat Pony is really in your face... Kinda dumb, actually. I don't like either.

Ok, maybe not really in your face, lol...But it's fun, I'd definetly have an easier time remembering a band named Fat Pony than Dirt of the Iron. And no, I won't call us "Fire Burning" or "All shall die" or something

Alright, well, we're NOT gonna call ourselves Dirt of the Iron, so if it can't be Fat Pony, we'll come up with something else cool

Fat Pony is a kind of neat name that is easy to remember, while Dirt of the Iron sounds INCREDIBLY cheesy and melodramatic.

Dirt of the Iron just sounds stupid. Pinch your friend for that one.

Honestly, I like Fat Pony. Maybe add another word, like Fat Little Pony, or Fat Pony Boy.


.....Fat Pony of Love?

OMG! Wants me to start a new band right now

those names suck. my band plays the same type of music and we're just called altar, should be noted that we're thinking of appending a contradictory word in front of it a la black sabbath

I wouldn't name my band Black Star either. Too many people would make references to Malmsteen because of the name, just like people here do me.

I think Fat Pony has about the same kind of sound to it as Wolfmother, so if that is the kind of image you are wanting, it would work well.
