We are making a band and the singer wants to name it after himself after we already came to the conclusion of Arctic Distorstion

Its not like he is even that great of a singer anyways.

We dont know to kick him out or just not play until he quits.

Just give him a tambourine and start playing instrumentals. That way he won't bitch about getting kicked out of the band and you guys won't have to deal with him.

Or, if he continues to bitch about the name, simply jam two straightened paper clips into his eyes.

nah, just dont take him seriously, just be like "haha *smack him on the back* funny joke" and just act like he never said it, and when he keeps saying you should, just say something like, man that joke is getting old....

I couldn't stand to be around somebody that would want to name a band after themselves unless:

A. They are a phenomenal singer

or

B. They have a name with an alliteration

Tell him to stfu, kick him out, and get a singer who isn't a douchebag who thinks he's the star and he's the one leading the band.

A band to me is an entity, with all members working together, without one person leading it.

He's a douche but Arctic Distortion is a stupid name. Everyone will think you're trying to rip off Arctic Monkeys even if you don't sound like them.

Agreed. No band can EVER use arctic in their name again, lest they be compared to the arctic monkeys.
Also, no band can have "the" in it, because THE beatles had that in their name.

"The" is a common word. "Arctic" is a very uncommon word unless you live in the Arctic.

You fail at common sense.

Yeah, if he has a name like Van Halen, use it cause its cool. Otherwise, you could do a Ramones and all change your name to something and use that, but people will think you're ripping off the Ramones so i dunno...

I agree with both kicking your singer out, and the fact that the band name you currently have isn't that good, since it brings to mind both The Arctic Monkeys and Social Distiortion. I know it's hard to come up with a good band name these days, but it's not really that important until you start playing shows and releasing demos. Just make your music as good as it can be, then concentrate on the name.

you should "look, bitch" him.

To "Look, Bitch" someone, you must point and say "look, bitch".

If someone "Look, Bitch"es you, then you respond with "No, YOU look, bitch", while pointing angrily.

This beautiful combination of words serves the important function of establishing the authority of members over other (sub)humans.

Look, bitches, "look, bitch"ing is a serious matter. Members need to know how the system works, how to conduct themselves, and how to respond in any situations.

Look, bitches, when someone comments to you and you detect the smallest amount of sass in their tone, you cut them off with a swift "look, bitch" and remind them who's boss.

Keep looking, bitches, if you pause mid-rant, start again with "keep looking, bitch" to remind them again that the boss is talking.

Keep looking, bitches. If someone tries to look, bitch you, cut them off with a louder "No, YOU look, bitch".

You better still be looking, bitches. The phrase is "look" followed by a comma and space ", " followed by "bitch" which is never followed by an exclamation mark. Look bitches, exclamation marks are for pansies that need to yell to get the point across. Keep your cool.

I say since a good singer isnt easy to come by try to tell him that you are not naming it after him if you do then who will know the other members???? nobody but if he isnt that good then just smack him and say....

your fired..... and then walk away with your band and he will cry. so much drama....

you fail at sensing sarcasm.

tell your singer that a band is a group effort, therefore if he doesn't like how the group wants to run itself then he should leave.

plus we all know only guitarists get the privilege of naming bands after themselves

I suggest kicking him out or getting things straight and show him that he's not the boss.

My drummer thinks my last name is cool and would like to name our band that. My last name is "Valdez" and I would like to know what you guys think of that as a band name.

tell him that you guys are a group and you have to all agree on something rather than letting some cocky asshole take it over. if your band ever goes big he will probably quit soon after to work on his "solo career" which won't go anywhere (like most arrogant frontmen).

I wish I had a say in my band's name, but they formed 6 months before I joined....so meh. Naming a band after the singer, for all the named reasons thus far, is dumb. If I ahd a say in naming a band, I would go with Paper Cranes....I don't know why, I just think it's a good band name.
