You don't "get" a cool nickname. They are given to you. Be yourself, friend.

I don't think those are particularly cool, you probably think that because you like them so much.

I mean if Alice Cooper wrote crap music you probably wouldn't go feel the same way about the name.

i guess either your band mates name you a nick name or you kinda force them in calling you a nick name :confuse:

or when you meet your band for the first time, just go "hey my name is Slash" kinda thing

i dono im just typing whatever comes in my head right now

well "Ozzy" comes from his last name, Osbourne.

Alice Cooper was originally the band's name, but he legally changed it to his own name a while after.

Not sure about Jack White. Maybe he just picked it because its simple.

That should tell you how to pick your own nickname, if you REALLY want one..

Mine's "Slater" two reasons, my last name is Christensen, and they're retarded thinking it's "Christian"...Christian Slater. And my first name begins with an A. So...AC Slater, ended up being just Slater.

Ozzy was bullied as a kid because of his last name.
Jack White took his ex-wife's last name.
Alice Cooper was the name of the band but he just took the stage name.

You don''t make up your own nickname coz that's just lame.


I got branded "Ruski" because of my nationality. I like it. ^_^

Also, I think nick names in bands are kinda lame. I had a lot of respect for Avenged Sevenfold. Then I heard their nick names...I can't take them seriously anymore referring to themselves as those silly names.

a guy in my year ( he has ADHD or Asbergers or both, i forgot) makes random nicknames for random people. Mines "yuri isakov" (im asian ftw) another guy is called "eggbert", another called "dentist" (because he apparently looks like one, again asian ftw) and he calls a teacher "roger moore" cos he has a british accent.

and a few others like "charlie" "ernie subscript one" and "Domenic Van Demon"

dunno where he comes up with it

I agree, how could you POSSIBLEY give yourselves such stupid nick names if you were serious about music? Synister Gates? wtf, his real name is probably John Smith or something...

TS, you answered your question... with a question "how do they come up with them?" They just do. You don't have to be a mystical, magical gnome wombat kangaroo to have a nickname like Gimli the Marsupial... you give it to yourself. And to answer how they come up with one: they think of one.

You NEVER make your own nickname, someone has to give it to you, it usually involves some kind of mystical quest, eating a huge pizza in under 3 minutes is bound to get you a good one.
