Im in a hardcore band called Fall From Below. Recently we recieved a message from another band with the same name basically letting us know they had it copyrighted and we needed to change the name, or else.

We came up with a list of names but cant decide which one we like best, so if you have any opinion as to which name you like the best it would help us to choose as well.


DO NOT VOTE FOR ACHILLES HEEL. IT IS COPYRIGHTED[/U]

None of those names are good, except for the last one.

Are you pondering what I'm pondering pinky?

I think so, Brain, but where would we buy rubber pants at this hour?

What kind of music? for the sake of chosing these names?


our influences are Born of Osiris, August Burns Red, Catherine, etc.

lots of fast melodic guitars, double bass and heavy breakdowns

I voted Achilles Heel. Mostly because me and a friend thought that we should make a band and call it "The Fall of Achilles"

Just to let everyone know "Achilles Heel" has the potential of being copyrighted but im not positive

The only name that is remotely decent is Achilles' Heel, but I guarantee you there are going to be dozens of other bands with that name out there. If you choose any of the other names, you guys will end up here.

You would have lots of company, but honestly, those names are awful. Don't try so hard to come up with something original. Think of something simple, easy to remember, and, if you're still around ten years from now, something you won't wish you hadn't picked.

Also, if you're really stuck on your current name (which isn't any better, honestly), check and see if it really is copywritten. These guys may have just heard about you somehow and are trying to scare you.

But, above all, come up with something good.

I'd vote Achilles Heel just to hope the band fails. Hardcore is GARBAGE.

How about just "Last Breath" like the Hatebreed song.



thats an idea we could consider

I voted come to nothingness. And then I laughed because I said come.

Seriously, band name = decision made amongst band members.

UG is going to choose the dumbest one, seriously.

yeah so we asked the pt since there are currently about 500 active viewers who are musicians and have good, honest opinions and most have probably been in the same position as us before.
Yes, i guess i am a loser for logging onto ultimate guitar for the first time in months to ask for help.

they all suck

expect for the first two need to be tweaked a little

(i.e. come to nothing and tension builds)

in my opinion, of course
