Thats just kind of stupid...honestly.
Not even that controversial. Just kind of lame. Try to get something more original.

Columbine sounds like a cool name.

If you want controversy, call your band Seung-Hui Cho & The Tech Students.

So I just woke up sitting in my desk chair, with my bong on the desk in a bunch of little pieces and my hand super glued to my penis. Speculations as to what the hell just happened and how to unglue my hand from my member would be appreciated.

It's not offensive, it's just stupid.
You're being controversial for the sake of being controversial, and it's moronic.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Seriously, you'd get more noteriety with a name that insulted Oprah. The downside would be that if you got famous enough she would bring you on her show and make you cry.

Do you have an artistic purpose in naming your band as such? No? Then don't.

wow... ... real controversial....


A controversial name would like The KKK but it a black guy as the singer. now that is controversial

Not really. Controversial would be calling your band the KKK and then banning black people from your concerts.

No. That's not how it works. No one is angry or offended by the name, only by your continuing to breathe and, God forbid, breed sometime in the future. The name isn't controversial. It reeks of fourteen year old kids in their basements trying to be hardcore.

There's a point at which a name is offensive but not perceived as outrightly disrespectful. You've missed that line entirely and ended up with a name that just shouldn't be used.

I appreciate shock value to an extent but this is downright dumb.
#33
its ridiculously obvious that you're trying to do this for shock value

if it wasn't metal, something really soft and acoustic, then you'd have real shock value when people listen to you. but at this point you look like another shameless attempt at ..whatever.

i mean it has a nice sound, but since you brought this up explicitly its downright stupid. change it to columbina or something.
i have a 'white guitar'

Columbine is actually the State Flower of Colorado, where the school was located. There are a lot of things named after the flower in the state, predating the massacre. I remember skiing down a slope named "Columbine" thinking, "Isn't that a rather insensitive name for a ski slope?"


I propose that whenever someone makes an asinine thread in MT we just start talking about Scrubs.

Before I quote Dr. Cox, I'd like to remind everyone of those great "You might be a goth if" lists. The one I remember listed all these crazy things about animal sacrifice and 666 and stuff like that, then randomly said "you own a skateboard." Coming from an adult (19) female, I will tell you that skate culture is not cool.

As promised, a Dr. Cox quote, the standard one:

To protest your naming of your band "Columbine," which, by the way, is in incredibly poor taste, I'm going to stop typing in the middle of a

Depends how you market it.
If you market it as a tribute towards those that died at Columbine and give half of any money you make with it to a Columbine based charity, you might just get away with it, but seriously, if you're just going for shock value, forget it. That kinda shock value will only be a hinderance to your band.
#37
Maybe controversial, but also unoriginal a quick search of myspace finds a few pages of bands with that name.

Seriously if you can't do better than that, don't even have a name.
