Band Name

My Easter was wonderful. But really? what’s better than hanging out with family and eating food. As a member of the “I love Crisco” club, eating food really makes any event much more wonderful. So Easter and Thanksgiving get extra thumbs up from the mike d department.

Saturday was spent with Jesse and Pindar doing some serious music. And we’re thinking about planning a Big Gig. It would be called The Big Gig. and would feature our band rocking hard for a good hour and a half. Location and times to be determined, but our preliminary estimation is right around July 22nd.

Anyway, we also came up with a few band names. And I’d love your opinion on them. In alphabetical order:

7% Hero
Asprin Snacks
The Imaginary Pushcarts

Which is your favorite?

    Be watchful of syllable overload. Bands with long names tend to get shortened when people are talking about them, i.e. Rage, STP, Op Ivy, TSOL, AFI, etc. “The Imaginary Pushcarts” could be shortened to either “The pushcarts” (not bad) or “TIP”, which isn’t as cool. Stay in control of your abbreviations!

    A 1.5 hour show sounds intense and awesome.

    Those names are pretty good, but I think you can do better.
    Of them Aspirin Snacks is clearly the best, it’s catchy.

    7% Hero sounds the most like a rock/alternative band, but it’s too complicated.

    Imaginary Pushcarts…sounds like something Jessie uses when insomnia hits and he starts sleep-grocery-shopping. Fatso.

    You need something a little more personal to you all, but still great. Like, Fatty Caboose and the Afraid of Being Eaten 5. Or maybe For Fear of Fatso. I also like Why is Mike Such a Jerk?

    Hey did you hear? Why is Mike Such a Jerk is playing!
    Really!? I love those guys.
    Me too…Except for Mike D.
    Of course, what a jerk.

    Sander’s just jealous because we won’t let him be in the band ever since he ate my snare drum, confusing it for a giant marshmallow… quel sacco grasso di grassa!

    I regret nothing.
    It was delicious.

    Although it does suffer from the too-many-syllables problem, I’ve always thought Numerous Unplanned Cupcakes would be an awesome band name.

    Speaking of over-long band names, mine and my friends’ theoretical band is called The Inaudible Sound Of The Tomlinson Skiffle Explosion (although it has since been shortened to The Inaudible Sound since it was a bit of a mouthful).
