Here is a list of 10 original band names currently going unused (according to a recent Google search). So if you’re a group of amateur/professional musicians who just started jamming together and are struggling to come up with the perfect name to describe your daring and unique sound, look no further than these ten gems of musical identity.
While shaving is optional for this band, songs about alcohol and thinly veiled leftist propaganda are not.
Bold, sweaty and dangerous. This is a name not afraid to push the boundaries with its in-your-face sound of blaring guitars and booming drums. Look out below!
Darkness and self-loathing would seem like obvious attributes to a band name of this stature but the real beauty of SIKW is the “Hot Topic” inspired color palette.
Clean-shaven and all about the ladies. This musical moniker lends itself to any group of dudes with fender guitars trying to score some chicks.
MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION!?! Not only are these distortion-heavy ballads moving and gut-wrenching, they are also socially relevant!!
I could see Sting announcing this band as alternative artist of the year at next year’s Grammys.
Plenty of high-hats, funky bass grooves and a bald dude in shades not afraid to tickle the keys. Or some euro-trash house band. Either way.
Serious potential with a name like this. If you’re a two piece blues-inspired rock outfit (a la Black Keys or White Stripes) this has your name all over it.
While you’re not going to release anything that will blow people’s minds, you could end up with a catchy song on Rockband 3.
Maybe you’re a southern rock band trying to be progressive and artistic but still write songs about moonshine and that old creek.
