Dwight D Weisenheimer. What's your fake band called?[More:] Not real fake bands (or fake real bands), but a name you'd use if you had a band. That is, assuming you don't already have a band. If you need a jump start, there are few up for grabs at the Ten Thousand Statistically Grammar-Average Fake Band Names page.

Others my list include The Laughing Accountants, Emu What?, The 1919 Boston Molasses Flood, Hertz Donut, Retractable Wet Meat Parlor, and Maximum Henway.
I had a dream 2 nights ago that involved a band called The Aluminum Cans, so I might go with that.

It was going to be Evil Spoon. The first album was going to be "Songs from the Mystic Mountain." Except we couldn't play our instruments. :(

In college, my friends and I joked that we'd start a band called Flaming Snot.

I like "The Shit Creek Boys," even though Ween thought of it first.

The Death Grip 4000

My son performs a lockhold on my husband almost every night after dinner. Being about a gazillion times stronger, my husband breaks free in about a nanosecond. My son's named his hold The Death Grip 3000. I always ask him what happened to The Death Grip 2000 and The Death Grip 1000, because the 3000 version really sucks.

I was going to use "The Boxed Meat Revolution", after a local frozen food store...but someone beat me to it.

I have always wanted to be in a band called either Up with People UK or Soylent Teen, but those names always get shot down. Hard.

I always fancied the name "My Fellow Astronauts" for a psychedelic rock band. Apparently that's how Dan Quayle addressed NASA.

Oh, my Norweigan Black Metal band is called Nekro Wafer.

The Physical Jerks
posted by hlewagast 11 October | 13:58
top pick:The Elders of Zion (debut album: The Protocols)
the rest
The Slutty Monkeys, Nipple Twist, Thundarr and the Barbarians, My Ugly Pony, The Theoretical Attitudes, Booty Juice, Zipper Face, Slaughterhouse 11, The Apologists, Assloads of Dead Flies, The Karate Kids, The Microsofts (no. 1 single: "so sue me."), Inner Ear Itch.

agropyron: Ocean of Tentacles would be an excellent band name. Definitely better than "Ocean of Testicles."

I think dodgygeezer just came up with my favorite one:

the Blithering Jacininnies of the First Water

My Christian band would be called John & the Synoptics.

I'd name my band "Dulcinea's Distress" and my first album: "Fuck the Windmills". ;)

I've always been partial to Maxim magazine's house band name: Hookers and Blow. But since that is already taken, I'm going to have to go with The Throat Punchers. First album: We'll cut you.
posted by haqspan 11 October | 16:36
Well, "posotrision" sounds cool.

"The million ton fish" after a dream I had the other night.


Better Living Through Genocide.

can't think of any good ones, really.

Instant Siberia - a friend of mine stole that and actually used it, but I don't think they ever went anywhere much, so maybe I can have it back now.

I have a list a mile long somewhere, but my fave is Caution Children.
posted by me3dia 11 October | 17:50
Holy crap, apparently the Caution Children exist -- well, did for awhile, anyway. Their site is no longer functioning.

I named a band the Touch Monkeys after a bit of lyric from a Talking Heads song. They didn't last long, so I could probably reclaim that as my band name.

However, my DJ name, should I ever get behind the turntables/iPod/whatever, shall be DJ Jaded.
