    Rock, all sorts, not a single type.

    I meant Taiga as in the forest type...

    I'm sure that quite a few of those names are taken. Have tried googling all of them?

    No, I haven't, but good idea. Even if they are taken, but not copyrighted, I can still use them

    I think Run Pig Run would make a cool band name. That or Six Shooter. But what would I know, i'm only fishing up song titles.

    Well, half the reason to be in a band is to attract chicks, so my 2 suggestions would be Men Without Pants, or, 4 Horny Guys.

    I like the variety of name choices- did each member submit some of the names? If so, I think you can draw some pretty good guesses of each submitee's interests...

    I really like "The Crowns." Even though "the ____" names are done to death, I still like them.

    The one that jumps out at me as godawful is "Malleability." Don't use a nominalized adjective as a bandname. It sounds pretentious.

    I was in a band called "The Managers," a name I really liked. The band went nowhere, so feel free to steal it.

    Glad you liked so many of my suggestions.

    If you go with "Embargo" then you can write a song or name an album "O' Grab Me," that's Embargo backwards.

    Keep 'em coming SF, I'm making a ska band and the best name me and my friends have come up with as of now is ©Legintamint (pronounced lejint-a-mint), mostly derived from an inside joke. Our first album will be called Legintamint: Totally Legit!

    It's nice that we're getting it together while we're all sophomores, plenty of time to make decisions. And we're all musically inclined.

    Love em both! Just bought Streeetlight's version of Keasbey Nights and I've got Dear Sergio stuck in my head :)

    I'm trying to decide what arrangement I want to go with, maybe 2 bones 2 trumpets, but I play the hell out of my trombone, so I'm not sure we'll really need a 2nd. And of course there's always the complaint of larger bands that they can't live off of their pay....

    "these chicks don't even know my name or my band. But they're all on me like they wanna hold hands. Cuz once I blow they know that I'll be the man. All because I'm the lead singer of my band!"
