The Shortlist – My Favourite Band Names

Writing a list of band names is one of my favourite forms of procrastination. During revision for my university finals I filled two sides of A4 with potential bands names. I’ve since lost that list, but most of the names were taken from programmes or songs I like. These were some of my favourites shows, like South Park (Leopold) or Futurama (Turanga).

I’ve kept this idea going. Taking your name from something that you like an enjoy seems to hit rules 2 to 6 from my self imposed criteria put forward in the previous post. This is probably because your letting someone else doing the thinking for you.

With that in mind I present to you a list of potential names for the band. Most of these are taken from song names and album tracks, but a few are non music related. If you can work out where 5 or more of them are from without using Google you win a Brownie point!

If there are any that you particularly like or dislike please comment. I’ll whittle down the list and present them to the Rafferty and Jacko at our next practice. In my next post I’ll let you know which is my personal favourite.
