Come on! If you had a band, what would you call it?
I just saw the perfect name for my French trance band: ANAL CROISSANT



A friend had a black metal band called LITTLE RABBIT

True story - one of my friends at school (although, at this point in the story, we are in the sixth form/college - mid to late 90s) was bass player in a band called Free Beer. The band name wasn't his choice, but the thinking behind it was that it would increase audience numbers just because some idiots would assume there would be free beer (which there wasn't). I don't think it actually worked though, cos their biggest audience was at a free music festival, and their highest profile gig at the Fleece & Firkin in Bristol was barely half full (and the Fleece is a SMALL venue).

Since then, I've noticed a couple of other bands (all novelty/wedding bands - at least the band my friend was in had serious intentions and they played 100% original material) also called Free Beer. Whether it's worked for them or not, I don't know.

In recent years, I learnt that my friend (who I've not seen since '98 or '99) put down the bass after several failed attempts to get other music projects off the ground, and is now an artist and member of a human circus in Wales.


If I had a band, I would call it Free Blowjobs.

I've another example of ignoring the cool name route to find one instead that served a purpose.  Back in the days before we decided to exist in the eyes of HMRC, we'd always try to get the band's fee as cash in hand.  Unfortunately, this wasn't always possible and occasionally we'd get handed a cheque at the end of the night.  Our guitarist suggested that we called ourselves CASH, as that way there'd be no problems getting the cheque cashed and we'd still be effectively tax-invisible
