Giant Dougal
Bernard Cribbins Still Alive
Babushka Bistra

Here's some band names that , as far as I know, haven't been used yet ( maybe there are some small-town garage band who have coincidentally adopted one or two of these names, who knows?). Which of these band names have the biggest chances of success,should a band decide to adopt them? Can you think of any other names for potentially successful bands? Well, can you? Hmmmm?

I often wonder how many of the fictional HMHB band names got taken up.  Off the top of my head:

Liquid Greek
Evil Gazebo
Fuck Your Conglomerate
Phuture Doom
TBA
Curry Night

I dreamt a load of band names a few years ago. And woke up and wrote them all down. It was the clearest dream I ever had. I can't find the notes but from memory.

Trash - post-90s glam britpop
Daniel In The Lion's Den - Alt Hip Hop
Victory: Jesus - Christian Rock
Woodfugus - Prison-Burzum style lo-fi keyboard only Black metal
Bin -  Supported Graham Coxon in 2005
The Field Goals - American Teenage Fanclub wannabees.
Child Molester - Breakcore/gabba
Michael - Electro pop. Maybe Electroclash or romo.

There were more. I'll get back to you.

Edit: The weirdest thing is I think most of these are actually quite good. My subconcious is far more creative than my waking self.

Back before we fell out, my friend sent me a text: “Good name for our band: Electric Donkey”.
This wasn’t why we fell out, but in hindsight maybe it should have been.
