I have another game for you guys this week. The game’s real title should be Band Name Generator, but the title of this post is the result of the game. Just go to BandNameMaker.com. This site allows you to enter a word which it then uses to generate random band names that include your word.
For instance, you enter the word simian, and the site spits out (among other names) Super Simian and the Muffin. If you enter the phrase sweater-fondler, it may respond with Chronicle of the Sweater-Fondler God.
I don’t know if it was the site malfunctioning or just messing with me, but it occasionally replied with one-word band names that didn’t use any word I’d entered (like when it suggested I simply name my band Octopus).
The goal is to end up with a band name that you’d be proud to have show up on a marquee; the key is to choose great starting words. See what you can come up with and post your band names in the comments section of this post. Rock on.
