The Walmart Workers' Union
or, to avoid trademark/copyright issues:
The Mallmart Workers' Union
(with apologies/thanks to Barbara Ehrenreich who used that alternate name for "wallyworld")

and yet another variation on a previous name:
The Dawkins Star Cult

They May Already Be In Use, But.....

Being in bands myself over the years, finding a good band name was always a difficult task. It always seemed that all the good names were taken:

Dinosaur Jr.
Murder Junkies (one of GG Allin's many bands)
The Staggering Drunks (local band. If you can find them online, check em out)
Thunderfuck (one of the names Metallica toyed with in the early days)
Bunchofuckingoofs (a personal favorite, and a great punk band as well)
Slayer (Need I say more?)

After much deliberation, my band finally decided on Crooked Veins. It's named after a novel "Crooked Little Vein" by Warren Ellis. I'm pretty happy with it.

    Slayer: God Hates Us All
Emily Blunt

Huzzah! Band Names!

Oemgi - pronounced 'oh em gee'
French Scene Breakdown - Technical Theatre term. I always have this image in my head of a French scene girl having a meltdown whenever I hear it.
The Brightest Crayon In The Toolbox - inspired by one of the many ditzy things to come out of my younger sister's mouth
No Garden Police - misheard lyric from Refuse/Resist by Sepultura
Catholic Radio Bear - misheard lyric from Rock The Casbah by The Clash
Ogre At The Temple - another misheard lyric from Rock The Casbah
Potato Wave - misheard lyric from Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam
Fiddle Butterfly - what my phone tried autocorrecting Gisele Bundchen to
Going To War With My Family - another autocorrect. I was texting my friend that I was going to eat with my family, and ended up with that instead.
A Dell 21 CD - another one inspired by my sister. We were looking for Adele's 21 album for our grandma and she asked, "Why does Granny need a CD for her computer?"


Good band names from A to Z (actually just from C to S)

C Plus Pus - pun on C++

Pi Pro
Pi Bro - I was moving my glossary of Matt1993isms from my LJ profile to a sticky post so I could put different sections under separate LJ-cuts to make navigation easier. One of the LJ-cuts is for entries between "Pi" and "Pro" alphabetically, and at first I misspelled the LJ-cut text as "Pi-Bro".
