The Dave Barry Initiative

So... One of my roommates is getting a new game for his Nintendo Wii. I think it's Guitar Hero World Tour, but it might be Rock Band 2. Or something. I don't know.

My contribution is to think of a name for the band. Hooray! I always loved playing that game. But it's harder now that I am responsible for coming up with one that everyone in the apartment will love. (Plus Mark's fiancee Andrea wants to play and she said the name can't be sexist.)

So here are the best ones I could pull out of thin air:

* Fat Alec Baldwin
* The Sex Bulimics
* Crapspackle
* Bride of Kong
* The Walden Pond Scum
* Invisible Motorcycles
* Occam's Toothbrush
* The Reverse Vampires
* Mount Vesuvius and the Latin Explosions
* Bolivian Beach Bunnies
* The Mighty Moon Worm
* Ultimo Diaz
* Toby and the Flendersons
* The Infamous Nose of General Charles de Gaulle
* Plucking Chickens

Now, I realize that some of you will say that most of these are not great. And that's true. So if you have any suggestions, or want to voice an opinion about my crappy list of ideas, then please feel free to rock the comment box. Which, come to think of it, would be a pretty terrible band name.

Rockin the comment box sounds good to me.

I like Mount Vesuvius and the Latin Explosions and Rock the Comment Box actually. Of course one of my friends recently introduced me to an anagram generator and I used my full name and came up with some pretty crazy stuff. He said it'd be a great way to develop a band name so you could even try that.

I have to say I prefer Mount Vesuvius and the Latin Explosions. Although Walden Pond Scum was excellent too.

Sylvia said...

Personally, I think Occam's Toothbrush is freaking brilliant. Much better than Occam's Liquid Soap or Occam's Fingernail Clippers or Occam's Assorted Toiletries. Given a second choice, I like Mount Vesuvius and the Latin Explosions.

as a small comment, most sound better without "the" in front

e.g. "Waldon pond scum" sounds better than "the waldon pond scum"

How about something like "I am Axel" or some tribue to a "great" hair band like Def Pony.

Just a few of my thoughts. They won't mean anything to anyone else except you and me, but worth a shot.

So many good ideas here! And yet, none of them can top the greatest band name of all time.

I'm goin' with Crapspackle and I'm not lookin' back. Some girls from work and I formed an imaginary band: The Ladyfingers. Ha! Get it?

With the Futurama ones you already have, you should definitely include Baldercrap.
