Mine:

Mirror Image -- we were a Beatles cover band; I took the name from the D&D spell

the Other -- when I fell in love with the Who

AntiChrist -- an AC/DC/Judas Priest inspired bar-metal band that was big on props like guillotines and katanas

Eclipsed Tommorow -- or more fully A Shattered Vision of an Eclipsed Tommorow -- went from a King Crimson/Jethro Tull/ELP/Rush inspired prog-rock outfit to a speed metal band; the name was inspired by Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" and we would do "Brain Damage"/"Eclipse"; the name is meant to connote an ultimate despair

Back in the day when I was in a band (I'm a drummer) our band was Major Havoc.


As a recording engineer (was my job for about 10 years), the band would have to be Izzy Lump Lump they were a punk band (think green day), they had a cover of Billy Joel's "You may be right" that was really great

We mostly played punk/rock with the odd sabbath cover thrown in.

[size=6]OK, we never actually went through with the 3rd name.

A buddy of mine had a briefly-lived band named Self Titled, as in "This is the Self Titled title track of Self Titled's self titled debut album."

You can see, I'm sure, why they didn't last that long...

I am not a musician and nor is my wife, but a band name that I liked was:

My Friend the Chocolate Cake (local or Tassie band)

And from a Call of Cthulhu tournament many years ago Push. And the door will Open
