Rockskirts vs. Rollskirts

Comments (13)

I speak for all of America and most of the internet when I say that making up band names is wicked fun. There is something intoxicating about the idea of an inside joke or a funny quip being publicized and idolized and immortalized as the name of a successful group of musicians, even though I don't think that dream has ever in the history of history actually become a reality.

That said, I would like to share with you the very short list of suggestions that my brother and I are putting forth, free of charge, for you and your rockin' friends to enjoy, use, mock, or otherwise employ. The first was a brainchild of our family reunion, and the rest were shamelessly stolen from a Jerry Seinfeld DVD. (Hey, you with the smirk. Put away the haterade.) Here goes:

  • Funky Melon
  • The Involuntary Luge
  • Livin' Suede
  • Mighty Careful Steppin' (and the Mountain Strings)

Your turn! Hit me up with some band names, people. Also, if you play a musical instrument, let me know. Why bother waiting around for someone else to use our great names when we could just start our own band? I play piano and air guitar.

P.S. I guess Rock Band and Guitar Hero give us the opportunity to use these names now, so I take back the part about sharing them freely. Give me $10.

P.P.S. I have a boyfriend now! More on that story coming up next.

Have you heard of that band named "LMFAO?" I heard on the radio that they wanted to call themselves the "Sexy Dudes," and they told their grandma over IM. She responded with "LMFAO" and it stuck. LOVE that story!

What about The Rubberbands. Flame Throwers. Daffodils.

Those are a couple options.

How did we both go from perpetually single to having guys within a few months of each other?

Clearly it's a conspiracy, an awesome one, but a conspiracy nonetheless.

Any time you want to rub some of that singleness-banishment on me, go right ahead.

A former friend and I talked about having a band called The Housecoats, and how at our shows we would wear 50s-looking housecoats. And my sister-in-law has always wanted to have a band called The Shredded Cheddars. :)

If you want a laugh, (or at least a little smile), do a websearch on how the Pogues got their name...

You just casually drop a boyfriend bomb on us out of the blue?

(Boyfriend Bomb would be a good name for a band.)

You know, it's a good thing I know you two in person now, because this "Oh, P.S. I have a boyfriend, no big deal" thing would have driven me crazy.

hehe. I love how irritated people are about the so-called "boyfriend bomb". Although - I'd prolly be joining them if I knew you better, and didn't know the story yet... :) (oh, and I promise I don't blog-stalk you, either, but I must say, your writing draws me in fairly quickly... a little like someone else I know...) ;)

A musical gent I know has always wanted to name his band "You're Soaking In It," but he can never quite convince anyone.

And, it would appear that Ms. Skirts no longer wants to talk about her supposed boyfriend. I wonder who he could be... and whether he comments on her blog... and if he gets frustrated that she never blogs anymore even though it's probably because he's unintentionally stealing her from teh internets a little bit. What a selfish guy.

Share the love, Rachelskirts. Share the love. We miss you.
