Band Name Generator

Actual News Nugs*


My new band, Emperor Go-Mizunoo. We're kind of Maroon 5-meets-Josh Groban.

Here's a useful meme to generate not only your band name, but your first album cover! It's kind of like Making Your Porn Name 2.0. Commence with the time suckage!

Via "Best Week Ever":

1 - Go to Wikipedia, hit “Random Article.”

The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to The Quotations Page, hit “Random Quotes.”

The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to Flickr and click on “Explore the last 7 days.”

Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop/MS Paint or similar to put it all together.

5 - Host it and post it the comments, mother hubbards!

My band is Emperor Go-Mizunoo and our first album is "When Secretary Generals Are White." We've kind of got an early '90s, Better Than Ezra/Toad the Wet Sprocket/Gin Blossoms alterna-pop vibe. Only with more auto-tune.

Malta at the 1928 Summer Olympics with our album "Suddenly it's about 'doing'" We're a art-rock band with a sardonic sense of humor. (judging from our name)

Nabataean, "The Way of All Flesh" (album art: )

Still working on our sound--but it will be indescribable, like nothing else you've ever heard, and/or mellow funk.

The Little Street "Better Eat and Be Pleasant"

You tell me what this sounds like....

alm77 12 years, 11 months ago

smerd, that's an awesome picture. Did you really get that randomly??

gavon 12 years, 11 months ago

alm77, I could ask you the same question regarding your near-perfect album cover. It looks like something released by a Dave Matthews cover band. Lovely.

And smerdy's is indeed pretty awesome.

smerdyakov 12 years, 11 months ago

Yes'm, followed the rules and everything. There were actually even better photos on the flickr explore page I was given—notably the sunset silhouette of a rather ripped, shirtless man cradling a baby.

I did like your shot, too... "Over the Rainbow and Dreaming" perhaps.

Announcing Jerome D'Souza's new album, "Revenge Has A Killer Body" (Must have MySpace to view, I guess.)

On his solo album debut, D'Souza combines the sitar sounds of his native India with elements of American glam rock to create an elegantly layered Kenny G meets David Hasselhoff on Acid vibe that can only be described as uniquely Jerome D'Souza.

Here's my album cover on a public site (It may not be pretty, but I've invested a lot of time on this and I'll be damned if nobody can see it):

Dup, I think "There When It Goes Off" works. Kind of leaves that wonderment of what does it mean?

Frank, your cover is BEAU-tiful.

Smerd, my "really" was a "WoW! Really??" not an accusatory "oh, really?" just so you know.... I'm astounded that you got a picture of a guy and a freaking guitar.

Which leads me to ask, why have none of us come up with a cover of some gawdawful party pic or the obligatory shirtless dude taking his picture in the bathroom mirror with his cell phone??

Alm, for that to happen, we'd have to get random pics from MyFace, Spacebook if you will.

I came out with some Lillith Fair fare.

alm77 12 years, 11 months ago

Yeah, after I asked that, I realized it says: Explore / Interestingness / Last 7 Days

I would suppose "interestingness" would indicate above average photos.
