In 2016, I wrote about band names if I ever were to start a rock band. I even came up with cool graphics.
Since then, I have kept a note in my phone of more kickass band names. Some of you keep Christmas lists and things you want to buy on Amazon in your phone notes section, I keep those too. But I also keep nonsensical lists too, like names for bands I will never start.
You have NO idea how therapeutic this was to create this post as well as creating album covers for bands that will never exist.
Looking to start a mid-life crisis band during a pandemic? I got you, boo.
Backstory-when Ellie was riding horses with her best friend at their old barn, her friend’s little brother was talking about a horse in the barn that happened to be very dirty. But the way he said it sounded like, “dirty whoresssss” which, by the way, would make an even more excellent band name.

Anyway, she mentioned how they look like they were wearing invisible handcuffs and we laughed and laughed and laughed.
I don’t remember how I thought of this but it is good, no? A soft metal band?
Feeling Bad for Lindsay Lohan
No clue where I came up with this one but it is a great alternative band name, no?
Facts That Aren’t True
This might have been one we came up with while playing Cards Against Humanity with friends?
I mentioned this would make an excellent band name in the post I wrote about my new green nightstands.
See? I do remember some stuff.
I was sharing a meme with a friend last month that had the word quaalude in it and she mentioned she didn’t know what exactly a quaalude was. I laughed at her not knowing and then came to realize that I didn’t even really know exactly what a quaalude was either.
It is a sedative and it was given frequently to people in the 70s and 80s to relax. It also has the nickname disco biscuit which I immediately squealed with joy when I heard because BAND NAME!!
