Bleh to all. I'm guessing that this name is intended for a group of four to six effeminate young men with geometrically-shaved facial hair and oh-so-precious choreography scripted to vacuous pop tunes about how much I wanna love you girl? Do they regularly kiss their first two fingers and then make a V sign while saying "peace out"? Do they use phrases like "word is bond" and "keeping it real" in an attempt to come off like street-tough inner city youths but instead come off like white upper-middle class "My Own Private Idaho" wanna-bes? If that's the band you're looking to name, here are a few suggestions...

The Double Xs
Wallpaper and the Disposables
Boys II Women
Rough Trade
The Father in the Movie "Happiness"'s Favorite Band

I'm sure I can come up with a few more...

Millennium's a good name for a pop band of serial killers.

I hope I didn't say anything to offend anyone in my earlier comment/rant (some of it could be taken two ways I think); I apologize if I did. I'm in a very bad mood today. This survey didn't help any.

Emaculate... would that be a combination of "immaculate" and "emasculate"?

Millennium would date too quickly. 2nd Verse sounds like an a capella group. Westend Boys sounds like a Pet Shop Boys tribute Band. Broken Hearts sounds like a 1950s doo wop group. 5 Elements is okay. Emaculate is pretty cool, though I don't understand why I like it. That's it, I'm voting for Emaculate.

Mr. Quigley's Giant Bucket Of Squid.
Oh, maybe that's a better name for a restaurant than a band.

natsim: Excellent analysis!

drdt: gee shucks! I am concerned that Emaculate sounds a little heavy for a pop band though...
posted 22-Feb-2000 9:44pm  
natsim: Depends on how you pronounce it. How about 'Emma-queue-laddie', accent on the 'queue'?

What about a non English name? Sounds much more sophisticated!
De Zeikerds for example!

drdt: or you could be sophisticated with Emma-queue-latte? With the accent on the latte... sounds like a Gwyneth Paltrow movie. Emma queues for a Latte.

Westend Boys - a group of cowboys with tight pants
2nd Verse - Christian pop group
Millennium - stop already .
5 Elements - what the chemistry kids do on the weekend
Emaculate - a Catholic pop group
Broken Hearts -- NOPE - already done as the Heart Breakers!
posted 23-Feb-2000 10:27pm  
Resy: heartbreakers are not the same as broken hearts. Broken hearts are the result of romantic interactions with heartbreakers (and anybody else without a master's degree in human relations).
posted 25-Feb-2000 4:41pm  
drdt - ok, heartbreakers cause broken hearts ... I wasn't thinking of the function so much as a rearrangement of the words ... wonder how many of those phrases we have in our language....
posted 26-Feb-2000 4:40pm  
..None of the above.

Weezie-- Just being honest.. but the name "Westend boys" makes me cringe...

(The Trill of) Chocolate Asphyxiation was one of the titles I was saving for my band... But seeing as that I have realised that a kazoo player will go nowhere in the world... I am setting it free...

Ripweezl, Underwater Gas Machine, Mutated Hindus, Smacking Perkins, Alien Velocity, and Sac Rockets are all good, I think...and "Granulated Elvis and the Sevens" is good too.

I wish somebody would name their band Sex in the Shower. I've never convinced anyone I was in a band with to do so, but it would be a great name.

How about "The Weasels"?
posted 24-May-2000 9:03pm  
How about "The Weezels"? Get it? Like "Pop goes the weasel" only spelled wrong like they used to do back in the 60's...oh forget it... * smile *
posted 1-Jun-2000 1:04pm  
2nd verse, same as the first...a little bit louder and a little bit worse...
Broken Hearts is too sappy and depressing. You know what all their songs will be about!

Westend Boys...isn't there already Westend Girls?'s getting old. The Backstreet Boys did it, Robbie Williams named a song that...ZZZZzzzzz. Boring!

Emaculate...or 5 elements I guess, but I don't really like those either.
