Your Band Name
Your Band Name #1
by Global Texan
Coming up with a band name or an alias for those basement dwelling singer-songwriters looking for a nice disguise to hide your fears, The GTC team has decided to come up with some ideas each week in what we are calling, Your Band Name.
This week’s suggestion:
WIDE BODY TEENAGER
Origin: This term was overheard in a conversation between two fashion students or something or other. Both had English as a second language so who knows what they really meant but it is what it is. The exact sentence was, “The length was great for the wide bodied teenager.”
Thoughts: Sure, if you’re of a certain nature this new band name could have negative connotations, but this is The GTC and we don’t think that way and you shouldn’t either.
Back in the ’70s, I used to think a great name for a band would be “Many, Many More”.
In the age of K-Tel record ads on TV, every compilation album would feature the announcer rattling off all the artists represented: “The Carpenters! Mac Davis! Tony Orlando and Dawn! And Many, Many More!”
If there ever was an actual group with that name, K-Tel would either have to change all the ads, or include at least one of their songs on every album in order to avoid being charged with false advertising. And the guys in “Many, Many More” would get tons of free publicity.
Many Many, More…is Awesome!!! The GTC may borrow that in the next few weeks for Your Band Name!
