Band names and the story

I’ll start and keep it short cause I’m sitting in a tractor…
Heidi is playing guitar and singing, I’m pretending to play bass, and our son is smashing the set. We are going through our usual routine of trying to get him to keep a beat and suddenly it just clicks for him. He is rocking! We jump around genres a bit and settle on some 90s rock. It is really sounding good and then he just stops, stands up, and says (note he is only 10), “I’m just too restricted in these pants”. He proceeds to strip down to his underwear and yells out, “DRUMMIN UNDIES”!!
Our family band name is drummin undies… :roll_eyes:
Love it,
Everybody have a great day!!!

A wise man already! :rofl:
Love the band name. It’s awesome!

I don’t remember the discussion about the name of my punk band in school times but the result was: “Die ziemlich gute Bänd” = “The rather good Bänd”.
Think it was something among the lines of:
“Mhh, we aren’t really good.”
“but we’re rather good”
“so we’re the rather good band?”
“oh no please no…”
“YES! Yes we are the rather good bänd! With Ä”
“do we have to?”
“Yes!”
“It’s a stupid name”
“You got a better one?”
“… so the rather good bänd… with Ä?”

Of course that’s just the gist of it and maybe warped by my memory. I think we thought of more “punk” sounding names first but didn’t like anything we came up with. The one story I can remember more clearly was when we have written a song and tried to came up with lyrics and one of us said:
“Yeah, but what’s in this part? We can’t just sing la-la-la”
Guess what part of that sentence made it into the lyrics?

When I read the title of the Post and I was thinking of famous bands, and their names

Like
Pearl Jam from one of the guys aunt Pearls hallucinogenic Jam
Or
Primus after the camping stereo stoves branded Primus and things like that…
Etc…

But I like where you went with it. Great name.

My future band will be “The Pathalogical Smart Asses”

UB 40 was named after the unemployment form that the band members had filled out so many times.

A few of my fellow Vietnam era veteran friends from the American Legion post I belong to have been trying to get together for a jam as soon as this silliness is over.
If we end up starting a band, I have decided our name will be “The Fossils”.
