TTT: Titles That Would Make Good Band Names

Top Ten Tuesday: Titles That Would Make Good Band Names

A rather frivolous and funny  topic. Just about any title could be used by bands for the names of their groups. I live near a freeway sign which was used as the name of fairly famous rock band, Sleater-Kinney. So I know that anything can used as a band title.

1. Daisy Jones and the Six (Reid)---Ha ha. This is cheating since it is the title of rock band in a book.

2. True Grit (Portis)---Doesn't this have a nice ring for a country group?

3. Ready, Player One (Cline)--- A play on the word player. Fun idea.

4. Manhattan Beach (Egan)---Maybe a funky name for a jazz group out of New York.

5. Pachinko (Lee)---Take a Korean/Japanese game and name a K-Pop group after it.

6. Brazen (Bagieu)---How about this for a title of a kick-ass female rock group?

7. Artemis (Weir)---How about this title for a techno group?

8. Force of Nature (Harper)---Sounds like the title of some strong group, maybe a hair rock band.

9. The Great Alone (Hannah)---Would be a great title for a band out of Alaska since it comes from a poem by Robert Service about that state.



  1. Great choices! I always wonder how bands choose their names, sometime they seem so random.

  2. Ready Player One! I love that one. :) Artemis is awesome too.

  3. Ah Ready Player One is so clever!

  4. Pachinko as K-pop is a good choice! I love the creativity this week.

  5. I love the idea of a female band called 'Brazen'! And I definitely be down for a group called ready player one!

  6. I have always told my daughter she should have an emo band called Death Nell. I will be looking at book titles in a new light. Personally, I would call my rock band Potemkin Village.

  7. Good band names are poetry. How about Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance?

    I veered off the path this week, and made a list of great books to read for the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day tomorrow.

  8. I like the idea of Ready Player One!

  9. I'd listen to Artemis for sure!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  10. Force of Nature is my favorite...right have Daisy Jones and the Six. :D

  11. I like your choices, and the band descriptions you give for them. Ready Player One works really well, and Force of Nature totally sounds like a big '70s rock band. Great list!

    Here's my TTT.

  12. ooo! Ready Player 1! That would be a sweet band name. Love your choices here.

  13. Listing Daisy Jones is only kind o cheating ;)

  14. Honestly, for the longest time I thought Ready Player One WAS a band, the way people talk about it online.

  15. Love Brazen and The Great Alone. And I chuckle whenever I pass the Sleater-Kinney exit.


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
