It's not just a clever name for a webcomic... okay, it is.

The Band Name game

Postby chris daily on Thu Feb 01, 2007 2:46 am

this was swiped from the CRFH forums, because they are amazing, and I hope we can get to that level of insanity here someday.

anyway, here's the totally stolen rules to this game:

You've probably heard of this game before, but if you haven't then read ahead. There are a few simple rules.

1) The person above you supplies a band, and you take the LAST letter of that band name and post a band name that BEGINS with that letter.

2) Artist names are okay so long as they've come out with a solo album. So both Rob Zombie and White Zombie are fine. With an artist, the stage name is used instead of their real name, if the names are different.

3) In the rare case of numbers such as 311, you can choose to use the number and name a band that begins with that number, or you can spell the number out and then take the last letter.

4) Try to avoid garage bands. There's too many of them and people can't verify that they exist. Not that I don't trust you people, but it's a standard rule. Tell you what, you can include garage bands if they have a website and you link to them.

That's it. Well, almost.

5) The first post that has a valid band name is the one the following posts go off of. There's apt to be plenty of simultaneous posts on this one.

6) To avoid having this thread quickly spin out of control, if you really want to talk about how awesome/awful an artist/song/album/genre is, then create a "Music Discussion Thread" (if it's not already there) and then feel free to link to it from this game thread.

Edit: 7) Try not to repeat band names. Don't use a band name if you know for certain it's been used, but otherwise don't worry about it much.

Edit: 8 ) There are entirely too many bands that end in S. If it's an s that just pluralizes the band, like "The Red Mushroom and the Badgers" then feel free to ignore the S and take the letter that comes before it.

Starewell (Calgary, AB local band whose just starting to get radio play. Great sound, somewhat mainstream, but the musicians actually know how to play their instruments. And they DO play their instruments. And seem to enjoy it. Shameless promotion? You bet.)
