Suggested Band Names

Now that I have mastered 3 chords on my guitar (it’s only taken me 3 months to do it), why not start a band? My youth pastor, Sara, who reportedly plays a mean Claves, has already committed to the band, and I am hoping to convince my wife to join in on the Tambourine. Maybe someday I even be able to talk my daughter into rocking out on the electric Flute.

Until then, I am focusing my energies on the all important work of coming up with a great Band Name, because, after all, the name defines the band.  Here are a couple of options: 

  • “Three Chords and the Truth” – if we go with this name we’d certainly have to be a “christian/folk” band, but the name pretty much says it all.
  • “Moral Turpitude” – this would necessitate a punk rock sound and long hair and spandex – but what a great name.
  • “Darwin’s Flaw” – I don’t know what it means, but it’s catchy, and might pique interest. Could be an Electronic/Dance sound, heavy on the re-mix, or alternative (think Erasure).
  • “En-hakkore” – this is the well God gave to Samson to renew his strength.  Maybe a grunge/alternative sound.
  • “Sign of Jonah” – this is kind of a “Jars of Clay” title, so definitely an alternative/christian contemporary crossover sound.

If you have any band name suggestions, please share them in the comments below.  Be sure to suggest also the style of music that goes with the name. Thanks for the help.

    So I’m thinking a take of Rev Run and you could be Reveds’s Run then you could throw in some rap to the mixture of your music. Benefits of this group you would be able to do some great collaborations with famous artist!

    Personally, I’ve always liked “Scum of the Earth.” It was the name of a band on ‘WKRP,’ but it is also one of the descriptions of the pastoral ministry that Paul uses in I Corinthans 4:13. Alas, the name has already been taken, or I would have added it to the list.
