    Name your fantasy Rock Band name.

    Poof! - You now have loads of musical talent and a promising music career. What is the name of your band and what genre do they express?

    '80's techno pop fused with industrial

    Hot G.R.I.T.S.

    Think the Dixie Chicks meets Salt-n-Pepa.

    Stupid Lisa Garbageface (an obscure Simpsons refrence)

    It would be a punk-indie band and we would rock!

    When I was in High School, we had a couple of short lived punk bands. "The Vomiting Barracudas," "Becuz" and "Disturbed" (which is now taken by some lame new metal band.) Ok they weren't actually bands, but a group of friends in a basement attempting to cover punk songs with no musical talent whatsoever.

    How about the Trailer Park Twisters?

    Just kidding...

    I would really name it "flibbertigibbet", which is what my mom used to call me when I would talk too much as a kid. I've been in a band before, it was along the same musical lines as radiohead.

    Breast Meat

    If I had any talent, I would be in a punk band called Breast Meat. Our first album corver would be a spoof on a Banquet brand box of frozen chicken patties. Ate those things for lunch all the time while in college.

    The Seabishops - seriously, thats where the name comes from.

    Its a long, nerdy story, but for a Lit. class in college I had to do research into pirate and sailors' myths for a paper - one of the things I found was the Seabishop which was this sea creature that looked like a human but with scales, a pointy head like a bishops hat, and a cape. My (future) Brother in Law and I thought it would be funny if a bunch of these guys formed an 80's metal band. We even wrote a theme song - "We're the Seabishops, we're coming to rock , yeah we're the Seabishops, yeah we'll never stop!"

    Since then we have this imaginary rock band going with other honorary members. I really am a frustrated musician with no time for anything musical with 2 little ones.

    This is what they look like.

    I like EcoFem's Suburban Legend ... I think I'lll steal the name! Cul-De-Sac Jesus has potential.

    However, for lack of a better name, I'll pick Patchouli.

    Jam band, of course, but not as Phish-ish or Dead-ish ... maybe more of a Dave Matthews edge, with a female vocalist as a twist. Tons of damn takin'-a-year-off-of-college trust fund babies follow us around the country. Half of the time we're on stage, we're tuning up, but folks in the audience think that's part of the act. Over 250 concertgoers were arrested at the Burlington, Vermont concert for posession.

    What kind of music would the Poohsassins play? Sick and demented twists on children's music (some of which is already sick and demented).

    Nothing planning related, but a couple of friends and I thought a cool band name would be either Hopped up on Goofballs or Wacky on the Junk. We ended up using both as names for Intramural teams.

    Expanding on the planner theme, how about HI Zone (Heavy Industrial Zone).

    The music of course would have to be blue grass.

    Or how about a goth version of Sharon Lois and Bram?

    I was just talking to my brother last night, and something about bitter and spiteful came up, and i thought that'd be a great band name.

    Bitter and Spite - Hole (from 1996, not 2000) meets the Go Gos - I'd be lead singer.

    Some good militant New Urbanist band names could be:

    Robert Moses’ Body

    Jimmy Can't Walk to School

    the Bloody Pedestrians

    I can't think of any good ones today. Best I could come up with was "Modal Split".

    I have no idea what they'd play.
