    I shared once lived in a shared house with a guy named Pat Ryan. He formed a band and wanted to call it "Paradigm Shift". Too college boy, I told him, when he asked for my opinion. In the end he tried using "Pat Ryan Band", but it got written up as "Fat Ryon", and that name stuck :lol:

    That is too funny, "Fat Ryan." Literally LMAO, but not at Pat Ryan.

    First album is called "In the Buffers" and has a picture of the band with no clothes on but some electric buffers in front of their naughty bits.

    And in a weird coincidence Pat Ryan is the name of my childhood friend who named me Hoodie McFoodie. :eek::eek::eek:

    I see where you are going but these are requiring potential fans to make cognitive leaps to pop culture. You need to be more direct.

    Years ago when I ran a produce business we put up the clever price card for "H2O Melons" on top of the bin of big green stripe melons and the number of people that didn't get the connection of H2O was surprising ... so we went back to the normal "Watermelons" sign.

    There was a story about Dave Grohl that they came up with "Foo Fighters" as more or less a place holder name because they were used to having to swap out players and reform a dozen times with a dozen different names ... and the band worked so they were "stuck" with that name.

    Shorter titles work better because the text font can be larger on signs and web pages, plus people can remember it easier.

    Nickleback, Cold Play, KISS, The Beatles, The Who ... all fairly short. But avoid acronyms like IBM because you have to spend years of brand marketing to get there, originally IBM was much too long selling with the name International Business Machines. Most one word bands have been already used, so it's like choosing an email address (might need numbers).


    How about:

    Sum Wrath

    Game Of Khan

    Khan Game , or Con Game

    Angry Grapes , if the band goes for humor

    Fury Storm , synonyms for angry angry which might lead to

    Angry Angry Hippo
