The big ol’ list of band names

These are good (and not so good) band names that have popped into my head over the last few years, mostly stemming from misspellings in IM conversations with Ynnej.

You are free to use any of these, in exchange for thanks on your first CD’s liner notes, and a comment here.

Now all I need to do is start a band. And pick a name. Vote for your favorites!
