3) Wolf Frog Eyes Parade People (Collective) -- Couldn't really
see this being a band name, but it's awesome anyway, and it very well could
be title of a revolutionary piece of artwork by an indie-clique-mocking modern-day Marcel Duchamp. (Naturally, a modern-day Marcel Duchamp would be so hip and so deep inside the indie clique that he could make all other hipsters explode simply by making ironic fun of them.)
2) Jelly Phish -- It "would be a jam-band Dead Kennedy's cover band," writes one reader. "It must exist somewhere out there." Er, we're not so sure.
1) ... And the winner is: A reader who submitted a bevy of great animal band name ideas and explanations, such as Pangolin (a strange mammal -- "Sounds like an acoustic-guitarish, maybe eclectic blues/bluegrass/roots rock band to me"), Brocken ("A two-year old stag. A versatile name, could be a cheesy '80s hair band"), and Dabchick "(a small bird)," which to us sounds like the name of a Scandinavian pop band, or perhaps a tween metal trio. We'd go see 'em, though.
everyone for sending us your ideas. Now go start bands with these names
and send us your CDs! Seriously, we'll be giving away more tickets
