More on band names

A compendium of every known metal band name.

As a quick follow-up to yesterday's post on profane band names: McSweeney's has just released a book that simply lists more than 50,000 heavy metal band names. The Q's are listed here.

Still stuck for a name? There are tons of band-name generators on the Web, including this one for metal band names, with a checkbox to include non-evil words. Finally, John Roderick of The Long Winters blogged last weekabout selling out, and how Seattle rock bands used to purposely choose ridiculous names to appear more authentic.
