Cool Band Names (we invented) -> Latest Entries

Satin Death Beds
The thought of rich people dying, just as we do, brings comfort to me. Satin is a very nice material, so it just seems appropriate. The point of the name is that we all die, even those who think they'll reign forever.

The Ramones is also called: Neuveaux Bubblegum Band with Guts
Joey Ramone referred to the band as this. He was referring to the fact that while pundits labeled the Ramones as a punk band, the Ramones were inspired by 60s "bubblegum" and added a modern, tougher, ballsier element to the mix.

Pretty Boy Floyd
"Pretty Boy Floyd" was a nickname for infamous bank robber Charles Arthur Floyd (1904 – 1934). From 1925 through the early 1930s he was known to commit numerous bank robberies and be suspected in other robberies and murders in the U.S. midwest. He was sentenced to life in prison in Ohio but escaped from prison and was subsequently shot to death by police. Despite all his criminal exploitations, he gained a "Robin Hood"-like reputation in the eyes of many. Woody Guthrie wrote a ballad about him, reflecting that romanticized status, and the ballad has been performed by various singers.

Matthew, Dexter, and Frank
born to: Elvis Costello
I know that none of these three names are weird or unusual at all, in any way. In fact, they are all extremely normal, common names that I'm sure you all hear practically every day. But Elvis Costello is my favorite musical artist of all time, which is why I love posting about him here at AmIRight. He has twin sons, Dexter and Frank, who are currently eight years old, born in 2006, with his current wife who is none other than the great jazz singer and pianist Diana Krall. He also has a much older son named Matthew from his first marriage to Mary Burgoyne. After his marriage to Mary ended in the mid-1980s and before he married Diana in 2003, Elvis was married to Cait O'Riordan, who had been the bassist for The Pogues, and they were married from 1986 until they split in 2002, but Elvis and Cait did not have any children together.
