Name That Band: Part Two


Thanks to everyone who has participated in the quest to rename Faye and Hilary's piano/guitar powerhouse, supergroup combo. I've narrowed the original list down to the leading favorites and added a few new options to the mix, just to keep things a little interesting and the poll perhaps never-ending.

1. Cupcake Thunderbrake
2. Francine and the Trousers
3. And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Our Bread
4. Teenage Girl President
5. New Delhi Monkey Gang
6. Strawberry Shoreleave
7. I Am Rubber You Are Glue
8. Don't Stop Bereaving
9. What if We're a Dream and the Giant Wakes Up?
10. The Strudels

Stll voting for a corrected 3, and I'd also like to cast a vote for 8.

Strawberry Shoreleave is good too.

jfruh said...

TGP! TGP! TGP!

"Don't Stop Bereaving" would make an excellent name for a horribly offensive "yellowface" Journey cover band that sang in an exaggerated, stereotypical Chinese accent.

I still like New Dheli Monkey Gang, but now I'm leaning towards Francine and T he Trousers, if only for its simplicity.

Adam said...

Of these, either Francine and the Trousers or TGP.

Really, though, I would go with "Blisterpack." Too late, I guess.

propix said...

I throw out a passionate vote for Teenage Girl President!

I think the rest of them would make for excellent song titles, though. Especially Strawberry Shoreleave and Don't Stop Beraving.

stick with the mockery of Ted's unemployment:

Six Months to Broke

I don't get it, but I like Cupcake Thunderbrake

Stewart said...

I think the obvious answer is staring us all right in the face.

Ladies and gentlemen! Put your hands together! For...POODLE IN THE MOUTH!

Or, failing that, yeah, Teenage Girl President.

Irene said...

another vote for TGP!

Mac said...

TGP in '08.

Mr. Name said...

The Hastle Offs!

Handsy!

Santorum!

Criminal Négligée!

One Pound Bag!

Breadwinner!

But since it's evidently to suggest new names, I'm gonna have to vote for TGP. Or Strawberry Shoreleave.

Mr. Name said...

Er, that should have said "evidently too late to suggest..."

Call me a fool.

Stuart P. Bentley said...

You're a fool.

Jen said...

I'm all about Cupcake Thunderbrake.

John said...

I'm voting for Strawberry Shoreleave here.

Joseph M. said...

How about Cupcake Timberlake? Other band names are available here:

Dr. Shoggoth said...

Strawberry Shoreleave, definately. Teenage Girl President is good, but it's been done.

Reeb said...

TGP! TGP! I'm in withdrawal!

Ben said...

I like "And You Will You Know Us By The Trail Of Our Bread", but somehow I doubt that's a serious option.

Also, #9 sounds more like an album name than a band name.

lesles said...

has to be TGP.

though i originally read no. 8 as "don't stop beavering", and i might have voted for that

Stranger said...

My suggestion: Four-Fifths Famous...
Or #10, #7, #6 (in that order). Although I do worry that some of them could be misconstrued inappropriately...

Cheryl said...

I like "What if We're a Dream" but it's a little too long. How's about "Strawberry Shoreleave" instead?

Sue said...

Another vote for Teenage Girl President.

Emdashes said...

TGP. Gotta be.

Or: Global Squirming.

Matthew said...

It must be Strawberry Shoreleave!!!

D.B. Echo said...

I like New Delhi Monkey Gang because when they break up and eventually reform with half the original members, they can be the New New Delhi Monkey Gang.

Interpol had interesting storyline potential involving copyright infringement lawsuits and cease-and-desist orders from both the existing band and the International Police organization.

What if We're a Dream and the Giant Wakes Up? sounds like it should be a reference to something, but I can't find it anywhere online. It would make a good album title, too.

Maggie said...

I'm torn between 2 and 4, really. Also, "Don't Stop Bereaving" is hilarious, but not what I'd pick for Hilary and Faye's scary duo.

Also, my boyfriend's contribution: "I would go see ANY of those bands."

Twice Five Miles said...

I still like the monkey gang. Although "Don't Stop Bereaving" made me snort. Loudly.

brian_huntley said...

If you don't use it, maybe Lynn can use "Don't Stop Bereaving" if April renames "4eva" after the third breakup with whozit.

Christopher said...

Teen Giiiiiirl President!

thryn said...

Francine and the Trousers. I love it!

Mr Myth said...

Teenage Girl President, all the way.

Dji said...

Teenage Girl President. Definitely.

langdell said...

First, Teenage Girl President.

Second, the Cupcake one.

But your recent addition, The Strudle, would make most sense if your storyline involves the girls asking Ted to help come up with a band name.

Trapper John said...

AYWKUBTTOOB is just fantastic, but I have serious doubts that it could be the choice.

Don said...

TGP TGP TGP

TechWeasel said...

TGP's just to good to pass up.

Laura said...

in this order: WIWADATGWU, AYWKUBTTOOB, DSB.

Elephant said...

four or five, definitely!

Ellen said...

TGP!

PlaidPhantom said...

Teenage Girl President FTW.

Jodi said...

I would prefer that TGP came back in her own comic strip glory. I miss her. I like Cupcake Thunderbake and Strawberry Shoreleave. They are cute and kinda scary both.

kostia said...

Teenage Girl President! Yes!

kayrbear said...

TGP or the yes-its-long-but-somehow-catchy You Will Know Us By the Trail of Our Breadcrumbs

terri said...

I like Teenage Girl President

Sara Benincasa said...

As the inventress of Francine and the Trousers, I vote for that one. Also, jfruh is a frigging genius.

Coolgamer said...

Teenage Girl President for the win!

Julie! said...

Strawberry Shoreleave. Definitely.

Julie! said...

Right, so I just noticed that this post is like 2 years old. So, uh...sorry for making you think about it again? Heh.

How about Thin Lezzy?...too obvious?
