Scrotal Recall and Other Brilliant Band Name Ideas

In Hearts Wake

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: the internet is a wild, wild place. This weekend we fell down a reddit rabbit hole and somehow ended up in r/BandNames, a thread where people endlessly suggest potential (and mostly pun-based) band names until they’re equal parts proud and ashamed of themselves.

Truth be told, we actually found some pretty cracking names. We could easily see “Julius Seizure” on a lineup with Cerebral Ballzy; likewise with Ted Danson With Wolves and “Peeping Tom Cruise Control”.

If you’re looking to christen your next great musical act, suss out the list below. We sunk our time into scouring the best suggestions so you don’t have to. Promise we’ll shout out any legends who actually call their band “Requiem For A Meme”.
