    Default My bandīs name. What do you think when you here it?

    "Trendcase"

    It took a while and it was hard, but almost a year ago we found the name that we wanted, because it doesnt mean ANYTHING else then us, which was the maingoal.

    Now i just wonder whatīs the first thing you think of when you read it, because it doenst mean anything. *Curious*

    (Weīre a hardrock band)

    And then you can also tell me how you feel about it and if you like it.

    I read it earlier, and just didn't know how to respond. But I will now:

    I guess I'm more of a traditionalist when it comes to band names - I like a name that means something (so long as it's not disgusting, i.e. "Saliva" or potentially offensive, i.e. "Godsmack") - even if it's an in-joke to the band that we only learn about years later. Then there's always the tried and true formula of naming the band after one or more of the members ("Van Halen", "J. Geils Band") or not ("Jethro Tull", "Lynyrd Skynyrd", "Herman's Hermits").

    First thing I think of is 'Trendkill', like the Pantera title.

    The first word is an immediate turn-off. "Trend" is never good when it comes to music.


    IMO of course.

    Well, lemme say that for me at least, names never mattered...it's your heart and sound that counts. The name will grow on people later, and only then will they analyze, understand and appeciate it.

    A cool band name is good, but dont rely on it to sell your band. Just my .02.

    Interesting choice for a band name.

    I'll go with what was posted previously. It's the music, not the name.

    Good luck.

    Are you sure? Rock N' Roll has been around for about 50 years, that's a pretty long trend!

    When I think of Trendcase, I think of temporarily insane. So it is a pretty cool name.

    Yep, but it's been worn out and dated for almost 20 years now

    How bout the name - Cockpit - (thinking about calling my band this)

    It seems to get a reaction out of people when I tell them, mainly cause people are pervs

    To be honest I don't like trendcase, how bout - Blackcase - blackbox -
    ( black's kinda of a mysterious word... just throwing out ideas)
