Top Ten Tuesdays are a prompt started by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This Tuesday’s prompt is “Book Titles That Would Make Good Band Names”. This was a really fun and a great challenge.
Genre: Indie Rock/Emo/Pop-punk
Sounds like: Tigers Jaw, La Dispute, The Front Bottoms
The Band: Five White dudes dressed in flannel, hoodies and ripped jeans. Probably ride fixed gear bikes. At least two have a hipster mustache. One is your regular barista. Played at your local college coffee shop.
Genre: Alternative Rock/Indie Rock/Post-punk revival
Sounds like: The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand, The White Stripes, The Killers
The Band: Four White dudes with long, unwashed hair, leather jackets and graphic tees. At least one of them lives off daddy’s trust fund. You saw them at a warehouse in Brooklyn once, where one of the members bored you with a discussion about craft beer.
Genre: Pop Rock/Indie Rock/Electronica
Sounds like: MUNA, The Aces, Shura, Broods
The Band: Three white girls and a Black girl. Goes without saying they are feminists. Two thirds of the band are LGBTQIA. At least one proudly displays armpit hair. Another has pastel purple hair and a nose ring. You met them at a Poetry Slam sesh. You’re a little bit in love with the lead singer.
Genre: Alternative Metal/Prog-Rock/Art Rock
Sounds Like: Tool, A Perfect Circle, Rage Against the Machine
The Band: Three white dudes and a black guy. Vintage bowling shirts over graphic tees, straight leg, distressed jeans and combat boots. Long hair, don’t care. Nail-polish. Subversive, anti-government lyrics. The band your boyfriend drags you to whose audience is approximately 95% dudes. He gets aggro in the mosh pit so you hang by the bar and get a little too drunk and flirt with the female bartender.
Genre: Alterative Rock/Indie Pop/Art Pop
Sounds Like: Billie Eilish, King Princess, Fiona Apple
The Band: One front-girl with a backing band. Long hair, sleepy bedroom eyes, vintage clothing that mixes masculine and feminine, unironically wears a flower-crown. Looks great in a tailored suit. Soulful voice that puts you in the feels. You go to see her at a small venue after you break up with your first love and spend most of the time in the bathroom, crying and being comforted by five random girls who are like..totally your best friends now.
Do you guys think these are good bands names and fit the band descriptions? Have you done this challenge? Link me to yours if so!
