I am a base and sound like a toad-frog in a well. Even though I never sang in the band, I sang the base part of the song which is the only words I actually knew -- “rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river”. When I was finished the singer had come out of the stage-fright. I think that me actually doing something other that sitting on my stool playing my instrument was more shocking than the audience.

    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.

    It's a shame since I was going to suggest "The no-names" or something similar Anyway, being hardcore protest music (or so I think), what about something like "Furious mushroom", "Enraged mushroom", etc.? (English is not my mother tongue so I'm not sure which sounds better for a native speaker, but something along the previous suggestions).

    Funny what you can dig up on YouTube:

    I've played guitar for most of my life and bass, off and on for about the last 15 years. I'm mostly into Thrash Metal (Megadeth, Metallica,) Prog Metal(Dream Theater) and Classic Rock but anything that Rocks gets my attention.
    I've almost gotten a couple bands started over the years and it seems that the hardest thing to do is come up with a good, original sounding name. Seems like all the cool ones are taken. I think this is one of those times when you're going to just have to get the band together and drink a few to get into a creative mood then just write down anything and everything that comes to mind. A couple days later look at the list and see if anything stands out.
    Heck, sometimes names even happen by accident. Led Zepplin got their name when some guy told them that their band would go over like, well a Lead Zeplin, they changed up the spelling a bit an BINGO, they got a killer name. Megadeth got their name from a comment that a guy made after the Atomic Bomb came into being and coined the term for when more then a million people would be killed in a Atomic Blast. Once again, they changed up the spelling a bit and there you have it, another killer name. I'm sure you'll eventually come up with something. Keep the faith brother and keep on Rockin'

    Cattle Decapitation , The County Medical Examiners, and General Surgery are all taken, so you cant use those.

    Best suggestion so far, I was actually looking through my playlists last night for a decent song name. This is probably how I am going to choose a name.

    That's one of the other reasons we wanted to change name. We didn't actually know there was another band by the name of Sepulcher. That and the fact that people thought we were trying to imitate Sepultura. Which is crap, because we actually got the idea of the name 'Sepulcher' from Skyrim..

    Hard core metal, no "The" ,ok how about "Dystopia". If not liked ( or used already ) maybe go through a thesaurus looking for words which resonate with your work and see if anything synonomous and unused sounds good. I like one word names for bands, more dramatic somehow.

    Inconveniently Real. Or swap out "real" for another word. Inconveniently Raw, perhaps? I definitely like "inconveniently <something>"

    How about the Z("zed" as in the Canadian pronunciation)Heads. So it's be ZHeads but be pronounced ZedHeads. I know, kind of stupid but like I said, it' HARD coming up with a name.
    OOOO, just thought about another one "Ded B4 Don"(dead before dawn). Kind of catchy.
