The Grey Album is less great in retrospect

Your Band is Not Cool

The Wall Street Journal has a great article on how difficult it is to get a good band name today because they are all taken. For example, Them Crooked Vultures were supposed to be called Caligula before Dave Grohl realized there are at least seven acts named after the decadent Roman emperor, including a defunct techno outfit from Australia. --MM

Ever since I saw it suggested on a blog a couple years ago, I've thought "Stereo Eclipse" is a great band name. Too bad I don't have musical talent or I'd start one using it.

That and "Eradicating the Hyphen" as suggested by a friend for a geeky indie band...
