Top Ten Tuesday: Titles That Would Make Good Band Names

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, has been one of my favorite topics to date. I had so much fun with this one! It was pretty difficult to just pick ten, though, as there are countless books out there with awesome titles that would be just as awesome as band names.

For my TTT I opted to go with the more badass sounding ones rather than the relatively silly ones that came to mind. I couldn’t just let the ridiculous names go to waste, however, so at the bottom of my post you’ll find a special shout out to the more outrageous titles I thought of.

Happy TTT!


Something Wicked This Way Comes


Taken from Macbeth, this isn’t the only line from Shakespeare that would be a phenomenal book title/band name.



I have a feeling this one will be on a lot of lists this week.

Flowers for Algernon


Altered Carbon


The Sound and the Fury


Even the cover of the book would make fantastic album art.

A Clockwork Orange


Wishful Drinking


Wouldn’t this one be perfect for an Irish punk band?

A Wrinkle in Time


Ninefox Gambit


The Grapes of Wrath


Special Shout Out

I decided to focus on more profound sounding names for my TTT but I did think of several hilarious book titles that would be great band names too:

  • Everything Was Fine Until Whatever by Chelsea Martin
  • Knitting with Dog Hair by Kendall Croulius and Anne Montgomery
  • White Trash Zombie Apocalypse by Diana Rowland
  • Electric Jesus Corpse by Carlton Mellick III
  • Rats Saw God by Rob Thomas
  • Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O’Neill
  • Dead Bitch Army by Andrew Duza
  • The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse by Robert Rankin


Which book titles made it to your TTT this week? Any that I missed? Let me know in the comments!

    1. Yeah I have images of Slipknot/Kitty in my head with that one but I still love it. Trailer Park metal might be a genre we all didn’t know we needed!
