Band game!
« on: 23 May 2009, 11:43 »

This is a pretty fun game that popped up on another forum I frequent. Basically, I'm going to list off the opposite name of a band that exists out there and everyone tries to figure it out. And then people come up with their own lists for others to figure out.

For example:

Slow Eye Stillness = R.E.M. (Rapid Eye Movement)



And the list

Nightmare Cinema
Skepticism Forever
King
The Discouragements
An Improper Square
Fairweather Pacifists of Life
Arrogant Cat
Cruel Uncertainty


Well, there's 8. Have at it!

Well, Queen.

For the rest, too much thinking.

Nightmare Cinema hits me as cheating, since the guys in Dream Theater actually used to use that moniker for encores occasionally; apparently they would switch instruments for shits and giggles.

Close. The Discouragements was The Temptations, but I can see how the Yeah Yeah Yeahs would fit.

Alright. Someone post more!

Hourwomen = Minutemen

I really hope nobody makes a joke about Hourwomen, and how the name denotes females with sexual longevity, by perhaps pointing out the differences between the sexual performances of men to women, and maybe forming a quip like "I really hope the Hourwomen aren't attracted to Minutemen, lest they become dissatisfied with their love lives!  Ho ho!".  I really hope nobody does that.
