Top Ten Tuesday – Book Titles That Would Make Great Band Names
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!
This week’s TTT topic is Titles That Would Make Good Band Names. I thought this was a fun topic and what surprised me as I was looking at the titles on my shelves was just how well so many titles would work as names for bands. My only struggle was just picking 10! Fantasy titles seem to work especially well, in my head anyway, lol. I’m imagining the titles I’ve chosen as either head-banging 80’s hair bands or something a little more modern, like alternative bands.
My son looked at me strangely when I added Turtles All the Way Down to my list, but I say if Bowling For Soup, the Barenaked Ladies, and Toad the Wet Sprocket can be band names, why not Turtles All the Way Down?

Turtles All the Way Down, Spinning Silver and My Lady Jane would be such good band names. Great list!

Turtles All the Way Down is an awesome choice. What genre do you think it would be part of?

I could see it as an alternative band that has ended up going mainstream but then ends up being a one hit wonder.
Six of Crows is an awesome pick. And I totally want to hear what Undercover Bromance plays. 🙂

Lol, right? Me too!
I love that we both picked My Lady Jane! I was kind of thinking along the lines of Good Charlotte. Aurora Rising is a great one!
Good Charlotte was on my mind when I chose that one too. 🙂
Haha! I think Turtles All the Down is such a fun band name! I love Thunderhead too.

Undercover Bromance!! I would totally go to see that band😁

Right? I would too!
I like the sound of Aurora Rising as a band name! Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
Me too. 🙂
Oh yeah, Thunderhead for sure! I can see Turtles All the Way Down as a pop-punk band.

I felt the same way (and I loved all the bands you name dropped, while explaining why Turtles All the Down is a good band name). I actually short listed My Lady Jane and Aurora Rising (which made me think of Artemis Rising – a read band). Great list!
I loved all of those bands too, lol.
Undercover Bromance! That’d be a good one if I do say so myself, lol. 😉
Aurora Rising would also be super cool… In fact, I like most of this list for band names including the turtles. 🙂
Turtles All the Way Down is on my list too! I love all of these titles. They would make awesome band names!

My Lady Jane would definitely make for a great band name!
Spinning Silver would be a great band name, especially for a Celtic band. I’ve come across some of the others on a couple of other TTT posts, so you’re not alone in thinking they’d make good band names! Renegades, Aurora Rising, and Thunderhead would all make very good band names. Great list!

Ooh, I agree about the Celtic band. I hadn’t even thought of that.
I absolutely adore these Suzanne!!!!!!!
Sophie recently posted…Don’t you think these book titles would make great band names??? Top Ten Tuesday
I would totally rock out to Thunderhead!
Right? Me too!
Ha Beavis and Butthead- too funny! I still go around saying d@mn it Beavis at times and I have no idea why that has stuck with me after all these years!
Six of crows and Renegades would be amazing band names. I like My Lady Jane too. 🙂
Toad the Wet Sproket always killed me.

LOL! Glad I’m not the only one who knew who Beavis and Butthead even are. I was afraid I was totally dating myself with that one.
I’d totally listen to Turtles All The Way Down and A Darker Shade of Magic. 🙂

Right? Me too!
Ooh yes! This is such an awesome list, Suzanne 😍 I can definitely see all of these being band names and I’d definitely listen to Aurora Rising and Undercover Bromance (that one is defo my fave though)! So good. This was such a fun topic to post about 🙂
Dini @ dinipandareads recently posted…#TopTenTuesday: Titles That Would Make Good Band Names
Great names, I love Aurora Rising for a band. Fun topic this week wasn’t it 🙂
Trish @ Between My Lines recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday : Titles That Would Make Good Band Names
It was fun, and I just love how every title I read on every blog really did sound like a great band name.
Oh, I’m with you, Turtles All the Way Down sounds like a perfect band name! It’s much better than Bowling for Soup, IMO. I don’t even know what music that band plays. And, oh I would like to hear what music A Darker Shade of music would be!

I’m envisioning either alternative or R&B for A Darker Shade of Magic.
I could absolutely see all of these as band names! Turtles all the way down especially – that sort of quirky name that makes you want to check them out. Six of crows too! I can totally see it.

What a lovely TTT! I’m humming the surprise hit tune from Turtles All the Way Down as I type…
Haha! This really was a fun topic.
