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?

    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!

    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.
