My friend has started a band. I don't know what genre to classify them as, but they're going for a Taking Back Sunday / Blink-182 sound and making it heavier. So he told me the name of his band and asked me if I thought it was good. I couldn't give him an answer because I couldn't figure out for myself if I liked it or not . . .

So I thought it'd be great to hear your opinion.

The band name is In Vegas.

If you have a name that you think is better, you could certainly make that suggestion.

I voted yes simply because the name doesn't make the band. I mean I'm a huge fan of the Number Twelve Looks Like You but that is truly a ridiculous band name. In other words, if they like it and the name is not too absurd, then sure.

Sounds fitting for the type of music they aim to play...

Maybe not, but some names for bands are just retarded (Pink Cream 69, I'm talking about you guys).

OP: It's a fine name. As long as it isn't taken, of course.

I voted yes but with the suggestion they add a word in front of it. like waking up, or sleeping, or finding bodies(might be a little too heavy for the type of music), or drinking or drowning( because there is technically no water in a desert so it would be like a metaphor to how it actually feels like when you go to vegas you feel like youre "drowning in vegas".

I would say no way, unless your in a "Homo Emo" band then any gay name you throw out there will be suitable.

It's not a horrible name, but it sounds more like a radio rock/Nickelback tribute band name.

I like it. Good ways to tell if you like the name is to say things like "The new album from 'In Vegas'...", in which case it works.

I agree! I really like the band name "Drowning in Vegas".

Pink Cream 69 is a fantastic name, I don't know what you're talking about, however the music they place is fucking terrible.

As far as retarded names go, nothing beats The Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravanganza.

You should choose a name that closely resembles that of a better, more well known band. Or shorten it to Vegas. Because In Vegas is stupid as hell.

Might I suggest "Metalica?" Or, "Metalloidica?" Get it? Semi metal? Like, heavier than Blink-182, but not actually metal. Semi metal! Ha!

I'd say it's good enough for a band. It flows well enough. Kinda cliche though.

I think Vegas would make a better name but its not the worst I've heard of. Isn't a name that will automatically lose you fans.

'In Vegas' would be a good name for a Pop-Punk band, which is what it sounds like your buddy is aiming for.

Honestly, I don't even want to listen to them. Their name is enough to put me off.

Straight away it reminded me of Katy Perry because of that 'Waking up in Vegas' song, I dont think it is very good. I think it would be better for a girls band.

I could of told you that...if he made the name, he's obviously going to prefer it.

What happens if they end up playing Vegas and somebody asks them where they are playing as he's a tad lost?

"We're In Vegas and we're playing in Vegas." :p
