Band names are something we’ve all tried to come up with at one point or another. Sometimes, there is little connection between the music and band name, for example Arctic Monkeys.

In this Patchable we explore the music of bands that do not exist.
For this patchable, your task is to visit a band name generator website. In 5 minutes or less select a band name that inspires you. It can be funny, abstract, clever, weird, stupid or whatever you want. Just make your selection is less than 5 minutes.
