Default Which Name is Better?

Okay, so a few people have asked me to join their band and we need to come up a new name. A name can mean a lot .... I never went to see these guys play before because I didn't like the mental image I got when I heard their name "Trailer Park Barbies"

The band is four people (2 guys/2 girls) - music is classic rock mainly w/a bit of current rock and country even: Elvis, Doors, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, George Thoroughgood, Scorpians, Nickleback, Heart, Pat Benatar, and even Trick Pony. We have two lead singers - one male; one female - which allows us to pick a larger variety of songs...what one can't sing, the other one can.

So.... If you were to see these band names on a billboard or sign, would you be offended, find it funny, or be intrigued to see the band playing? If you were a bar owner or event planner, would you have any issues putting these names on the signage? Do you have any suggestions for a name?

Well, considering the condition most bands play in, "Half Loaded" might be more appropriate...

i agree that you dont want too abrasive of a name... i like half cocked better, but it is slightly more abrasive, so im going with fully loaded

Exactly my thought. "half-cocked" is "somewhat loaded".

I went with fully loaded.

Yea... and of course it can be taken in a firearm context or in a state of drunkeness...
Both of which are socially acceptable in our area.

But to say "cocked' in public seems too abrasive even if there was a half-cocked gun as a logo.

Edit: of course... if we're going with the state of mind - "Somewhat Stable" would be appropriate.
