Band names from “The Wire”

It strikes me that The Wire is great fodder for band names. My four favorites:

  • New Day Co-op
  • Snot Boogie
  • The Dickensian Aspect
  • Mr. Entrapment

What are your favorites?

    Dammit, Aaron, you threw in those apostrophes just to upset me, didn’t you?

  8. Aaron Winslow on March 12th, 2008 at 3:56 pm

    Smooch.

    I knew it!! I’m surprised you didn’t drum up some squirrel bigotry to go with it.

    I’m watching you, Winslow.

    Frank a squirrel. Frank a squirrel right in the culo.

    Well! If I knew what that meant, I’m sure I’d be incensed!

    Winslow’s afterthought, The Lawyerly Affectations, is my favorite. Also a big fan of Pawn Shop Unit.

    Some of these might be better as song titles…
    Chain of Command
    Bubbles Depot
    Prop Joe
    Play or Get Played
    Bubbles and Bunk
    Shakima Griggs
    Tweedy Impertinence
    Cutty and the Mama Tappers
    WMD and the Pandemic
    Always Boris (for a Russian band)
    Snoop Loved That Nail Gun
    Brother Mouzone and the Bow Ties
