Regular readers of this site and Stereogum’s The Number Ones series might know that I keep a spreadsheet.
- It contains data about the songs…
- Author Tom Briehan’s ratings…
And the results of my weekly poll.
The spreadsheet keeps track of other stuff, too…
Like any time someone comes up with a good potential band name.
I’ve been keeping a similar list on my phone for years.
Some people here in Nashville know about it and will hit me up when they’re putting a new act together.
I’ll then take that name off my list, because it’s theirs now.
Pick an instrument, and you’re in the band. (Dibs on bass!)
And those instrument requests? They’re barreling in as we speak…
So: below are the best 64 names from both the spreadsheet and my phone.
Keep in mind this is just for fun and not nearly as life-and-death-important as picking the best song of the 2010s.
Which is “American Idiot.” Clearly.
Ahem. Anyway, vote below and come back next week for the… wait, let me count this out, finals, semi-finals, quarter-finals… come back next week for the thirty-second finals!
If you’re reading this: voting is open NOW!
