My Bands Go To Eleven

What Stasha? You’d like to know my top ten list of Real or Imagined Band Names? OF course! I would love to play this week! You say my Twisted MixTape posts are the highlight of your week? Oh yes…oh, you’re too much! Thank you!

Ok, I admit it, I think Stasha at Northwest Mommy, through the powerful and most wonderful blogger Rachee from Say it Rachee, created this Listicle just for me.

Frankly people, one of my favorite movies of ALL TIME is ‘This is Spinal Tap’, a documentary about an “imagined” band. So naturally this list would appeal to me. WHAT? You don’t know this movie you say? No matter, I shall remedy that at the end of this post.

But first my list, in no specific order, Top 10 Imagined Band Names:

Inspired by little dog’s inability to Shut-up!

If you knew my niece you would know this really meant Audi Thornton’s (the car and the gas station)

My son’s epic mis-behavior at Stir Crazy

My son’s indecisiveness and anger at me for trying to help at Stir Crazy

The boy can’t remember my Mother-in-Law’s best friend’s name

I let the boy drink Soy Sauce to keep him quiet at Stir Crazy (it won’t happen again, I assure you)

Thank you Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory) for this one

And this one

And this one

I don’t even remember. Something to do with the boy. I can’t remember EVERYTHING you know!

Ah, and last, but not least, an Ode to my boy.


You’re Welcome, all the newly forming rock bands that flock to my blog. I have already created the artwork for your first album, it will cost just a small fee. To be discussed at a later time.

If you made it this far, I insist you watch this clip. And when you’re done, will you click the little clicky banner and let the world know you like me? Feel free to share me all over too. I’m not choosy.

Thank you Stasha for the Monday Listicles, go check out the other great lists!

  • You are so funny and creative!! Nagging soy sauce is rather catching. Glad we have eleven 😉ReplyCancel

    • Jen

      Thanks Stasha! I love your lists! Thanks for letting me play 🙂ReplyCancel

  • I always thought that “Pathogen” would be a terrific name for a band. Their first album could be called “Contagious”, the next one “Epidemic”, and so on!

    How fun are these listicles? I have to figure out a schedule so I can participate in these here and there! 😀ReplyCancel

    • Jen

      Sarah I know you don’t want to hear this, but there already is a band called Pathogen. They’re a metal band from Australia, they even have some videos on YouTube. I’ll have to see the names of their albums though! I do the listicles when I can, this week was a gimme!ReplyCancel

  • OH MAN…this is a terrifically awesome list, so creative! My favorite is Sheldon Coopers Counsel of Ladies… Have a great Monday babe!ReplyCancel

    • Jen

      Thanks Karen! Sheldon offers us such great fodder!ReplyCancel

  • Ok, huge Big Bang Theory Fan here, so loved the Sheldon Cooper references. And would you believe I never saw the Spinal Tap Movie. Not sure why, but just never did. Great list Jen and you did Listicles proud with this one!!ReplyCancel

    • Jen

      Janine! You must see Spinal Tap, trust me…it’s worth it! Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • I am up for any post that starts with that title. Did not disappoint!ReplyCancel

    • Jen

      I’m glad you got my reference Rachel 🙂 I didn’t think many people would!ReplyCancel

  • These were awesome! Loved the graphics. Will be thinking about the soy sauce all day and smiling to myself. EllenReplyCancel

    • Jen

      Thanks Ellen. That’s what happens when your son threatens a whole meal to drink soy sauce, he get’s to drink soy sauce!ReplyCancel


    • Jen

      Thanks Deb! Natural consequences, they best kind of discipline!ReplyCancel

  • These are really good names. I didn’t even attempt this. I really like Smashing Fortunes. That’s an awesome band name! Shirley Donkey and Barking Daisies totally sound like band names. At first glance I thought they were real.ReplyCancel

    • Jen

      I actually looked them all up to make sure they weren’t! Isn’t that funny 🙂 I thought for sure Barking Daisies!ReplyCancel

  • I havw to admit I’ve never seen This is Spinal Tap either. Its one of those i’ll catch it someday.
    Cowboy Boo. That’s got to be my favorite.ReplyCancel

    • Jen

      Rachee ~ Maybe a date night? It’s pretty hysterical!ReplyCancel

  • Awesome! I love your artwork associated with each band name–makes your post so much more interesting to read.ReplyCancel

  • Awesome! I love those names 😀

    Found you the HumpDay blog hop and following you <3ReplyCancel

  • Very creative and I think there might be a future for Shirley Donkey. At least I like it. 🙂 (Don’t know if Shirley does.)ReplyCancel

    • Jen

      Jamie ~ Thankfully Shirley does not know! I think I might have something too!ReplyCancel

  • I like Cowboy boo and your covers.
    Especially the disco lady….she’s groovy!ReplyCancel

    • Jen

      Thanks Rachee! It was a lot of fun making them! Thanks for the list!ReplyCancel

  • You are so good at this! Gunpowder Grocery Store is my favorite, but I don’t want to know why that is an ode to your boy, do I?ReplyCancel

    • Jennifer Kehl

      Dana, Thank you! Actually, one day the boy walked up to me, out of the blue, and said, “Mom, can you please put gunpowder on the grocery list.”ReplyCancel

  • Haha, my favorite is Smashing Fortunes. Like Smashing Dreams, but way funnier! Love it! Love YOU. TTTx10.ReplyCancel

  • Those were real? No way! LOL! I miss Monday Listicles! I have to start doing that link up again. Famous last words!ReplyCancel

  • Gunpowder Grocery Store is far and away my favorite, but of course it would be. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • You’re brilliant. That’s it. Just that. And so is the boy.ReplyCancel

  • So much fun! (And I Love This is Spinal Tap! And all of the other films that group does . . .)
    Brilliant band names! I especially love Barking Daisies. I, too, have a dog . . .ReplyCancel

    • Jennifer Kehl

      Thanks Diane! It was fun to make!ReplyCancel
