Great White Expectations

Here's a fun game to play. Take a band's name and do a mash up with a book's name. Coudal Partners calls it "Booking Bands". Here are some of my favorites:

  • Great White Expectations (Anything with 80s hair bands works for me)
  • Horton Hears a Hoobastank (This just sounds nasty)
  • A Tale of Two Bay City Rollers ("Turn off the soccer game and put on the Bay City Rollers" - So I married an Axe Murderer)
  • Mein Camper Van Beethoven (Good punk band name)
  • Corey Hart of Darkness (This works on so many levels..."I wear my sunglasses at night so I can...")
  • Slaughterhouse Jackson Five (Disturbing)

Here are some of my own.

  • The Lord of the Sex Pistols
  • The Handmaid's Black Sabbath
  • A Farewell to .38 Special
  • The World According to Molly Hatch
  • The Satanic Fat Boys
  • A Room with a Foreigner
  • Gloria Estefan and the Art of Miami Sound Maintenance
  • Naked Hair Cut 100
  • The Cult of Innocence
  • The Call of Los Lobos

Some good ones from Matt...

  • Into Thin Air Supply (Genius)
  • The Velveteen Revolver (Soft, plush and deadly)
  • Oliver Twisted Sister (We're not gonna take it! Anymore!)
  • Booker T-Factor Diet (Unexpected use of popular diet book. Good work.)
