Doom Reference Band Name

Recommended Posts

Obviously I failed with Jehovah Gyra, and I'm looking to Doom references
for my new band's name.

So far I thought of:

Demon(s) Can't Step

(The) Former Human(s)

Pistol and Fifty

Hell by Rappel

But I'm sure there are plenty of awesome ones that I'm not thinking of.
Any suggestions?

Depending on the type of music:

BFG9000
Wallrunner
Degreelessness
Delta-Q-Delta
Hall Of Mirrors
Tag 666
Slime Trail

If Smashing Pumpkins hadn't already been taken: SPISPOPD

And if Dave Barry were here I'm sure he'd agree that Phobos Anomaly would make a great name for a band...

WTF does "Medusa Error" have to do with Doom?

A Medusa error happens in the original engine when you put a texture with more than one patch on a two sided line. When you look at it up close, the game comes to an almost complete stop until you look away again.

Wow, thanks for all the responses! I've gotta go teach some little kids English to cover my studio fees (a certain game company in Osaka pays shit), but I'll look at them in more detail later.

One thing I can say is that I did think of a lot of others myself, but:

I didn't want to something that would box me in later (like, "Icon of Sin" is awesome but might make people assume some kind of one-note dark metal)

And I didn't want something that was so Doom-specific and well-known that it was obvious, immediately nerdy and would lead to claims of unoriginality (like "Thy Flesh Consumed", for example).

Some slightly more obscure (mostly referencing the manual) Doom references:

Earth's Toughest
Floating above Hell itself
Challenging Electronics
DaButcher
The Perfect Enemy
Unwelcome Guests
Purgatory Pedestrians
Eric Dylan & The Massacre
Master Levels

But that would make an extremely long band name, and i didnt come up with that one, somebody suggested it at a metal gig (of 25 people, including band members, sound man and the bar staff) last night

not only is that extremely wrong but its Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold not Eric Dylan

I think that was the point...

Perfect Hatred would be awesome if it didn't sound all Nine Inch Nails-ish...

Right now I'm thinking "Pistol and Fifty" and "Medusa Error" look good, but they don't click quite hard enough...

Of course if I give up on the Doom references and there I have a ton of others, the best of which are:

Pig in the Ground
Basically Fake
Mindless Button Mashing
Japanese Bending Machines
Tunnel of Sky
Defloweration Project (alt, Refloweration Project)
Pauxeurs (pronounced 'posers')
PITA(People for the Ingestion of Tasty Animals)

But I still think I can do better. And then there's the whole issue of wanting it to be easy fo Japanese people to pronounce, heh!
