Top Ten Tuesday: Titles That Would Make Good Band Names

Top Ten Tuesday banner

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, wherein each week bloggers list out their Top Ten.

This week’s theme was an interesting one! “Titles that would make good band names” Like, I am not great at naming things, plus I am not that good at identifying music genres, but I still tried?!

Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle, #1)Nevernight

Genre: metal

Actually, there’s an Italian metal band by the name of Never Night already, so it was natural this title would top the list!

Sharp ObjectsSharp Objects

Genre: alternative rock

There’s an existing pop collective called The Sharp Things (so close!) but I feel the name makes more sense for alternative rock.

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)Six of Crows

Genre: hard rock

The name is pretty badass, sure, but The Dregs would also be a good name for a band!

The DegeneratesThe Degenerates

Genre: punk rock

I think the themes of being outcasts would be great for this genre?

Muse of Nightmares (Strange the Dreamer, #2) Muse of Nightmares

Genre: folk music

I imagine something along the lines of Florence + The Machine for this name

Cruel Beauty (Cruel Beauty Universe, #1)Cruel Beauty

Genre: K-pop

Girl band is what vibes I get from this title as a band name

Ghostly Echoes (Jackaby, #3)Ghostly Echoes

Genre: Alternative Rock

Something like Coldplay? BTW, a close enough match is an album name (Of Ghostly Echoes) from a metal band End my Sorrow.

Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices, #1)Lady Midnight

Genre: death metal

It would make for a cool band name, for sure!

Code Name Verity (Code Name Verity, #1)Code Name Verity

Genre: pop rock

Coming up with this one’s genre was difficult, but I felt like something pop rock would be suitable?

Ruthless Gods (Something Dark and Holy, #2)Ruthless Gods

Genre: death metal

Like, obviously!


Which book titles sound like band names to you?

  1. I have The Degenerates on my list as well! I didn’t even think about Ruthless Gods. Wicked Saints would make a good band name too!

    My TTT

  2. I had Wicked Saints on my list but was really tossing up with Ruthless Gods! I think both would make really good band names 😂 Love Muse of Nightmares and Sharp Objects as well! Great list 😀
