A member of my Elders Quorum started a band, and a few weeks ago he used our EQ email list to request the help in voting on a name for the band. We were given a handful of options, and voted according to our preferences. However, during the email conversation, the idea of Scriptural Band names was tossed around, with several excellent examples being suggested by one participant (e.g., “The Reformed Egyptians,” or “King Men Revisited”). Why is this important now? Well, this past weekend it became apparent that we had never heard back from him about the results of the poll or what the new band’s name would be. When I asked him on Sunday, he said that it was still undecided because the band members didn’t really like the results of the poll. Always seeking a way to serve my fellow man, I determined to put this issue to bed by enlisting the denizens of BCC who would surely come up with a band name that would be worthy throughout time and all eternity.
Now, before you offer up your suggestion for Best Scriptural Band Name, there are a couple of ground rules, set forth in the original conversation, which must be adhered to.
- Band Names must be based on scripture,
and scripture alone (the words of modern prophets are useless in this thread)or on the words of modern prophets
- Band Names cannot reference the “Stripling Warriors” or “Rameumptom” (too obvious)
- Band Names cannot reference the “Iron Rod” or “Sword of Laban” (too phallic)
Also, suggestions containing chapter/verse citations will be awarded bonus points. At the end of the thread, we’ll have a vote. Or maybe a free concert. Or maybe Steve Evans will let you guest post.
