This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Titles That Would Make Good Band Names. Basically, I looked through a list of books I’ve read recently and imagined someone on stage shouting the title into a mic in front of an arena full of screaming fans to decide if it would work as a band name. Here are ten.
Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater: Clearly this band would include the Lynch Brothers and their honorary family members. Lots of angsty songs and ripped skinny jeans.
The Disasters by M.K. England: Angst, so much angst. And songs about space and life and broken hearts and unrequited love. They’d be a hit.
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo: This band would be more indie and low key, but their songs would still have that vein of darkness fangirls love.
The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy: Your typical indie rock band. They have a lot of adoring fans, but never, ever tour in a city near you. Always coming out with free songs on Spotify or something.
An Acceptable Time by Madeleine L’engle: This band would be somewhat soulful, somewhat fun. They’d have songs about outer space and time travel and weirdness, but you’d like them after listening for a while.
Dread Nation by Justina Ireland: I’m thinking death metal kind of band. They all wear black and have shiny, shiny instruments.
A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir: Yeah, this is another death metal type, but maybe a tad more colorful.
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys: Lowkey rock band. They aren’t widely known, but the fans they do have are loyal followers.
Hello, Universe by Erin Entrada Kelly: Overrated pop band. They’ve the ones with the crazy, ravid fans, merch at Hot Topic, and all the songs and posters everywhere.
This Splintered Silence by Kayla Olson: Solid techno-rock band with fun music and even better lyrics.
