Band Name Mashups
I got a request recently for a song by Whitesnake, or maybe it was Blackfoot. The caller asked for Whitefoot, to which I said “don’t you mean Blacksnake?” They said “oh yeah, that’s it.” Which got me to thinking which, according to my wife is always dangerous, about band name confusion. I took the thought a step further, and thought about some potential band mergers, and here’s what my warped mind came up with. I apologize in advance for these.
Blackfoot + Whitesnake = Blacksnake or Whitefoot
Bad Company + Guns N’ Roses = Bad Roses or Guns N’ Company
Quiet Riot + Led Zeppelin = Quiet Zeppelin
Van Halen + The Damned = Van Damned
The Used + The Cars = The Used Cars
Yes + No Doubt = Yes Doubt
Hot Tuna + Iron Maiden = Hot Maiden
Cheap Trick + The Cardigans = Cheap Cardigans
Canned Heat + Butthole Surfers= Canned Buttholes
Blue Oyster Cult + Blind Melon = Blue Oyster Melon Cult
Black Sabbath + Black Label Society + Black Oak Arkansas + Black Eyed Peas + Black Crowes = Black Oak Pea Labeled Arkansas Sabbath Crowe Society
Black Flag + Blackfoot = Flagfoot
The Doors + Foghat = Doorhat
I could go on, but why?
Can you think of any?
Oh, by the way, you are allowed to cross genres.
