Cease and desist
I think we should make up bands with myspaces and websites...not even websites, just a myspace and a few original songs at first... of course with a name that isn't in use already.
As ridiculous a name as possible along the lines of the current trends in band names ...like Wolf Wolf Wolf!!!, or whatever sounds like a reasonable or unreasonable band name.
We create these bands with looks, myspace pages and a few tracks....some pictures.
Then we wait until another band tries to use that name, we write them a cease and desist letter.
Partially I think it's funny because there are fewer and fewer band names out there...or you would think, and they might get angry, and partially because we predicted this stupid name.
I think the piece succeeds if we actually get a band to stop using the name we are using.
