band names over the years.

I spent way more time coming up with clever band names than I ever spent learning an instrument. Which is maybe why I have this awesome list but can only play one instrument, and by "play" I mean strum and sound not unlike a remedial toddler with no thumbs. Anyway, band names:

Lesbian Driftwood*
Chicks Dig Pus
Topiary Manitoba
Guys in Black Vans**
First-Grade Pennies

*a collaborative effort with a college friend, who used to tell people that this was our all-girl folk band.
**In the alternate universe where I am a musician involved in multiple cross-genre projects, I wouldn't even be in this band. It would be comprised of the boyfriends of the women in Chicks Dig Pus. Kind of like how The Misfits was comprised of the nemeses of Jem and the Holograms. Update: Upon reviewing the "Jem and the Holograms" Wikipedia entry, I discovered that Jem was dating the frontman of The Stingers. So that would have been a better pop-culture reference to make, had my Jem-knowledge been up to the task. I won't fail you again, reader.
