So although I do check in and have look around every now and they I don't tend to post too often, but you might remember the last time I was here my band was called "Blind Dogs"- (like the SG song). Which is cool ass name, but unfortunately belongs to an equally as cool stoner band named Blind Dog. So we've renamed ourselves Cobralord. That's been our name for maybe 6 months now, and we've played a show at our high school and a battle of the bands under the name Cobralord.

But man... I'm starting to have second thoughts.

I've always been picky about our band name, notoriously so. And when I came up with it I was heavily into psychedelic bands like Monster Magnet, Vista Chino and Brant Bjork, so it just made complete sense to me (I essentially took two taken names I liked 'Cobra King' + 'Overlord' and added them together). But every time I hear someone call us Cobralord I cringe a little inside. I don't know. I guess it just feels a little contrived.

At the same time though, look at 'Faith No More' or arguably 'Alice in Chains', band names that wouldn't work without their image to sort of back up why it kicks ass.

Normally I'm not afraid of changing things whenever they need changing, but I get the feeling people are so sick of changing our name, particularly my drummer who I share the band with. And at what point do I stop changing it and just deal with it you know? When does that stop? Maybe I'm just too much of a picky bastard to ever like my band name haha.

Anyway what do you dudes think, anyone had a similar situation? Anyone think I should change the name?

Talk to your bandmates and tell them this. They may be able to help or you'll have to stick with it. Overtime you'll get used to it probably.

Cobralord sounds a lot better then Bone Eastwood..... It just makes me think you really really really like your Eastwood guitar. Still probably better then this....
