Battle of the UnBands

If you're going to steal, steal from the best. My former instructor, the illustrious (pun intended) Scott Franson, posts on his blog from time to time the cover to an UnBook: a book that has never been, and may never be, written. This is a great idea. So... I'm going to steal it.

I was bored last night and started writing down band names on Post-It notes to kill time. I thought to myself, "Self, you should rip off the UnBook idea. Only you could do UnBands. UnBands. Uni-Bands? Who has Uni-Bands? Is it Captain Marvel? No, those are Nega-Bands. They make him and Rick Jones trade places. No, somebody else has Uni-Bands. Captain Universe? Yeah, that's who it was. Anyway, what was I thinking? Oh yeah, UnBands. Concert posters, t-shirts and CD covers for bands that don't, and maybe shouldn't, exist. And you could have people vote for which one you do. Also, this job sucks."

So, here's the first three band names. Which would you like to see make it to the big time?

* Ghost Rock
* the Pink Barbarians
* Hamburger Helper

Voting ends next Monday! Get your votes in now! Vote early! Vote often! It's the American way! George Washington would do it if he weren't busy fighting off hordes of the undead to make America safe from zombies! Exclamation Mark!

This is a really tough one becuase I like Hamburger Helper a lot, for a band name that is. BUT I think I'll have to go with the Pink Barbarians this time.

I think you should go with Hamburger Helper. It was the one that stood out in my brain first. You are a nerd face, but a nerd face with many exceptional cognitive processes. Good. For you.
I hope life is well. Do you know where you're going to relocate yourselves to yet? Oh, and is your website fully functionable? True Church!
