JOE MATHLETE'S BAND NAME MASHUP RODEO (a fun game that you can play alone or with other people)

I'm still finalizing the rules, but the basic idea behind Joe Mathlete's Band Name Mashup Rodeo is you take a band or artist and see if you can combine their name with the name of another band. The more band names you can string together, the more points or whatever you get. A website or book or competitive league devoted to this sort of diversion may already exist, but I'm pretty sure I invented it and should probably get some sort of certificate from the government or something, because it's fun and awesome.

Some classic examples:

John Cougar Mellencamper Van Beethoven
Super Furry Animal Collective
Revolting Cocteau Twins
Johnny Cash Money Millionaires
Fatboy Slim Thugs 'n' Harmony
Yo La TenGo! Team
L.L. Cool Jay-Z.Z. Top
In Living Color Me Badly Drawn Boy George Michael Jackson Browne
Dschninghis Khanye West
The Mathletes (the "The" is from The Beatles)

See? Fun and awesome. Try it!

EDIT: God dammit.

Props to Eric for "Electric Light Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark".

It can also be stretched a bit more to "Electric Light Orchestral Manoeuvres in The Darkness".

Skullturf Q. Beavispants said...

Also, I kinda wanna change one of my earlier suggestions to "Ludacris Kristofferson".

Skullturf Q. Beavispants said...

This game can easily become quite ludicrous.

Ludacris + the Crystal Method + Method Man + (either Manfred Mann or Man or Astro-Man?)


Ludacristal Method Manfred Mann or Astro-Man?

Maybe "Ludacristal Method" or "Ludacristal Method Man" is better.

While jogging this afternoon, I decided I wanted to change one of my suggestions to "Weensryche".

Then I typed "Weensryche" into Google to see if anyone else had thought of it, and to my dismay, somebody had. In fact, I found a whole page where somebody had clearly stolen Joe Mathlete's idea before Joe Mathlete even thought of it.

Here is the link. It's a very long list, but some of the suggestions there are pretty funny, and some of them happen to duplicate suggestions made here.

If you scroll down on this page you can see a similar list.

For a minute, I thought you meant anagrams. I have one of the two current best British bands MUSE and RADIOHEAD makes DREAM AID HOUSE.

Here's one that counts:

The Interpol Police

The Joy Division Killers

This is fun.

Crap. That is a damn comprehensive list.

This is just like that time in the mid-90s when I had an idea for a movie about the earth being threatened by an asteroid attack.
