38 Band Name Suggestions Culled From Old DC Comics 

So I did a thing a while ago in which I listed several bands that found inspiration in the comics and comic strips when they went looking for a good name. And then I thought, “Hey, what if I could help an up-and-coming band find its own cool, derived-from-comics name to boost its geek cred among today’s pop-culture-savvy generation of post-modern hipsters?” So here we are.

  1. Mother box is awesome. But surely harbinger is already a band?

    • Great Guardians, you’re right! Quote the Wikipedia: “Harbinger is a band formed in 1997 in Berkeley, California featuring three prominent members from the East Bay punk scene.” And once again, my ignorance of the East Bay punk scene has led me astray.
