    Honestly I really like that music but the name "Organasm" makes me uncomfortable.

    TRPOFODEPIII sounds kind of cool but I'll support Full Frontal Alchemist(...of Deathmetal?).

    Challenge him to a rap battle for the right to continue using the name.

    "Yeah, uh, we came up with the same name as you years after you established yourself as a prominent rapper. We want you to stop using the name. Because we are metal. Totally going places."

    I'd just go with Alchemy. There are two of them on Encyclopedia Metallum but they're inactive. Still probably common in other genres however.

    This is why bands nowadays name themselves "Carebear Barber Squad Pumpkin Latte Little Sister" and such.

    So used to be The Originals. And we had to change our name actually... Well, there was another group in the east end called The Originals and we had to rename ourselves, The New Originals, and then, uh, they became... The Regulars, they changed their name back to The Regulars and we thought well, we could go back to The Originals but what's the point?

    Like other people have already said, The Alchemist is a pretty well known rapper. It's probably a good idea to change the name. I like that Full Frontal Alchemist idea.

    Full Frontal Assault sounds cool. Seriously, I'm not in an original metal band anymore so I won't get pissy if any of my ideas get taken. Untie Me was one I made up I really like.. Or there's Oriental Rental :lol:

    Emocore? Easy...Slits The Wrists

    A/S/L would be a great name *light bulb*

    Hey lets cash in on this second wave numetal would you want to join A/S/L just make sure your pants are low.

    If that names taken I got more for the second wave Numetal rap core group that pay homage to those glory days of the late ninties to early 2k

    Anti Skip (the space age Walkmans that didn't skip now they're five bucks)

    Phortz (pants or shorts our shorts covered our legs where they still shorts?)

    Pacivic rim (we loved putting crazy rims on old civics back then)

    Can we make some sso.org parody collab bands with some of these names? That'd actually be great

    So your new band name is The Original Originals.

    Cool! I'll play whichever instrument no one else wants to play: bass, turntables, or smacking a 55 gallon drum with a baseball bat.


    Or the Real Proto-Originals of Fire of Deathmetal El Paso III...

    I would just spell the name differently, for example Alkemist (without the THE too).
    Or you could just grab any term from the alchemy article on wikipedia, it's got a whole bunch of viable band names in it :lol:

    How do the rules work with umlauts? For example, is Älchemist distinct from Alchemist?

    My band ran into the same problem a while back, we just amended our name. Nothing is going to keep Better Pearl Jam from the top!
