    I've recently come across this procedure to randomly make band names, and album covers. Give it a try and we might even find one for Rush-O-Matic.

    1 - Go to Wikipedia and hit random article. The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
    2 - Go to quotationspage.com and hit Random Quote. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album. (you'll have to refresh, since the random ones are all the same, for some reason)
    3 - Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”. Third picture no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
    4 - Use picnik.com (or Photoshop, or whatever) to put it all together.

    Let's see what you got.

    OK, I will admit to thinking this was complete bullshit, but being a scientist I thought I'd run with it and see what happened. Fuck if it doesn't work. This is better than the algorithm to generate your porno name.

    Mine ended up with a hilarious mexican theme to it:



    May I suggest an Alt Focus of what style of music your "band" would play?

    If so, Ska.

    Dashboard confessional-like, unfortunately.




    Hopefully more Melissa Etheridge and less Avril Lavigne.

    Looks like I drew the short straw with this one:

    A band named after a Dutch gate? Why not? It looks very 90s indie rock...

    The picture made this take a weird turn.


    With a name like dark adventure, it's gotta be fantasy metal.

    I did this a while back, and ended up with this:

    Just because I'm bored, I did another one. I cheated and used the last eight words from the quote. I think it will be easy to understand why:
