There was no new Game of Thrones episode this week, (I hope you didn't think Behind the Candelabra was some sort of Renly/Loras alternate universe flash forward).
We still have to wait a whole six days for Episode Nine, "The Rains of Castamere," the episode where THINGS HAPPEN. The episode with the RW. The episode that I'm predicting will end with BLANK BLANKING BLANK with a BLANK before blackout.
So, since all I want to do is talk about what's to come in "The Rains of Castamere," plus discuss everything I'm reading in A Dance With Dragons and I CAN'T because internet protocol and all, I thought we do something fun today and try to come up with the best Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire-based potential band names (beyond Hodor! and Hot Pie, because obviously).
Here's my list.
- Ned Stark's Bastard: The whole "so-and-so's bastard" theme could produce a slew of band names, but why not go with the original?
- Ramsay Snow: Like, I could've said The Bastard of Bolton, but Ramsay Snow just has a better ring to it. I see an alterna-ladies band with this name, a la Eisley.
- Where Whores Go: "Where do whores go?" is a question that pops up frequently in A Dance With Dragons. This band's name offers the definitive answer -- Here. Here is where whores go.
- REEK: This is what Theon's captor calls him in A Dance With Dragons, and it would make a great death metal band name.
- Cat of the Canals: Basically a Josie and the Pussycats cover band. Meow!
- Xaro Xhoan Daxos: The mark of a truly great band is a nearly unpronounceable name, the kind of name whose true pronunciation is known by only the most diehard fans.
- Dolorous Edd: This band would play sad bastard guitar music for sure.
- The Sand Snakes: Ramsay Snow may be a cute, sweet lady band, but The Sand Snakes are hardcore.
- Illin' Pain: Hip hop, of course.
Which Game of Thrones bands would you listen to?
