An entry in Fortnightly Topic Challenge #35: Restricted Title 1.


My friends and I started a band! The problem is, we've had a lot of trouble coming up with the name.

We each suggested a few names, but each one was shot down by someone else for referencing another band. We all think what we've chosen fits, even if it's a reference, because we're going for that genre of music.

What bands were we referencing, and what genre are we looking to emulate?

Tumbling Boulders
Gold Blimp
Blind Cheetah
The Owl's Call
Knives & Violets
Adventure
Shallow Orange
The Ladybugs
Lungs (Along a similar vein, the drummer suggested "Courage". I suppose we have two fans of this one in our band!)

  • $\begingroup$ What you've got so far is correct. I was going for a bit more specific of a genre, but what you've listed is the more broad genre so... Still correct, technically. :) $\endgroup$ – Kendra May 30 '18 at 16:13

    $\begingroup$ @Kendra Sorry, I'm not actually that familiar with music! I only know most of these from cultural osmosis (mainly Guitar Hero). $\endgroup$ – Deusovi May 30 '18 at 16:14

I am guessing you are trying to copy rock bands or 70's-80's.

Tumbling Boulders

The Rolling Stones

  • $\begingroup$ I updated the puzzle to narrow down "Lungs". I didn't expect that one to be so... Applicable to all! $\endgroup$ – Kendra May 30 '18 at 16:23
