What Geeky Name Would YOU Give Your Punk Band?

The Grey Havens Group hosts several Facebook groups and other social media accounts. One of these, Nerd Life Is the Good Life, is the place where we contemplate and celebrate all things nerdy and geeky. Sometimes, the celebration part takes an unexpected form. This week, we imagined that we had just started our own punk band and, of course, we had to give it a name taken from a classic geeky reference. Here are the names we came up with, listed according to inspiration.

In space, no one can hear you scream.
