How to create your own band and album

A few weeks ago, I stumbled across a page that gave instructions on how to create your band and album, using random search features on different websites. Of course, it's all make-believe, but it's fun to do. Here are the instructions:
  1. Go to Wikipedia and click on "Random." The page you end up on is the name of your band.
  2. Go to Wikipedia's Quotations page, click on "Random." The last four or five words in the quote is the name of your album.
  3. Go to Flickr, click on "Explore Last Seven Days." The third picture is the album artwork.
  4. Use an image editing software, such as Photoshop, to create the final product.
I decided to do this and here is what I got:

Bailey's Comets - Add a Thousand Others


Pretty cool, I think. I decided to determine a track listing using the same process that determined the band name and Excel's RANDBETWEEN function to determine the number of tracks:
  1. Spectrum Bias
  2. WBCN
  3. Glenn Dubin
  4. Dayton, Ohio
  5. Delaware Fightin' Blues Hens Football
  6. Sean Dockery
  7. Yitzhak Golan
  8. Brock Bowling Club
  9. The Chinese Bungalow
  10. Native American Mascot Controversy
  11. Estadio Hanz Usko
I have a feeling tracks 5 and 10 are pretty epic. Expect to hear from us soon!
