Friday List: Rename Supernova

By Liz Kelly

Okay, I swear this will be the last you hear from me about "Rock Star" until next season. Unless something really crazy happens on tour and, of course, when they rename the band. As we all know by now, the band made the baffling decision to take both Lukas and Dilana on tour (Dilana will front the House Band. I'm sure they're overjoyed)

But, I'm not here to wring my hands about the bad decisions of others because, really, why should I stress about something out of my control? I won't go on about how Lukas looks like his outfits -- right down to the studded half-glove thingy -- were issued by a stylist who has punk'd him big time (and I mean this kind of punk'd). I won't waste precious space talking about his staggering, doubled over way of careening around the stage or his over-emoted wailing. All I will say is that when my grandmother, who was a native of the Ukraine, didn't like how my mom or I styled our hair, she would tell us we looked like a "smacked dupa." Lukas, you look like a smacked dupa.

But, like I said, we're not getting into that because I'm not fixated or anything. Instead, we will build bridges. Because two wrongs don't make a right (and three dudes with dyed hair don't make a rock band), we will reach out to these musicians who have hurt us so. And so today, let us turn our massive collective creativity loose on renaming what was known all summer as "Supernova." A judge has decreed that the band can not tour or record using the name, so they must re-brand. Let's build them a list to be proud of, a list with names gutsy and rockin' enough to overcome the dupa-factor of Lukas and the cheese factor of being a reality TV spinoff.

I'll start:

No Hit Wonder
The Tommy Lee Experience (they want to sell tickets to these concerts, right?)
Three Dudes and Some Guy
Voivod Is Better, But I Want to Buy a House

O.K., kidding. Seriously. How about, umm... I got nothing. You?
