So if you're a musician and your bandmates are dissatisfied with 'Dan Smith: The Greatest Rock Star of All Time featuring Three of His Unemployed Buddies,' feel free to change your band name to one of these Gary Williams originals:

Ryder Cup Purgatory
Bowels of the Abyss
Precipice of Oblivion
Driver Off the Deck
Cold-Topped It
Find the Jones
Too Penal
Ticklish Little Three-Footer
Call for the Squeal
Throw Mitts
Tips for Turkey
