    OK so I stole this from failblog but it's funny and I wanted to play it here:

    1. Go to Wikipedia and click 'random article' (left side) - that's your band name.
    2. Go to Wikiquote and click 'random quote' (left side) - the last few words is your album name.
    3. Go to Flickr last 7 days - the 5th image is your album cover.
    4. Put it all together as you feel appropriate in Photoshop/GIMP/etc
    5. Others have to suggest a genre based on the name/style of cover.

    I'm half tempted to see if there aren't Tumblr sites for all of these "Fake" bands. God knows; Hipsters have some dodgy band names.

    I have bought albums, movies and books just because of names or covers before. It's amazing what you find sometimes. (classic example being 'Death To Smoochy' great movie and who wouldn't want to watch a movie called that :lol:)
