Rotwang is the name of the crazy scientist in the German film Metropolis; I thought it had nice metal/sci-fi overtones. It also happened to be one of the few names not already taken when I signed up for the site.


Sounds like a goregrind band. I can even imagine the album cover of their self-titled debut.

It's possible that not a whole lot of people will read this, but the "Roffle" part of my username was an amusing bastardization of name, Rafael. My friends started saying it so much that it has stuck for years. The "Thrashard" in my nickname comes from a D.R.I. song in which the lines "then you start thrashing like never before stagediving, headwalking like mad," really spoke to me. The only regret I have regarding it is that it's a pain to type into my phone when viewing posts on the go. Oh well. I like it.

Mine is my mates old band name. To be honest I've never heard that band, but she was also in Walrora. If you haven't heard the latter, and you like metal - you're either dead inside or not from Australia.

Walrora is the plural of walrus. And you're probably not from Australia or have any interest in women who play black metal and are obsessed with Manowar.

My username is the the very first nickname I made up when playing video games, some 20 years ago. It's a misspelled Latvian word meaning a corpse (pronounced as mee-ruhons).

I literally got my name from Deathrash Assault, before I had even listened to the damn thing. That is because the BastardHead review in question brought the song title to my attention.

I was looking for a name in Tanki Online about six years ago, and every nickname I thought of was in use. So I came up with this.

Glad to see that there's other people from the MA that play (or have played) Tanki Online!

Mine came about from skating with my brother and our neighborhood friends probably around 12-13. We were doing skate tricks and while trying to say "dude, butters!" to my buddy as he landed his trick nicely, it came out as "dooders!". They decided to just keep calling me that and it caught on with other friends. Later expanded on it and came up with Dooderotica (most of my gamer tags), Dooderonomy (5th book of Dooders), and all sorts of other silly made up words from it.

A character from the novel "Watership Down" ( aka The most metal book that features talking bunnies :P) He's a mythical Robin Hood-like hero that rabbits look up too as the ideal rabbit. He's butt also sparkles.

Combination of the song Doom Metal Alchemy by the doom metal band Minotauri, and the anime Fullmetal Alchemist.

I'm really glad this thread was bumped. Now hopefully iamntbatman will post. I've always wanted to know why his name is "I amn't Batman" instead of "I'm not Batman" or "I am not Batman." :scratch:

Mine is a combination of Metrotitan a Decepiticon redeco of Metroplex, and Transformers: Victory. I'm a huge fan of the generation one and two toys and series.

It's a lyric from the Dream Theater song Strange Deja Vu. It basically refers to searching for yourself, and ultimately finding the way to unlock the knowledge of who you are.

crash and burn is a slang to mean an act of complete destruction
"I crash and burn" sounds something like "I am completely destroyed"

It's a combination of two Mogwai songs, sorry to ruin the mystique!

Assuming you mean this band, what songs? The closest I can find to Batman was Batcat.

That's assuming you're not just fucking with me, which I actually get the feeling you might be. :lol:

There was an old post where he explained it, and considering I've never really listened to Mogwai, I could be completely misremembering :lol:

Think I posted this a while ago but for all the new folks here, my name refers to a criminal organization in a Terry Pratchett (RIP :( ) novel.

"GTog" is just a shortened version of my name, because I'm not very creative. IRL though, people call me Goyo. My brother's father in law is Mexican, and apparently Goyo is a volcano in Mexico and it sounds vaguely like the spanish version (Gregorio) of my actual name, Greg. Nice to meet you.

So now I have Goyo stitched on the collapsible chair I haul around to lawn events and backyard parties.

Goyo is diminutive for Gregorio, Like Greg will be for Gregory or Joe for Joseph or Mike for Michael.

And yes, Goyo is a nickname for the volcano named Popocatépetl, because according to the legend, the spirit of the volcano appears to people as an elder man, whose name is Gregorio Chino Popocatépetl.
