    I'm going to make a website about the music industry, people who work in it, what they do, industry news, money in music etc and thought I had a really good name for it (BehindTheMusic), only to find out that there was a TV series with that name and a blog on the Guardian (one of the UK's biggest newspapers) with a similar theme and the same name.

    So my question is, can anyone think of a good name? It can be as literal or abstract as you like. I'm not too worried about ranking for certain things as I'm not starting the site to make money from it, I'm starting it to make contacts in the music industry and so I just want it to sound good, and preferably be number 1 for my own site name (which I wouldn't be with BehindTheMusic)!

    Rep and thanks for any good suggestions.

    It's worth a try as it's not a niche that anyone else would particularly want to make a site in as there's not much money in it and someone might think of something great on the spot!

    If they have any intention whatsoever of ever making a site in that niche, of course they won't share it but if not (which I can't imagine many people would), there's no reason why they shouldn't.

    You can try something like "Music backdrop". Which is "the background" of music.

    All of these are available:

    IGetsPowder.com
    TheFlowz.com
    PushingTunes.com
    PimpingMusic.com
    Musicizzle.com
    Musicustry.com
    MusicalBusiness.com

    That last one is a couple grand though. I like the first three myself, but I got enough domains...

    Hey, this is gold. The name is very catchy and it is available as a dotCom, so hurry, before someone takes it away.

    Here it is: Unmuted Ears -- got the meaning??

    As I said, a dot com for it is available so hurry!

    What r u waiting for?? Someone is looking at it too. Good domain names vanish as smoke in the air.

    Thanks for the suggestion and no, it will be about people who make money in the music industry who are not musicians (eg A&R, promotion/PR people, radio pluggers, people who licence music to films, record label owners, music website owners etc).

    That domain could be misread as Blood Year.
