Gold - From Now On As 'Gggolddd'


To increase the possibility of being found on the online social medias, the Dutch experimental/post rock collective Gold have decided to be called/spelled from now on as Gggolddd.

Statement from the band as follows: "From now on we are called GGGOLDDD. Same name, different spelling. Over the years so many of you confronted us with the near impossibility of finding us online. Even if you follow us. We’ve heard you and we agree. A name should be an identifier as much as it is an identity. As we are about to start a new stage in our adventure, we decided that this is the moment to improve on this.

"You can now follow (and find!!!) us on all platforms under GGGOLDDD and enjoy the experience of finding us in almost one click. More news will be announced soon."

It's a legitimate problem, but a pretty horrible solution - was GGGOLDDD really the best they could think of?

Sounds like what a cheesy 90's pop group would call themselves

Luckily you will still find Gggolddd if you type in "gold" in the ms search machine.

You're all wrong.
The Chemical Element Formerly Known As Aurum would have been the only logical and consistent new name.

There's many things they can use with the gold name. Golden Mountains, Gold sun, Gold Harpoon, Gold poison, Gold Nintendo cartridges.

"Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee." Gen 17.5

And God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name." Gen 17.15

I wonder if it was a biblical thing, like these?

Oh, you betcha! Just google "The Chemical Element Formerly Known As Aurum" and you will either find Prince Rogers Nelson... ...or this very thread. Ta-dah!

I should definitely hurry up to register this terrific and unique band name before the Dutch get wind of my brilliant idea...

It was either the obscure shitty reference of some guy shouting GOLD, or the reference of "That's GGGOLDDD, Jerry! GGGOLDDD!". Given all of the cool and fun shit I never would have found without this site, I thought I'd return the favour.

How abour Gold Of Fire?

After all, adding "Of Fire" after the band's name sure has worked before...
