I went to change my name and URL on sound cloud, but it's already taken, what are your thoughts?

Use whatever you want, but if already taken apply the mighty spoonerism.

If you are at a level where you are registering the URL yourself then it doesn't make a difference what it is. If you get to a stage where it will make a difference then someone will change it for you.

Dave Mathews Band are just a bunch of wannabe copycats, they were gifted with really cool initials and they couldn't make them look more boring

Crying was going to be my solution, but I think it's been taken.

The Crying, Crying From Above, Heliacal Cry, Crying [FL]

There are 18 (probably more) bands called Leviathan, 7 artists / bands called Shining. Funny things happen when one of them becomes super huge, other bands with the same name become irrelevant and stuff like "wtf dis is not wiggercore, it's hip hop, dislike!" will happen or "upvote the REAL Leviathan, not that pop punk shit!" and other ways of people getting confused. Clearly an artist's fault.
