How about Clash of the Branes, from the Ekpyrotic scenario for the origin in which we leive in one of the branes, which was set of expanding by being hit by another brane. For that matter, what about Ekpyrotic Scenario?

Rapid Expansion

or

Something from Nothing

To take an idea from the late Carl Sagan, Star Stuff. It has a double meaning--the band members are stars in the making.

hellfire
Ylem

In the 1940s physicists George Gamow, Ralph Alpher, and Robert Herman developed a theory about how chemical elements formed during what is now called the big bang. They concluded that some of those elements, along with faint traces of heat from that event, should still be detectable. To celebrate their collaboration, Gamow whimsically dubbed the substance from which the Universe formed "Ylem" ("EYE-lem," an ancient term for "the primordial substance") and relabeled this Cointreau liqueur bottle in its honor.

Or if you're not a fan of the big bang :uhh: Steady State...

Since you rock band types are utterly obsessed by what is "cool", how about:

Dark Energy

More suggestions:

Particle Horizon
Scale Factor

My favourite:

The Friedmann-Lemaitre-Robertson-Walker Metric

JV
maybe:

- the first three minutes
- genesis, is already used, i think.
- expanding
- high density
- t=zero

I like this one, myself. Also, what about Dark Matter?

hmm.. depends on what kind of stuff you play

cosmic afterbirth?

It's a strech and not really associated with creation that much, but it sounds ok: Agglomeration

I like the name "Loren Booda" for a band. Might be some copyright issues, though.

"Heat Death" is still the best band name I know of. But that's the end of the universe.

Depends on what bangin' one is referring to!

Lots of good ones already! (I especially like setAI's & cragwolf's suggestions.)

13 billion (as in "years ago"...ok, it's closer to 14, but 13 sounds more mysterious/ominous)

Quantum Foam (kind of cheezy I suppose)

Infinity Point (also kind of cheezy)

True 80's glory metal. POWER. WAAAAH!!!

How about $$\pi$$? Has that been done before? Well, any Greek letter would do.

I just now thought of this: The Artists Formerly Known As $$\pi$$.

I love it!
