Our main hero is going to have a t-shirt of an 80’s metal band, but we need a name for it. Like Judas Priest, Van Halen or something like that – it needs to be a band that doesn’t exist. Thanks 🙂

I think this would be a good opportunity to do some cross promotion by calling the band Kung Fury (it’s worth asking David Sandberg).
Or why not contact the ’80s-loving glam/metal band Steel Panther? Of course, they’d have to really, REALLY tone done any song they do, but they seem like great guys to work with.
Failing “Kung Fury” or “Steel Panther”, how about:

Any credible 80’s rock band uses Umlauts e.g. Motörhead.
It would be good if it resembles any existing band.. Few ideas:
Irönhead (see Motörhead)
Irön Missy or Irön Maid (see Iron Maiden)
Manöver or Womanöwar (see Manowar)
Steellicä (od course written as Metallica)
Bläck Saturdäy or Bläck Sundäy (see Black Sabbath)
regarding the comment from Derek, if Steel Panther is in, then I would anyway change it to Steel Pänther. That’s just much cooler with Umlauts

The Name of the Metalband should “Violator” as a ironic reference to the best band in the 80s > Depeche Mode. Regarding the album’s title, Martin Gore of Depeche Mode said, “We called it Violator as a joke. We wanted to come up with the most extreme, ridiculously Heavy Metal title that we could. I’ll be surprised if people will get the joke. 🙂

Blaze of Glory. Would also work well with random umlauts all over. Bläzë öf Glörÿ.
Otherwise, wouldn’t it be nice with a Laibach reference?
Preferably, the t-shirt backside could be “Occupied Moon Tour”, but that’s for Iron Sky 3 I suppose…

I guess you know the “documentary” movie “This is Spinal Tap” – about a fictional metal band? I guess you’d probably have to obtain permission to use the name, but it would be a terrific reference to a great 80s movie and also to a fictional band that did actually perform live a few times.
Their songs (written and performed by the actors) are actually pretty good and lots of fun.
In (the unlikely) case that you don’t know the movie: IMDB

Hmm iam thinking about mixing up 80ties bandnames
(Black Sabbath, Motörhead, Judas Priest)
(Twisted Sister, Motörhead, Iron Maiden)
And for the logodesign you could use the old metallica or manowar logo design
In the comments somebody posted already “Kung Füry” Why not using “Kung Führy”? It would be more similar with the german “Führer”
