Ever been curious how to come up with a DJ name? Music publicist and Sirius XM radio host Eric Alper has an easy solution: Just mash together “DJ” and your biggest fear, and see how it sounds.

Let it never be said that people aren’t willing to open themselves up on Twitter. Some, in fact, were willing to divulge their deepest, darkest fears, provided it sounded good enough as a DJ name. There was one glaring omission, however: “DJ Can’t Think Of A Good Joke For This Trending Tweet.”
