Whenever I hear a cool phrase somewhere, I like to exclaim "That would make a cool band name". This page is a list of such names.
I can not verify whether these names have been taken yet or not. If your band happens to already use one of these names sorry. If you want to use a name you see here, you'll need to verify it's not already in use.
The 20 most recent entries are listed below. There are 10504 Cool Band Names entries on the site.
|The Earthupials||In a class I was once in, the topic of the day was Marsupials, that group of mammals that lack placentas, and mostly have pouches. Somebody asked, Why aren't they Earthupials, since they live on Earth, not Mars? I remembered that through the years, and now, I've eventually thought "Oh, a possible Cool Band Name!".||D. Melody Dole, MD|
|Rhinoceros Chocolate||A pun on Rhinoceros Auklet, a seabird of the North Pacific, closely related to puffins.||Regina Haniger|
|Helen Yum In Markham||I tried to ask "Siri" (that robotic "person" to talk to on my iPhone) what was the common name of "Helenium amarum", a flower in the sunflower family. The common name is something like Bitter Sneezeweed. Siri couldn't help, since the only thing she made out of "Helenium amarum" was "Helen Yum In Markham". Then I thought, ah, that could be a good Cool Band Name!||Marcia Zarwetten-Grassi|
|Inner anarchy||I came up with this name trying to come up with a name for my rock band but I decided to give it a different name so if anyone wants it it's there's||Alice|
|Hasbro Smythe||Just a fake name I wrote as a kid while writing a screenplay. More like a pseudonym than a group name. I don't if it would sell any albums, but the first name sold a lot of toys.||Guy Dance|
|ben for the rebound||A friend of mine has a crush but the girl is taken. When they break up someone said that ben will go in for the rebound. I think this name would be good for punk rock/pop or emo band||beardangel777|
|Twin Decision||So, I was watching the Dolan Twins on YouTube (check them out, btw) and they mentioned making a "twin decision", and I thought it would be a cool name for a duo of twins!||wand erection|
|Colder in Society||Just randomly came to us in a conversation.||Jake Leigh|
|Lead Singer and the Backup Band||There's quite a few bands that follow this naming convention (Elvis Costello and the Attractions, Huey Lewis and the News, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) so why not a band that simply spells out that convention. The only problem would be the lead singer having to explain that his name isn't "Lead Singer".||Brian Kelly|
|Flat Tire Donut||I have a flat tire on my car, and it made me think about donuts.||Lance Crackers|
|My Name Is Kentucky Fried Chicken||A Family Feud Fast Money answer. Q: A name given to a boy.A: Kentucky Fried Chicken)||Frosty The Cat|
|Duh-Duhn||It sounds like someone trying to "sing" an instrumental or a riff.||Lance Crackers|
|Dingleberries For The Pickin'||It sounds gross, but if your don't think about the "dingleberries" part, it sounds cool.||Nerdy Joe|
|Tigers With Tooth Decay||I was thinking what dental disease a wild animal might have.||Jackdaw Kennedy|
|Whiskey Dick||we've all experienced it||Brick House|
|Lobster Chicken||Someone's misheard line from Al Stewart's song "Year Of The Cat". It's weird.||Farrah Fawcett-Minors|
|Five Wax Jimmy||I've watched a skit by Jimmy Fallon about him singing Barbara Ann to his wax figures, when those wax figures started to sing back to him. Well I just think it's pretty darn good for a band name||Gordie|
|The Pseudomorphs||Sometimes a mineral within a confined space in a rock is altered over time into a different mineral. Sometimes the confined space forces the new mineral to take on a geometrical shape reflecting the old mineral's crystal structure rather then the new mineral's own crystal structure. Such a mineral specimen so shaped for a previous mineral's structure is called a pseudomorph. Yesterday I was thinking how The Pseudomorphs might make a good band name, mainly because it just sounds neat. But it could also metaphorically say something about the band's history.||Toni Minot|
|Rosebud On Wry With Mustard||An old Saturday Night Live sketch spoofing Citizen Kane, with the actors are trying to find out what the title words mean.||Lance Crackers|
|Ketchup With The Thymes||It's a pun on the phrase "catch up with the times".||Nicole Velocin|
