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 11097 Cool Band Names entries on the site.
|Basinets And Castanets||Two words coming together because of their vaguely similar sounds, even though they designate dissimilar things. As a band name it might have a rhythmic aura as if both were musical instruments.||Richard Wetfuss|
|Speak Softly And The Big Hickory Sticks||Wordplay on the saying "Speak softly and carry a big stick", based on the fact that "carry a" sounds like Carya, the scientific genus name for hickory.||Richard Wetfuss|
|The Defecators||Couldn't resist. I have a warped mind.||Woody Thomas|
|Max E. Padd and the Kotecks||Self explanatory||Woody Thomas|
|The Urinators||Why not? Could go Russian with 'Yuri and the Yurinators.'||Woody Thomas|
|Society of the Barking Fish||Purely random; no rhyme or reason||Woody Thomas|
|Dylan Hates Ketchup||A long story, but originates from a brief phone conversation I had with Bob Dylan in February 1974, when I was 17. True story.||Woody Thomas|
|Ants Have Eaten the Sky||It's a long story||Woody Thomas|
|Curtis E. Flush and the Toilets||Here's the deal: I just discovered this website and am making entries as they pop into my head.||Woody Thomas|
|The Pedophile Priests||A friend and I were trying to come up with offensive/in poor taste band names and I thought of this one. Could be embellished to Father Fondler and the Pedophile Priests. Sorry.||Woody Thomas|
|The Defibrillators||Always thought this would be a cool band name. I would guess there is at least one band with this name out there somewhere.||Woody Thomas|
|Exploding Teeth||This came to me in a dream. Seriously||Woody Thomas|
|Mickey Rat Freckle||I saw that name after looking at pictures of freckles that look like Mickey Mouse...||Brionna Secret|
|Give Me A Worn Apple||Apparently some DJ's heard this message while playing Jim Nabors' Christmas album backwards.||Francis A. Sissy|
|Children Of The Idle Mind||Another name based on a mondegreen, this one from Billy Joel's song "We Didn't Start The Fire" (where he sings "Children of thalidomide"). (Ed: Personally, I thought it was "children of the little mind" for so long.)||Rock Maninoff|
|One-Nostrilled Snorkel Thief||Comes from an episode in Weird Al Yankovic's song "Albuquerque"||Richard Wetfuss|
|Lou's Cart||Anagram of "Crotalus," the genus to which larger rattlesnakes belong.||Richard Wetfuss|
|Puff Subtracter||Wordplay on the name of the snake, Puff Adder.||Richard Wetfuss|
|The Imaginators||Occasionally I've heard someone say "imaginate" when they meant "imagine".||Richard Wetfuss|
|Mustard On Sleep||Recently I heard someone say, heading for his bedroom, "I need to catch up on sleep." Someone asked, "wonder if he need to mustard on sleep, or just ketchup?" Ah, I thought, a cool band name could come out of that.||Richard Wetfuss|
