Names -> Cool Band Names -> Latest Entries

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.

Industrial Deafness There's this advert on the UK sports stations about Industrial Deafness and i always think it would make a good thrash metal band name. crazyj
Refrigerator Magnates It is a pun on "refrigerator magnets" with various possible humorous implications. D. Melody Dole, MD
Memento Demori It is "Remember the deaths" in Italian. Its what friends and family put on so called witches graves in Salem. It was my band name, but not anymore.  JonnyRiot
The Days That Say Elbow It comes from word play, as a variation on "The Knights That Say Ni" from "Monty Python And The Holy Grail". D. Melody Dole, MD
The Adnouns There ares such things as adverbs, pronouns, and proverbs. To complete the foursome, there should be such things as adnouns! Nicole Velocin
Rescue Gloria From Eggshells As a child I learned the Christmas song "Angels We Have Heard On High". Back then "they" had me pronouncing the Line "Gloria in excelsis Deo" more or less as "Gloria in ex chell cease day oh". Later I became more or less acquainted with the differences in pronunciation between classical Latin and "church Latin", and tried singing it both ways, with "excelsis" being variously pronounced as something like I learned as a child, or more like "ex kell cease", the latter seeming more or less to fit classical Latin pronunciation. Then, during my early college days I sang in a church choir. The director of that choir insisted that we pronounce "excelsis" pretty much as "egg shell cease", fitting neither classical Latin nor "church Latin" as I'd thought I had some idea of those pronunciation patterns. In any event, that sort of spoiled the song for me, as it seemed so crass to sing something that sounded like "Gloria in eggshell". Since then I've seen that that is a commonly taught pronunciation (for that song at least), but it never ceases to bug me. I'd rather sing that line (or hear it sung) most any other way than what sounds like it includes the super crass "Gloria in eggshell"! So, hence my suggested band name, "Rescue Gloria From Eggshells". D. Melody Dole, MD
Texan Lemonade ??? GlamRockNinjaLord
Bastard Toadflax It comes from the name of a wildflower. Since flower names for people (and sometimes bands) are popular, here's a suggestion for a different flower name that isn't among the usual flower names, such as Rose, Daisy, Violet, Lily, or Iris, etc. D. Melody Dole, MD
Dumb Truck I heard a toddler call a dump truck this once. Sounds like a good name to use as a temporary name while you try to think of something better. JeReMy
Neftin Prog It's a character in Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus. I think the name sounds cool JeReMy
Drinker The Dinosaur There actually is a dinosaur named "Drinker", with its uncharacteristic dinosaur name. Its name comes from the middle name of paleontologist Edward Drinker Cope D. Melody Dole, MD
