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 9737 Cool Band Names entries on the site.
|Abscissa Garden||Garden metaphors for music-making have been used before. Abscissa sounds like a kind of flower, although it isn't. In fact it sounds like a fine flower to have an inordinate amount of in said garden!||Tess O. Gosset|
|Mantissa Garden||Garden metaphors for music-making have been used before. Mantissa sounds like a kind of flower, although it isn't. In fact it sounds like a fine flower to add to the characteristic flowers of any garden!||Tess O. Gosset|
|Tangerine And Banshee Band||As a child, I always got the words "tangerine" and "tambourine" confused. And from the first time I heard someone refer to a banshee, I thought it was an intentional or unintentional alteration of the word "banjo".||Tess O. Gosset|
|Zephyr And Kestrel Ensemble||I thought this was funny because "zephyr" and "kestrel" both sound like they could well be musical instruments, although they are not.||Tess O. Gosset|
|Silly String Ensemble||I thought of this jokingly, as if music could be made with "silly string".||Tess O. Gosset|
|Anal Sextet||I was thinking of a group of six anal-retentive musicians. What else?||Tess O. Gosset|
|Oral Sextet||I was thinking of a group of six singers. What else?||Tess O. Gosset|
|CP8||It's a security code I just had here on Amiright. It is also similar to CP3, the nickname for NBA player Chris Paul.||JeReMy|
|Nerdvana||It came from an episode of The Big Bang Theory (one of my top 3 favorite shows on TV right now). It would be a great name for a Nirvana cover band with nerdy guys.||JeReMy|
|Deer In The Headlights||It would describe a band just starting out and having that "deer in the headlights" look.||Joe Lukewarm|
|Poopstick McGee and the Flying Walruses||Saw this on TVTropes... somewhere...||IHaveNoBrain|
|Fartsy McBrainpoop||I saw it on Failbook and lol'ed so hard; I just had to share this gem!||IHaveNoBrain|
|He Said Leave||I got it from a male librarian who kicked out an unruly teen out of the library.||Paul Bear|
|Mookie Wilson||Wilson was an outfielder for the New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays from 1980 to 1991. Also, Pearl Jam was going to call themselves "Mookie Blaylock" after a different professional athlete nicknamed "Mookie".||JeReMy|
|*knock* *knock* *knock* Penny Hardaway||The three "*knock*"'s represent the sound of knocking and it is reference to the show The Big Bang Theory and former NBA player Penny Hardaway||JeReMy|
|Mellow Enzyme Horses||I was laying in bed, in uneasy sleep with heartburn. Before I woke up enough to know what was happening and elevate my head and take an acid reducer, a song was droning through my head in my half dream state. The main repeated words to the song that I can remember were "mellow enzyme horses".||Tess O. Gosset|
|Meeting in Mensroom||It came from Wrongfully Accused. Leslie Nielsen's character was trying to escape from prison (his character was wrongfully accused, hence the name of the movie) but he was trying to come up with his fake identity and where he was going with places in a fishing shop he was in. His cover-up for where he was going was a "meeting in the Mensroom" (as in Men's room)||JeReMy|
|Action 52||Action 52 is a 1991 NES release/1993 Sega release. This cost $199, which sounds like a horrible deal, until you realize it is less than $4 a game, and then you realize it actually was a horrible deal since all 52 games suck big time. Why not make it a Sum 41/Blink 182-esque band name?||JeReMy|
|Mackleless||No disrespect to Macklemore, but I just thought of this while listening to "Thrift Shop"||JeReMy|
|Ain't Nobody Got Time For Dat||Why not make a Sweet Brown reference?||JeReMy|
