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.

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
Vaginese Takeout My brother came up with this while we were coming up with funny band name ideas and he saw a Chinese takeout menu. JeReMy
Nat King Coleslaw Everyone has heard of Nat King Cole, and everyone knows about coleslaw, so why not have a mashup? Matt
Technicolor Weather I saw this was the name of an episode of the TV series Strangest Weather On Earth. And I thought, that would make a great band name. I can't decide what style of music they'd play though. Edward
The Principals Of Lust You mean there's actually a school of lust?! Open Mike Knight
Robot Fly Botflies are a kind of flies that lay their eggs under the skin of animals (sometimes including humans), and then their larvae become internal parasites therein. This name carbines "Robot" and "botfly". Waldo D. Law
Siri On The Rag Cellphones can have PMS, too. Sheila Oh
Popcorn The Baptist Animal I was at a natural history museum, and near where I was, a group of kids were looking at some mounted animals on display there. I overheard one kid say what sounded for all the world like "Popcorn, the Baptist animal". Naturally, such a randomly whimsical stringing together of words made me curious as to what he might actually have said. I thought I probably would never find out. But after that group of kids moved on I saw what exhibit they had been near when the baffling exclamation was made. The exhibit included a pronghorn, an animal of western North America, sometimes inaccurately called "antelope" (true antelopes being strictly native to the "old world"). Pronghorns are known for ability to run at extreme speeds. Then it suddenly occurred to me that the kid probably has said "Pronghorn, the fastest animal". On the way home I suddenly thought, Ah, my mishearing of that could make a good Cool Band Names submission! Often the beauty of misheard lyrics and ideas from other mishearings is that they give us phrases so random-appearing and cliche-free that one simply couldn't possibly contrive them. Without the mishearing, I doubt that anyone could ever just sit down and dream up a phrase so chaotically off-the-wall. Furthermore, as a potential band name, a phrase like this would be virtually certain to not be already taken. D. Melody Dole, MD
Acoustipranx Name for an acoustic band whose schtick is to do parodies of songs. K2studio
Transhuman Explosion Found in a forum thread making fun of those crazy people that think technology will advance incredibly quickly for some reason or another. Kyle
Nuclear Fetus Awhile back I was in class with friends and we were talking about our favorite bands. I brought up Nuclear Assault and my friend brought up Dying Fetus then out of nowhere this kid near us just blurted out Nuclear Fetus. Lmao!! MAS
Pixieland Band A pun on the term "Dixieland band", a pretty much generic term, although actual bands have had both "Dixieland" and "band" in their names. Just what would constitute "Pixieland" music as represented by "Pixieland Band" would be curious to find out. Blake DeKalb
The No-Trumps Perhaps a band opposed to Donald Trump's bid for the U.S. presidency? Blake DeKalb
eMpTV A play on the cable network MTV, which would also describe the fans who still watch it. John Doe, Jr.
Masters of Puppets Good name for a Metallica tribute band. JeReMy
False Witness Death Liars One of the replies to a whacked-out conspiracy video on YouTube by that guy who claimed that Katy Perry is really JonBenet Ramsey made fun of the guy for calling everybody who doesn't believe him "False Witness Death Liars," claiming he saw them at a concert. I thought that really WOULD be a good name. The Skuz
Sigh Whickerin' Here's still another possible band name I thought up from my father's explanation way back when as to something my cousin was apparently trying to say. Back in the days when televisions had vertical and horizontal holds, the picture could go distorted sideways obliquely form the horizontal hold being not well adjusted. When that condition happened I would hear my younger cousin, before he could talk plain, say that the TV was "sky goblin" or perhaps "sky gobblin'". I wondered where such an expression came from. My father told me back then that my cousin was probably trying to say "sigoglin" or "sigodlin", the first syllable sounding like "sigh" in either case, two among of several variants on a colloquial expression for anything skewed from a normally expected right angle or rectangular shape. He mentioned other colloquialisms for the same meaning, including "antigoglin", "antigodlin", and "siwhickerin", the first syllable again sounding like "sigh" in the last example. I think the best band name idea from the last example comes from spelling it "Sigh Whickerin' " D. Melody Dole, MD
Sky Gobblin' An alternate take on what I thought I heard my cousin once say. Back in the days when televisions had vertical and horizontal holds, the picture could go distorted sideways obliquely form the horizontal hold being not well adjusted. When that condition happened I would hear my younger cousin, before he could talk plain, say that the TV was "sky goblin" or perhaps "sky gobblin' ". I wondered where such an expression came from. My father told me back then that my cousin was probably trying to say "sigoglin" or "sigodlin", the first syllable sounding like "sigh" in either case, two among of several variants on an expression for anything skewed from a normally expected right angle or rectangular shape. He mentioned other colloquialisms for the same meaning, including "antigoglin", "antigodlin", and "siwhickerin", the first syllable again sounding like "sigh" in the last example. This hearing of my cousin's probable mispronunciation now strikes me as another phrase with potential as a band name. D. Melody Dole, MD
