Names -> Cool Band Names -> A, Page 1

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.

Acier Blue Nabi This is the name of my band, and I came up with it because I thought of Dir en grey and how their name is a combination of German, French, and English. I thought “it would be cool to have our name like that” so I changed the Japanese version (it easer for me in Japanese) of Steel Blue Butterfly into 5 different languages (original Japanese, German, French, English, and Korean) and put together three combinations of each and I liked the sound of that one so I choose it. I came up with “Koutetsu Ao Chou” because it sounded cool to have a blue butterfly covered in steel. Acier is French Blue is English and Nabi is Korean. It will take a while for us but watch for us!! Ok! You will not be disappointed by our sound! Keiten Tokushin

Acquired Taste I just thought it was kool cuz its acually kinda true if ya think about it.. every person as an individual has "acquired taste". julie

Act of Union, 1841. This is the thing that turned Canada into two colonies and made us what we are today. phamilto
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.
