Names -> Cool Band Names -> A, Page 2

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 Aglets Because it's one of the "Ten Things You Didn't Know Had Names" in "The Book Of Lists". Aglets are the plastic ends of a shoelace that help string your shoes.

Ain't Afraid To Kyo There's this song by a band called Dir en Grey. They made a song called "Ain't Afraid to Die". Die is the name of the guitarist in the band, so I changed it to Ain't Afraid To Kyo. (Kyo is the lead singer). This works in 2 ways: 1)Kyo sounds like 'go' 2) In Japanese, it can be seen as "not afraid of loving Kyo", which would make a great name for a Dir en Grey tribute band! Kyo Lord XVII
Ain't Nobody Got Time For Dat Why not make a Sweet Brown reference? JeReMy

Aixelsyd It's how a dyslexic person would say dyslexia. I think it would be a punk band name. phamilto
AKA Everyone says "AKA" for "Also Known As". Keep the fans guessing -also known as-what? Mark Silverman
AKA*Blonde Good for a girl rock band... if your all blonde and it sounds cool. Katie

The Alan Myers Memorial He was the first drummer for Devo...died of cancer last month. G
Albatross This is an awesome classic rock band name that me and my buddies came up with Wood
Albert's Fantastic Journey This is the name of my brother's band. The bassist Kurt's dog is named Albert and he is a sweet dog so they decided on Albert's Fantastic Journey. The original band name was Electric Shoe, so I think this is an improvement. Maggie
Albino Black Sheep It's cool because it makes no sense. It's off a website I found. billy
Albino Cat In A Snow Storm My friend gave me a blank piece of paper and said it was an albino cat in a snow storm, and I found it hilarious.  Lisha
Albino Pachuco Could be a bunch of white guys posing as latino thugz in zoot suits or a bunch of white guys in t-shirts and head bandanas wearing low baggy pants and if they got a bunch of tatoos of the vigin Mary and the word "Jesus" and always end each sentence with the words "ay" or "ese".  Badboybear
The Albino Worms I once had a dream that my dark purple inflatable chair turned into a kiddie pool and a bunch of my friends and I were swimming in it. When we were done swimming, the chair returned to its normal size and shape, but had water in it, and when we dumped the water, there were albino worms in the chair. Thinking about it now, it would be an interesting band name. amanda
Alchemical Centrifuge It means to turn metal into gold by separating contained materials of different gravities. A heavy metal King Crimson, if you will. FretBored
Alchemist Blood I'd heard of a song from a friend called 'Alchemy of Love,' and figured I'd tweak it a bit---thinking that Alchemist Blood sounds cooler. xxdaronioxx
AlcoHarlots If a female group had that name, I would have to see them for that reason alone. Brady
AlcoHole I was writing down a bunch of bandnames one day and then I accidentaly put an "e" at the end of Alcohol without knowing and when my bandmates went over the list, they said that "Alcohole" was the best. BeeTleJuce
Alcoholic Crisis for all punk-rock bands, can't play without alcohol :) tonio
Alegrķa Incontenible In Spanish, it means "Unrestrained Happyness". It's meant to be ironical or something. I got it while thinking a good name for my band. BiLLiE the Argentinean
Alexipharmic Cyanide Alexipharmic - adj. Expelling or counteracting poison; antidotal. Cyanide - a very toxic substance that is a well-known poison. I was reading a thread on Ultimate-Guitar.com, and I ran across the term alexipharmic. So I looked up its definition and came up with this. It's cool because it's like saying "A poisonous antidote." Asfastasdark
Algernon vs. Chadwick From a feud of imaginary animals that I had in 7th grade. Susan
The Algernon-Gordon Effect This comes from a really whacked-up story I had to read in school called Flowers For Algernon. It's about a mentally retarded man named Charlie Gordon who undergoes a operation to enhance his brain power. Before getting the procedure, he goes through a series of "races" with a mouse named Algernon who received the operation before him (mouse runs through a maze, Charlie uses pencil on an outline). After Charlie gets the op, his IQ triples, and he's running experiments, which results in a study written by him called the Algernon-Gordon Effect: Intelligence will decrease as fast as it is gained. The mouse's intellect fell, then Charlie's. Really weird story, but you should see the movie version of it (which the whole 8th grade at my school had to endure the cheese factor of)! I joked to my friends about using it as a band name, they actually liked the idea. I might even use it eventually! Alex
Alias Steel It is simple how I come up with this, My friend wanted to call our band "Steel". I added the word "Alias" in front of it. As we all know, the word "Alias" means "otherwise known as". Cool? Mark Blackburn
Alice Stoic, like Wheezer. Matryshoka
Alice Cooper's Christmas Pudding I heard a radio DJ say it. I couldn't stop laughing. GlamRockNinjaLord

alien avenue It just sounds great and like my road because everyone is strange down my road! Pip
Alien Corn My best friend came up with it during her first experience with Hominy (ya know, that nasty bloated corn?), and we both thought it sounded like a techno or punk rock band. Michi
Alien Missfits Me and my friend, we have a group, and since she knows we're missfits, her nick (when others are around) is Missfit and my nick is Alien, because I act like somebody that comes from another planet... or atleast that's what they say. So me and her just added the 2 things and thats what it came out to be: We're missfits even among aliens! @__@  Dafne Davis (Bunny)
Alien Pubic Hair It's a line from the movie the book/movie "The Exorcist" and sounds like a good punk band name. beserker
Alien Suckerheads You know like that movie with all those aliens with big fat heads, looked like walking blowpops. All they would say is eeek eeek eeeek and then vaporize a building. I think they were from canada or something. badboybear
Alien Vomit In the movie "3 Ninjas" (the first one), there is a japanese metal group that are tryng to think of a band name, and one of the fatter dudes spits out "how about Alien Vomit" and for some reason I remembered that through to high school, and our band used it. PNKRCK69
Alien8 The government alienates people so I figured a good punk band name would be Alien8. Joe Grinstead
the alienators!  JJ Cabero
Alienroids hanging with the fellas. Name just came up. sounds like rock band juiced.  Jeremy Moski
Alive In Tucson On the sitcom "The Last Man On Earth", the main character spends much of the first episode driving around the country spray painting "Alive In Tucson" on signs to indicate he survived the plague. I think it sounds cool. Brian Kelly
Alkapello It was my old bands name. it sounds like al pacino. it was funny at the time Tyler
All 2 Senses It could mean you are clueless. Punk Name DEF Tiki man
All About Sam There's this girl at my school and she has the weirdest sayings which would be titles of songs: "Oh My Cheetos", "Are You For Serious?", and "I got a dead buttcheek!" Junior
All About Us My friends and I were pretending to be cool and these boys say, "Hey, dorks, what's your problem?" And I said, "Sorry, it's just all about us," (it was something like that) and my friends and I were trying to start a band at the same time and my friends said that All About Us might be a good name Somebody
All But Earth The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy says that this planet is actually a huge computer meant to find the meaning of life, and that we a just part of the program - and all but Earth seems to know this. Kind of a cruel joke if you think about it. Back to the band name, it also sounds kind of cool. Princess Ana
All Comers Whenever there was an amateur night at an entertainment venue, the host would invite "all comers" to join in. It's a double entendre, and those are always cool.  Cool Joe
All Fallen Angels My Friend was watching the movie "The Crow" and heard something like "all angels will fall" and he fixed it up and now its a band name... =) G
All Hail Iommi! Listening to Sabbath and thinking that Tony Iommi is an amazing guitarist, I decided there needs to be a band called this. Yes, the exclamation mark IS necessary! G
All My Friends Do LARP I did suggest this to my bandmates (because it's kinda true for me), but they didn't really dig it much. LARP of course is Live-Action Role Play, the art of wielding foam swords against fictitious enemy factions and generally acting like you're in Skyrim for a few days. Crafthead
All of a Sudden It hits you in the face. I was looking at this thing then all of a sudden it's just laying on the ground. I was like, "Did you see that, all of a sudden it fell!" Then I said, whoa, All Of A Sudden is sweet. Leo Incarnato
All of The Above My friend said it while we were studying for a test. We both thought it would be a cool name for a rock band. Russty
All Profane I have been thinking for months on what name I could think of to call my band that didn't sound stupid and had a meaningful message to it. So at first I was in religion class, bored as hell and then the teacher said something like , "Profane means dirty in the Bible", and I thought, that sounds like a cool name for a band but it needs something more to it. So I thought for a while about the name and I came up with "All Profane". The name is basically saying that we are all sinners and we live in sin everyday. I haven't told my band about it yet but I think its a cool name (plus they can't make up their mind on name I come up with). Please don't use this name. My band is already using it. Pobo
All Shots Fired It has a ring to it, good for a heavy rock n roll band Tim Birch
All The Baldwins Are Dead Mr. Macke says it in the South Park Movie when they announce we're at war with Canada and we bombed the Baldwin residence. Max
All the King's Men Well, it's a throwback to a mursery rhyme, and any punk band would enjoy that. It would be good for a Christian rock band, cuz Jesus is King, so, All the King's Men. ( I guess the would have to be guys to pull it off...) Dave, the Dave from Dave and the Daves
All Things Political my morman friend was so sheltered when she moved to our town. it was bout the bill and monica time and we were talking bout prostitutes, she didnt quite understand what the big joke was a bout, then she said, what so funny? arent prostitutes political. she also asked me what a cercumsicion is (yea, i cant spell but u know what i mean) and when we said orgasim, she didnt know what it was, so she went and got a dictionary!!! the great and powerful gillian
