Names -> Cool Band Names -> A, Page 3

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.

All Your Base From the famous video game mistranslation, "all your base are belong to us"...sounds like the first part of that would be a cool name for a band. Joseph Fernandez
All Your Base Are Belong To Us If you've ever played the Zero Wing game in it's English form, you'll know what I'm talking about. This game was so poorly translated. Here's the intro just so you can see how sad the translation was. Captain: What happen? Mechanic: Somebody set up us the bomb! Operator: We get signal Captain: What! Operator: Main screen turn on. Captain: it's you!! Cats: How are you gentlemen!! Cats: All your base are belong to us!!! Josh:Valos
All-Access Pass So then your fans could get All-Access Passes for "All-Access Pass". Aly McGugan
The All-Right Team Whenever a band needs encouragement, one can name it this, which is still said at some American football games. Rocky Balboa Constrictor
Allergic to Logic This band may be made up of politicians. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Allergic To Pork i am allergic to pork and some people call cops pigs, which is bad, but then it could have more than one meaning christy
Alleyways There dark and mysterious...just like your new band! not-so-superman
Almayer's Folly It's a book by Joseph Conrad, but who cares? You could replace almayer with anything you want to. The folly is because of most bands wanting to become famous, an that is, of course, a bit foolish. Mr. Bigglesworth
The Almighty Ducks Coz ducks are almighty. The
The Almighty Sandwhich The name speaks for itself. I came up with it when i had just eaten a rather seductive sandwich. So the name "Almighty Sandwich" just hit me like a sliced tomato. It sounds cool because of the word "Almighty".  Ryan
Almost Liquid because it just is. The IceMan
Almost Living  Cool because it sounds cool. I thought of what would be different and unique if I put almost in front of it. I thought of almost dead but that makes sense Spike
Alodda Colada Like "a lot of" pina coladas? For peeps who like to drink to much. My friend shouted that when her brother and his friends accidently left the top of the blender off when making pina coloadas. *Dia*
Aloha Mr. Sasquash hawaiin flight attendent meets big foot. you cant go wrong.  mwa
Alpaca Boy My mother calls my boyfriend "alpaca boy" (behind his back, of course) because he grew up on an alpaca farm. When his car died, he had to drive the van that his parents usually used to transport alpacas in. Alice
Alpha Centauri It's cool because when we jammed or gigs we want only on a night that is full of stars not cloudy. Sarz
The Alpha Females A different opposite of "Alpha male" JeReMy
Alphacrib Alpha is my favorite word to say. I don't know why, but it just sounds cool! And crib is just a word I hear people say in my hood.  Saloot
Alphaomega Zombiedemon Because Alpha is head and also means first, and Omega means last. I also think zombie and demons are cool looking most of the time. joker of hearts
Alpine My favorite type of apple cider is called Alpine. So, yea. Munchicano
Alright Alright Alright It's a Kevin Hart joke about the noises his dad (who was a crackhead) would make JeReMy
Altar Of Kings I feel that it had a metalic, dark mood thats perfect for a band who plays heavy or trash metal. I liked it but my other band mebers werent to sure so they ditched the name. hen12
Alter Ego It practically punched me in the face: When we are part of a band, we act characters. And it's in latin! Erich
The Altered Abyss Just looking through the names and putting a couple together to come up with a new screen name. logan
Altered Perceptions It just sounds cool. It is actually the name of my schools year book theme this year. My friend was just looking at the book and said,"Altered Perceptions, that sounds like a cool band name!" And I agree! Ari
Alternate Detour My band saw this in Philly, PA and thought it would be a good band name Evan
Alternative Control Well, this all started when I was just looking at my keyboard trying to figure out what the hell to call our band. And then...I just was staring at the Alt+Ctrl buttons and....It hit me...Alternative Control!! RWG (Random White Guy)
Alternative Thursdays kinda reminds me of the doors 'strange days'. and thursdays are cool, right...? Lenndogg
Altitude Because altitude means "height"; and a band should be high up in the charts. microsoft
Altitudes me and a friend were in geometry and we were learning about altitudes on the triangle. we did them all wrong and it was just really funny. i also thinks its a cool band name... melee
altogether just cuz it looks cool. has to be all lower case... it just looks cool. richard john
Aluminum Fashion It is a part of a line from "The Wizard Song"...Linkin Park fans should know what I'm talking about. Junior
Aluminum Foil Eaters I just thought it would be a good punk band name. alex
Aluminum Ring A tribute to our new clothes dryer, which uses a tin sounding ring to signify that the clothes are done drying (probably from a rubber clapper). It sounds like a baseball hitting an aluminum bat. Indy
Alunogenatic Alunogen is a name of a gem, adding things after the word just sound like it's YOURS. avputries
Amaranthus It's a flower, but it means the "Love-Lies-Bleeding" Flower. I thought that was pretty cool when my mom told me about it. Tyler
Amaretto Butterscotch A name in the same style as Vanilla Fudge. I just thought it would be cool to have a band name with the word Amaretto in it. And I don't really know why but I just like the way the words sound together. I just think it's time for another band with two flavors in it's name. It's just for fun. They would have songs that were just poppy and fun and catchy and made you feel good. Edward
Amarillo Armadillo This would be a good name for a country rock or western swing (country) band. I like it because it's fun to say and really memorable and it's alliterative and it rhymes. Both words are Spanish and in English it would translate to yellow little armored thing. So it's a lot catchier in Spanish. I think it could also be good for a band that has more of a Tex-Mex or Latin American sound to it. Edward
The Amaury I had a dream, and there was a flower called Amaury, so now our symbol is a dark rose. Collin
Ambiguous Descriptions If you don't know, I'm not telling you. CBcbcbcbcb
Ambisextrious Like ambidextrious...but with SEX...HAHA..ha.........*sigh* emily
Ambrosia Logical I was trying to come up with an enigmatic sort of name and "Ambrosia" (divine food;food of the gods) and "Logical" seemed to have a nonsensical but poetic ring when put together. When you add the word "logical" to anything, it gives a false sense of cleverness.  Door into Summer
Ambush to sneak out and attack, not a bad idea bob nutter
Amen Ra My friends and I were just making a band. Then we just thought up of Amen Ra (from the ancient Egyptian god). Phil
The Amenders To make amends is to fix a relationship, but the a prefix also means opposite. Mend means fix so it's breaking and fixing-with people, plus it sounds cool. Stuart
American Anarchy It would be an awesome band name Kastin
American Colours haha. get it. its AMERICAN colors but the COLOURS is spelled the british way. classic unfortunate canadian boxing glove
American Commies then you'd have to name the 1st album "Even-handed Justice" a friend and i were looking thru old books and i found this one on suspected commies in america's film/music industry during the 30s and 40s.....a WHOOLLE lotta grrrreeaattt actors/actresses got blacklisted (aka:fired from entertainment industry) and it turns out......all the commies were in the gov't all along.... talk about even-handed justice! penny lane
American Gothic My band and I were trying to come up with a name. I modeled it after the famous painting and I also thought it sounded pretty cool. Sadly my suggestion got turned down, and that band fell apart. I still think it's a cool name though! LoganBKing
The American Nightmare It's the opposite of "The American Dream", which supposedly died in 2008 or somewhere after. Since it involved owning a new home, the direct opposite would be owning a home that becomes a money pit. Or a really loud, offensive rock band living next door. Nick Sancutz
American Stag American can be a 'desireable' brand, and Stag is a strong animal. Ashton
American Standard It's the name on most public restroom fixtures... Katz
American Wasteband I was just sitting playing the game "American Wasteland" and listening to music. shapoopi
American Wasteland Because its the name of one the best skate boarding games ever.  Anthony
American't I can't remember how I came up with this... I just randomly thought of it. Still, it would work well for a punk band (in my opinion) Hawky
Americans Stuck In Idle I think it's cool because to me it resembles how reality TV is going to the next level. Americans are just sitting on there bums watching TV. Plus it sounds cool Kristie
amirights Would sound like a 70s or 80s band. I think it sounds sweet. How'd I come up with it? I'm not that sure myself ;) DarkDan
Amish Avengers I had just bought the newly updated version of the game "Illuminati," which has a lot of new "group" cards (some of the cards are "Texas", "The Mafia", and "Gun Lobby". You are able to make up cards for the game, and we thought that the "Amish Avengers" would be a good card, with pictures of Amish people burning and looting... It seemed pretty funny at the time (maybe you had to be there...). Kelley
Amish Bikers When I started my job, we wound up working down near the New York - Pennsylvania border. I used to make jokes about the guys i went drinking with mouthing off in a bar and getting their a**es kicked by a bunch of Amish Bikers! John Petrino
The Amish Conspiracy My friend came up with it after a weird conversation about the possiblity of an Amish serial killer. Jake
Amish Mommy Driving through BFE Pennsylvania w/best friend....kept seeing Amish people w/buggies & were listening to Industrial. A natural morphing I think!  dulcinea78
Amish Rake Fight If the Amish had a dispute, how would they settle it? Mike
Amish Road Rage I saw this phrase in a joke-horoscope. I thought it was funny. No offense to the Amish, but the thought of road rage in horse-drawn buggies amuses me. Penny Pyro
Amish Techies Oxymoronic.Nuff said. FireTiger
Amish Vomit Cake Everyone can identify with vomit, you can make fun of the Amish as much as you want to on the Internet, and everyone loves cake. Alicia
Amish Vomit Cake The Amish are always funny as well as vomit and everyone loves cake donovan
Amnesia Well,I was thinking of a band name one day, I finally found one that I liked(which isn't often) and I forgot the name the next day.So then I said I have amnesia because I was joking around and I realized I liked that name so I stuck with it. Scott Watts
Amoebas On Acid There has to be some group that pays tribute to the smallest living thing on Earth, the one-celled parasite. This is cool because you have something that looks like a hallucination (at least under a microscope) hallucinating itself. science
Amoebe and the Anal Intruders I saw a very cheap chick (cool name for a band?), and thought of her to be the singer of a rock band. She was dumb like an amoebe, but we thought that she'd like to get intruded analy by 3 huge men. JP Barentsen
Amore Accidental Just a random thing, really. You could probably think of any word and put it in front of "accidental." It might sound good... SeaWeedle
AMP (Anti-Marker Possey) Like the ohters, its just naturally cool. It's an inside joke between me and some other people. I was in a class and the teacher only had markers to write with, and i dont like writing with the fat ones, so I said it was against my religion to use markers and they call me the Anti Marker. I dont know how to spell possey(is it right) AOL SN: SquireStrat2005 Chuck
Amp It Up It sounds cool. Chad
Ampersand Ampersand is the "&" character, much like the band "Asterisk" (*), but the "amp" could be highlighted to emphasize music amplification. Jack
AMPhetamine Brings into emphasis "amp" (short for amplifier, you know, like for a guitar) out of the name of the drug amphetamine, a notorious stimulant. Probably a decent name for a speedcore/death metal band. killer_roach
Amphibicus Every other name on this site is a prep/emo song & this isn't.( Aqua teen 4ever!) Master Shake09(Xbox live)
Ampified AxeWound I was sitting on my computer one night and I have an ampifier right next to me and I was also playing warcraft 3 and they have axes. Awesome Heavy Metal Band Name. Kurty
Amplexus The scientific term for when a male and a female frog, err, you know, make tadpoles. They'd sound, I dunno, maybe like Orgy or something. Olvan The Terrible
Amplified amp(amplifier) and fied sounds so loud and out there and.....um.....stuff all rights reserved by scotty milo
Amplified Overdrive Amplified Overdrive... just sound hectic, but does have some meaning like overdrive is a kind of amp sound like distortion and it comes out the amplifier hense the name amplified overdrive  Funky da freshest
Ampmeister It sounds like some German band. Songs include "My Bosch" and "Burgermeister", and don't forget Beetle Beep! Me
Amt Its actually a play on words because if you sound it out it sounds like "Amped" which is like anyone getting pumped up or whatever. But actually this is my bands name so dont take it, and actually i have no idea why i put it in here in the first place Pnathan
Amy Acronym Named after Amy Acker (Fred Burkle) of TV's Angel. Her acronym would be A.A.  angel
An Ace of Kidneys This was on VH1's Funniest Game Show Moments, where on a game of Wheel of Forune, a guy thought the phrase "An Ac_ of Ki_dn_ss" was An Ace of Kidneys. It was really an Act of Kindness. It was funny! Panic Pagoda
An Angel's Torn Halo thinking of an angel then pain in the eyes and the halop cracking *shrugs* EmoBoy
An Ellipsis Is... A cover band for The Academy Is... (an ellipsis is the name for the three dots) RevengeFromMars YouTube
An Honest Lie Everyone is being honest while lying. I was really bored at 2 am. I'm 'special'
Ana Gram I was reading some book by Lemony Snicket, when this came to me. SamVK
Anagram of This Thought it'd be really cool that if you ever got to release a greatest hits album, you could call it S**t Hits, as they are both anagrams of "this"! Just an idea :D DJ Simeone
Anagrams at my school theres these things called candy grams and i said "anagrams" and thought that would be a cool band name so i posted it.....xD Anagrams
Anal Bumcover An alternative to "An album cover" from an Saturday Night Live celebrity skit with Sean Connery. It would go well with a band that enjoyed a good snicker.  Charles In Charge
Anal Sextet I was thinking of a group of six anal-retentive musicians. What else? Tess O. Gosset
Anal Zoro My friend came up with it but his band mates didn't take to it too well.  Captain Zaxxon
analogous greed T9 on my phone mispelled a word and it looked like this, and it looked cool jeff
Anarchist i was thinking and doodling anarchy symbols and it came to mind and my band mates rejected it but with Paranoia it might come back into circulation. Ben
The Anarchists I was looking at my Anarchy Wrist Band, and Listenting to Anarchy in the UK by The Sex Pistols, and it just came to mind. Nick
Anarchy Agents Haven't you seen The Dark Knight? CreativeIndifference
Anarchy at the Four-Way-Stop I was at a four way stop where everyone wanted to ignore the rules and go at the same time. The opposite of lawful is anarchy!  Bklslp
Anarchy in paradise I just thought it sounds cool, and it would fit a punk/ska band pretty well. Besides....once it was in anarchy....would it still be paradise? If nothing else someone should write a song based on the phrase......but they better send me a copy before it hits the stores. nickbordendotcom
Anarcosis / Anarchosis I came up with looking through the dictionary; this one's a combination of "anarchy" and "narcosis" (a sort of "drowsy state"). I figure it works particularly well because they're both 'tough' words. (I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep the "H" or not, so I included both spellings) Jonathan S.
