Names -> Cool Band Names -> A, Page 4

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.

Submitted by:
Anarki Well me and my cousins wanted to make a band so we started thinking about "cool" words, one of our friends who is the drummer thought about the word Anarki!! We looked it up on the internet and found out that it means "TOTAL CHAOS!!!" We found it was cool and now that's what our band is called. Jordan
Anastasis It means 'resurrection' in Greek. jose Miguel
Anathematics "Anathema" (which can be pronounced "uh-NATH-uh-muh") is a really neat word I found in the dictionary. The first definition (the one I find most interesting) is "a cursed or disliked person or thing." I noticed the pronunciation of the middle two syllables the same as the FIRST two of "mathematics" and since I have a fetish for putting words together, I thought I'd combine the two. ...Perhaps, this could mean "The study of things cursed?" Jonathan S.
Anathemic Angels I like the name, because anathemic means cursed ones; and angels are peaceful. So they are complete opposites. me and only me
Anatine Pugilistics Pugilistics refers to boxing (the sport) and anatine is an obscure word meaning pertaining to waterfowl (including ducks). This name is therefore an obscure reference to a joke made concerning cavity nesting boxes erected to attract Wood Ducks to suitable habitat where their numbers are decreasing. Just as jokes are made like "I've seen a house fly" and "I've seen a board walk" (based on the fact that a kind of insect is called House Fly and a kind of walkway is called "board walk"), some, on seeing "duck boxes" so erected to attract Wood Ducks, will add to such quips "I've seen a duck box". D. Melody Dole, MD
Anatomical Existence Well a freind of mine said it in the middle of Science for no apparent reason. Totally random! Anyway, I thought I'd put it in. ally
AnAVriN NIRVANA BACKWARDS KURT RULES! we'll never forget Lithium
Ancient Evil My older sister gave me this band name because she studying ancient history at school and said it was evil. So Ancient Evil. I could of said Evil Ancient but sounds like a normal sentence, and rock isn't about that! Georgia123321
And Many More Every time you see a compilation CD advertised on television, they don't list every band/performer, they'll list the most popular, then say '...and many more!'. If people were dim enough, they'd see these ads and say "Wow, that 'And Many More' group is really popular! They're on practically EVERY album! .  EricTee
And More I once had a stupid friend who thought that at the end of those CD commercials where it said."It has Britney Spears, N'snyc, And More..." He actually thought 'And More' was a band (not that I like N'sync or Britney.) mas
And Now I think it would be cool for someone to announce you and be like "And Now" Kristi Brown
And Soon The Darkness It's just plaine AWESOME for a band name that is also a prepositional phrase J
And Then If you've seen "dude where's my car," you just know kATiA
and3 This is a trendier version of a band name mentioned in the book The Commitments. One of the character's ex-band's had the very trendy (for the late-eighties) band name called "And And! And!" Martin
Androgyny My friend and I needed a name for our band-in-the-making. So we thought of words we liked, and the Garbage song popped into both of our heads. gabriel
Androids Who Drink Milk My uncle came up with this after watching ALIEN or ALIENS. Paul
Andy Is A Smurf One of our mates Anders was kinda drunk and screamed "I am the almighty smurf!" Anders dahl
Andy Richter Scale It's a combination of the Richter scale used to measure earthquakes and ex-sitcom star and Conan O'Brien's sidekick Andy Richter. JeReMy
Anemic FudPuckers My friend is anemic and while escorting her to the nurse's office yesterday I realized she was wearing one of those "Fud Pucker" t-shirts so it gave me an idea for a cool band name. Mike Zaidi
Anemo Anti-Emo. Come on, no one likes emo. Beanz
Angel 666 its a mixture of the devil and angel. theres nothing wrong with good and evil combined [Ed's note: In Michael's opinion.] michael bruce
Angel Ashes I mean what's more cool than the ashes of an angel? I came up with it by adapting the name of a local band, From These Ashes.  Brady
Angel of Death When you picture this name in your mind you get this...vision of how it might look in life. While I was drawing in math class i drew this female that was dressed like a goth, and added wings with sparkles. When I was done it looked like a Gothic Playboy of some mans dream. Kendra
Angel Retentive Partly suggests a Christian band, partly more irreverent. So take your pick! Lori Tirol
Angel Wings  Damian
Angel With The Scabbed Wings  This song is by Marilyn Manson off of his "Antichrist Superstar" album and I always thought it was the best song. Just the lyrics, the vocals and the mix of the music make it the best song on that album.  Sin D. 69
Angelic Demons One day when I was thinking of a name for our band, I was trying to think of something that had Hell or something in it. But then, Heaven just popped in my head and I started thinking about a war between Angels and Demons. Then I combined them and 'Angelic Demons' is how it turned out. Luky 2000
The Angelic Devils Everyone is an angel and devil. Whether it's at the same time or different times. Depending on your mood. True ??? EcclecticWitch
Angelic Sinners Its cool cause it just is. We just thought of it. Jeremy and Payge
Angels From Hell I just now thought of it because I saw a bunch that had to deal with Angels. Than I thought of Angel Of Death from Slayer. So I said "hey, Angels from hell" Alandra
Angels In Anoraks I was at a festival and it was raining and this really goregous person walked by in an anorak and 'Voila!' He was an 'Angel in an Aanorak!'  Hazzy
Angels Lacking Halos Any type of band who doesn't want to be seen as friendly. Mike J
Angels Without Wings I was playing Guitar Hero III and I was halfway through Cherub Rock by the Smashing Pumpkins. I was listening to the lyrics and I heard something like "beware the angels without wings" and I thought it would be coolio. The Stupid Genius
Angie's Fist I saw an ad for Angie's List on The Weather Channel, and I was like "How could this be cooler?" (Get it, Cooler,Weather?)  Phillip "Screw" Driver
Anglemouth Kinda inspired by the pill-popping antics of Pac-Man Ex-Patient
Angostura Bitters It's the name of a bitter tonic. I found it in the dictionary and it sounded like a great band name.  Emily
Angry Hobbits I saw it on a bathroom wall in the comic shop I work in, "Beware the Angry Hobbits" was the full phrase. Nazomi Jade
Angry Sex with Strangers Came up one night in the course of a long conversation with friends that just got stranger and stranger. llwydnos
The Angry Youth It's so cool because it's derived from the attidtude of today's adolescent plus it sounds awesome. I thought it up while playing with a camcorder with my friends and we made a stupid video called "Angry Youth!" and one of my friends was looking for a band name so I gave him that and he LOVED IT! I just think it rocks. Alastair McTavish
Anguish Without Life Sounds cool ... anguish means Great deal of mental or physical pain. so its liek saying Pain without LIFE. ya kno...? Can..
Angus and the Chewbaccas Angus is a cool name and I can make this really cool noise that sounds like Chewie from 'Star Wars'. cap'n stinky
The Anguses Even its a bit of a boring name but it can be interesting when the whole band is on school uniform. It was named after Angus Young of AC/DC he's always in school uniform. I'm a big fan of AC/DC and I reckon the name Angus suit's to the school uniform, I reckon its a good idea is to go on stage with your school uniform and your band the Anguses KeZa
Animals In Situations well the band was trying to think of a name when one of my friends(cody) comes in one day and says ''i got it! Animals in Situations!!'' he said he was watching animal planet when the guy says ''this animal seems to be in a tough situation'' or something like that and cody just came up with it. he's the drummer and i'm the bass player Rob
Anime Dolphins Anime and dolphins are two of the coolest things in the world, so I just combined the two. Da Phoenix
Anime Pornstar This is a name of a font that is on my PC. I have no idea how the creators arrived at it (the font itself is nowhere near of any redolence). Nonetheless, I downloaded it mainly because of the name. It just exudes suaveness without question. It conjures images of an electro-punk outfit in a dark arena. Devil Jones
Animosity How we came up with it is that everybody in (the band) acts like a animal. christian
Ann & Sprinkls A twist on the legendary porno actress 'Annie Sprinkle'. Roberto
Anne and the Orexians This all-female band clearly needs to eat more. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Anne Frank On Crank My friend Adam has a band with this name, they're pretty popular around Colorado. Humpagoalie
Annette Zero Sounds like a woman it would be best to avoid dating. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Annex My band was looking for a name on our first practice. We were went on a online dictionary and were looking when we saw "Annex". This meant to take over or to win (or a secret hiding place). ajguitar
Annie's Boobs From the NBC comedy "Community". Even if the show is cancelled next year, Annie's Boobs will live on. (Editor's note: Six seasons and a movie!) TV
The Annihilators If this isn't a band already it should be. They'd just be a fun rocking little party band. With catchy music and fun lyrics. Edward
Annoying Republicans Surprisingly, my dad came up with this. I guess he's fed up with W. Mazotti Jordan
The Anoas A good obscure animal name for a band. Actual Anos are the smallest of thoroughly cattle-like animals. There are two species of anoas, both native to Indonesia. D. Melody Dole, MD
The Anomalies It's a name which my friend ultimately rejected for her band, but I still think rocks, cos an anomalie is that thing on a graph where one point is completely out of line from the rest - a freak value. So it would be really good for a rock band who are different and new. The freak values isn't a bad name either, is it?! Bec Dee
Anonymous Johnson This is cool on two fronts. First, the entire band is unknown. Secondly, Johnson, also a common surname, is slang for penis.  old
The Anonymous Party Sounds cool and fricking suspicious.  harrison
Anonymous Response I forgot how, but it's cool cause it it's a response that you don't know where it came from. Dochie
Anorexic Catfish Because ..... umm..... well, maybe it sucks... red

Another Disease Theory A buddy of mine came up with that, when we were in psych. class making up hardcore band names. and what, with the trend of these "feeling, emotional" bands lafemmedigital
Another Fine Mess A tribute to the 20s-30s comedy team of Laurel and Hardy. Oliver Hardy (the large one) would always exclaim to his buddy Stan Laurel (the skinny one) "Well there's another fine mess you've gotten us into." whenever Stan screwed up. I'm thinking a weird parody song duo.  oldtimer
Another Heartbreak I go this name from my friend who gets dumped a lot and can't keep a relationship for a week. It would make a great emo band name. res_dude
Another Love Band Well, alot of bands talk about love non-stop in their songs. So I got the idea like "Not Another Teen Movie", but with another love band. Jamie
Answer42 its the answer to life, the universe and everything in Douglas Adams "the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy".......or you could use "A42" bigpapa
Answering 12 This was a working title of a song by Genesis. It seems like a good name. Richard
Anta Dawd A friend tells me how his family used to make a big deal of reporting that he said "Anta Dawd" as a child, allegedly the nearest he could come at the time to saying "Santa Claus". Years later the neighbors across the street put up a figure of Santa Claus on their front door. His family thought that figure to be a crude and reaching attempt to depict Santa Claus. So they would say of it, "That's Anta Dawd". Rergina Haniger
Anthology this name is cool because it sounds like like an 80's metal band, i picked it up while watching WWE and i would really want to name my band ANTHOLOGY Mario
The Anthrax Monsters This was an old halloween costume. But for some reason, no one finds it funny anymore. Kurashii
Anthropomorphic Humans A fancy way of saying "humanlike humans" It sounds cool! Panic Pagoda
Anti Grace during my high school year, there's this girl name grace. My friend hooked up with her but then they broke up. My friend didn't know how to take that break up. It just happened that his parents are moving in to another city. He didn't go. He kind a ranaway. He was still confuse about what happened between him and grace. Why he stayed here, he met us. The band. If it wasn't for this b****, this band wouldn't exist. ritzie yap
Anti-Clone Some girls that I dont get along with showed up at school wearing shirts that said "Clone". So the next day, I made a shirt that said "Anti-Clone". Who knew passive agressive fashion-fights could lead to cool band names!? that one chick
Anti-Corporate Philosophy I saw 'AVON supports Corporate Philosophy' on the side of a box we carried our groceries in a while ago. I figured anything Avon supported had to be bunk so I added my favorite prefix. 'Tis awesome, I believe. Anastasia Jade
Anti-Gone I was in a play, and my friend John's line was "It's like an 'anti-done'". It sounded more like 'Anti-GONE' Right? cool! Mike Hunt

Anti-Platinum Good for a underground band. Who doesn't want to go Platinum? NHOIpunk19
The Anti-Rap Mafia It's just cool cause I had an obsession with the word mafia one day, and I dislike rap... and my friend wanted to know what to name her band... so it just came out. Jane Lain
The Anti-Social Socialites It is cool because it's contradictory, and when people shorten our name, it spells A.S.S. Lisha
Anti-Trend I was just putting words together to make a name. and came up with this zodiaxj
The Antibodies With all the hype on perfect bodies pushed on TV, this would be a great punk band name for some guys that were slightly overweight, and had that used car look to them... I came up with this in our currently ongoing quest to find a band name for ourselves. Cool Ray Gun
AntiBoss This was the name of our school rock band, and I think it was pretty darn cool. Tezza
Anticipating Apolcalypse I was in a really crappy mood when I came up with this. I was all "Man I want the world to end". Then I wrote this down and I thought it sounded really cool. Lanaia
Anticruses is counds like anti-christ, or reminds me of it, but in fact it's the proper terminology for the off beat in music..my bass player's music teacher mom suggested this name for our still unnamed band... magic happy
The Antidote A name synonymous with The Cure. Paul Bear
The Antisocial Club It's a play on social club. Would be a great name for any rock band. Edward

Any Key Homer Simpson: "To continue, press any key. WHERE'S THE ANY KEY?" Okay, has ANYONE found this elusive button yet? something clever

Anybody's Guess It's from "Weird Al" Yankovic's song "The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota". (What was he trying to prove?/Who was he trying to impress?/How did he build it? Why did he do it/is anybody's guess.) Brian Kelly
Anyone-Seen-My-Space-Bar? A few months ago I broke one the space bar off my old keyboard, accidentily, then somehow I lost it. I had to use hyphens until I had time to get a new one. AntitheticMuffin
