Names -> Cool Band Names -> A, Page 6

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:
Assistant Pee Wiper I was with my friend at Bush Gardens, waiting in line for a rollercoaster one time, and we watched as the row of cars came in. Apparently, someone had been so scared, they peed in their seat. Well, this guy comes out, with a towel and a spray bottle, and wipes the pee off. He so named him the "Assistant Pee Wiper" because he was to young to be top. Becca
Assless Chaps and Underwear I had a random thought about if assless chaps would be less disturbing if the wearer was wearing underwear and you can see the underwear. JeReMy
Assorted Nuts well i like eating nuts but assorted nuts are the worst though cause you never know what you'll get and most of the time what you get sucks. So if you were goin to see a band called assorted nuts they would probably suck. But now and then you would get a great solo. mr.jimmy
Astaroth Astaroth is a god that watches over hell but is also the god of delightment. Blake Allen
Asteroid Flaming Death Crater I just thought it up a second ago. I think this would be a great death metal band name, as I'm told that a giant asteroid's coming to hit us soon anyways so u could use it now and look like a genius in a few years... Ben Singer
The Asthmatics For those of us who are always fighting for air. Ohhhhhhhh, Fighting For Air, that's another good one. cheetah m
Astral Frog my music teacher was explaining how to think of band names, and told us that if we did it wrong, we'd end up "with something stupid like astral frog". so we used that, just to piss him off. but we split up :( Laura
Astro Flame I just thought of space and fire. I just like mixing words together. Sam
AstroCarpet Cuz the carpet in my band room. Looks like the sky with stars. Phillipe
Astrocatastrophe I used to use this as a screen name, and people seem to like it. Sounds like a pop-punk band that sings words you can understand about wreaking havoc on the planet's environment. SnackCracker
Astroglider Named after the sexual lubricant product called "Astroglide" Johnny D
Asylum 'Em You repeat the last syllable, and it sends the message to throw them in the asylum. Chris
At Night Fall To me it means when night comes. But when night comes, that's when the most killer parties happen. megan
Ataraxia According to Webster's New World Dictionary, it means: "calmness of the mind and emotions; tranquility." But it still sounds cool for a band. Or "Ataractic" (a tranquilizing drug). Medication-High Jesteress Among Royalty
AtaXia Callusive I was reading a biology book at library,when I found the word 'Ataxia' that stands for a neuron inability to keep the body's balance. And 'Callusive',well I heard this from Box Car Racer's song. See guys,science is not relly boring after all. RiNa
Athaliah put to Death I read it in the bible and thought it sounded cool Hickey
The Atheist Agnostics A good name for the most un-religious band in the history of rock! Dan Abnormal
Atheist For Pope I'm an atheist, but I also began my own "Ratzinger for Pope" movement. I thought something hypocritical like this would be cool. Yeah, it sounded cool to me. Enty the Magnificent
Athena Its named after a greek goddess. who wouldn't want to be a greek GODDESS? Its pretty trippy. Maybe if it like had a bit of a techno rock to it. It'd be hip to the dip! rockergurl
Athenae You can mess around with the spelling, but basically it's pronounced 'af-en-eye'. I was at my friend's house, and we were thinking about band names. I just looked around for some inspiration and saw this little Olympics teddy bear propped up against her wall. It was the Athens year...and it just came to me. Xtinangel
Athens ive been reading the ancient greek myths and realized that all the names of the ancient greek places sound cool i.e. thrace, ithaca, crete, etc. ata
Athorath Morning That ith wath happenth when you wake upth in the morning with a thor ath after thipping pina coladath all nite and pathing out drunk at a gay party. badboybear
Atlanta Graffitti It's cool because my band lives about an hour south of Atlanta where there is a lot of graffitti. Spence

Atomic God A few of my friends and me had been wanting to start a band and we were sitting around one day and came up with a cool christian band name! Blake
Atomic Jagger The Rolling Stones get contaminated by radiation and become mutants? RevengeFromMars YouTube
Atomic Lip Gloss A neat sounding example of one of those band names that doesn't really mean anything (apparently random words or phrases strung together) but conjures mysterious imagery, Marlene L. Ram
Atomic Marshmallow A long time ago this is what my little brother and some friends called themselves for a couple days, putting on wigs and miming Alice Cooper songs for the amusement of their little friends. Good psychedelic name! Ray Kiraruta
atomic mullet my junior year in high school i had this one teacher who had a mullet and i was thinking about her mullet during history class one day while my teacher was talking about the first atomic bomb. it was then that i noticed that the shape of her mullet was like an atomic bomb's explosion. and besides that, who doesnt like a good mullet? noimnotretarded
Atomic Nuclear Pizza Of Doom When I was in junior high economics, one of the in-class assignments was to make a pizza. I accidentally used a tablespoon of basil instead of a teaspoon (which one's smaller?), making my pizza VERY spicy. So this is what I called it. IHaveNoBrain
Atomic Nuclear Sporks Sporks with the power to create three-eyed fish O_o Interesting.... Chiriko-chan
Atomic Tundra In 7th grade, a couple of my guy friends were going to start a band. I figured I was pretty involved, since I had written every song they wanted to play. In Math one day, I got bored, so I started thinking of ANYTHING I could for a band name. One of our vocab words in Science was tundra, and I just thought that was a cool word. Especailly if it was atomic, so it could like explode, at any second. classiccowgirl
Atomic Twister There was this movie on TV, you see... IHaveNoBrain
Atomistic Hope It implies a belief in the little pieces everything is made of... the atoms. Neoki

Atrocities Usually when my friends and I are shocked by something, we just yell out *Gasp and Atrocities*. We all thought someday we may use atrocities as our own band name. It also means appalling behavior, which is what we depict everyday! RioT
Atta to End me and my friends came up with this. Atta to En means eight to one in german or some language, so we changed it to Atta to End so it'd, I dunno, have end in it. So it kinda means eight to one. A single would be "we are outnumbered" Boogie
Attack of the Attackers Redundancy is far too overlooked nowadays, and anyway this is one band name that you can't say doesn't make sense. Horseradish of the North
Attack of the Nature Droid Duck Pirates It makes no sense at all. Chazm
Attack of the Pink Socks My friend had a nightmare in which she was being attacked by pink socks. Now she's seriously afraid of pink socks. Plus anthing called attack of... and then something harmless just craks me up. 300 Bernard St. Girl

ATTENTION! It's an inside joke with me and my friend,Alsy. It was at Honor Chorus. She randomly yelled "ATTENTION!", and this guy, in a pink-sparkley vest and huge pink glasses from the Jazzberries came popping out of the curtain in the back. We couldn't stop laughing XD. RockerGirl
Attic This is a cool name coz me and my band have band practice in my friend's attic. chris
Attic Noise My mom alwayz calls the type of music I listen 2 "attic noise" because she thinks there is no beat to it and itz kinda creepy. I usually just reply, "no mom this iz (name of band)."

Atticus The good guy from To Kill a Mockingbird. KJ
Attitude Girls My attitude's bossy. (we took this name) Beth
Attractive When Drunk My mate asked me to describe his step-sister in 3 words! Cool name for any band! Sim
Atypical Day Obviously, a play on the phrase, "A typical day." It works nicely since "atypical" is a slightly stronger way of saying something is strange, so an "atypical day" would be something to talk about indeed. Jonathan S.

Audiocrime A combination between Audioslave (which is good but no way near as good as R.A.T.M) and my friend's fathers' band, Radiocrime. Cool. Nathan da legend

Audiomatic This stuck in my head when a person with a speech impairment was trying to tell me about his car. John
AudioVisual Stimulation I once had a science teacher in high school named Mr. Wagner who, whenever we were about to watch a film, would say, "We're going to have some audiovisual stimulation today." We always used to make fun of it once we were out of class...and after all, a concert IS audiovisual stimulation, so it kinda makes sense! Carla Bisagni

Auraphace My friends and I were playing around with some techie stuff while completely drunk, just to see how much damage we could do.

AutoAsphyxiation More hilarious than cool. If you don't know what it means, look it up. Blurple
Autokara It's short for "Automaattinen Karannut", which means "automatic runaway" in Finnish. I had always liked the sound of Automatic Runaway for a band name, so I translated it into Finnish and came up with Automaattinen Karannut. But then it hit me that nobody could spell it, much less say it...so I shortened it to Autokara. Selo

The Automatic Granny Ninjas When my grandmother slaped me and knocked me over....it kinda happened automaticly, so i just thought this up. David *_*

automatic weapons on the dance floor well a friend and I were eating breakfast at a hotel sports bar it was totally empty except for us and on ths 12 inch tv was this really cheesy 80's movie where one minute they're in this back room that looks all scary and stuff then the next they're being shot at out on a dance floor and my mom walked in and said 'woah automatic weapons on the dance floor' and I thought it would make a cool band name although now that I think about it its alot like panic at the disco Rosie-o
Automaton Well, when my band was looking for a name, our guitarist came up with this name, but in the end we didn't use it. I reckon it sounds pretty cool and well, that's just it. It sounds cool. No Hero

Autumn Almanac I was listening to a song by the Kinks that had a very heavy Beatles influence on it. I automatically thought to myself, that it would be not only a cool name for a band, but perhaps also give the Kinks a renewed following. :) Hear that Ray? Slr1971
Autumn Frost Black/doom metal from Finland in the vein of Opeth, My Dying Bride and Moonspell. Up in Finland it can get really cold up there and the name sounds like it should be a band with that type of sound. okayokay
Autumn's Bloom I don't really remember how I came up with this. My friend and I were thinking about cool band names. I thought Autumn's Bloom sounded really cool, because nothing blooms in autumn. logan
