Names -> Cool Band Names -> A, Page 7

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.

Autopsy Room 6 Just read it, I mean come on it just sounds awesome. It's a Stephen King short story, I just changed the 4 to a 6. beat_like_a_dog
Autosave A progress-saving setting in Guitar Hero III.(it means the game saves on its own) I like it because it works as a pun of the existing band Audioslave. Jonathan S.
Autotelic belief that a work of art is an end in itself or its own justification  DB
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
Auxillary Clinton Sounds like a political electronica band, "Main Clinton showing signs of pulmonary troubles, switching to Auxillary Clinton." Nicholas
Auxillary Drain Me and my friends found a sign by this pipe and it said Auxillary drain on it. so we took it. then, we looked again and thought to ourselves. We should make a band and call it that. Bernie
Avalon I came across this word in one of my grandfathers books. Avalon is the name of an island paradise in the western seas to which King Arthur went at his death. Another Arthurian Legend steve
Avatar Avatar is hindi for Messiah or god-man so it could be a good religious bans but to me it sounds pretty gothic HiddenGenius
Avengalism he religion of revenge. I just made it up when someone said "I beleive in revenge because peave takes too long" Amanda
Aversion If you like to come up with cover songs, this is the name for you. cover5
Avion I had a English assignment where I had to interview people. I wanted to interview an up and coming band. jess
The Avon Ladies Saluting the lovely women of Avon, Indiana....Uh, what did you think I named it after? Indy
Aware Of Vacuity i was re-reading my copy of "Monkey" (A Chinese Pilgrim's Progress) & thought it would make a cool band name. The name is a reference to the hero's (A living Stone Monkey ) Religious name. It was made into a .T.V Series by NHK in the late 70's & The english dubbed version was CULT Viewing in the U.K at the time. "The Nature of Monkey Was Irrepressable !) Grimley Fieendish
Aweful Awful Um, they don't yell "Author, Author" they yell ENCORE! ENCORE! (As in play it again) DUUUUUHHHHH!!! [Ed.'s note: Ah contrare, mon frere. This use this as an alternative to "Encore, encore" in the 40s and 50s. Don't you watch Warner Brothers cartoons (Bugs Bunny in particular.)? Bob
Aweird My dad remarked once that Sadie, one of our two dogs, is very aware. I misheard him and said to Sadie, "Yes, you're a weird dog." When he corrected me, I laughed and said that she's aware AND weird, and then he jokingly declared, "Aweird!" Da Phoenix
The Awesome band & Alex This was originally the name of our band because it's true! We are awesome! (apart from Alex) I thought of it when I was thinking for the name of our cycling team (fast kids & Courtney) Optimus Lime
Awesome Blue Blue is awesome! Security code
Awesome Possum I just say it sometimes. I refuse to use ordinary slang that everyone in the world copies from everyone else and then some.  waverly
The Awesomeness Of Plastic And Robots It's in Guitar Hero Rocks The 80's. G
Awful Awful A play on the popular cheer "Author Author", which is exclaimed by an enthusiastic audience after plays or operas (I don't know why). People seeing this band might yell the name of this weird alternative group, while others who find the band excellent would be very confused. hardrock
Awkward At First I think it sounds cool. And being gay, it kind of suits me. Sum Guy
Awkward Last Words Yeah, it's the name of an Armor For Sleep song, but lots of great bands have songs for titles. This one sounds really cool anyways. Tinsley Ward
AWOL away without leave...it's just a kickass military thing gatorboymike
AX-15 It's the transmission in my dad's truck. (It's made by Aisin-Warner, the 5-speed manual transmission on six-cylinder Jeep Cherokees and Wranglers. It's actually quite good.) Joe Montmatre
AxChik My friend and I were just brainstorming cool band names, and this came up. A month earlier my friend had chopped my finger off with an ax. Typo-07
Axewound Awsome heavy metal name. I was in a car crash and I got this huge gash down my thigh. It looked like I'd been done with an axe, and it just popped into my head! Awesome! TiMoFy!
Axiom It means that a law which is accepted by everyone. Nikhil
Axis Of Evil Allright, it's a little to heavy-metal for most bands out there, but it does have it's possibilities. Even though GWB (The C-I-C, not the bridge to NJ) stopped using the term, it still comes up on the news channels quite often. For those with a non-metal band you can tweek the axis theme as follows: Axis of Steeples (For Fundie Rock) or Axis of TVo (For Techno-bands) etc.  John Buck
Axle Tramps This female punk band is really into cars, apparently. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Az Iff There was a band called Az Yet. This is my version. crazydon
Azalea Nyx It's kinda like the band Rascal Flatts. This is for an all girl band or just a girl who is solo. it is a mix of the Azalea Flower and the night goddess Nyx. BunnyKiller
Azul Tequila Ive always liked tequila, and as a friend and I were getting wasted one day, we ran out of tequila and my bassist drank Windex by accident. So there came the name of our band Azul means blue. Azul Tequila Steve Dominguez
