Names -> Cool Band Names -> B, Page 1

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.

Bad Reputation Well, Joan Jett is awesome. I was playing rock band 2 and that song came up.  Anna
Bad Taste We think its a realy mad name for a band. I heard it on the radio when the anouncer was complaining about some actors bad taste in clothes, and I thought it was awsome, so does the band. matt
Bad Year This was inspired by one of the little messages on the cover of Green Day's "Dookie". Oh and for the person who thought Green Day was a stupid band (which it is in punk) because they didn't know what a green day looked like. Well the name Green Day is about the lead vocalist getting high. CED
BADEAR Not good for a lead singer who is tone deaf. But what a great band name. sounds like bad hearing. Goes with Badfinger Willy

Baglady Romeos My friend Walter had this thing for really old ladies. Oedipus complex for sure. He liked them so old we figured by the time he was 40 we would know he was looking to score one of his sweeties if we saw him headed to the graveyard with a shovel and a six-pack. badboybear
Bahamut It's the name of a kick-a** dragon from the "Final Fantasy" games, and also the name of some weird whale thing from Japanese kids stories, kinda like Leviathan. :p k.m
The Bait Ovens from Beethoven(pronounced baytoven) Winter Pepper

The Balancines It means 'The Rockers' in spanish. I thought it would be cool to have a name in another language...very mysterious, don't ya think? On the other hand, people might think you are a spanish band... CL
Baldman It's kind of a spoof off of Afroman. At my school one of the science teachers, who is bald gets high off of whiteboard markers during class, and we're all like, "if only because i got high was by baldman, it could be his theme song" Superblonde
Baldwin Hall  It's named after a part of my school. I think it has sort of a cool name for a band. It's a little random but I'd listen to the band. Sarah Batbold
Ballerino You know the scene in 'Mystery Men' where they are interviewing superheros? You remember 'Ballerina Man'? I was talking with my friend Eve about it and we decided that since he was a guy he really should'nt be called a ballerina, but rather 'Ballerino'. After thinking about that incident I am now convinced it sounds like a name of a Italian techno-rock type band. Gir Beeblebrox
Ballistic Sirloin I was watching "Myth Busters" and they were dispelling the myth of the Ballistic Ice bullet. One of their experiments was a bullet made of hamburger. I was thinking about this and said "Meat Bullet" as a penile pseudonym. Then me and another guy started making plays on that and the funniest one was this. I said, that would make a cool band name. Zymurgy
Balloon Baboon My favourite word is balloon and the first thing that came into my head was baboon because it rhymed with balloon. It is cool because it has got two random words put together! Camilla
The Balms I was just thinking of something out of the ordinary and came up with this. (could also be "Lip Bomb") Mr. B.
Balthasar One of the people in the Bible but would be a good name for a black metal band. Grim Reaper
BAMF! A crazy name that exactly describes those in the band. It also sounds cool. BAMF! Freddy
The Banana Hammocks The band would wear letter sweaters and sports gear- you know, like 'jocks'... get it?! Cracking myself up here...  sk8rdad
Bananabuzzkill It's cool cause my friend was thinking of band names and he's like banana, kill, buzz--bananabuzzkill! [Ed.'s note: This was actually a stunt on the MTV Jacka** predecessor "Buzzkill", where the three cads in the van hold fake auditions where young people are asked to dress as bananas.]  linelock
Bananakin Skywalker Talking about Star Wars Characters if they were food instead of people. Stemmed from Pizza the Hut from Spaceballs. Whip D Whip
Band Best known for "Song" (Ed:Hopefully, they won't get mistaken for The Band. A lot of requests for "The Weight" then.) Chazm
Band Band Band! It's so underrated that it's profoundly perfect. And just cool.  Patty Joplin-Paige
Band Camp Ever watch American Pie "And there was this one time, at band camp.." kgirl
The Band Formerly Known As The Last Name We Used My friend's dad has a band and they are constantly changing their name. So whenever someone asks, she just says they don't have one, 'cause they're always changing it. So, one time, I said they ought to put an end to it and just call themselves "The Band Formerly Known as the Last Name We used." She liked it. I haven't pitched it to her dad yet, though.  300 Bernard St. Girl
The Band Geeks Come on, I mean who doesn't want to be a band geek?! You know the saying "Geeks get all the girls." WELL???? josh

Band of Mormon Boys My brother and his friends came up with it because they wanted a band name that described them and it can be shortened to BOMB. Jesscia
The Band Otherwise Known As... I thought it sounded really funny and would be good for a parody band. G

The Band That Doesn't Wanna Play Go up on stage when it's time for you guys to play, have your intro like this: "We are The Band That Doesn't Wanna Play"... Wilhelm Fink
The Band Who Shot Liberty Valence [Ed.'s note: A play on the movie "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" and also the Gene Pitney/James Taylor song. Sorry Bob, but your description didn't make any sense.] bob
Band Who So Vauntingly Swore It's a line in the little-known third verse of "The Star-spangled Banner" (Third verse when a total of four are included). A (musical) band by that name would shift the meaning of "band" to musical group. Regina Haniger
Band With No Talent Truth in advertising. Got it from Green Jelly's song "Three Little Pigs" where the singer says, "And the moral...is that a band with no talent can easily amuse idiots with a stupid puppet show". "Stupid Puppet Show" can also be a band name.  Indy
The Band With The Hot Singer  Why do you think girls go to see bands? Because of the music? Billy Kongo
Banda Nachos its cool cuz nachos rool!! I was watchin the mexican music channel, and one band was banda machos. banda nachos was the 1st thing i thought of. Mandie B.

Bandersnatch It's from the poem Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll (Alice in Wonderland), the line goes: "Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!" Think it is an exellent band name; has the word "band" in it (obviously) and "snatch" which is catchy. Marie
The Bandies I saw a band called " The Bandits". My band loves putting "ies" after everything. kayla
Bandit I think this is cool cos its like using the word BAND as a verb, as in just DO it, like Nike, just BAND it. and Also as BANDIT like a robber doh  seran
The Banditones Somehow any band with this name would sound like Rage Against the Machine, and that would be OK. RevengeFromMars YouTube

Bane Bane means absolute chaos and destruction. That's cool. 123
Bang Band Bang I just think it sounds cool! Optimus Lime
