Names -> Cool Band Names -> B, Page 2

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:
Banned It's a play on words, you see!! Because they're a BAND. Would be good for an offensive punk band Mz
Banned Name It's a pun on "band name" JeReMy
Baptism By Fire This is my personal band's name, It's cool because "Baptism By Fire" is a marines term. It means it's their first week in active duty.  Teh Vocalist/BT
Bar Of Soap Why not create a band named after this paticular toiletry? Hawk
Barbadensis It was the ingredient on the back of a shampoo bottle. I plan on calling my first album "Aloe Vera". :) Abi
Barbara Darling Brigade Named after the man-hating go-go dancer/actress Barbara Darling played by Elizabeth Hartman in the 1966 Francis Ford Coppola movie "You're a Big Boy Now." The perfect name for a riot grrrl band. The Skuz
Barbed Hearts I was at a club, and on the wall was a painting of a heart with barbed wire on it. So I drew it, and my friend said we could make the band name the Barbed Hearts. billy
Barbed Wire Barbies Well, I personnally would NEVER has it as a band name, but it rings a certain bell. Maybe it could be used for a girl band that want to look like, I dunno, less "pretty-girl". Yep. Tessa
Barbed Wire Heart It's cool cuz it symbolizes how people feel when they are heart broken Joseph Bailey
Barbed-Wire Jockstrap One day, my dad was making fun of all the heavy metal band names and just blurted this one out. Ever since, I've passed it along because it's so funny, although it seems like it would be painful. Perfect metal band name! toolman
BarbedWireHearts  BARBEDWIREHEARTS
The Barbie Reputation think its good for an all girl band because of the stereotypical barbie-slut theory Leanne
Barbie Ruined My Life This is the name of my sister and her friend's band. They were looking through newspaper clipping and found a newpaper article titled "Barbie Ruined My Life!" The rest, as they say, is history.  Clams Have Feelings Too
Barcode I've always liked this word because it could describe anything if you think about it, since barcodes are used in the stores like that. In New York there was a building with a sign that said "BARCODE" It was an awesome sign, by the way. Jessie
Bare Crosses A Christian rock band with perverted hidden agendas...  FireTiger
Bare Midriff I just kinda like it... at my school, if you wore a shirt above your belly button they would be like " Bare midriff" and give you a big shirt to wear over it halito
Barf Bag Maggots Just like 'Snot Waffle', it's from a newspaper comic. And once again, if you want to be really disgusting... IHaveNoBrain
The Barking Mops Okay so this one time at Animal Control there was this little bitty dog. I asked what is was and the person in control said it was a Pomeranian. I said it looked more like a barking mop to me and I thought that would make a cool band name. IHaveNoBrain
Barley Boys I always thought it would be so awesome if there was an Irish metal band. The lead guitar riffs would sound like folk songs played on the fiddle and the guitarist would do the jig at the same time. That would be freaking sweet. Irish music is awesome. It would sound beautiful on guitar!!! I might just learn how to play traditional Irish folk dance songs on guitar.lol Victor V
Barmaid's Shoal Tire Sounds like a neat name; I don't know why. I first heard it when my cousin was trying to sing a song on her father's Irish Christmas record. Some of the songs were in Gaelic and in one she was trying to sing the closest sounding English words. The only words I remember hearing her sing for that song were "Barmaid's Shoal Tire" Heidi Jones
Barn Raising With the Amish Since having a band is something I don't picture the Amish doing on account of their conservative lifestyle, I thought it would be cool to name a band after them.  Susan
Barnes and Not So Noble My Dad works at the Princeton U Store and we were talking about the competition between the two stores and then I said, "I guess Barnes isn't so noble".  RachH
The Barneys The band dressed up in purple suits, singing 'Do you want to be my friend'? Jim
Baron von Salivate and the Vague Nutrition I'm big on The Beatles. From what I've heard the album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was The Beatles poking fun at bands with long names, so I was trying to come up with my own, but to no avail. Finally, I was listening to the radio and talking outloud to myself and I stumbled on my words several times. The first time "Baron von Salivate" came out, and I chuckled. Next "Vague Nutrition" spouted out, and I put the two together. Prettz
Barrack Obama It's a relatively common misspelling of Barack Obama JeReMy
basement butt monkeys we were playing one night and some guy that we didnt know came up to us and said we look like a bunch of monkeys on stage. well we practice i an basement of a friends place so we just put it together,basically just to get a laugh outta people,we don't use it in public just at home in the basement  robbie chisholm
Basement Circus Just came up with it while reading 'Puddle Of Mudd' lyrics. Sounds punkish. Junior
The Basement Rats The collective name for certain minor cast members in a webcomic I read; http://missmab.com/Cast/rats.php . I just thought the name would work from the moment I first heard it. Sofox
Basement Siren Song All my instruments and stuff are in the basement. When me & my friends Skiv work to play, we say we're answering the basement siren song. Mr Big
Bashaka Meniakus This was my bands original name. It would work well as a Trip Rock band name. It didn't work to well for our Punk/Hardcore band. SavageEntity
basically nothing im starting a band an a guy ask me what was it called and i didnt have a name so i said, 'basically nothing"...i was think about it but then i decided not to use it that guy
The Basket Cases I was sittin' around listenin' to "Basket Case" by Green Day one day and I thought, "'The Basket Cases' would be a cool name for a Green Day tribute band" Joey Ramone
Bass Ackwards A spoonerism of the phrase "ass backwards", commonly used in situations in which swearing is strongly discouraged. JeReMy
Bassick Dumba** i dunno really, i just thought of much i am of a dumba** and i put bassick , bc that is the cool/loser way to spell basic Angela Dumbass
Bastard Toadflax It comes from the name of a wildflower. Since flower names for people (and sometimes bands) are popular, here's a suggestion for a different flower name that isn't among the usual flower names, such as Rose, Daisy, Violet, Lily, or Iris, etc. D. Melody Dole, MD
Bastards on Wheels This band rocks but probably pay higher auto insurance rates than most people. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Bat-Winged Crow It's just kind of a cool image that just popped in my head. Markisov
The Bathroom Five Do I have to explain myself? burntbyhope
The Bathroom Passes It's kinda sick, okay, but in middle school they were THE thing to have. Sarah
Batibot batibot is deep tagalog(filipino) word meaning small but terrible...or shall I say Samll but kick ass! Sidd
Batteries Not Included  If you're of the un-electronica kind and strictly steered toward real instruments, this would be, in my opinion, the best one-word explaination of a band trying to get that point across. OR maybe irony is the theme. Odette
Battery Not Included It's cool because it has two meanings. It can mean a battery you use to run toys, flashlights etc., or a band that refuses to get in fights or beat up people, thus the battery is not included. rocky
Battery Operated Boyfriend (Bob) If Steely Dan can get away with it way back in the seventies, surely this is legit today!? I heard it at a bar in Jersey and knew it would spread like wildfire. I know I like my Bob. Mardel Rankodel
Battle Of The Frost I was playing "Super crazy guitar manic deluxe 2" and I remembered that one song from the NESkimos. I was thinking "that sounds cold, like, frigid..." Then I wanted to add a "Battle" somewhere in the band name, thus I came up with "Battle of the Frost" BombDodger
The Battlefield Its the name of my Hp fan fiction on Snitchseeker.com and its one of those names that really stick in your head I guess. I think itd be cool for a Punk (or not punk) Rock band or such! ROSSE
Battteries Gone Dead i was watching this wierd movie on tv called batteries not included and im in a band myself... but the other members in my band didnt like the name so i guess someone else can have it.. smoocher
BAUKEM! The sound a person makes when they are knocked upside the head senseless. My friend makes this noise when massacring in video games. This is how you know he has won. noodleboy
Bayonet Misfire Describes humanity perfectly. They get something good and confuse its purpose, and then they screw it up completely. chris
Bazinga Sheldon's catchphrase on CBS's The Big Bang Theory JeReMy
BB McGee well ppl i kno have big boobs so we call them BIG BOOBED Mcgees Caprodeites-long story
BBY (Best Band Yet) It's cool because it's short and tells a lot. [Ed's note: And hopefully, for their sake, it's true.] Alicia Parnel
The Beagles Best pop group nay group period bar none? The Beatles. Any band who plays similar type music. Would sound cool. Laszlo A. Voros
Bean Bush i came up with this name as i was remembering the time when i was at a sleepover, and we were playing telephone, and the phrase was paint brush, but by the time it got to me it was bean bush, u kinda had to be there, but it was really funny Kacey
Bean-stain Pink Mikey I was doin this mad lib with a friend of mine in grade school and we did this stupid one and it asked for a color and we came up with Bean-stain pink; and mikey was our protagonist's name... Mark Borison
Bear Victim #4 This came from a radio ad for Leiney's beer where one of the two brothers who own the company is casting a movie to show how they went from their humble beginnings in the woods to where they are today. The other brother asks if he has a part in the movie. "Sure, here you go." "Bear Victim #4?" Disco 3:16
Bearded Bunnies Can you imagine what bearded bunnies would look like? Weeeeiiiirrrrdd Mouse
Beast Pieces I was ridin with some peeps from Dallas to SanAngelo after heavy night of partying and we kept seeing road kill everywhere that my friend coined"Beast Pieces" Hambone
Beautiful Colors Colors Are Beautiful and Ya Its Kinda Awesome Karissa
Beautiful Disaster Obviously from the title of a Kelly Clarkson song. I thougt what a great band name! It's an oxymoron, i like those kind of things. It conjures up something that could be really wonderful but will probably end in a spectacular and sad way. And at the same time is a real big mess. Kind of like the story of Romeo and Juliet. Ed
Beautiful Disaster Also a name of a 311 song. blc
Beautiful In Pink Fetus Umm ya its just gnarley. My friend can up with it for our band so TAKEN lol. He likes the word fetus and he's got pink hair. Dani
Beautiful Jail In the Jimmy Eat World video for the song "Work" Various kids are interviewed about what they think about high school, and one girl says "high school is like a beautiful jail" I thought that was pretty cool. Hawk
Beautiful Nightmares It's kind of like our lives. They can be beautiful, but they can be nightmares. My friends and I started this band and we liked the name. My friend Jenna is the one who came up with it. We loved the name so we decided to use it. Amy
The Beautiful Peepholes Or inspiration Marilyn Manson gets when he looks through keyholes to see the nasty girls doing nasty things. I thought you would like it. :D D. Mented
Beautifully Disasterous Awesome song name by a local Winnipeg punk band, and the name and the song blows me away. kayey
Beautifully Grotesque Another oxymoron featuring words synonymous with both beauty and ugliness. Courtney Love would be a perfect example of someone who is beautifully grotesque. Pope Benedict's Bastard Son
The Beauty of Smashing We came up with this in my guitar class. My teacher said we could smash some cheapo Stellas, and i said, "Ah, the beauty of smashing." And so our band was just that. I AM IRON MAN
Beaver Barrier This was one of the clues in a crossword puzzle. I think its supposed to mean a beaver dam, but it just sounds so much cooler, like a beaver breaking the sound barrier. Think about it! Sonic Boom Beaver! (hey, thats not a bad name either) evilweevil
Beavers At Nine I was watching TV one day, and a commercial came up advertising a nature program about Beavers at nine o' clock. It's cool because it's oddly funny. Go ahead... just try saying it with a straight face! Chris
Bebop i just thought of it from cowboy bebop! i love that show! tee hee hee! shorty
bedknobs & broomsticks that's a movie but i got the soundflow from angels & airwaves...  jared28136
Bedspread Jesus i came up with it when my friends 4 year old brother came and stole the box of cheez-its i was eating and i said, "hey ben stole the cheez-its." my friend replied' "did you say bedspread jesus," and a band name was born lieutenant yummy
Beef Curtains When I was in England in the 80's (touring with a band), I learned a lot of Brit slang. This is a female anatomical reference...  Mongoose Eyeball
Beef Muzzle Got drunk and came up with it. thought it sounded funny yet cool Justin
Beefaroni Shoestore Uh...it's kind of a long story. Let's just say I combined 2 jokes from Comedy Central Presents and Just Shoot Me. wadded beef
The Beefcake Brothers We thought that this name was totally gangster. It sounds 'original' with a bit of a meaty tang. Just think, the first song could be titled, "Greasy Spatula". Doesn't it ring a bell? We thought that it would be awesome: The Beefcake Brothers with their number 1 hit single, "Don't Go Squishing My Buns"!!! Alley&Kara
The Beefcake Monkeys my friend put that as a banner on cell phone one day and I thought it was funny ton ton
Beeh Grade Because it's not an "a" grade like perfect. It's slightly off beat, just like a rock band, (personality wise.. not musically). Brittney
Beer Frisky As far as I know, this is original to me. One night, I was a little drunk after drinking one of those supersize beers at an Atlanta Braves games and I leaned over to my then-girlfriend and slurred "I'm feeling a little beer frisky, honey." Mel S. Hutson
Beer Induced Haze It just is cool. The best! Paulie
Beethoven and the Electrons hehehe i came up with this one for my friends because they always come up wiht the STUPIDEST band manes (aka the eclectics, the surgeons) and they also think they are the greatest thing to happen to music since beethoven whihc they are actually as far from as they can get. poor guys OH yeah
The Beethoven Remix Actually going through this site there was one name with Beethoven in it, and so I toyed with the idea. I figured Beethoven needed a little makeover so there you go. *~*Amsy*~*
Beethoven's Poems An old joke from Ringo Starr... G
Before Draco I kept on attempting to spell Before Dark and it kept on coming out Before Drak. I immediately thought of Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter. Douglas Bucksworth aka D.B.
Befront A fake word created in A George Thorogood song. G
The Begining  what!? there is a band called the Afters Why not have this. Brenda R.
Beheaded By Big Ben Acronym: BBBB. Inspired by a sick movie ad for a 1970s horror film "Midnight", where a hot naked woman is decapitated by the hands of the clock Big Ben, completely covered in blue. Her head doesn't completely come off yet, but her eyes were staring deathly and her tongue was hanging out of her mouth. Don't worry, she was only a model, so she wasn't really beheaded. British Bullcrap
Behind Closed Doors This is actually my band, so please don't take the name. I thought of it when I was watching the news. The anchor was talking about hidden information. Cheech
Behind the Label One of my friends told me to check for something under a label, when she said it I realized it sounded like a great band name. Lynne
Behold The Irony  Mike Oxlong
The Behoovers I lot of folks use the term "behooves" (as in "It behooves me to...). The most famous usage has to be "Muffy" (Jami Gertz) on the 80s show "Square Pegs". I also know a co-worker that it behooves him to use that verb over and over again. Jonathan
The Bell Rang I think it was cool because when I would practice with my band at school in the music room. Everyone that would be listening to us would say, "The bell rang". That's when we knew it was time to stop.  magic man
Belle Gunness Name of a woman from Indiana in the late 19th to early 20th century who poisoned as many as 26 men. Disappeared circa 1906 and was never seen again, living or dead. Donny
BeLoW ZeRo One time during the spring, it snowed and the temperature was below zero. It was a really cold day in the middle of spring, below zero. You don't get that everyday. Since it was such an odd coincidence, I thought it would be a cool band name. Mop Top
Belt Out Loud I like it because it's a combination of get Belted and Laugh out loud. Tammy Brady
Ben and the Wa Balls My friends and I always say "That was the name of my band in high school" when someone says something unintentionally funny. My friend Ben mentioned he needed help coming up with a name for his new band, so before I could think straight I said "How about Ben and the Wa Balls?" What was so great about it is the other girl who was with us kept badgering us, saying "WAIT! Why is that funny? What the hell are Wa Balls?" [Ed.'s note: Ben Wa balls are Chinese metal balls used for sexual stimulation.] Amy
The Ben Conspiracy One day I was sitting in a coffee shop with my boyfriend (whose name is Ben) when a friend of mine walked in (also named Ben!). That night I sat at home and realized that I know tons of guys named Ben. The next day, I exclaimed to someone, "It's a conspiracy of Ben's!!" Kaaarleh
ben for the rebound A friend of mine has a crush but the girl is taken. When they break up someone said that ben will go in for the rebound. I think this name would be good for punk rock/pop or emo band beardangel777
Ben Steeler It's a combination of Ben Stiller and the Pittsburgh Steelers JeReMy
Ben Therre and the Don Thatts i was bored and talkin to my friends trying to figure out what to do and every idea was followed by a been there, done that, and we ended up makin up a band, adn one of my friends name was ben...it was just kinda funny Stephanie
