Names -> Cool Band Names -> B, 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.

Boddah It was Kurt Cobains imaginary friend as a child. Daz
Bodies On The Lawn I was picturing people being blown away from a kick a** band. techthisout
BodyPolitic something my cousin made up chives
Bok Choy Also a Chinese vegetable, but it has a certain ring to it. It came to me when I was on iTunes and there was a singer named David Choi above a band called The Books. If you need something edgy, why not this? Alex
The Bold and the Beatles My grandpa, which is Dutch, couldn't pronounce the word beautiful and replaced it by the word Beatles.  Nick
The Bollocks The perfect name for a Sex Pistol tribute band - they'd be introduced every time with the phrase, "never mind the Sex Pistols, here's the Bollocks." Red Tim
The Bolsheviks I was just sitting in history class listening to a lecture about the Russian revolution and I thought the name sounded cool. Might be good for a band with a 'revolutionary message' or something. Mike
Bomb for Birthday Exploding birthday gift...it's awesome. Sinister Sully
Bomb Sniffing Dogs It's got everything -- it's got bombs, it's got sniffing, and it's got dogs. Juan Ordonez
Bomb The Ozone I thik this is cool cuz I'm tired of hearing about the ozone layer and how it's dissappearing. Which leads to another cool band name, Nuke The Hippies. I got that from a Simpsons episode. Jack Mehoff
A Bomb, A Nation Good name for a political punk band. Said phenetically, it sounds like "abomination". Luke Monte
Bomb-Diggity Blueberry Bagels Strangly enough, I heard a girl in the bakery aisle of Harris Teeter shout "Wow! These blueberry bagels are the bomb-diggity!" and I just thought that it'd make a cool,but strange, band name. chiquita
Bombs in My Head Once, I wrote a song with a line "Bombs going off in my head/ Fireworks flashing in my brain" And it seemed like a cool name. SamVK
Bombshell Squad My cousin suggested this name for the band. I'm in, but we refused because we found a better name. Our name is TNT [me] and the Dynamite Squad. Tyler
Bonbons Assortis Translated, it means "Assorted Candies".  Joe Montmatre
Bone Idols It means lazy, but the music will be far from it. anonimous
Bone Marrow In an episode of "ER", a kid needed a bone marrow transplant. Would be cool for a Heavy Metal group. Forcefed Beatboxer
Bone of Contentment Clearly not the same thing as "bone of contention". Any band with this name would probably not take itself too seriously. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Bone To Be Wild I saw it on the shirt of some dude in a Red Hot Chili Peppers music video. TB
Bonecrushing Handshake A bit long but has a cool meaning to it when u read it. Used to be our band name. Austin

Boney Wallsockets It's from the Fox show Bones. I heard on the second episode of season 9 and had to post it as soon as I heard it. JeReMy
Bonpilot Just think of a WW1 fighter pilot (with scarf and googles) hitting a bong. bongpilot
Bonsai Kitten It sounds like it should be pop, but I think it would make a good death-metal band name, named after the disgusting practice of "shaping" kittens by shoving them into containers (like a cube), and they will grow into a cube. The Desert of the Real
The Boobies Since there are quite a few bird names for bands, including The Larks, The Sandpipers, The Flamingos, and The Eagles, here's another bird name I thought I'd suggest! D. Melody Dole, MD
Boodle Wallacane A friend of mine told about how he, as a child, and playmates from next door were one day making airplane figures out of Tinkertoys. The youngest of the group exclaimed at one point, "I'm gonna make a boodle wallacane!" My friend surmises from the context that the little guy meant he was going to make a "beautiful airplane". D. Melody Dole, MD
Boof It's the name of an awesome comic. Read it! squirrelguy931
Booger Feast For the only special band whose members never got past the 6th grade in school.  sick

Books On Tape We were in the car and my mother asked my friend what kind of music her mother listened to and my friend replied "easy listening and stuff, but mostly books on tape" I thought that that would be a cool name. Phoenix
Boomerang It sounds like the type of band that will blow you away, and then bring you back to life. lexa
Boomonomatopoeia An Onomatopoeia is a word that describes a sound, and (something the editor couldn't decipher), it says BOOM. nevergonnaknow
The Boonedock Saints It was an awesome movie. The Boonedock Saint
Bootie McBoob A Bloodhound Gang-type band. The name comes from the end of the "Max Power" Simpsons episode, where Homer is suggesting Marge change her name. Bootie McBoob was one of the suggestions, along with Chestie Galore and Busty St. Clair. "Good night, Bootie." "Let go of those!" Olvan The Terrible
Booze Fall Take the first letter from each syllable of foosball, switch them around, clean it up a little and you've got a cool 80s type band! eyrtie
Borborygme I believe it's a French word meaning: the noises that your stomach makes when you are hungry. pat
Border Patrol In Social Studies we were talking about how people are jumping the Border and how we need more Border Patrol, and I thought it would be a sick band name. Kett
The Bored Collective This is an obvious knock-off of Star Trek, plus, I'd love to see this one on the marqui. It sounds like a bunch of uninterested Trekkies. Mazotti Jordan
Bored Meeting Obviously a play on board meeting. I'm not sure what kind of music they would play, maybe sophomoric stuff like Bare Naked Ladies, sort of serious but mostly funny. And anyway, aren't most meetings really boring? Ed
The Borg Patrol Somebody came up with this in the misheard lyrics story section, under 'Pink Floyd'. Now, why didn't they also put it here? Well, I just corrected that mistake. IHaveNoBrain
Born To Bleed I think this sounds like a cool, hardcore christian band. Basically saying that Jesus was born to die for us. Get it? Fabian
Born to Breed It explains the meaning of life in only 3 words. Alan Durbish
Borrowed Bedroom Eyes Bedroom eyes is a well-known expression for the look you give a lover when you want to have sex...etc. i.e. "batting your bedroom eyes." Borrowed bedroom eyes is simply that...a borrowed look of lust, basically a disinterest. Ashley
The Bosco Addicts For those addicted to chocolate syrup. Or The Ovaltine Addicts for those who prefer powdered chocolate. MOR
Bosco and the Stix there was a product in the cafeteria of the school called "bosco sticks" and on karaoke night at school, i identified myself as Bosco Stick but when others saw my vision, I became Bosco and the other became the Stix for the name "Bosco and the Stix" antesse
Boss Dogg It would be a cool hip-hop name, especially for a redneck rapper since it is based on the character Boss Hogg from the TV show "The Dukes of Hazzard". Jack Mahogoff
The Boston Smileys If you don't already know what one is, you don't wanna know... would be a ska/punk oi band prolly. Dirty Man
Bothersome Mucus Got this one off the back of a bottle of cough syrup. Andy
Bottle Rocket Wars I was looking at the site, and thought of stuff I like to do. mountaindrew21
Bouncing Betty A trip-wire mine, designed to explode at groin height. jona
Bouncing Off Zombie Some other guy suggested it in a chat, said he though it would be a good band name Sofox
Bouncing Pebbles If you're a schoolkid and you started a band this would be a cool name. It's like the Rolling Stones--but the kid version. Bobilina
The Bouncy Councils Trying to write bouncy castle and was obviously thinking of something else. Makes no sense whatsoever and that's why I like it. Yazz
Bovine Like You Cuz it'd be a good name for a bunch of sloppy ass-holes who just cant play their instruments right. It has a wild lil "kick" to it! Bianca
Bowel Revolution "Some people have bowel movements. I have bowel revolutions." Yet another term for digestive problems. IHaveNoBrain
The Bowl Of Cereal Killers Could refer to either a band fond of breakfast, or some kind of deathdrome of mad psycho's. The duality is very fascinating.  Tom Kizach
Bowling For Bean Dip A homage/blatant rip-off of 'Bowling For Soup". IHaveNoBrain
Bowser's Minions For fans of the Mario series, I came with this to describe Mario's REAL task in the games. Alan the Ottoman
BowZer ReVoLutiON I picked this name because Bowser is Mario's arch-nemesis. Without Bowser, there'd be no Super Mario Bros. games. And without those, well, just imagine an 80's, 90's, and new millenium without them. Come on, you gotta give the Koopa SOME credit! He is pretty cool looking, after all.  Zinglo
Box of Wolves I've always wanted to hear a band with the word ' wolf ' in it!  Purple K
Boxers or Briefs This is a dive into the philosophical side of musicians and listeners alike. A lifelong that remains unanswered and unproven. Davo
A Boy Named Sue Well I guess it speaks for itself erik
Boy Scout Cookies Me and my friends were visiting California and were at a grocery store where we saw Girl Scouts selling cookies, and we thought 'Hey why don't Boy Scouts sell cookies?' Jake K.
Boy Toy And The Band Of Skanks It's cool because everyone knows a boy toy with his very own band of skanks. Yea, you know, the class pimp, the one at the office who always has nooners with interns, etc.) ashleyS
Boys (or Girls) At The Office It could be either one or both, with the members dressed businesslike (you know, suits and ties buttoned shirts, tight skirts),. Richard Head
Bracelets for Heroin This guy at a party was talking about being at a misfits concert, and there was this little midget guy with an arm full of bracelets that he was trying to sell for some heroin. I thought it sounded like a cool name for a band andie
Bracing Hope It's cool because in this world, you win some and you lose some. And all you have to do is brace hope...that's what we did...DON'T TAKE IT! Someone special
Bracketology If you had to fill out an NCAA bracket form every March, you know what Bracketology is. Mr. Sports
Bradhadair iz from one of the sweep books its gaelic for fire starter or fire faerie iz really cool 4 a new age band ( or even a wiccan band or w/e) n on the cover u could put a guirtar on fire and on the back as a background for the song numbers a faded red fairy JUST A THOUGHT  tootsieroll
Braided Peace I was trying to come up with a rock band name that didn't promote violence and would have some duality in it. The icon I came up with would have two handguns or "pieces" (slang for handgun) pointing towards each other with the barrels "woven" or braided into each other to signify them being "rendered useless". David William Rogers
Brain Burgers me and some friends were kinda drunk and watching hanibal Oranganium
Brain Damage One day me and my friends started a band and needed a name so the first thing that came to mind was "brain damage" Dominic

Brain Fart That's my term for a dumb, useless idea that comes outta nowhere. IHaveNoBrain
The Brain Worms Yep, I can just picture it now..."Mommy? The Brain Worms are playing, can I go see them?" Nyte
The Brain-dead Space Cadets I suppose it started with the Dead Kennedys, then cross-bred with the term of opprobrium Space Cadet, carried one step futher. Michael Chas
Braineact I came up with it because I have a friend who she thinks she is so smart so du what do you think we would call her!!!! music
BrainFrame I was thinking of the word mainframe and all the words that rhyme with main. Brainframe also sounds like a punk band, so there you have it. Slate
Brainfreeze I was trying to think of a band name one day while eating ice cream, and got a huge bite that froze my insides. Then it made me think of the day the i was eating ice cream at my sisters house and got an ice cream headache, and her boyfriend started yelling brainfreeze. kyle
Brainwashed By Society My friend and I had a punk band for awhile, and this was the name, because we felt as though we were taught how to live life by the society and the things taught in school (go to class when a bell rings, do as your told, etc.) and we thought this was bullcrap, so we decided this was it. B-TyM
Brak A sidekick from "Spaceghost : Coast To Coast". Cool character, cool name. Vorn
Branch of X-tinction a bunch of guy friends and i were doing jackass and skating and we jumped off this tree and this musium lady walked out of a building mumbling to himself about some sort of extinct animal.  Christine
Brand New Slacks its great coz it refers to pants and being a slacker at the same time.. Tara D
Branded ten-care tommy lowe
Branded Savage. Hello, folks. In keeping this short, I just wanted to say that, as A Native American, natives back some several decades back were basically considered to be savages only because of what I see as a people defending something. They were quickly losing, and to me, that was their land, identity and a way of life. So, since early childhood, I have it engrained on my mind: a picture of a lone native man, on his knees, with his hair held back tightly, hands tied behind his back, being "branded" with a branding iron,the word "savage". Wayne.Dudoward
Brandon Is Dead This will be a good name for a band that has a guy named Brandon in it. The fans will think that someone died. Ryan C.
Brat Worst It's a play on "bratwurst" and pronounced like the word "brat", meaning an impudent (misbehaving) child. I got it from a made-up bad joke I told a few times. German
BRAWL! It just sounded cool to me. enemy909
Brazen Brazen is another word for "shameless", I just think it's cool. kearnage
Brazen Head I came up with this one day when I was looking through my witchcraft books. I found this name and it just stuck in my head. But is has a dark meaning to it though, so beware if you pick this name. Nelly
BRB More text talk. NICKI
Bread Of Affliction A term that represents utter chaos and deceit. This name is dark and is driven by an even darker past. A childhood filled with violence and torture. Therefore the music produced would have to be quite the steady backbone for such a name. In common terms of explaination, the name means this. The father brings home the bread and afflicts pain upon the child. A great name for any lead singer who suffered from any sort of abuse at a young age, as I did. BOA
Break the Broken If it ain't broken, don't break it? Instead, break something that's broken? The band name leads to lots of strange questions. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Breakfast Activities My mother's best friend tells how she was taken to the movie "Breakfast At Tiffany's" as a child. She had been mishearing the title as "Breakfast Activities". She didn't get much out of the movie (at least back then), so she was disappointed and thought "Breakfast Activities" would have been an idea for a better movie. D. Melody Dole, MD
