Names -> Cool Band Names -> C, 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.

C U Next Tuesday It's better than See You Aunty.... and uses my favorite word in a way most people don't notice kerri

C.McZedoe On my job, I have to monitor a marine radio for ship traffic on the Mississippi River. That's where I first heard this name of a tug boat. Some tugs are named for old river men. I don't know the real spelling so I spelled it just as it sounds. I think it's got a real roll to it, perfect for a band to be remembered. It's to be pronounced "See-Mac-Z-doe". France Dupree
C.U.M. it stands for cool unrated movies (porn) bizzach02
C1v1l Arrest I DONT KNOW ME AND MY FRIEND WERE DOING HOMEWRK AND WE WERE THINKING AND WE WERE LIKE THE CIVIL WAR AND I WAS LIKE CIVIL ARREST WAS AND WE JUST LIKED IT ALOT SO WE STUCK WITH IT!? MATT

Cabbage Snatch Dolls I just thought it would be a cool name for a band -- no particular reason. Susan

Cad Man Cad stands for Computer Assisted Design. Mr. non-de-plume
Cadaver Dogs It's cool because it projects an erie finality. I came up with it by watching a lot of Court TV. Vince
Cadaver Dogs It captures Rock Music's fascination with death. I came up with it from watching COURT TV too much. It always seems their using Cadaver Dogs for finding bodies on their different shows or during current searches for missing people who they think were done in by foul play. Thanks, Vince O'Neill  Vince O'Neill
Caddy Smells Like Trees A repeated line in William Faulkner's classic novel, "The Sound and the Fury." They could be the thinking person's bluegrass band. Olvan The Terrible
Cadence It is when a quarterback calls out when the play is about to start. I think that it is a great name for any alternative-rock band. Sean Tanner
Cadet Carter I just think it's plain cool. I'm a Cadet and I liked this guy called Sam so I wrote him into my novel with a different surname (Carter). So I mixed real Sam with book Sam and came up with Cadet Carter! Emma
Cads of Badness This was listed and it was the name of a bar band in Eastern Washington/Northern Idaho about 20 years ago. Dark Dragon
Cads of Badness Being from the '50 era of music, was just incorperating a car (Cadalac) with black or something "bad" , so , there it is! Idaho Joe
Caffeine, Maijuana, and Ninjas As you all know, there is an awesome website called howstuffworks.com. Well when i started thinking off all the stuff i know more about than a normal person should because of this website, these are the first three things that came to mind Tyler
Caged Crystals  because like ur a probably a small band right now tha nobady knows but i know u have potential to be really cool and crystals are just cool things so i don't really know it just seems to make a good band name plus it sounds cool too macki
The Caged Purple Kites I just thought of how much I used to love being free outside and playing with my purple kite my aunt gave me. But as I grew up, I started noticing how much responsibilities you attain. All I could picture was that purple kite trying to break out of a cage representing me trying to break away from life. Rj aka Tr1ck
Caged Rabies It just sounds like a cool little rock/pop group. Kinda like Offspring or Fuel. A little aggressive but has songs that'll change sides. Romy

Calico Ghost Town Found it in an atlas. It is in California That guy on Bent Mountain
California Stop A "California stop" is another term for a rolling stop at a stop sign, when someone doesn't fully stop. I heard it and thought it would make a good name for a Grateful Dead-type group. Carla Bisagni
Calignaphobia It used to be Caligynephobia (the fear of beatiful women) but we slurred it and its Calignaphobia (the fear of horrible music). Ben
Caligynephobia Caligynephobia is the best band name! "Fear of Beautiful Women!" I own it though... it's copyrighted. ducksauce
Call Box 47 In the Air Force we always had to call box 47 on the intercom, that was our boss. So it's kind of sentimental and like your always reporting to someone. It's a good Emo name. fired08
Call Me Ishmael For some odd reason, i think it sounds sweet. as a lot of you probably know, its from MOBY DICK. It honors our great literary past (pffff), and i guess you could link the name to some hidden meaning in the book, like the struggles Captain Ahab went through, or SOMETHING.  jessie
Callback International I was looking through a phone book and it said 'Call Back Internationally for only 5p". I thought it would be an awesome band name for a band. John Smith
Callidus Ficus I started an all-girl band my freshman year of high school. We had NO idea what to call ourselves, so I went online to a English-Latin dictionary. We were typing in all sorts of random phrases when we suddenly came up with "Callidus Ficus" or (in English) "Clever Fig Tree". This comes from a very old inside joke, and we thought it just sounded awesome. (pronounced cul-EE-dus FI-cus) Pikkle
Calligraphy My mother bought me a calligraphy book for my new school so I fit in and all. I also like the ring to it! 707

Callous Malice You know that political party that has the opposite beliefs to yours? Yeah, those guys. This is the perfect description of them or perhaps the name of a band those people would be into. RevengeFromMars YouTube

Can't Fix Stupid Bounces A combination of Frosty the Cat's Can't Fix Stupid and my Stupid Bounces JeReMy
Can't Make it Up if I Tried I say this when I tell someone something that is really weird.  JeReMy
Can't Resist the Rockerr It's so true if they're any good, I was actually just responding to a question of whether I would prefer a preppy guy or a rocker. And the double "r" just makes it more kick-@$$. Alex
Can't Stop The Nutz "Can't Stop the Nuts" was an actual name of an ice cream flavor at Baskin-Robbins to promote the Village People's ill-fated foray into movies with "Can't Stop The Music". This band name could describe the psycho fans of the group---Can't Stop The (Demented) Nutz.  bandesoleil

Canadian Leprechauns My friend and I were acting drunk once when we were hyper. I said that I was once abducted by a leprechaun, and it took me to Canada. Then I thought that'd be a weird band name. So yeah, that's how it happened lol. randa
Canadian Metaliods We all were sitting in Science class talking about how ridiculous Canada jokes can be. We were supposed to be talking about metaloids and we thought it had a cool ring to it. Jon

Cannabis Crops I think this would be a perfect name for a stoner doom metal band. It's a play on words of Cannibal Corpse, the stoner metal equivalent! Thought of it while really bored. Funny, I don't smoke weed...
Canned Elephants. Well, for those of you who know how some clever people come up with little thind to remember thing like Every Bad Girl Deserves An Egg (guitar strings) Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge (the lines of a music staff). Well, my teacher said it was a good thing to do to remember things. So, to remember the 11 Characteristics of Life (Biology 112) , I came up with one. The characteristics are as follow: Reproduction, Cells, Metabolism, Require Energy, Grow, Movement, Require Water, Adaptation, reaction to stimuli, Carbon-based, and finally excretion. The letters go like this RCMEGMWASCE. My sentence, which just randomly popped into my head was this: Real Cabbage Munchers Eat Green Mellon With Apple Sauce and Canned Elephants... I thought canned elephants were the best thing I have ever thought of. SomeoneAbsurdleyHumorous

Cannibal Cows We were discussing Mad Cow Disease in my Ecology class, and the teacher said they used to grind up unuseable parts from dead cows and feed it to other cows. I was all like "So they're cannibal cows? You know, that'd make a cool band name."  IHaveNoBrain

Cannibalistic Butterflies me and my besfriennd came up with it in Writing class. We had to write about oxymoron's. and i said cannibalistic butterflies. cannibalistic, because it's like eating people and butterflies, because they're so sweet and innocent.  Anna
Canniballistic Llammas I was watching a cartoon where there was a show on called "When Good Llammas Go Bad". Then it showed a news reporter petting a llamma and saying "Who's a sweet South-American cud-chewer? Who?". But then it went off-screen and you could hear the man screaming"AAAHHH! My arm!" So I think it's pretty neat. Sanji

Cap'n Geech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters Haha, this is hilarious...but it's in the movie "That Thing You Do" Nick Barber
