Names -> Cool Band Names -> C, 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:
Captain Crunch For Lunch Funny and rhymes, my band said no way but maybe sum1 else will like it. mike
Captain Emo and His Band of Merry Men This is sort of a take on Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, except Captain Emo and his Merry Men dont get along, at all. fardwark
Captain Klepto & the Lightbulb Thieves A mate came up with this about 10-15 years ago, when we were looking for band names. It was because someone kept stealing these special three coloured lightbulbs from a pub near him. Tony
Captain Krook And The Lunc Box Crew The Name has the kiddish feel to it, but fun. Stupid, but amusing. Reanne
Captain Legend Its my brother in law's idea. He made it our name for our Rockbnad Band...best game ever by the way Ashlan
Captain McAllister and Handsome Pete Two characters from the Simpsons. Henry
Captain Nemo and the Plastic Catholics This is my Adam and the Ants cover band name. A great name because it evokes instant recognition. CN is the hero to many, and the PC makes for astonishing and acrid conversations. brad
Captain Quirk I thought of this when thinking of band names. It's a pun of the "Star Trek" character name "Captain Kirk."  Renard
Captain Spasm and the Shakes In high school, I had this awesome substitute teacher who said that this was his band name back in college. He also said before that, they were called "Free Beer". That would draw some crowds! twackt
Captain Sweatpants A minor character on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory JeReMy
The Captain's Log Not necessarily a crude sexual reference. It is a chronologic historical document of record, essential, vastly important and captains of all varieties must maintain one. Trekkies remember all those "Captaons Log; Stardate..", entries in the star trek series. The rest of us remember the answer to the famous question, "What did Spock see when he went to the John." badboybear
Captian High Top and the Love Commanders From a Mother Love Bone song; always thought it would make a great band name for someone that didn't take themselves too seriously. Fotch
Car Crash Hearts  Iman
Car Pet its a car...and its a pet. kind of like pet rocks, but with wheels. Kyle
Car Rex A great name for a hard rock band with two possible origins: 1) Named after the Car-X Muffler chain. 2) It sounds like "car wrecks". Rocky
Carbolic Smoke Ball Heard the name during a Business Law and Ethics lecture. Would probably play some kind of steampunk music. Possibly. Andrew
Carbon Copy Legend I came up with this when we were learning about carbon dating in school. My teacher said carbon and legend in the same sentence. It's cool because its a electronica band. drummin guy
Carbon Stereoxide I just thought of...guitars and sound systems breathing carbon dioxide. :)  trashed
Carbonated Piss I was drinking mountain dew that was a year old and said it tasted like carbonated piss. Guest
Cardiac Arrest i just thought of bad experiences ive had and took another bad feeling and made our name scott sales
Cardiac Delights I love to eat high-cholesterol meat. It makes me high! It's cool for a band with very fat members! Jipri
Cardiovasectomy Comes from the one or two memorable lines in "Stick It", an otherwise forgettable movie about gymnastics. One of the gymnastics students in the movie doubts that her instructor is in good enough shape to jump on a trampoline. As he declares his intention to do so, she cautions, "If you get on that tramp, you'll have a cardiovasectomy!" As he ignores her cautioning and climbs onto the trampoline anyway, she exclaims "I'LL have a cardiovasectomy!" D. Melody Dole, MD
Carghay I was listening to the radio a few days ago and it said: 'Tonight we'll be playing Man-to-man's *gay-machine* ' And with the words machine i thought of cars, and with the word gay i thought of ghay (the austrailion version of gay), so i came up with 'Carghay' (which comes to mind cargo deck). My teacher said Carghay was a type of Resonal Liquid (theres another cool band name!) but he is a laugh so Resonal Liquid might be his version of made-up words and a cool band name! Whatdoyathink? Rox-Elizabeth
Carless Roadtrip We thought it was cool so we named our band Carless Roadtrip. Travis
A Carload of Carlos's "A carload of Carlos's,(I believe there were 4 Carlos's in the car) were behind me at our local," What-a-burger" drive thru,and it kind of just came to me in a druken stupor!' B Delgado
Carnival of Defeat The band name has that angst-ridden touch to it, sort of rough rock-n-roll. It was classmate's band in college, and they came up with the name from a headline in National Enquirer. Oondy
cARNY pEOPLE Parents hate it when you hang out with them. They are always on the road, only come out at night, and have questionable character. What would your dad say if you announced, guess what I'm gonna marry a guy, he's one of those cARNY pEOPLE ? Great name for a band HIPPI CHIC
Carpe Noctem I've always been on a quest to think of a cool band name, and I've finally come to it. It's courtesy of a quote from my friend Jon. We were on a Scholastic Bowl team together, and when we went out of town to stay in a hotel for Sectionals, he was talking about what we should put on our T-shirts. "We're such night owls, we should have 'Seize the Night.' Y'know instead of 'Carpe Diem'...'Carpe Noctem.'" And then I realized, "Whoa. That would be THE most awesome name for a band, ever." Why? Because it's a play on words, it rolls off the tongue, and foreign band names are the coolest. So if I'm ever in a band and I get to name it, I'll definitely call it Carpe Noctem. Cat
The Carpet Frogs I was sitting on the carpet with my buddies. I made a "ribbit" sound with my a**. Farts on the carpet? Blame it on the carpet frogs! Alizza Fitzkrinkle
Carpet Samples i was with my family shopping for carpets....hense the name Jonah
The Carpet Tunnel I heard a woman mispronounce "carpeltunnel" as "carpet tunnel". If there was actually a carpet tunnel, Aladdin would be a happy boy indeed. truth
Carrero Blanco Campeon de Salto That means Carrero Blanco, Jumping Champion. That's the name for an old forgotten Spanish punk-hardcore band. Carrero Blanco was the chosen successor to Franco, the old dictator. He was meant to follow the dictatorship. A terrorist group made a heavy bomb explode under Carrero's car when he was inside. The explosion was so big that the car went high to finish on a roof. Frankie
Carrier of Problems.. I guess its just coz life is full of problems, theres always something wrong in peoples' lives, and I'm always having people weigh their troubles on me.. Elen
The Cars That Ate Paris One of the original names I suggested for a parody band I was part of a couple of years ago, never seen the film, but I've always kinda thought it'd make a good band name. FYI, the band was eventually called "Randy Old People". Long story. Actually, it isn't, I just can't remember it. Heathcliff the Cat
The Cartiers Pronouced "cart-e-yea". Cool random French last name...what could be better? thiery
Cartilage My bands name is Cartilage because cartilage does a lot for your body. It is the thing that holds together joints that keep the body standing and without cartilage, you would fall apart. Tyler HAll
The Cartridge Family The whole family forms a "bubble-gum" group, but with Charlton Heston as the front man! Maybe they could open for The Chamber's Brothers. princejellyfish
Casa's Harassas Okay, you guys don't get it, but my algebra teacher's name is Mr. Casagrande, and me along with the other fellows in my band enjoy harrassing him. A band name we've considered. Wood
The Casanova Complex Hmmmm, me and some friends just pulled this outa our a**es Kevin R.
Casari I came up with it when I had a project in social studies where I had to design a C.C. cover about ancient China. Naked Monkeys
Casey Orchestra There was this amazingly skilled kid running sound for a show... he was about 10. his name was casey (although i'd have liked to call him doogie howser), and we were all so totally impressed that i said i would name my first band after him since he's still in school (duh) and wouldn't be able to tour with us. so there ya go. jessica sage
cassinova I was watching this movie.. and i was like this wouldbe okay for an all dudes band.. Porsche
Castle Dracula I think it kind of sounds like it could be a band that is really heavy on the dance/techno stuff. Or they are kind of dance/goth stuff. I mean if you are going to have a band that's gothic, isn't Castle Dracula just about perfect? Ed
Casualty Murder  Miranda
Cat Paw Duster I was looking through the Guinness Book of Records from a couple of years ago, and I saw this Japanese guy who'd made all these weird creations, one of them being dusters attached to a cat's paws so that it would sweep the floor as it walks along. I was instantly inspired! Fuji-san
Cat Puke Pickup I was sitting at band practice and my cat was on top of a shelf and it puked off of it. And it just happened to land right on top of my bass, directly on the pickups.  Darryl
Cat Toupee I was really tired and saw a picture by Matisse. I thought it said Cat Toupee, but it was something else entirely. When I mentioned it to my friends, they all said, "Yea great name for a band - is it a toupee made from a cat or a cat wearing a toupee?" That's the mystery... WCBM-GRUG
The Cat's Pajamas this is the sickest saying in the world. it means your the shiz-nit!!! zach b.
Catalyst I was in mexico and it was our theme it means a person or event that causes great change. It would be cool for a christain band. Laura
Catapostrophe' Well, as one might figure, it's a hybrid of the word cat, catastrophe, and apostrophe. I just came up with it on a nice sunny day. Joosep Ehasalu
Catastrophe It sounds like a good name for a death metal band. You could write suicidal songs about Osama Bin Laden! Graham Jackson
CataTonic Catatonic describes the state of being afflicted with catatonia. ("Catatonia" is "a syndrome, especially of schitzophrenia, marked by stupor or catalepsy, often alternating with phases of excitment.") CataTonic sounds good because it puts emphasis on "Tonic," which -- you pick the definition -- has to do with music or drugs. Medication-High Jesteress Among Royalty
Catbackwards Yeah...amazed it's still out there... G
Catchpenny I was looking up cool words for an essay and I found this online. It baisicly means something meant to appeal to the ignorant and dumb. I just thought it would be an ironic band name, but still catchy none the less. Nate
Catchpenny I didn't come up with it, and neither did you, Nate. There's a very successful band out of Minneapolis called CATCHpenny (catchpennyband.com). They're also the first thing that comes up when you type that in on Google. You guys should check the names first, just because now the name could be used by anybody.  ray
Catchy Pop Rubbish I was browsing a friends MP3 collection on my computer and in a large list of folders named after various bands I found one named "Catchy Pop Rubbish". At first I thought it was actually a band name and admired it, but when I realised the folder name was descriptive, I started wanting there to be a band out there named that. Sofox
Category:Death I was surfing (on the net) all about death gods and goddesses. Then, just below, I saw, also try Category: Death, Life, Reincarnation and so on and so forth. awie
Catfish Vomit After my friend's catfish threw up, I thought it would make a really cool band name because it is so unexpected. I was looking at the mess she (the catfish) made, and I thought "Wow, a catfish's stomach did that." Saltcreep
Catharsis I can't really explain the meaning of the word, but it has something to do with purifying/cleansing, relieving your emotions-- so that's what the music supposedly does to the listener. Got this idea from the email add of one of my friends MJ
Cathartic Carnage Carnage : a great and bloody slaughter (as in battle). Cathartic : purification or purgation of the emotions (as pity and fear) primarily through art / also a purification or purgation that brings about spiritual renewal or release from tension I really like this name. Found it just playing around with a dictionary. Feel free to use it!! Morgan
Catholic Phonebooth It is cool possibly because it reflects a post-modern view on the way we reach and react wih realist values and views. bun-ga-low bonsai
Cauliflower Mash A saw some chef on The Food Network mashing cauliflower as an alternative to mashed potatoes. So I'm thinking that you could mash anything if you're in a rock band.  Your Aunt Flo
Causing A Disturbance It sounds like a cool political punk band Punkz Not Dead
Caustic Love Well caustic is a biting, burning, severe pain Kind of remindes you of love doesn't it. He He  Jcky
Cavalier Firefighters Cavaliers are mounted soldiers from the Renassaince period. Firefighters are well. Just plain kicka**. Caboose
Cavatina Basically, this is a solo or small piece of music that is part of a larger work. I wanted to name out literary magazine this, but it lost the vote. But it would also make a good band name cause its all melodic and such. Probably not so much for gothrock etc. but for softer stuff. Lia
Cavebitch Just thought it would be cool to see a bunch of cavemen addressing their female leader as Cavebitch. Lil' Rick
Cavezas de nodillo I means knuckle heads...well, it's kind of a nonsensical, literal translation into Spanish to which they just kind of go, "huh?" davood88
CBONE A cool name for a punk band. Tanner
Cecil and the Sprocket Holes Any self-respecting Cecil B. Demented fan would love to have this as their band name. Austin

Celery Stock We played our first gig in the produce department of a grocery store. Ed Madsen
Cellar Door Drew Barrymore in Donnie Darko says something about it being the most beautiful phrase in the english language...I dunno that movie kicks though and it sounds cool Laurie
Celluloid Zeroes A play on the title of The Kinks' classic "Celluloid Heroes". Their first album will be titled "Don't Wait For The Movie". band name
Celtic Surge Sounds like a girl band. Loreena McKennet's 'Mummers Dance' mixed with electronica or techno. Zelda
The Cephalopods Means "feet on the head." Think octopus, squid, chambered nautilus. This would be a good name for a prog rock band. I can imagine a cartoon squid playing a Stratocaster on the bass drum. Surfer Beto
Cepillo De Dientes De Cthulhu Its awesome because it means Cthulhu's toothbrush! Hell yes
Cereal Killer I got it from an episode from The Simpsons. Rachel
Cereal Killers Union What if serial killers started their own union, but didn't know how to spell? This is the idea behind this grindcore hard rockers (CKU for short). Moron

Cesa Hle It means chelsea! the letters ar mixed up like c at the begingin of chelsea and H after C a cool way to spell it! Chelsea
Cesspools In Eden It's the way this country is like now. People who live in their own little world, partying and escaping from society, thinking life is great while it's far from it---this country's economical and moral decay is sinking further and further into a cesspool. [Ed's note: You could say that for any country. It's just that the evils of America get all the press.;)} Annie C.
CFC It just sounds good. CFC=chlorofluorocarbons, which are putting holes in the ozone layer. Scott
The Chad is Great The phrase Tom Green wouldn't stop saying in "Charlie's Angels". Sounds like a punk rock band name.  Junior

Chains Of Sorrow ahh well too much of thinking Joe
Chainsaw Bunnies DON'T USE. My band is gonna use it. Um...in 6th grade, when I started my "Career" as a cartoonist, I made a cartoon called 'Evil DeathBunnies from Hell' about a group of bunnies that hacked people to shreds with chainsaws because they were tired of...er...being bunnies. So, yes. Chainsaw Bunnies. If you steal it, I'll hurt you. I guess. But it would make you an unoriginal person! sXemosucksXe
CHAIVET it means a nothing, not evening a real word, it just means to me a something to me but anyone is nothing is my own nothing ALX(Prophet SPINE)Alex
Chanandeler Bong It's cool cuz I heard it on Friends...this is the name that Chandler and Joey's TV Guide comes billed to. The girls guessed it was Chandler Bing, but Ross informs them that it is actually Chanandeler Bong. Chandler then tells Rachel that "it's actually MISS Chanandeler Bong" with a big smirk on his face, which is so typical Chandler that it's so funny! Fel
Change For A Blue Day Green Day cover band. Thought it sounded cool when I was high. Dave
Change For A Penny It is a rather ridiculous name, as you can't change a penny. Though I do ask around sometimes (well, all the time). Aj
Change For A Penny  This name is cool because how can you give change for a penny.I came up with this name when my buddies and I started asking for Change for a Penny WAR85

Channel 7 it a local cable channel and my mom just started doing a pretty cool show on it zake man
Channel Lightvessel Automatic It's one of the sea areas on the UK shipping forecast. I always thought it sounded cool and would make a good band name. Then some b*****d decided to call their band Channel Lightvessel and release an album called Automatic! Robbed! Dan
Chaos Because There's a ring to it, don't it?? My friend wanted something Chaos. And I just thought because. Celine
Chaos Burns White Well it not satanic like Chaos Burns Red so I changed it to white and it sounded awesome Caleb
