Names -> Cool Band Names -> C, Page 4

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.

Name
 
Origin
 
Submitted by:
Children Playing With Matches After hearing of so many home fires being attributed to the existence of these same unidentified youth, I fugured this should be the name of the next hot heavy metal group to appear on the scene. KT
Chili Con Carnage I was looking at a list of weird band names and saw Carnage Asada but no Chili Con Carnage. It seems like a perfect name. Jeremy
Chili Wilt Fun Guys Every year chili has has to be harvested be fore "chili wilt' fungi attacks and damages the entire crop; bad for chili lovers every where but cool band name. badboybear
Chilisplit My mother and I were sitting in our vehicle on a cold winter day. I was listening to the radio and "Should I Stay Or Should I Go?" by The Clash had come on. Mom remarked, "Chilly!" (referring to the temperature) just before the vocalist called out, "Split!" and I decided to combine the two. I changed the spelling of the former simply because I like chili peppers (though, I suppose Chillysplit could work as a name, too). Jonathan S.
The Chill A scary but cool name. enemy909
Chillin' with Dillian It rhymes. fok you
Chimeranimals One word, yes. The name for those...erm...jellyfish-like things from Tokyo Mew Mew. If it was the English spelling, it would be Kiremanima. Either is pretty damn cool. Douglas Bucksworth aka D.B.
Chimneyswifts A chimney swift is a kind of bird related to the swallow. This band name, especially when written as one word, is great for a British rock group. Any kind of British rock style, from XTC to Blur to the Smiths. Olvan The Terrible
Chimp Go Boom Makes you think of a monkey falling out of a tree. Chimp go boom! Aw poor monkey. FuNkY mOnKeY
Chin Disco Tyler I think this band name is great because I know somebody with a huge chin called Tyler. She also gets her nickname The Crimson Chin from her enormous oversised chin, AKA chinzilla. I think this could be used in a band because some people have chins which are big.  greek myth
Chin-acious "C" My son used to be friends with a kid with multiple chins named Carter. Susan
The Chinchilla Vapors of Olneyville, RI Even if your not from Olneyville, RI...... JTO
Chinchilla's Revenge I don't actually know that's it cool, I just like how it sounds. But anyway, there's a realtor in the area who's last name is Chinchilla and when I saw that I decided that's what I wanted my last name to be. Having abandoned the idea of changing my name, I wanted to work Chinchilla into something and so I came up with Chinchilla's Revenge for a band name. I have no idea what kind of music they'd play ... probably some of that pop/punk stuff that I can't stand. Or maybe just straight-up punk. That'd be better ...  Jessica
Chineapple Punks Cool name for punk band. (Spoonerism for Pineapple Chunks if you haven't got it already). Matt Lacey
Chinese Fire Drill My two friends and I are throwing around the idea for a band. I thought CFD would be a good name because after we finish a song, we all switch instruments. crazy pete
Chinese Fooooooooood It just seems like a cool Chinese band name... I got it from "Dude, Where's my Car?" That is the name of the restaraunt with the "And then scene" Chris Smith
Chinese Men on Pogosticks I was listening to the "pogo song" by system of a down and looking at an old picture of a chinese emperor dude Nikku-sama
The Chinese Punk's Piano Me and my friend Cassie were thinkin of people to be in our band and we thought of our friend Nicole who plays piano and thought how funny it would be if we had her playing piano in our rock band. Chels
Chink Money Its kinda like Cash Money, but not a rap band. It'd be a metal or alternative band. Me and some friends from school came up with it. We were stoned and wanted to start a band, but we sobered up and realized nothing good would come from it. Daniel Cruz
Chipmunks On Coffee Chipmunks are about the most hyper animals on the planet. Also, think about it...the lead singer shouting at the end of a concert, "Goodnight everybody! We are chipmunks on coffee!" and everyone will be like what the heck? TheStupidGenius
The Chitlin Raisers This is inspired by a line in the movie "Fletch Lives". The title character, played by Chevy Chase, is asked by a sheriff what he intends to do on the land that he has inherited. Fletch replies, "I think I'll raise chitlins. They're mean little animals, but their coats are worth a fortune." D. Melody Dole, MD
Chlamydiot Someone who is dumb and has an STD. Or is that redundant? I could see a punk band with this name. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Chlorophilia Distortion of the word chlorophyll, but also means "liking the color green". That's just cool. Somehow. Princess Ana
Choad We were in school, and we were thinking of Dani Filth's real name and... well, you see! princess_of_evil
Chocolate Breast Milk I've long thought it would be cool if this were possible. It's also a memorable band name.  Renard
Chocolate Chug and the 2%s I played in a funk group where the only black guy was a drummer. We also considered affirmitive action. Neither was chosen EIU
Chocolate Covered Rainbows It sounds yummy, doesn't it? I was thinking of something that would be the total opposite of what the music style of a rock or metal band is like and thought this would be pretty cool.  Isamar
Chocolate Covered Salamanders My friend has a screen name similar to this... the "salamanders" part comes from an old school inside joke where she does the "salamander dance." It's been a while since she's moved away, but the salamanders live on! Medication-High Jesteress Among Royalty
Chocolate Covered Snooze Buttons It's cool because NO ONE has thought of it before. Then again, it might just be really stupid. Oh well. Such is life. Steve Smith
The Chocolate Factory Pretty self-explanatory -- a majority like chocolate so the imagery might appeal to them, also it obviously stems from some story named 'Charlie And The Chocolate Factory' [anyone know about this?] Also it's highly memorable. First impressions might be a soul collective but I'm thinking more electronic music as an even more alluring contrast. Devil Jones
Chocolate Hearts It sounds interesting and delicious Jaybird
Chocolate Nostalgia Kinda silly. I'm walkin' up to Wendy's thinking: "What kind of Frosty will I get? I had vanilla the past couple of times, so I think I'll get chocolate out of nostalgia. Wait a minute... Chocolate Nostalgia. Say, that kind of word-combo is perfect for a band name!" Hypnotically Handsome
Chocolate Subway My friend Kelton and I were starting up a band. We thought what would be the best band name ever? Then we went into separate rooms and thought up two random words. I thought up subway and Kelton thought up chocolate. So we slaped them together and history was made. Don't use it, it's copywrited. marcus
Chocolate Tigers Another result of combining two cool things into a single awesome thing. Da Phoenix
Chocolate Twinkies There first album would be called "Creme-filled" and their first song would be called "Cake". Junior
Choking Hazard (1) They play really tiny instruments. (2) They appeal only to 3-year-olds. Tim Baehr
Choking On The Sound Well I was just on the computer one day and I saw something that said , "STOP"! You're choking the sound.  Justin B
Choosin His Exit Excited Steven's Eskimo It's cool 'coz its initials are C.H.E.E.S.E I got it from Joey in "Friends". lol :) The B A double Z
Chopped Liver When someone else gets rewarded for work equal or less than you, you reply "What am I, chopped liver?" Opie M.
Chordless Phonies A cover band for Spinal Tap or maybe the Monkees? RevengeFromMars YouTube
Chortle Its a word from that awesome poem where the guy made up all the words. I thought of it. Syzmanz
Chow Mein Kampf! While having lunch in a Chinese restaurant and trying to think of words that ended in words that appear in the beginning of other words (example: monKEYstroke ), I happened to notice that the word "mein" is both Chinese and German. The name is the result. Maybe good for a punk/ metal band or album title.  smokey
The Chowder Society it was a group of old men from a hitchcock movie who got together to tell ghost stories DanEnterprises
Christ on a Bike I read the name in a book once, and decided it would be a fantastic band name. In truth, it did start out as an exclamation.  Josh
Christianity Incorporated Sort of a crust punk/metal band, because so many churches have gift shops.  destruction party
Chronic Irony is the smartest form of wit. Would you not agree? Eddy
Chubby Bunny this is a good name because it's funny and everyone will laogh at your band name, but will love your music. this name is named after the game chubby bunny, were u stuff marshmelows in your mouth and say chubby bunny.  Christine
Chuck Norris tell me one person better than Chuck Norris besides Chuck Norris himself. mc
Chuck Taylor and the Superstars The two biggest retro sneakers, after all. They'd do music of the late 60s and early 70s... when the Converse Chuck Taylor and the adidas Superstar were the Air Jordan of their day! Charlie
Chucklepud  Was the name of a D&D character.  Indy Gman
Chucks Chuck Taylors are cool shoes! i dont have a pair but they are awesome! my uncle was in a local band called chucks, actually he wrote their theme song, its was kinda rap it was called "chucks" it went "here a story of hishtop sneaks that everybodys wearin at the bottom of their feets" then later it goes "chucks are cool chucks are in, chucks are better than dock martins!" i think that's how it goes anyways lol Kaity Cochran
chuckstar chicks this is a good name for a al girl band . Me and my cousin were singing songs and she came up with that name katie
Chump Change It's from that thing you do...the movie, and the guy goes "hey thats chump change" they say it alot, but as a band name it rocks. candu
Chumps Adolescence  I miss read one of the words on here thinking it said adolescence.. it didn't.. so I thought what chump I am! Elliemaseee
Chunder Ponies Just a note: this name is also an oxymoron (sort of), because horses can't vomit. Jinx

Chunderbucket Just because it sounds funny. IHaveNoBrain
Chunk's Chubbie Well our drummer had a Chineese Shar pei wrinkle dog named Chunk and pops a chubbie everytime someone walks in the door. He is a freeeaakkk!! JP and RY HA
Chunky Dunkin' My friend hates when people talk about nudity around him, so after dozens of bad "your mom" comebacks, me and my other friends kept saying "chunky dunkin'" to him, even putting a sign with it above his bed at a week long summer camp for Christian teens. If you don't know what chunky dunking is, it is the act of fat people skinny dipping JeReMy
Chunky Monkey My friend and I used to call this girl chunky monkey because she was chunky and always carried around her pet monkey. B**** Burgade Member # 3
The Chunky Thighs of Retribution It's like Biblical and a deep throated plea from married men who yearn for pretty thin girls. Spazmo
Chympansies There's Gorillaz and the Monkees, so why not another misspelled primate? Jimsdun
CIA - Criminals In Action I heard it a song by Zach de la Rocha and KRS-One. I thought it was cool. TGK
Cicada A cicada is a musical bug, and a bug is another word for illness. Music to me is a illness because it runs through your body and only certain people get it. I was told it was gay, but I like it.  jch1000000000000000
Cid the Destroyer This is an epithet of my friend. It's actually Cid the Destroyer of Hawaiin Men, but it sounds better shortened.  Alicia Ant
Cigarette Smoking Men Afther the mysterious Cigarette Smoking Man on "The X-Files". The band would sing protest songs about the banning of cigarettes in bars and clubs across America. Rock Quarry
Cigarettes and Snipers Well we were having a band practice and my friends were all talking about snipers (I don't know why) and then my uncle was smoking a cigarette so I thought it was a cool band name... Jules

Cigarettes with Vaginas It just sounds cool. Chazm
The Cinderblock Carstands Well if they really suck they could always find customers who need cinderblocks for their cars around here. Thats for shure! Badboybear
Cinderella Chili Pepper I heard those words on a TV show when I was a kid. It's stuck with me ever since. Y'z Cracker
Cinnamon Sin Just sounds cool...I think...and I guess that Cinnaminson is a town in New Jersey. Keith Bro.
Circular Breeze My sister was watching Pokemon 3 and there were a bunch of Hoppips flying in a circle. I pointed out that they rely on wind so there would have to be a circular breeze, which struck me as a great band name. Chocolate Candy Cane
Citation Needed In this day of the wiki, it seems a natural. Snoozeman

Citrus Acid I came up with the name when I was reading the ingredients on a pop can. I just thought it sounded kind of cool. Kelcey

City Slackers I thought it was awsome. I am from the city, and I am kind of a slacker at times. So i put those to together and got this. I thought it cool. Jen
The CitySounds How can this not be cool... the sounds of the city!! joris182
Citzens of the New Earth (CNE) It would be cool for a punk rock Christian band. It refers to the new Earth that will be made after this one is destroyed. Demersus
Civic Level Very cool looking if you stack 'civic' on top of 'level' (all small letters) and write the 'V' as a capital so it fills in both words. And don't forget to turn the 2nd 'e' in 'level' around so everything is alike. Great logo.  Gary Gray
Civil Effect I was thinking up band names for my band (duh) and this popped up. It means, to me and my band, that we are civil people affecting the world. use it if ya want.  Sean
cixelsyd its dyslexic spelled backwards like a dyslexic person would see it and its awsome tho a little hard to pronounce MaRc
Clamshell One day me and my band were all jus chillin out. That day it happened that my friends door got jamed. So i said randomly "if that door was ne harder to open it would be like opening a clamshell." Then we thought about it and we realized it was a pretty cool name. David

Clantily Scad some drunk telling me about a "scantily clad" woman, came out with this slip. thought it was too good to go to waste..... harlin moss
The Claps I've never heard of a band called the Claps, and I have no idea why. It's nice, simple, and suggests that their music has a light rhythm (like hand claps). Princess Ana
Clarity It means clearness and easy to understand. And its sounds awesome too!  SS
Clarityblur  Oxymoron yes, but it's always nice to sum up life in 4 syllables. rcsqueamish
Classical Music is Crap I think it's best for a rap or hip-hop group. Joe
Clay Marbles I saw clay in wal-mart then I saw marbles and I was like hey clay marbles cool!! Anna
Claymation Vacation Thinking of the 80's videos and some of the creative visual effects. alchem99
Claymore It's an explosive. I saw it playing Call of Duty mike
Clayton  OK, let me explain. Clayton is a drink that tastes like alcohol but isn't alcoholic. It's known to be absolutely awful, and so when you say, "This is a Clayton soup" it means that it's tin/packet soup-meaning, unreal, poor imitation. Like a drink can make up for a coktail. Puhleeze! obo
Clean Underwear Because we all know it's the most important thing when going out...clean underwear.  Suzette
Clean Up Crew I was going to use this for my band but then we changed our name. I thought it was good, so I put it on.  Ryan C.
