Names -> Cool Band Names -> C, Page 7

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:
Courtney Hate A parody of the name of the ex-hole singer. G
Cowboys and Indians This should be a band name. More for a country rock band or one that does western swing style country music. Not a real "rock" band name, but I like it. Edward
Cowpunk And The Crazy Kids Neighbor is always screaming 'Crazy kids!!!' Cowpunk makes good for altcountry name. Bosephalopod
The Cows That Wanted It Long story..once I was making fun of my friend Pat, and he has this fondness of cows, so i said that he had a cow in his bedroom the night before, doing you know what. he said "hey, that cow WANTED it!!" later that day i went to music and we were listening to this band called the exciters. my friend matt and I were making up synonyms for the exciters just because we can, and one of the ones i came up with was 'the Cows that wanted it'. then i had to tell him of what happened earlier that day to explain that name, and its been an ongoing inside joke ever since. Sarah-neko
Cows Wear Leather Sat around at a party listening to some militant vegans go on about fur coats and leather jackets until (after a few rounds) I blurted this out. Riot_Gear_Nick
CowsOnProbation Awhile back, I had this beanbag cow and I was on the phone talking to my ex, who insisted I name the thing after him. I said that it was too close to me and threw it across my bed. A little while later, he asked me what happened to the cow, and I said that it was still across the bed. So..the inevitable question was asked : "So the cows on probation?" Cool name for a punk/rock band. RAraaa

During class me and two of my friends wanted to play dominos, and the domino set the teacher had were special dominos.

The Crowing Fishes Just as jokes are made like "I've seen a house fly" and "I've seen a board walk", bird enthusiasts have been know to add to such quips "I've heard a fish crow". That comes from the fact that "Fish Crow"is the name of an actual species of crow.
