Names -> Cool Band Names -> C, Page 8

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.

Cruel Sweater A wordplay on "crewel", which is a fabric used to make sweaters among other clothes. You wouldn't want your sweater to be cruel to you, would you?  Fashionably Nate

Crushblood I think it's funny. All an XCORE-METAL band needs for a name in a couple of violent words with no space between them. Matt
Crushed Air Of course you can't really crush air. It's just something I came up with making up band names. But I think it's pretty cool. It certainly gets your attention. It's quite imaginative. I think it's a band that would be in the style of 80s new wave or British new romantic. I know I'd buy their records [That's cds to all of you youngsters out there! ;) ] Edward
Crushing Diamonds makes it sound like the band could do anyhting  jo
The Crushing Thumb of Oppression 4 college guys road-tripping across country lamenting about the man keeping us down. Rufus

Crusin For A Brusin how many of our moms told us this? punk band/tough guy hardcore band chantz
Cry Red Tears This is what Vicious said to an elder before he killed him on the episode, "The Real Folk Blues Part 1" of Cowboy Bebop. I always thought it was a good name and always will. Darius Cloud
The Crying Shames I see a retro cheeze lounge act that does Serge Gainsborough covers and originals in the style of Doo-wop. - Everybody in blue tuxedo shirts naturally! millam
Cryo My dad works for a space place and he said cryo and he used it like cool so i asked him what? he said cryo really means cool as in cold so it just sounds cool too. d QEDA
Cryosleep Does Not Work on Robots It comes from Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. JeReMy
Cryptic Ministry of Death I came up with it when I looked up 'cryptic' on the internet and it means "hidden or obscured". I was obsessed with death at the time, which i still am, and liked a band called Ministry, so there you have it. Cryptic Ministry of Death.  Chazm
Cryptic Picnic It is cool because, it just is! Adam!
Cryptic Rebellion Yes. Cryptic Rebellion. Chazm
Cryptic Service Cryptic means "mysterious" and the name sounds mysterious. Chris

Crystal Dream I was on a lucid dreaming website and somehow crystals came up. I thought 'crystal' then my next thought was 'dream' and I'm like oh crystal dream!! jpka159
Crystal Math It's like some weird combination of crystal meth and math. I got the idea from a autocorrect mistake I saw, where the person said they were going to do meth and meant math. JeReMy
Crystal Sugar Orgasm  My friend David was talking about the rush one gets when he or she downs a few sugar packets. I asked him if it was like a crystal sugar orgasm...thus, greatness was born.  eliza
Crystal Swan Saw it in a short horror story as a character's name (the character was the sister of a pop singer named "Singer Swan"....could be a pseudonym, or maybe the name of a synth-techno band... Syntania
Crytical Bypass An intentionally misspelled "Critical" in this part of the notoriously bad $200 SNES/Sega Genesis game compilation "Action 52" (which was previously submitted for the list) makes this a cool band name idea. JeReMy
CSD (Complimentary Steak Dinner) A lot of people would show up for (a) Complimentary Steak Dinner... Shattered Faith Rules
Cthulhu Anybody ever read H.P. Lovecraft? This would rule for a satanic death metal band. IHaveNoBrain
CTRL, ALT and DELETE. When stuff goes wrong, those are the best buttons ever. ninja
Cubemate In the world of cubicles, if you share one with some one else they are your cubemate. Neato. Stace
Cubic Sphere I wrote a program that combines words to make new words. When I saw Cubic Sphere, I thought it was cool because it's impossible for a cube to be a sphere. Patrick Coston
Cue I like the letter "q," and this just crossed my mind while I was doing homework. millalilla
The Culottes The first part sounds like "cool". And culottes are cool pants/skirts. A no-brainer. Odie Garfield
Culpable Deniability Just a little saying I like... Unsichtbar
The Culprits The Culprits originated when the other band members and I were under arrest for vandalizing the neighborhood. When the cop who found us asked us who the culprit was, it stuck with us. a.j. esterige

Cultural Collision Because I had to do a project for a youth group and it was about outreach to other cultures. Evita PAtrick
Culvert I can't believe no band appears to be using such a delicious word! A culvert is both inviting and slightly dangerous. You just don't know where it's going to go. It is simply brimming with industrial darkness and possibility! Though it can be a bit smelly. Hey, what great band isn't all of these things? Skot
Cunning Lingus-The Cunning Sound of Lingus Cunning Lingus! Need I say more? Years ago, a friend asked me to create some tickets for a show that he and his band were hosting. He said the name of their band this time was Lingus. I mirthfully suggested that they could marquee it as "The Cunning Sound of Lingus". He was not amused, but I certainly was! SamIam
Cunning Stunts After a few alcoholic beverages, people are bound to reverse the "St" and the "C". kawboy

Cupid's Diaper He makes you fall in love...as he poops. Malus
Curdle Overnight I came downstairs one morning and found a warm carton of milk staring me in the face, that should have been in the fridge. I thought to myself, could this curdle overnight? I started to chuckle. I love the sound of the phrase - "Curdle Overnight"  dave miller- manny
Cure For Apathy A band that no one seemed to show interest in. Chelsie
The Cure For Hypersomnia I came up with this band name because when my buddy and I were labeling our religous school folders; he called his "The Cure For Insomnia" because it was so boring, it would put you to sleep. I thought that the opposite would be a good band name. Therefore, I'm writing it right now. Anonymous Force Of Cool
Curiosity Under Ninty's Tree (C.*.*.*.) My friend is called Ninty. She stood under a tree, and she was curious about daffodil stamen. [Ed.'s note: I wouldn't use the acronym.] The Mega Midget

Curly 'd' And The Partial Derivatives I was sitting in Calculus 3 with analytical geometry a couple of weeks ago and the subject of partial derivatives came up. They are denoted in one form as a backwards 6 or a curly "d." The rest was pure creative genius. Rocky
Curry, Curry, Curry It started out as me and me mates shouting it out in the middle of the park for some reason. It could be a Middle Eastern band, and their first single would be called 'Chicken Tikka'. Also their would be a dancing curry on stage. Bob the magic Hobo
The Cursive Numbers When I was in elementry school, this one girl was helping another learn cursive. The first one asked about "Cursive Numbers"; this is my tribute to that whole incident. Deathawk
Curtis Parody On YouTube, Curtis Paradis (said "parody") is a guy who posts videos about recent events (usually involving new Apple products or Sims 3 expansion packs). So I figured, since his name is similar to "parody" why not make this a band name. JeReMy
Curve Of The Earth Saw a TV ad...it showed the Earth from outter space...The Curve of the Earth! Plus it flows off the tongue and to SEE the curve of the Earth you have to be "Above it All" which sound like the bands first CD!:  Chris McConnell
Custodial I just think this is a cool name for a five man indy-band. I came up with it while trying to write a song in my head, emptying trash cans at my school. Peter the Reader
Custodian Lightbulb My friend was in the shower and you know how random words just pop into you head and they don't mean anything, well, custodian and light bulb sorta just came into her head, she then told at school and said "what's a custodian lightbulb?" and I said, "An awesome band name" so there it was Custodian Lightbulb. Meyghan
Customer Service I was reading the suggestions and somebody talked about "Taking back Subway". And the name seemed quite literal, so this instantly popped to mind. Hawk
Cut The Honey Was this name inspired by a) Capt. B.J. Hunnicutt ('Honey Cut') from M.A.S.H.? or b) The phrase 'cut the mustard'? spitzkrieg
The Cut-Rates For a band with self-esteem problems. A cut-rate is a price far below retail, but can also refer to a lowly person. Frank Hotdog

Cutting Room Floor Its my friend's new band's name. I think it's creative and edgy. SHADE451
Cuyahoga County Cornoner's Convention Well, you got your alliteration, so there's that. Plus, they're coroners, so there's the goth element. Cuyahoga County and Cleveland go together, and everyone knows Cleveland rocks. Plus, conventions? Dude.... Jason Reeher
Cyanide Cuz it's like acid s*** and it sounds catchy i reckon Stoned_Fly
Cyanide  I was sitting in science class the other day and when my teacher said this, I just thought it would be a cool band name. And it would really work the best for heavy metal/punk rock bands Annali Bekari
Cyanide For Cindy My friend's girlfriend (who was very cruel) was named Ashley, she dumped him. So we started the band's name out Arsenic for Ashley, but then thought of Cyanide for Cindy, in case Ashley caught on. Cory
Cyanide Milkshake I was just thinking up random band names and they were all pretty bad and i thoguht of them and i was like dude, these are total opposites. then i thought of iron butterfly and led zeppeline and i wa like wow i am a genius. Dan man
Cyanosis "cyan" means blue, then I discovered the name in my sisters handbook for nurse. meaning something bluish Clarence
Cybergrope It goes on among many nerds across the world, super funny!!! Nice name for a Fear Factory kind of band, with a hint of Korn and Slipknot on the side la lokilla babyblu
Cyborgs I heard that and thought it would make a great band name. NICKI
Cyn Pyle Interesting spelling of concept. Suggested album- Pack of Lies Cyn J
The Cynic Route Because so many of us are cynical and pessimistic about politics, government etc. It's a twist on "scenic (route)". First album could be called "Take the Cynic Route". (The album cover) could show a Scenic Route Sign crossed out with "Cynic Route" by a bridge that's fallen into a river and clearly not in operation. Windrider
The Cynical Silhoulettes This would be a really cool band name for a band that has a dark,jazzy sound or 60s inspired. Chokex
CZX I was on a car trip and thinking of all the cars made with three letters and the third letter is X. I managed to get through all combinations (it was a long trip) and CZX just stood out as really cool sounding. Brian Kelly
