Names -> Cool Band Names -> D, 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:
The Dead Bens It's from Game Grumps. During one episode, one of them comments that "a lot of important Bens have died", referring to fictional dead Bens. JeReMy
Dead By Night It was in a book I was reading. Plus I'm listening to Bon Jovi - Dead Or Alive and it reminded me of it. Is it a name already? I don't know :S sproggle
Dead Certain There's the idiom "dead certain" which means absolutely certain, but it could also describe what you'd be if you insult some huge drunk guy in a biker bar. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Dead Dragons  Scryed
The Dead Girlfriend's Society It's cool cause it just is. I came up with it while listening to my RENT CD, in Light My Candle, where Roger tells Mimi she looks familiar, and she retorts with "Like your dead girlfriend?" and I imagined April and all the other dead girlfriends forming a band called the Dead Girlfriend's Society... They'd probably be a cool gothic all-girl rockband.  EvilGirl
Dead Grin It just came to me from how The Joker's victims all have smiles on their faces. G
Dead Harpooners i don't know how i came up with this, but i guess one day it just fell into my head and i think it's the perfect name for a sea-loving hard rock band. Parker
Dead Head Fred I originally was thinking of a name with rhyming sounds (like "Ted Ed Fred"). Then later, after hearing some Greatful Dead jokes, came up with this. I just found out that it's now a name of a PSP game. They took my name and I didn't even get compensated. mortal.1
The Dead Jocks For all the musicans who got beat up in High School! BillyGTexas
Dead Man Blabbing i was sitting down with my friend trynna think up a name for his band...and just generally bitching abt thier singer...and i told him that the singer was soo dead when he sang..it was like he was just blabbing out his last words...and the name sprang outa there...dead man blabbing....the bands all gone and dead now...but the name is still cool... ME
Dead Man Sleeping We all heard "Dead Man Walking" so i changed it a bit =) Arx
Dead Men's Underwear Can't remember why, but the phrase "dead men's underwear" came up in conversation (and a normal, clean conversation at that). Sounds like a good punk band's name. Disrespectful, nilhilistic, makes no sense - a textbook example of how to tick off the Establishment. Blempglorf
The Dead Metaphors Found it on wikipedia by accident and thought that it sounded swell!! steve austin
Dead On Arrival I read an icon that said "This conversation's been dead on arrival" and I said,"hey that might make a cool band name, Dead On Arrival. Chokex
The Dead Parrots A reference to the funniest Monty Python sketch. Tottigoal007
The Dead Pecker Society When we were kids we use to hear our 77 year old, diabetic Grandpa say, on the sly, to his friends that he was a charter member of the "dead pecker society". It wasn't till we were grown with occasional E.D. of our own that we realized what the old man was joking about. At 58 and 61 y.o. we now have our own rotating scripts of viagra. hehe, haha, hoho... But if we were young men I don't think we'd name our rock band this. But it might work with an all girl band. Dash & Max Murdock
Dead Romance My friend and I have a band along with a few other cool people. We were all going to decide on the name "Dead Romance" since it sounds pretty cool and it said alot about our music. This title is probably good for a Taking Back Sunday, Fall out Boy type of band. Girl band, boy band... does it really matter? Sarah <¦3
Dead Semen I was sitting a party one night when a bunch of my fried-mind Navy friends we tossing about putting together a band. That's when it hit me! The Dead Semen/Dead Seamen! =P MICRO¤DOT
The Dead Sirens As my friend and I were passing by Hollywood Cemetery, we heard the faint sound of a siren.  Hi!
The Dead Skin Layers A group featuring a combination of dermatologists and brick layers. Ta-da! crappy song title
Dead Star The name of a Muse song. I just think it would be a great name for a rock band. FRG
Deadbeat Formality  Literally came to me in a dream (cheesy, I know) okay
Deadbeat Losers I came up with this name because of the song "Deadbeat Holliday", by GreenDay, then i thought about how much of a loser/punk i was so i put Loser after Deadbeat. It should be a name for a punk band who dont give a s*** about themselves. Skipper
Deadly Apparatus it is a good name for people who are interested in the fall of troy,trophy scars,skylit drive,ect. losing ur breath out of air kind of stuff Melonie
Deadly Beat I think any punk emo or rock band could use this. LInkin Park Fan
Deadly Bread "I just opened my mouth, and out it came!"--seriously, though, it's kewl. Their debut album: 'A Loaf of Deadly Bread', followed by "Day-Old Bread" and a blues album "Breadbasket Full of Blues". Taltos_sp
Deadly Method I think this is a cool band name because it could be for any band whether you're punk, rock , or heavy metal. I came up with this name because I'm in a band and have been searching for a name myself. I've been so desperate I've went around asking friends for ideas, most were pretty lame but this one sounded pretty cool. My friend told me this name because of his skateboarding he said "I have deadly methods to show you!" and I thought that was cool. If anyone wants to use it I suppose you can. Ouch!
Deadly Popsicle When I was about 8 years old, my best friend Drew flung a frozen popsicle at me and broke my nose. Josh:Valos
Deadly Projectiles It was in a newspaper column by Dave Barry. Sounds like a good name for a rock band doesn't it? : ) : ) Liz
Deadly Sins Because I love the name is would sound awsome I think 4 a rock band 89gysot
Deadpan Doras It's got Pandora in it, plus alliteration. What more could one ask for in a band name? RevengeFromMars YouTube
Deaf By 30 I came up with this while going with my dad to the Wine Rack and hearing one of those nitwits in their cars who BLAST THEIR HIP HOP MUSIC SO FRICKING LOUD THAT YOU CAN HEAR IT FROM TEN BLOCKS AWAY and you can hear the bass through your feet and it gives you a headache. (No, I'm not an old codger, I'm 13! But it's annoying ya gotta admit...) And I'd just thought, well, those people who do that will probably be deaf by 30 ... then, hey, cool band name! It sounds like a punk band. FuNkY mOnKeY
Deaf By Thirty It just makes sense. Most hard bands will be "deaf by thirty". It sounds cool and my sister thought of it. alchem99
Deaf Iguanas  i have a friend who gets random thoughts at 3am when i facetime her so yea  Macki
Deaf Punk Off the band Daft Punk (with the hit One More Time), cuz they are obviously deaf. If they weren't, then they would stop making their music before someone got hurt. Matthwala
The Dean Malenkoes It's odd to name a band after a wrestler especially one not so well known.  Quinn Crossley
Dean Pelton Elevator Massacre In the "Community" episode "Modern Espionage", Dean Pelton engages in a paintball battle against five other guys in an elevator. He's the only one to emerge not covered in paint. Shortly after the episode aired, someone on the IMDb message board said the Dean Pelton elevator massacre was one of the best things about the episode. Brian Kelly
Death Dunno why but I just like the word 'death'. It's almost onamatopoeia, - it sounds really satanic when you say it. Zandie
Death & Disney These are the first two thing that come to mind when I think of Florida, due to two nationally covered murder trials that resulted in "not guilty" verdicts (I don't think I need to mention who), the number of large, deadly snakes seen in the state on Animal Planet specials about extremely deadly snakes, and (on a much lighter note) Disney World. JeReMy
Death 2 Cowboy because my punk band hates country music and we also call our drummers boyfriend cowboy and we dont like him vey much  CanadianCHIPmunk
Death At Dawn I dont know. I was just sort of thinking about something after reading breaking dawn, and I was like... whoa!!! death at dawn!!!! and lol yeah... just sort of came to me. Jordan
Death Becomes You It seems like something that would attract a lot of metal listeners. Damien Bloodlust
Death Beyond Microcosm I was sitting in English class drawing on the book cover, when I saw the word "micro" written on it. Before I could realize what I was doing, I finished "micro" with "cosm". Eventually, the whole thing came out. Weird! nelson
Death By Design I work in a design studio, and was working a real late night. My buddy said that nights like these were like a death sentence, and I was like, "Yeah, death by design." Chan just Chan
Death By Heart I was scrolling through here, while thinking of a band name and listening too HIM!! I just suddenly thought "Ahhh! Death By Heart". Vess
Death By Missadventure i found the term in a dictionary Blink182freek
Death By Pillow FACT: 4000 americans are accidentally killed by pillows every year. AwesomeCasper
Death by Pride I heard this term on Google. Apparently it was some album by a Christian band, and I thought, What the heck? This sounds like a band name! SamVK
Death By Skittles I was having a Skittles war with my cousin and friends, and apparently I throw hard because my cousin claimed that I may have cracked a rib. That led me to wondering if somebody could die from a rib that was broken due to being pelted with small colorful candies, in my opinion that death certificate would be hilarious... anyway, I think it would be a sweet band name. Elle
Death By Sorrow I was Thinking of a H-I-M song called "Joy and Sorrow". I was thinking about death. Put 2 and 2 together, Death By Sorrow. bronnie <3
Death By Temptation I think it's cool because Temptation means:temptation - 1) something that seduces or has the quality to seduce 2) the desire to have or do something that you know you should avoid; "he felt the temptation and his will power weakened" desire 3) the feeling that accompanies an unsatisfied state temptation - the act of influencing by exciting hope or desire; "his enticements were shameless" And Dead is a dark soundinng word, so it could mean: black seduction, black desire. Stacey
Death By Tits ...I have no idea. IHaveNoBrain
Death By Verbal Suicide One day i was talkin with my band and we where trying to think of a name for our band and i just though verbal suicide because i was watching CSI or something. The Guy on the TV said death by Suicide. I just added Verbal because it sounded better and it made more sence for a band to be called that. I thought it sounded like an Indie/emo type name. Tricky Tray
Death By White I was playing HALO one day and my color was white and I sniped out a guy and then i said "Death by White." yah. Spartan 117
Death Camp Romance I saw it on CNN. I thought it would be a cool name for a speed metal band. Dave
Death Carny This is a cool band name because carnies are scary as hell, and death is pretty cool for a band name. I came up with it when I was thinking of cool band names. I wanted death in it, so the second part I would flip throught the dictionary and look for a cool word. I flipped and there it was 'carny' and 'cruel name for a person that works at a carnival'. Isaiah
Death Chain My friend thought of it because we were at a park yesterday, and she fell right over a chain. Therefore she called it Death Chain. And we both thought "What a great band name!" Saundra
Death Eagle I was talking to one of my workmates about how we should (jokingly) start a heavy metal band and when we got into names this was the first one that came to mind. It's funny because it sounds so hardcore. Tom
Death Forseen The creepiest thing one could imagine...knowing when you're gonna die, how,and why. Good name for a hardcore/metal-core band.  CrazyRockChikPR87
Death From Above thinkin of band names for my band and this was one of the contenders skates
Death From Below you could think of it as being known to be lower kind of person or below thier standards,but yet in the end youl always be stronger than them MR.BIGG
Death Haven I thought of this because a haven is a place where you're safe.. but death isn't safe.. its like the opposite.. xXTristanXx
Death In A Gift Box I just thought of it. I mean, it's ironic. You generally don't get death in a gift box. Lily Powell
Death in a nutshell Everything but death is shortened 'in a nutshell'. So I figured it would be cool, because it is another oxymoron and punk bands would enjoy being different. Rockette
Death Ministry My friend and i were watching this movie and my friend said "Dude, they're a Death ministry" I still don't know how she came up with it though. Chazm
Death Note In one of my dreams, I kept hearing Death Note in the background, and I thought it would make all cool band name. Mandie
Death Notice I think this would be a good name for a gothic band. I put this name on because I did receive one. [Ed.'s note: Prematurally, we hope.] Ryan C.
Death Of Breath Or turn it around and say "Breath of Death" or play with it some more like "Death To Breath" or even "From Breath to Death" or ... (oh well, U get the picture. It's all relavent.) Dash Murdock
Death Of The Hillbilly Stickmen By A Sea Fart This is a long band name and i like it cause it's a famous drawing that i drew in class hamp

Death To A Pop Can How many of you have stopped to bury those pop/beer cans that you crushed underfoot during a night out with the dudes? Well, now they can have the respect they deserve. And, if you don't like Pop groups (boy bands, anyone?), it could always be 'death to the trash can which is pop music.' Semblance of Normality

Deaths Army Imagine an army of grim reapers! shellby
Deathwish On A Tombstone On a site full of topsey turveys, impossible images and stuff like that, I found a pictrue of a tombstone. There's a poem on the tombstone, and if you read the first letters in each line, it spells out "F*** YOU". (that was a real tombstone by the way) The original thought was "F*** you on a tombstone", but I figured "Deathwish" sounded cooler.  Foxy-chan
Debbie Goes Mental I was talking to a friend who was retelling a story and came out with "And so Debbie goes mental and says . . ." I always thought it sounded like a good name for some punky English girl band. Beth

Deep Chowder From an episode of 'Murder, She Wrote'. Jessica Fletcher asks a friend of hers to hide a couple of young fugitives. He testily responds,"Jess, do you realize what kind of deep chowder I'll be in if I got caught aiding and abetting?" I couldn't help but smile, since I'd never heard anyone use that particular stand-in for "deep s---" before. Jonathan S.
