Names -> Cool Band Names -> D, Page 3

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.

DeEvolution Well this just sounds insanely hardcore for a band name  ty fighter
Def Bac It just sounds cool. A friend and I were going to start a band, and we were trying to thing of a name. We were in school at the time, and I looked down at one of my tests that I got back (I got a 100). The last six answers spelled 'DefBac'. We thought that it was amazing, but we decided to go with a different name. Ricky
Defeating KwaZulu Ummm, i like zulus and theres a state in south africa called kwazulu natal, and the english beat the zulus in war, so the end was near! Bill
Defecating On Society What a great name for a Punk band! My friend used to always say, "Man I've gotta defecate." And, well, I hate today's society so I figured why not defecate on it. KT
Defective My friends who started this band was really intrigued with the idea of coming out and yelling, "Hey everybody, we-are-Defective!!" And if they happened to have any kind of incidents with any of the equipment they would have an excuse. Xammy
The Defective Theologist Imitators That's what me and my friends did to "Collins Shorter Dictionary" while playing a sort of a word association game. It went kinda like this: Collins- call- phone- phoney- imitator; Shorter- shortage- deficiency- defective; Dictionary- book- Bible- theologist... Some rearrangement, and voila! A possible name for some metal band! Lulabel
The Defenestration of Prague History term!! Defenestration means to throw somone or something out the window. In 1618, Protestant revolters threw two Catholic officials out a window. They were saved by landing in a pile of horse crap. My History teacher actually will say, "Oh, this sounds like a (punk/pop/death metal/etc.) band's name!about history terms" all the time. We all agreed with him that this sounded like a hard core punkish band. My band was going to use it; but on myspace, there is a band with this name. Otherwise, I would say go for it. LizO
Defiance This sounds like either a metal band or a punk band name, mostly punk because thats what punk rockers supposedly do...defy! Maximus
Defiant Bonds I got it from a USA Today sports headline for a story about Barry Bonds, who's been accused for taking steroids on his quest for Hank Aaron's home run record. He is defiant that he's never taken any. Nevertheless, a grand slam band name. sports
Defining Definition It's like finding another word for synonym AwesomeCasper
Definitely Charlie Babbit Heard this was a band somewhere in Chicago in the mid 90's. Love the name. From Rain Man of course. Mr. Tinkles
Deflated Ham One day, while discusing the giant inflatable ham I had made....  Rae
Deformation It'd be for those whom listen to punk/rock, alternative and metal, cause we're all a deformation from perfect, and how they want us to be. The Wonderous
The Deformed Chicken Nuggets Well, for cafeteria lunch today, it was chicken nuggets. My enemy Samantha gave me a nugget, and I said, "Hey! You only gave me that chicken nugget because it was deformed!" QueenOrangeSoda
Deformed Spongebobs I Love The Name Dead Kennedys So I Made A DK Type name. Adjective, Deformed, Noun of a silly person, spongebob. BTW plural of spongebob sounds funny Some Guy
Defro It'slike, "DEF", as in can't hear, and it suggests "DEATH ROW". kearnage
Degenerated Fire Water A combo of Degenerate, a Blink 182 song and Fire Water Burn, a Bloodhound Gang song. It sounds like something out of a sci fi movie. Razorblade !6
Degenerated Fire Water Something that just popped into my head. Sounds like an Offspring-type band. Kixxy 6
The Degeniritz It a play on the word "Degenerates"! MAttHEw
The Degrassi Dropouts As a tribute to any former cast member of Degrassi Jr/Sr High or Degrassi :TNG who sang or was with a band during their time on the series. Kevin Smith (who has appeared as himself on many episode of the latter) would be prud. Canadian
Dejavoodu Its the ultimate combination of two criptic and mysterious things known to man!  Tongan
Delicious Fire Don't ask! G
Deliver Us From Invisible Men It's an inside joke between one of my friends and I. Basically there's this prayer we made up, and the last line is "Lead us into nightmares, and deliver us from invisible men." LordBlumiere
The Deliverance ever heard of the movie? eric
Delta 32 It's actually a shortened name for a DNA mutation that gives you a natural immunity to AIDS... ya, I have no life... DNA mutations make cool band names. Elle
Demand Destruction Some economists say that if gasoline prices hit $3.50-$4.00 per gallon, oil consumption in the US will decline sharply. I'm not sure if I agree with that, but the term they use for that concept is way cool. And, it has a great double meaning: either the economists' concept or as a call to incite devastation.  Ex-East Sider
Demented avengers A cool lyric from Pink Floyd's "Animals". I was listening to it when I came across this part of the site.. Russell
Demented Half Spring I broke open a mechanical pencil once and took out all the pieces. There was a spring, which I promply launched, and then broke in half. I said, "Hey, look at my demented half spring". My friend said "That sounds like a gymnastics move". I said, (everyone?!) "Or a freakin' sweet band!" J-Rod
Democracy in Argentina Some names just sound damn good.  johnny
Demolition good for a heavy metal band name. Scott Hess
Demolition Cat For a non-existent band (as amiright is now telling us), it was pretty clever to get an artist summary on amiright and seduce some unsuspecting posters into forming "combined groups" entries with it. There is an eerie sort of "coolness" to that. Happy Halloween! Gretchen Wieners
Demolition Men "Demolition Man" is a hit by The Police. It was later covered by Grace Jones and even Sting himself. A classic sci-fi thriller with that name starring Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes and Sandra Bullock came out in the autumn of 1993. So on top of all this, the name "Demolition Men" seemed like a cool name for a band. It has a sci-fi air of mystique to it.  Violator of the Verbal Morality Act
Demon Spunk Demon Spunk, heavy name for a heavy rock band. Could be taken either as the bastard children of a demonic creature or a sort of drink no one wants to taste. Tri

The Demonic Orange Whiskey Hounds Random! G
DemonStrayShun Here is a DEMON who will make you STRAY from people who will SHUN you for your contribution in individuality and equal rights. Cookie

Devil In A Blue Dress (Note To Scout) This may have been a movie title, but it was first the name of one of the best and most high energy songs to come out of the 60's. It was done by Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels. Look it up, you'll enjoy. And yes, it will answer your question "Why does a devil wear a dress?"  Gary Gray

After that I was determined to start a band with that name but I got to be about 13 and lost hope of ever having a band. That's really too bad!  Sarah

Devouring The Unicorn Me and my friend were decided to start a band and so we were looking in a magizine for random words and phrases to use and we saw a picture of Mobe with an evil grin on his face holding a blue unicorn piniata next to his face and my friend exlaimed "Dude!!! that s**** is devouring a unicorn!!!" But we later found out that some guy in canada had a band named devouring the unicorn. led_object45
Dewey and the Decimals The Dewey Decimal System Nich
Dewey Dell & the Vardamans This name comes from William Faulkner's novel "As I Lay Dying". Dewey Dell is kind of hoey, and Vardaman is kind of retarded. I think it's pretty cool. tommytaco
Dewey, Screum, and Howe, Inc. Their songs are inspirational, as they tell us all about, "Do we screw them, and how?" [Ed.'s note: Have you ever heard of the joke about the law firm of "Dewey, Cheatham and Howe"? Same joke.]  FiFi

Diabetic Opposition I once took a history course in high school, and the teacher, for some reason, kept making malapropisms. Therefore, she once said that Hobbes and Locke were diabetically opposed. Raphael
Diableries of the Apocalypse I was searching for some big words one day on AOL Thesaurus, and I got this phrase. Diablerie is an evil person, and the Apocalypse is the end of the world, so naturally they fit together. And since the initials are D.O.A., it works even better. Perfect for a Marilyn Manson/Slipknot-type band. Freedom Rock
Dial Triple Zero Sweet name for a metal, thrash or just tweaked out band. I think it was the name of an FMX video. Anti-This
