Names -> Cool Band Names -> D, 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.

Submitted by:
Diamondz My mates and I were messing about when we were a lot younger and decided to write and sing our own songs to backing music. We recorded a tape that flopped (what a surprise). Anyway this was our name because one of me mates was Dianne. I'm Monique and Daz (Darren) was a singer with all our names it made Diamondz! Monique
Diana Rising Actualy, my friend came up with it while staring out her car window at the moon, and since Diana is a moon goddess and at about 7:00 sometime in June the moon is rising, we decided that Diana Rising would be a cool band name. Cobra
Diaper Rash I was jamming with my buds but I had to stop and change my daughter's britches, and well, you get the idea. [Ed.'s note: "Diaper Rash" was also the initial name of the band played by the group Vixen in the movie "Hardbodies". How do I know? Don't ask!] Jason H.
The Diarrhea Of Anne Frank We had to read that stupid book ("The Diary of Anne Frank") in class. So me and my friends thought (The Diarrhea of...) would be an awesome band name. blake
Diarrheality I like it because it`s a name everybody can relate to. Reality affects everyone, but so does diarrhea! It`s what I call an all-encompassing name. steve preston
The Dibatags A good obscure animal name. Dibatags are a little known type of antelope native to east Africa. D. Melody Dole, MD
Dibs On The Crowd I was thinking about how kids like to "call dibs" on stuff ("I got dibs on the TV!" or something) and I got to thinking, if your band attracts the crowd's attention more than others do, why not say you've got "dibs on the crowd"? Jonaphantom
The Dicentra My band and I just believe it to be a really cool name because it means ' a heart shaped flower' or ' bleeding hearts' . Chelsea Damaris Bashi
Dick Devine The name of a well known Cook County prosecutor. Would work for a band also. Not suggestive of anything else. You didn't read more into it than that did you? :-) Buuuuuurp
A Dick Named Guy One day at lunch at school, me and my boyfriend were just yelling out a bunch of random stuff, so he yells out, "A guy named Dick!" Then I scream at the top of my lungs, "A dick named Guy!" We got a lot of weird lyrics. Quickstep
Dick Stroker and the Pipefitters Why is it cool? What's NOT cool about it? How did I come up with it? Too much pr0n. DaWormyPimpsta
Dickfore Will leave people asking "what's a dickfore?" Doochie
Dickie and the Whiz-Bangs A lady I once new named Anne Marie had the nickname "Dickie" (don't ask me why!). She told me that in the 50's, her friends would refer to a real cool car as a whiz-bang. My friend Ruben and I always thought that this would make a great name for a band. Moorpark Mark
Dicky And The Pigsty I just thought because my mom calls dad, dicky, for some stupid reason (he dicks around) and his room is a pigsty so dicky and the pigsty. it would be a cool band name for punk rock bands. Isabella
Die In A Fire I was just trying to destroy Keegan when he said "Die in a Fire" Chazm
Diesel Drop  Inspired by (the band) Snow Patrol (mispelled as "petrol" by azita). I got the name Diesel Drop. It sound priddy (pretty?) cool, I guess. azita

Different Alphabet me and my band were discusing the days in middle school and about the language we made up and I said it was a different alphabet Mike Hawk
Different Shades of Everything It sounds really philosophical and deep, and it makes you think (probably more than you'd like to). Jessie W.

Digital dog the name is kewl that is all to it Heaven
Digital Hamsters I saw my hamsters out of my cage and in my keyboards typing random letters. odie

Diglett and the Beyblades To be honest, I have no idea. John
Dihedral Just a terminology for the upward tilt in an airplanes wing. Flying? High? Sounds like a name for a band with wild guitarists. Gumby
The Dim Wits Me and my friends were thinking of a cool name for our band. My brother walks in says, "You guys still don't have a name? You guys are a bunch of dim wits." I thought it would have been cool but no one else did. I hope I hear a band named like that one day. It would be comedy! Mala
DimeSide I really like the band Nickelback, so its some sort of spoof of the real name. Chris
Dimestore Windups I was in a car with my mom talking about my band's name, and she said "Ah! Dimestore Windups!" It just stuck. It sounds cool. GreenDayFreak
Dimethyl Pussycat This was actually the name of a cat that my mom bought back in the Sixties (she changed the name, of course). When I told this story to a friend, she said it would make a cool band name. I guess so, if that band played psychedelic rock. Raphael
The Dimwits It's cool 'cause Red Foreman from That 70's Show said it. I don't remember exactly what he said, but he called the guys dimwits, and I thought that would make a kick a** band name.  Loser Hero
Din It means sudden uproar or loud noise. vince
Dingbat and the Meathead "All in the Family" fans will remember Archie Bunker's nicknames for his wife and son-in-law. Might be good for classic TV fans trying to form a band. Martha Hankins

Dinner Alone My mom came up with this one after hearing that my dad was gonna be late getting home from work. So, she said, "Not dinner alone again." :3 Douglas Bucksworth aka D.B.

The Dip-Wads This name came from my head when I thought about the guy who sits next to me in computer tech. F*ck Your Mom

Dirt for Sale In the opening of "My Cousin Vinny" they're driving through some town and there's a sign that says "Dirt for Sale" and I thought that it sounded cool. I could just imagine doing one of those promotional things for a radio station and going "Hi, we're Dirt for Sale and you are listening to WLUP". Natasha
The Dirt Salesmen on Crystal Meth On World's Dumbest, comedian Brad Loekle refers to the person in a clip (more specifically, himself impersonating the dumb driver from the clip) as a "dirt salesman on crystal meth" JeReMy

Dirty Hot Pepper Not only does this sound grotesque, but it comes from a quote from a band and the name of it as well. It is somewhat of a combination of a line that goes "Why don't you have some dirty hot sex with me?" with the name of the band that does it: Pepper. Bucky McFuddy
Dirty Metro I was wearing a shirt that had a map of the Washington DC Metro System on it, and I suggested the name "Metro". My friend added Dirty, and it didn't really work out (this was back in sixth grade), so it's still usable. Dan

The Dirty Sanchez I saw this name on south park and dodgeball and i thought it would be a cool band name me and my friends were going to use it until we found out what it means cool sounding name but it grossed us out when we found out the meaning. Want to know what it means? go to google and type in Dirty Sanchez LjPCoKl
The Dirty Santas Similar to the Dirty Sanchez. [Ed.'s note: The explanation can't be repeated on a family website. Sorry.] Santos
Dirty Southern Barstards It's different, well sort of. My mate and I made it up because we heard a band called the Dirty Northerners. We are from the south, so dirty southerners, but that don't sound write . Therefore, Dirty Southern Barstards!!! Weyyy Jon
Disambiguation Clarification that follows from the removal of ambiguity. And a sweet band name. Jacob Goodfellow
The Disappointments Just came to me.  Boobookittyf***

Disasteroids It just sounds cool and weird. Great name for a punk-band. Zeqvardan
Disasterpeice A great name I came up with through the Slipknot song 'Disasterpeice'. It would go great for a Slipknot cover band. Scott

Disco Chev's Power Hour My friend Chevy said had a group of real drunk girls convinced that he was the host of this fictional radio program. I feel it would work just as well as a band name. Kramer

Discoball Chandelier I wish I'd thought of this. I just heard this recently, it's a local band in the area where I live (so you can't use it!). I don't know what kind of music they play but I really like the name. Edward
The Disease Cool name for a punk band. Now we can see if The Cure is worse than them. Brian Kelly
Disguised As Normal To blend is to be, to be is to blend. I feel a lot of people just exist in this world and there are so many of what society sees as abnormal people, that the "normal" people now get overlooked. DJ
Dishes, Sand, Or Pets I was on a field trip to a campground and old mine where visitors could pan for gold and other minerals. A sign on the wall in the restroom there read "No dishes, sand, or pets in the sinks". Suddenly I thought how that motley assortment could make for a "cool band name"! Nicole Velocin
Dismal Aesthetics The colour that you get when a streetlight shines on concrete, the network of pipes on the ceiling of a warehouse, modern-day undead, patched jeans and scuffed leather boots. It's all dismal but it all has its own sort of strange beauty. For my future industrial/metal/goth band, Dismal Aesthetics is the only suitable choice.... Sniper Cie

Disney Jerk Reaction The term to describe the National Hockey League's decision to place ANOTHER ice hockey team in southern California based on a crappy "Mighty Duck's" fad, that lasted a whole three years. princejellyfish
Disorderly Conduct Trust me: if you are going to take on the life of a rocker, you and your fans will be hearing this a lot. What better way to advertise??? It popped in to my mind while thinking of a band name for Guitar Hero, which is something else this site helped me with. Awesome man. Awesome... Claude
Disposible Heroes Im not sure but i think its a manson song,any way i was looking for some tabs for hell is for heroes,and on a web site that pop'd up it said "disposible heroes" and i thought i sounded cool bobs hair peice
Disquite Thoughts It's just realistic. I mean everyone gets anxiety (that's what disquite means) and it leads into a thought. Even though the band I'm in rejected it, I think it has a nice kick to it. knight
Dissectional Sheep Spleen Good name for one of those crappy death metal bands who try to have gross names but just turn out sounding stupid skippy
The Distant Strangers This band name is for all the people you pass by everyday not knowing who they are. Well these people made something of themselves and formed a band -the coolest band ever. Adam James
Disterious When my friends and I were in grade school, we were planning on having an all-girl punk band. We thought of this name: it was disaster mixed with mysterious. dreamer4darkness

Distortion Like the effect on some guitar amps, I thought this would be a cool name. Jacob M.
Distortion And The 60 Cycle Buzz Im a sound tech. These are common sound problem characteristics. George Perfect
The Distribution of Pegs I was asked to hang out the washing, and i was out at the clothesline, and i noticed there were heaps of pegs on the back lines, but hardly any on the front lines. I thought the distribution of pegs on this line is really bad...so then i thought that could be a good band name...so i'm gonna suggest it to my band...Don't take it! hehehehehe...
Disturbance Of Pulse It's cool because like a disturbance in your pulse might represent someone dying; and it would be a good name for a death metal band. I was trying to think of a name for a character on a game. And this is what I came up with when I was listening to Disturbed. A7X fan
Disturbed Under License IT'S MINE, DON'T TAKE IT! I was reading this label and it said "Distributed under license by Midway games" or something like that, and I accidentally read it "Disturbed under license" and I thought, 'Oh, that's way cool for a band name.' And now, it is my band name. Josh
Disturbiance Disturb + Ambiance? hah Evan
Disturbing Behavior It sounds pretty cool. I got it from the movie of the same name. cody meier
The Disturbing Overtones Or the Ominous Overtones. Or, for an R&B edge, the Racial Overtones. The cliche's already musical; why not make music with it? Reg C泡r
Disturbing The Peace This would be a cool name for a garage band. Im in a band and the cops came when we were playing in my bassist's garages and we got a warning for disturbing the peace. So for any punk rock garage band this is a cool name. tommyboy
Disturbingly Honest I came up with this name when my friend Mary was telling me off and then she said I am just being honest and everyone else said yea disturbingly honest so I think it has a really nice edge to it. Emily
Disuasion Utrecht Dunno. Just sounds good. One of those out of the blue type deals Paul V Rom
Ditch Lillies While we were driving, a friend of mine said look at those ditch lillies. She explained that they were wild lillies that you mainly see blooming in ditches on the side of the road. This website came to mind and I thought it was worth sharing as a cool band name. RAW
The Diuretics A band so smooth, it goes right through you. (Not Yet) Pope Francis II
Divide By Zero It's the band that breaks every established rule and should not even exist....but it does. Damien Bloodlust
