Names -> Cool Band Names -> D, Page 5

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 Dividing Line This is a name for a Genesis song, and I thought it's perfect for a rock band! Joey Thomas
Divine Infestation Cool name....Christian Death Metal! Belinda
Divine Tourniquet I came up with this because a Tourniquet is an object that stops someone from bleeding out and /or stop the flow of blood. And well a tourniquet really is divine for someone in need. BunnyKiller
Diving For Pills Sex and DRUGS and Rock and Roll, baby!  Drake Cahill
The Divorced its kind of a weird story a bunch of kids in my neighbourhood their parents were all getting divorced and then i just thought of the Divorced.....it would be a good name for maybe a metal band..who are p***ed at their parents. T-Bone
The Dixon Pussies Sounds like the name for some sort of alternative "homespun"-ish combo, with a double entendre in the name. Regina Haniger
Dizzolving This band name just. Sounds. Awesome. SamVK
Dizzy Fat Again, the double adjective thing is pretty cool. And just thinking about what this could mean makes me laugh Rae
DJ Cashew Really, it's an inside joke. Someone I know has a nickname, DD. Easy corruption to DJ, and I added on Cashew because it's another nickname for DD. One-man band. The lead singer should be a perv... therealdeepblue
DJ Pee Pants A demon/rapper/old man/cow from Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Just life imitating art. paco
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? It's the name of the story that the movie Bladerunner is based on (by Phillip Dick). But it also would be a pretty cool band name. The Crow

DOC Originally stood for Dorothy On Crack. Long story having to do with an unfortunate "Wizard of Oz" impression. Rosie
Docked in a Serious I found on Tumblr that someone posted the "YouTube automatic caption" version of characters from the Ratchet & Clank games. The names were Catches, Tank, Captain Corkers, Taiwan Apogee, and Docked in a Serious. JeReMy
Doctor Octopus I was trying to come up with a good band name -- going through doctor this, doctor that. My 4-year old son had recently watched Spiderman 2 & yells out, "How about Doctor Octopus!!!" I thought it sounded catchy & am still considering it. Mike
Doctors Went to the doctors. NICKI
The Dodecahedrons  The Dodecahedron has been a source of metaphysical interest for at least 2000 years. Like a crystal or gem, its facets and symmetries compel our eyes and hearts to observe life more deeply. Some have believed that the Dodecahedron represents an idealized form of Divine thought, will, or idea. To contemplate this symbol was to engage in meditation upon the Divine. Today many people believe there is a lost knowledge residing in the past, slowly being rediscovered. It is known that figures like Pythagoras, Kepler, and Leonardo, among many, were educated in these Sacred Geometries, and held many beliefs about them and their role in the Universe. tH
Dodge Factor my lead guitarist came up with it. It means when their is a 'f****y' chick and she just doesn't 'cut it' you call her 'dodge factor' meaning she's 'not good' and to.. STAY AWAY !!!!! Lee
Does Not Compute A band whose name is so weird, it confounds computer systems. John Phillips Screwdriver
The Dog Ate My Panties Or The Dog Ate My Underwear, depending on who's in the band. Once I couldn't find any underwear (I was like 4 at the time). I had to go pantyless to ballet class. I was remembering that and I was all like "Haha, the dog ate my panties that day.", which is doubly funny because we didn't have a dog then. rachel
Dog K-Rap Well actually my dad came up with it while I was trying to think of band names imagine this: "Hey guess what! I am soooooo lucky I have Dog K-Rap on my shoes!!" firend looks at person weirdly "What did ya step init ? Dont worry it happens"...... Kali

Dogfood Gangstas It's from the comedy site www.homestarrunner.com. In one section, the character Strong Bad answers people's E-mails, and "Dogfood Gangstas" is the result of his misunderstanding of somebody's gangsta-esque closing. It cracked me up, and then I thought, "That's a band name right there." Da Phoenix
Doggy Style Circus I was working in Uncle Sams Naval Canoe Club and different departments of the ship got bombarded by massive amounts and work. I made the comment to a friend that as much BOHICA that is going on today it looks like a Doggy Style Circus act. TonyDaProducuh

Dogs of War I was looking at my dog. And then I started to think about tings that will sound cool with the word dogs in it. So I came up with Dogs Of War. It's cool because It is unique. There are no bands with that name, and it sounds catchy. Sean
Dogs On Caffeine It just came to me while observing canine behavior. Dogs would be truly scary if they were on caffeine. Robin Westgate
Dolarhyde  It is from RED DRAGON. Francis Dolarhyde, a friend of Hannibal the Cannibal. He also did some vicious things {he bit the tongue off a reporter, and gutted him with a linoleum knife}.

Don't Eat The Dead Ones I lived in Louisiana for a while, at my first crawfish boil my friends told me when the crawfish come out if the pot and on the table don't eat the dead ones. Odd cause I thought they were all dead after boiling. But I was told the ones that have straight tails and not curled tails after cooking were dead before they hit the pot and would make me sick. I thought it was funny, and its been my bands name ever since. Vinny Rose

Donkeystrength It's from Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Someone was asked about an "animal-based unit" and the guy needed a lifeline for a question that was clearly about horsepower.
