Names -> Cool Band Names -> E, 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:
Elevator Withdrawals My friend said he was gonna be sick if he didn't get his fix of elevator rides. Plain and simple, but Rock and Roll. Mike G.
Eleven Blazing Vicars I can't remember where I heard it, but it sounded very Indie. Flaff
Eleven Moves This band name is that of an indie hardcore band from Ontario, Canada. It was inspired by the book, "Through the Looking Glass". It represents the various choices, or 'moves' in one's life, and that as long as the right ones are made, success will follow. Stew420
Eleven Plus Two - Twelve Plus One Well 'Eleven plus two' is an anagram of 'Twelve plus one' and both of those sums total 13, With is kind of cool to me. sEdDiM
Eleventy Me and my friend have a joke, we're each other's "bestest friend times eleventy million". Junior
Eli Gojumpski and the Avenging Unicorns I came up with it because Eli Gojumpski is a moniker I adopted for doing a different musical act than I normally do. My friends started making a web comic that chronicled the three of us, and they named my character Eli Gojumpski, and named my band the Avenging Unicorns, after a joke-toy I got for Christmas.  Weegil
Elicium Elicium is the place where the dead goes to in Greek mythology. Nijo Lawrance
Elijah's Manna It was Post Grape Nuts' original name.  hamp
Elixir's Skum 2 parts:Elixir (was playing pokemon pearl. i thought wtf is an elixir) Skum (wanted something like Korn) LarvicarioZ
Elle Woods character from legally blond but this version would probably be old school style thrash/speed/death metal. Influences such as early Slayer, At the Gates, Dismember, early Fear Factory, and Napalm Death. John McAllister
Elle Woods Character from legally blonde but I thought it would be a death/thrash metal band as well. Influences from At the Gates, Dismember, Slayer, Morbid Angel with indecipherable logo. DanTheMan
Ellesar It's a crazy sounding name in my opinion, but I have to give it up to J.R.R. Tolkien, it's from the Lord of the Rings. Chris S.
Ellie's Grace It's my name and my best friend's name. I reckon it's got a nice ring to it. :) ellie
Ellipsis It's the scientific name for those three (sometimes 4) periods you put between sentences to pause them. ( ... ) I think it's neat because you're talking about naming a band for a kind of 'pause' or brief moment of silence. Jonathan S.
Elmore James Woods Random name combination. That is all. G
Elves and the Shoemakers This is band my friends and I are a member of. They use to always call me an elf because I'm short. This just kinda popped in and it sounds cool. We have awesome songs like "Penguin Man" and "Don't Say The 'H' Word". Matt
Elvis Ate My Baby I think this was sorta a derivative of "The KKK took my baby away" .. however that works Skitty D
Elvis Ate My Baby Beacuse he would eat anything! What did Elvis do before he died? He dropped a Rock and then he Rolled (get it he died on the can?). [Ed.'s note: Apparently not an Elvis fan. :rolled eyes:] turntable
The Elvis Tribe Why is it cool? Come on! How did I come up with it? From an article in Weekly World News about a South American tribe that worships and dresses like Elvis (the Las Vegas Elvis, not the early rocker Elvis) Kelly Norman
Emanon It's "No Name" spelled backwards. This is for bands with backmasked songs. Mike
Embrace The End Sounds sick-nasty, a very good name for a style of music that is usually dark (Death metal, Grindcore, Black metal) T J
Emerge From Silence the name of my first band that didnt work out somebody else can use it now but i take credit jk i thought it was cool nathan
Emerson's Picnic Inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson, the famous Transcendentalist poet. Adapated after the "Marcy's Playground" form, with a touch more philosophy to it. Aurelius Caulfield
Emesis Basin I'm an RN and I was talking to my sister's boyfriend about giving a patient an emesis basin (those kidney-shaped plastic vomit catchers)...he mentioned that it would make a great name for a band. melpuppy
Emma, Rod, Fanny, And Colin The wordplay here is revealed if one realizes that "emerod" (sounds like "Emma, Rod,") is an archaic word for hemorrhoid. That archaism is perhaps best known today through its occurrence in the "Authorized" (King James) Version of the Bible. Regina Haniger
EMO This is a cool band name because I started a club at school and called it E.M.O, it stands for Everybody Must Obey, see? EMO! It'd be cool as a band name because, you know, everybody must obey you and your band! SaMmIe
Emo At The Gig I guess it came from Panic! At The Disco. We needed a funky name and since Panic! re an emo band. We decided to do that. We changed the word "disco" to "gig" because it was still kinda obvious. The name isn't great...but it'll do. TheMuseDude
Emo Remos Just popped up. Remos came from a Mapex Drum set.  Josh Heup
Emotion Bone My sister was upset one day and my brother said, "what did i break your emotion bone?" We all agreed it would be a great band name :) Lloni
Emotion Engine It's the name of the PS2's video procesor. John
Emotion Soul Power I don't know. G
Emotional Suicide Good for a band that plays depressing trance music.......Other then that its just frickin cool.....I dreamed it up out of no where....I woke up thinking it over and over.... Mike
Emotionally Disturbed Oyster It's from an episode of "SpongeBob Squarepants." Someone said, "There's nothing more dangerous than an emotionally disturbed oyster," and I laughed and said it would make a cool band name. Da Phoenix
The Emotionless Men  JT
EMP Its a word I like that is not listed in any of the names on this list...good for punk/new wave G
Empathy For My Enemy  At the very least, we should try to experience this. But don't lose focus, still kick their butt. After all it's what they expect & deserve. Then when they're down, forgivness toward them will come. That itself is your reward. Gary Gray
Emperor Often called the Mettallica of black metal. cool name  Johnny Lewin
THE EMPRA CURSE   chriz
eMpTV A play on the cable network MTV, which would also describe the fans who still watch it. John Doe, Jr.
Empty 3 A play on "MP3", the computerized song playing thingamadoojy. Perfect for grunge rock bands waiting for their genre's comeback.  hardrock
Empty Argony Well I'm building a car, and my welder ran out of Argon. It was really annoying because I was in the middle of something. It was a Sunday and I couldn't get it refilled. So in essence, it was agony not to be able to keep working. At the same time, it sounds like an empty argument which would be one with no point except to argue. Therefore pointless. OOglebooze
THE EMPTY SUSHI just kinda came to me at a random time when i was trying to think of a new band name instead of "undoing ruins" AWSOME GUITAR DUDE
Empyreal The definition of empyreal is "Of or relating to the heavens/sky" or "inspiring awe". I was looking for the definition of sublime and I came across that... I think it'd rock as a christian band, or a band with Christian values. Janna
Emulsion It's some science term that means one liquid floating on another. --It sounds so cool though Jonathan
The Enchilada Gods I would just be excited to eat during the concert. Boy Howdy
Encroypto I was watching the movie "Apocalypto", and my friend was talking about encryptions. Then I put the two together, and it became a perfectly decent band name. big man
End Effect It's a clan name some friends back in a game called Spearhead used to have. Nick
End of Pi I was in math class when we were learning about the area and circumfrence of circles when my friend passed me a note that read: "Pi =?" And I was like, End of Pi would make a cool band name since it's nearly endless.  300 Bernard St. Girl
End Transmission It's my political rock band inspired by Rage Against the Machine. Stui
Endanera Hopesfall has a song called " The End of an Era " and that's the best song name in the world, so I transformed it. This name should be used for hard rock bands that sound like Tool, Meshuggah, Pulse Ultra, or Project 86. Trent Estrada
Endangered Feces Me and one of my friends were trying to come up with a name for a comedy band and this one came out. (NOTE: If you didn't know, feces is a fancy word for crap) White Mystery
Endearing Gandy's Music for beggars. [Ed.'s Note: There once was a service station in my neighborhood called Gandy's (Standard) Amoco. As soon as the merger between BP and Amoco became final, Gandy's shut down and was razed due to BP's desire for convenience stores.] hugh askew
Endeavor It means an attempt to do something or to strive for success. It is presently my bands name now, so don't steal it. Kick a** for a metal band, in my opinion. Steve
Endoplasmic Reticulim You have to say it really fast for it to be cool. It's a part of a cell, I think the part that allows compounds into the mitochondria, which is like the stomach of the cell that gives it power. I think. 9th grade was a long time ago. Anyway, when he taught the class, he said that he always thought that endoplasmic reticulim would be an awesome band name, and when he said it he did this little air guitar thing and made us laugh. If a really awesome band had this name, you would just make Mr. Roe's dream come true.  Shawnama
Endorphin Donor We learned in health that when u have sex, both the man and woman's brain releases a chemical called "endorphins" into your brain, and these are the chemicals that control pleasure and happiness. So i tunred to the hot gurl next to me and i asked "hey, would u like me to donate to you some endorphins?" Michael Daley
Endosperm When I was studying my Biology course, I thought this would be the name of the artist my trance productions! Ahmed Sabbour
Endowed Gigolo Gerbils Well if they were a band they would have all these groupies hounding them where ever they went. Or would they? Badboybear
Enee minee miny mo I just thought that's it's a common phrase,so yah.  Hilo stupido
The Enemy It is the name of a song from the band we are a tribute to which is "Godsmack". My wife and I thought of it in thinking of a name for our band. The name fit perfectly because the previous original band i was in suggested we become a tribute to Godsmack after learning one of their songs. I formed a new band and named it; The Enemy. Richard Saenz
Enemy Lasagna From "Word Disassociation" by Lemon Demon. Just found it way too funny to pass up. As well, a Garfield comic where Garfield wishes for a 10-pound pan of lasagna and it falls on him could be the inspiration. therealdeepblue
Enfant Terrible Bloodcape The first part means horrible child in French and a blood cape is a land strewn with blood and guts a wasteland of gore. Ashton
Engage The Enemy One of Samanosuke Akechi's lines in Onimusha:Warlords on PS2. Sounded like a cool band name. Josh:Valos
Enginehead Sort of like Motörhead...would be good for a cover group of eighties metal songs... G
English Kanigits It's in the Monty Python Movie, Search For The Holy Grail  Cassie Bean
Enigma 23 I Was Watching The Film "The Number 23" And Me&My Mates Were Starting A Band Anyways So I Thought It Would Be A Kickass Name For A Band ErinC
Enjun I came up with this one while going through old eighties music. I saw several names of random things such as Ratt, Slaughter, Winger (I know the last two are names), Def Leppard. Later I listened to "Sister Christian" by Night Ranger. The first lyric in the chorus is "motorin'" which made me think of Enjun (pronounced the same as engine). It would best fit a light-metal/pop-metal band. ryan
Ennui And The Aftermath I got bored, so I just thought of this. (Ennui meaning "boredom", if you don't get the joke.) Larry Curley Moe
enola  dadada
Enola Gai its the name of the plane that dropped the hiroshima bomb. Its a cool name for a post hardcore band with politically minded members. james

Enter the powder this is a stupid comment i invented while camping when we were making some hot chocalate for some reason i said this when my friend asked me what to do with the powder(it was followed by into the cup) but for length purposes it would just be ;enter the powder' eatingformoney
Entertain Me, Virginia Stumbling early into the morning, I realized I was basically a zombie; but instead of brains, I sought entertainment. I wanted to tell someone to "entertain me ;_;" but they were all asleep. So it kept repeating in my head. Virginia, because its a kickass name, but it could also mean a state. It makes it sound like there is a story behind it. Amara V
The Entertainment Because that's how musical groups are sometimes introduced as. Paul Bunions
The Enthesis When I was in 1st grade, I couldn't pronounce the sk8 brand, Etnies, so I just said "Enthesis". NORMAN THE STOOL
Enthropy So I'm sitting in chemistry class, and we learn that the word "Enthropy" means "Degree of Disorder". R!

Enunciated Foo From the trusty Trainiac Dictionary, a pronunciation guide for one of the words ("fool") that I thought was funny. FuNkY mOnKeY

Epedemic I HAd to copie words form the dict. in my lit. class and this word sounded cool and it means a virus that spreads so quickly that everyone has it. Kevin
EPIC Why NOT have the name Epic for your band!? It means AWSOME!  RockerGirl
Epicalody I was inspired by paramore when they said they had an epic name. Then I combined epic with melody, so there was epicelody, but I changed the e into a.  avputries
The Epigent The opposite of the Epilady, an electric razor- like device that pulls women's leg hair from the roots. An Epigent for men would pull facial or pubic hair, and that would hurt fiercely.  Peter Paul Mounds
Epileptic Monkeys On Crack From a bad day at work. As in "busier than an......"  lihpster
Epitaph of the Calf Wanted to incorporate "epitaph" into a band name somehow and the only thing i could think of that rhymed was "calf"... G_CrAcKa88

Eragonaticks My friends and I are starting a book club about "Eragon". So I thought this would be a cool band name J
Eraserhead Great movie by David Lynch. Could be the next in the line of "head" bands, like Motorhead, Radiohead, Portishead... McAlister
Erdm? ...is german and could be translated as "subterrestric furniture" or so. it is a pretty decent and euphemistic description for a coffin, isn't it? came in contact with that group in my punk era... alex
Eribus A friend of mine had a online game character named from this. He got it from his friend's cat's name. Good slogan, "Name your cat Eribus!" haha cracks me up every time. sundrop
Erica Padgett I always think band names are good if they're just somebody's name - simple yet effective. I picked this one becuase she's well fit and it's a cool name anyway! inkybus

Escape Artists' Trophy This is supposed to be my bands' name, but the name doesn't suit our punk music. It implies that every escape artist win freedom, and freedom is their trophy. I think this is cool for anti-politics type of bands. eubel the freak who owns a company
Escape From Home Sometimes you want to. techthisout
