Names -> Cool Band Names -> G, 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.

Good Riddence Simon Ok, so here the story. So today when i was on this cite, I heard all this silverware clattering and thought “Charlie” because he loves to screw with the dishwasher. Sure enough, I come in to find the bloody, scarred remaints of the dishwasher’s contents. Just as I start to pick up that mess, I hear this “gaak. Gak. Gaaakklle. Gkdlselallaakkk. Smack smack.” so I look beside me just in time to find Zero, my adorable puppy,(named after Jack Skellington's dog in The Nightmare Before Christmas.) inhaling an unknown red thing. So when I run towards him to shove my hand down this throat (literally) and save his stupid doggy life, he sees me coming and tries to get it down his throat faster than ever, as if it’s a life or death situation and he just has to get it into his stomach or else immediate death, spontanious combustion, and the end of the world. So after shoving my hand into his slimy esophigus and pulling out a balloon covered with slimy I-don’t-want-to-know-what, I see simon, another brother who's 6, beside me, with about 50 ballons in his fist just watching the whole thing. God. You’d think that if you were 2 feet away watching your dumb but adorable puppy eat itself to a shallow grave you'd want grab it from him. Grr. So after screaming at simon, my mom and dad and sister grace and other sister claire come to see who's being murdured (and yes, I used a lot of “ands”) so then they scream at me and simon and each other, and there's just a lot of confused screaming until simon runs upstairs sobbing dramatically to his room and I say “Good riddence, Simon.” Inspiration hits and I come into the living room to type this long involved paragraph. Just think about the name tho. It’s a good name. LN awesome
The Good Things I love Fall Out Boy and their song "My Heart is the Worst Kind of weapon". In that song it says "you wouldn't know a good thing if it came up and slit your throat." yup. Thats my reason. Bob
Good With Waffles Can you picture a frontman screaming "Thanks for coming! Goodnight, we're Good With Waffles!"? It'd be awesome! I came up with it as a joke when my band was discussing names. Mac Willaert
Goodie Poets My friend and I always go over to this chicks house and they're always saying how good we are. That we never get into trouble and such. Anyways, my boy said yeah, we the goodie mob. But since that name was taken by a rap group we changed it to the Goodie Poets.  Rebel With A Cause
Goodwill Massacre Seemed like a cool heavy metal band name. I misread a sign outside a church.  glad - H!
