Names -> Cool Band Names -> H, Page 1

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:
H/B Its hoes over bros, I got the idea from 1 tree hill, brooke's clothing line is clothes over bros or C/B and hoes just fits. skye
Habius Corpus I was sitting in Government class when they said it. It means where is the Body? in Latin I thought it was a pretty fat name  Joe B
Hadda Be Playing On The Jukebox This is the name of a poem by Alan Ginsburg, but it would also make a cool band name. The Desert of the Real
Hadesdragon Hades, the god of the underworld, the god of death. The dragon part just kinda sounded cool at the time.  dime R.I.P
Hafod Hir Hafod Hir, is Welsh for "long summer". If you are really dedicated to music and if you don't get stressed out with the whole band situation, this could be a really good name for your band. As you would enjoy it so much, it would be like a long summer. Charlie
Hail To The Blimp Tribute name to Led Zepplin but smaller. Buddy
Hail to the Chimp It was a film on an episode of Simpsons. Anything featured on the Simpsons is cool especially if its also involves chimpanzees. "Thats what you get for not hailing to the chimp" Cainantor
Hair Down There OH MAN.... Me and my friend Kevin were fooling around with funny names for anything, and i'm like how about pubic death, then we were both like how about hair down there!!! man it was hillarious we called everyone up and told them and then they threw up. Zach
Hairdressers Unite It sounds good, it's odd, and it doesn't mean anything really. The result of my habit of saying random junk when coversation gets boring. Princess Ana
Hairspray Good name for a female punk band. I came up with it while spiking my hair. Obviously. ScarletMutatation
The Hairy Artichoke And His Doughnut Groupies I think it's cool because doughnuts and artichokes together would be very good (wink, wink). I came up with it when I was trying to fall asleep and thought of an artichoke and what would be terrible with it. :P Starro*
Hairy Bath Water I just think it's cool, don't you? Toni
Hairy Billiard Bulls The discussion in a maths lesson was about spheres, and billiard balls were used as an example............no wonder i was completely lost, trying to figure what the hell a billiard bull was. Conjures up great images though Vic
Hairy Housewife My husband spent the last seven months on paternity leave with our kids. The phrase was coined in reference to him. We live in in Finland, and the Finnish version (Karvainen Kotirouva) is somehow even better. Angie Pohja
Hairy Iceholes I'm going to sound like a geek for this, but it's a reference to the show "Whose Line Is It Anyway?". Plus it's fun to say out loud.  randa
Half a Chance Because you have half a chance to make it and half a chance not to make. be cool
Half Asleep It's actually what I'm gonna name my band, once we find a drummer. *sigh* I came up with it one day in English class when I was, well, half asleep. Philip Rossin
Half Court Hooker A Miami Heat announcer called a half court hook shot by a fan for $75,000 a "half court hooker". The other connotations of the word "hooker" make it a good band name JeReMy
Half Cow/Half Japeneese It is cool because it is so bizarre and stupid. I saw a Japeneese guy farming cows in a field and i said "He's half cow...half japeneese!" It sounds the best if you say the half japeneese part in a sinister whisper. Thomas Neufeld
Half Of Infinity An impossibility, but it sure sounds cool! Ryan
Half Sheepshank its a knot we learned in the fire academy (three of our members are firefighters). if we tied it wrong, the drill instructor would make us do push-ups. I thought it would be a kick ass name for our ska band, the others agreed. the slant-eye brothers
Half Speed Ahead It's cool because it's my mom's husband's daughter's boyfriend's band's name. Wow say that ten times fast! Dude
Half wood its just cool half wood came form a half of a piece of wood Duh Steve Pc.
Half Your Mother's Meatloaf My mom brought us some home-made food and put it in our fridge. After eating approximately 50% of it, my wife announced, "Half Your Mother's Meatloaf is in the fridge." Pure poetry. Anything involving both meat and motherhood conjures up revoltingly illicit carnality -- a real attention-getter. schweitzito
Half-and-Half Okay, now the name may sound stupid, but think about it. Half-and-Half is a type of cream. Cream is a band from the 1960s. Therefore, if you like the band Cream, this would be a good tribute band name! saverock'n'roll@saverock'n'roll.org
Half-Melted Snowmen This name is good for a band that almost broke up...or is half rock and half polka or something like that. Ryan C.
Half-Way There It's cool because it reminds me of a walk I went on with my father. When I asked him, "Are we there yet?", he always said, "We're half-way there." Jake
Hall Monitors It is just a cool name i think. I was thinking of dress code violations and u always get them in the hall so then i thought of Hall Monitors.%) Madison
Hall Of Blame Kinda like the Hall of Fame, but the opposite. This is the hall with pictures of all the bad ones. Bad enough to get put onto a wall at least Daniel Kang
Hall Of Infinity (H.O.I)  the death penalty
Hallelusion Don't know if it really is cool, but "Hallelujah" + "Illusion" = "Hallelusion"... neptunevsmars
Hallousions a freaky deaky mix between hallucination and illusions yea u see what i did there!and it can go the otha way, you c not just a hat rack SaSi
The Hallucinagins I'm not sure if I spelled hallucinagins right but who gives. It is so random that it is just cool. I some drug ed. people came to my school and I asked "Do we get free samples?" and the person seriously flipped out. So then I was like "Geez, the drug ed. persons on drugs!" and it popped into my head. Pyschonic
Halo Of Azrael Azrael is the Angel of Death. His halo's got to be pretty awesome. Ben
Halycon It means 'Peace and Calm", apt name for a rock band isnt it ;) Zeltweg
Hammered Soul I came up with it because, when I was a kid, a hammer was stabbed in my chest, close to my heart. That's how I thought of the name. shane
Hamp's New Name Is Phamilto I had to chang my username because when I went on this site the computer froze and stayed frozen for 3 weeks. I'm not saying it's your fault though. You guys should REALY REALY REALY REALY be cool site of the year.  phamilto
Hampton Heath It's a street name by my house and just sounds pretty sick. matt
Hand Full of Nurple my friend pinched this guy's nipple and i asked him if it gave him a nurple and he said "a whole hand full" Jim Fields
Hand Full Of Walnuts  Jayden
Hand Lightning I was reading-yes, again-Tokyo Mew Mew volume 7 and just imagined what it would be like if I could shoot lightning out of my hand. Cool name, eh? Douglas Bucksworth aka D.B.
Hand Me Down Hang-Overs It was our band name back when we were a carefree band that didn't care at all, but then we started to care and the name was changed. Cory Calrk

The Hands Of Fate Ahh... Manos: The Hands Of Fate is probably the worst movie ever made. Saw it on Mystery Science Theater 3000 and thought, "Hey, that might be cool!" Tom
The Hands-Free Method When I was at a party in high school, there were a bunch of tapes and CD's lying around for party music. I started looking at them, and noticed one titled "Deer Calling with the Hands-Free Method". When I asked around, someone said that yes, it had been a deer calling tape, but he'd taped over it with some house music. Anyway, I thought that The Hands-Free method would make a cool name, mostly because everyone would really wonder what it was a hands-free method of. Glix Wasi
Handsome Man-Ass I just... I have no idea what to say about this one at all. IHaveNoBrain
Hanging Chads You know that whole Florida issue? I heard it one day and thought it sounded like a band. Wynter
The Hanging Chads Just some reminition of the 2000 election... :-) Probably some sort of alternative group, maybe with a political message. Andrew
Hangman's Joke It was a made up band from the movie "The Crow" with the late Brandon Lee. It sounded like a good band name for a dark metal band. Slade Craven
HangNail I use my fingers alot (obviously). My nails are a tiny bit longer then my fingers. Since I use my fingers alot, I keep getting hang nails and they suck but it sounded ok. : amel
Hangover It's the name of a local band that I helped come up with. It just is a cool word, and describes the feeling that comes out of the music. The band has a very Nirvana-esque song. That's how it feels to me, just dragging along. There's energy, but no excitement conveyed by the artists. None
Happiness It could be a death metal/emo band. It would be awesome because the name would not go with the music at all. Tyler Desi
The Happy A**es It's from Austin Powers: Goldmember (one of the best movies ever). "Your a** is happy" JeReMy
Happy Exile Well my uncle and I, were trying to think up names and finally it came, we thought of a name like some happy outcasts from their town not able to come back, so they're haveing a happy exile, so "Happy Exile" is the name.  CuddlySoftbunnie and Uncle
Happy Feet Drip  I was sitting on the table with my friend when my 6 year old sister slid a piece of paper over to me, which had a picture of a foot and water around it. At the bottom it read, "Happy feet drip! " joanne

Happy Hands Club It's the club that Napoleon Dynamite is a member of in the movie. bridget lee

Happy People From REM's song Shiney Happy People. You could do really depressing songs. nirvana11
Happy Trees Ah--a tribute to the afro-donned artist on the PBS series. pauhead
The Happy-Go-Luckies This name could either be used for a more poppy band or could be used as a misnomer for a real dark band. Either way, it works. Kevin Powers
Harajuka Girls A great name for a girls band. Although Harajuka girls are asian prostitutes, it's still a great name and Gwen Stefani has this title as one of her songs. Jingle Bells
Harbinger It means forrunner, herald or omen. So I thought it would be cool. I also like the word. Twistatooth
A Hard Act To Follow Imagine the inroducer saying, here is "A Hard Act To Follow"...pretty cool... Hehehehehe

hard line this means bad luck in england or some place and i just thought it sounded like an auesome name for any kind of band or group eme
Hard Rock Bottom We were swimming at this lake once, when somebody said "This lake has a hard, rock bottom." I thought it would be a cool name for a group. Later on, Randy Travis recorded a song called "Hard Rock Bottom." I feel like suing him. Dan Smith
Hard To Explain well..if youre ever confronted with the question of "What's your band called??" you just say.."its Hard To Explain". Then they will be like, 'why??" and youll just be like, "No..its just Hard To Explain!" Crazy stuff! eva the beaver
Hardcore Potential Hey, this is a very well established nuclear model that actually exists. I am a physicist and each time I hear a talk about that, I can not stop thinking it should be a band name! Sabine
Hardcore Suprise It's basically something so badass that will suprise the crap out of ppl from your freakishly awesome talent. Zander
Harmonious Dragmaster "The Harmonious Dragmaster" was a nickname for a British 50s-60s fighter plane. It wasn't all that good, so I assume the nickname was sarcastic! Nice Bob
Harmonis Kaos I think it's cool because these too words are opposite and one fits for a band's name (harmonic) and the other doesn't. COOL EHHH??? marshall
Harold Angels Part of a common misspelling of the song title "Hark, The Herald Angels Sing". Since the song IS about singing, I thought this would make a good band name. Shelley Potts
HARRASSSARRAH IT SPELLS BACKWARDS THE SAME AS FORWARD, AND IT HAS A MEANING: TO HARRASS A GIRL NAMED SARRAH> THE MIDDLE "S" CAN BE A LIGHTNING BOLT, GOOD FOR A BAND THAT PLAYS SEXY TYPE ROCK'N'ROLL! PATRICK
Harry and the Nostrils Sounds like a punk band! chuckulz
Harry Comber and the Marvellos A bit like those black harmony singers from 60's/70's. Henry
Harvard Boneheads I love oxymorons. IHaveNoBrain
Hasbro Smythe Just a fake name I wrote as a kid while writing a screenplay. More like a pseudonym than a group name. I don't if it would sell any albums, but the first name sold a lot of toys. Guy Dance
Haseo I got from the .hack//G.U game. It's the name of the main character. Ritsumi8888
Hasselhoff über Alles! After all, Germans love David........ Chuck Fensch
Hassidic Male Prostitutes (HMP) My friend came up with this as we were driving around our suburban neighborhood and saw some hassidic jewish men just hanging around on the street corner and he pondered what they might be up to. Brian
The Hate Filled Midgets Who wouldn't buy one of their albums? Any band with the word "midget" is cool in my book. Gober
HATEbelief I think it has a cool rock / metal touch to it since i'm really into metal. This is my current band name and i thought of it when I was in Middle school and still strong.How i came up with it is b/c that is what we believe towrds people the way people hate eachother and stuff like that. It's really hard to explain really. SpIkE
Hatebug I was looking at an exterminating company truck. random dude
Hatter Well it sounds crazy or chaotic or at least odd (since hatters went crazy long ago when they used to use Mercury in hat making) and thus might work well for a modern metal or punk rock group. M. Eng
Hatter Nearly Killed Her A popular dirty joke amongst shock D.J.s. It goes "Hatter? Nearly Killed Herr" (Get it? Hatter? Had her?) Ray Bands
Hatter's Hare Most references to Alice are just plain cool, and there are no characters better than the Mad Hatter and the March Hare: not even the Cheshire Cat. The name of the first hit single would be 'Tea with Time', after that delightful conversation from the Teaparty. Kendo Bunny
Havana Cigar jus flicked through the dictionary and hey presto we stopped on a page with this cool name. Also it sounds a bit like have another cigar yet the funny thing is noone in the band smokes cigars! Michael M
Haverchuck it is EPIC Luke
The Havering Hillbillies I made it up when I heard the word Havering in another song and my sister was telling me a hillbilly joke.  Scooby-Doo
Havocation The name just came to me one day. Basically it means the process of destruction. You won't find it in any dictionary. I think it's an awesome band name if you're into Death Metal. Chris Cutliff
HavoK haha when i was in seventh grade i wanted to start up a heavy metal band called havok. i even drew a cool album cover with the word HavoK engulfed in flames, a pitchfork sticking out of the fire, and above two glowing red eyes shining in the darkness. i was a disturbed kid. Wood
Hawking Radiation People have vaguely heard the phrase somewhere, but most don't know what it means. Also a double-entendre if you take "hawk" as a verb. Ken Blackman
The Hay Ladies A female country trio in the tradition of Dixie Chicks and She' Daisy. A play on the old Jerry Lewis catchphrase "Hey, Lady!" Countryboy
Haymarket Orphans We named ourselves after the two children, Albert Jr. and Lucy, who saw their Dad, Albert Parsons, hung during the Haymarket Riot in Chicago 1870's. They fought for the 8 hour day and against child labor. The hysteria of the courts and newspapers then screaming about "anarchists" mirrors the present hysteria over "terrorists". Original protest lyrics and rock stance honors the name without being hokey, reminding a modern world suffering from corporate globalization instead of a more proper one world union.  HaymarketOrphans@hotmail.com
Haywoode Jablome I used to use this one making prank calls in my younger days. Luke
Hazardous Claim Well, Harzardous gives you kind of an edgy feeling and Claim just sounds good with it. You could replace claim with just about anything. rockgirl
Haze Gray Name of the shade of color paint used on US Navy Ships. Also just sounds good. art b
