Names -> Cool Band Names -> H, 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:
He Dead It's from Family Guy, when the KFC worker from Kentucky told Peter the Colonel Sanders was working that day, the reason was that "he dead", a grammatically incorrect way of saying "he is dead" JeReMy
He Fights Formica I heard it on a radio program's quiz game in which the answer was the T.V. series "The Rifleman". One of the clues was "He fights for Micah", which listeners misheard as "formica". opinion
He Said Leave I got it from a male librarian who kicked out an unruly teen out of the library. Paul Bear
Head Cheese I heard this guy on the radio ranting about how much he can't stand head cheese. And you just can't go wrong with head cheese. Prince Dementia
Head Cleaner I thought this up one day when a friend of mine (who's CLUELESS about music) flipped thru my tapes and ran across my TDK head cleaner. She goes "what's this?". And I say, in a brilliant blinding flash of silliness, "oh! that's Head Cleaner. You haven't HEARD them yet!?" Still not getting it, I shove the tape in my car player...and the rest is history. Head Cleaner is the COOLEST band name ever. However, I don't recommend it for an all-girl band. It just doesn't sound real edifying, you know. Chris McCrea
Head Lettuce Always thinking of money. Lettuce is slang for money or cannabis. Bill
Head To Door I was listening to some song, and i thought thats what they said, and it just sounded cool Nick
HeadBanging Jesters When we had a hat day at school once, I wore a Jester's hat with bells. If I ever really create a band, we'll be the ones that will push to the extremes to be funny and different, so wearing Jester hats and other such strange head-coverings would be an easy way to do this. In Geometry class, one of my friends wanted me to jingle the bells, so i just banged my head as if I had been listening to Metallica, and thus the name Head-Banging Jesters was born. Artsy Dude Chris
Headbanging Jesus  IHaveNoBrain
Headchange Me and a friend would always say that we needed a headchange when things weren't going our way during a jam session and it always did the trick. Chad Perry
HeadHaunchman I was listening to the Icabod story tape with my friend, and we modified the ghosts name a little, then that was the name. K. Dog
Headless Chickens  James
Headless Monkey I saw my hamster sleeping and her head was tucked underneath her and she looked headless then came the name Headless Hamster, sounded weird put monkey and THERE WE HAVE IT! Amel
The Headless Norseman How I once misread "The Headless Horseman" when I saw it in some wildly decorative type font. Regina Haniger
The Headless Pink Duckies The family was sitting down to eat dinner and my 10 year old nephew came into the room and said, "hey, look at the headless pink duckies" and held up a group of 3 pink peeps (shaped like ducks) still attached together, missing their heads. Nobody knows how this happened.  Carolee
Headlines Most lyrical lines originate ( hopefully ) from the head, and top of the musical Billboard should be the . . . . . . .stage gear could involve linear design headwear or glowstick bandanas . . . yeahh cool Carl S
Headphone Injuries I was looking through old Sick Puppies ( my favorite band ) albums and I found this EP. Also if music is your only outlet for being bullied this would work well. I can also hold several different meanings if you decide to pick it. Bass girl
Headstock This would be a good name for a band that is thought about to much. Ryan C.
Headstrong Pony You REALLY don't wanna know, except I'll give you a hint anyway. Mix Trapt's "Headstrong" and a My Little Pony music video, and getting salt-hyper off of Bits And Bites. Douglas Bucksworth aka D.B.
Healing Bullet Bullets cause damage as we all know. If only we could replace damaging bullets with healing bullets, maybe then would we be living in a safer place without having to worry about some dumba** with a gun. Jolie
Healthcare Of Alaska It's the old name of my hardcore band. We were just sitting outside of my guitarists house really high, and our backup vocalist just said "HOA" and I asked "What does that mean?" and he told me Healthcare Of Alaska. We dropped the band name for whatever reason. Chompy
heap Heap is Old English for 'band'. jeremy
The Heaping Helpings I used to bartend with a guy who made up song lyrics with me to mock the guests. Most of the people found it hilarious. When we began the mockery, we would tell the subject that they were about to be served a heaping helping of crap. Thus, we became The Heaping Helpings, kind of a shot at ourselves. Cougar Pines
Hear It Your Way It's cool because then you wouldn't have to worry about misheard lyrics!! Melisse
Hearingaids After many years of loud music, you'll need one. Why not a band name?  Tracy
Heart & Soul  ron pollard
Heart Attack Heroes  Chris!!!!
Heart Beats Of A Dead Poet We came up with it, as a tribute to my friend, who died in a car crash and was really good poet.  dillon ramanauskas
Heart Full Of Ashes. I came up with H.F.O.A one night while I was depressed. Of course I was smoking. I was flipping ashes into glass heart ashtray. The heart was full of ashes. Heart full of ashes could mean a lot. But to me, it means it's nothing but ashes and dark from being broken so many times. Kellie
Heart of 666 Okay I was listening to HIM and this came up. it would be cool name for gothic pop/metal band Zeqvardan
Heart Of Darkness I was looking through my PS games; and I saw one called "Heart Of Darkness".  Shaheen
Heart Of My Bottom Part of a quote by one of my favorite cartoon stars (lol). The full quote is "This song comes from the heart of my bottom." Junior
The Heart-Broken Army I came up with it while writing a song. It's a band of guys that got their heart broken. So they rock out in pain! Iwegs!
The Heartbreak Of Psoriasis This was very popular during the seventies with the Tegrin shampoo commercials. "The Sonny and Cher Show" also did a soap opera parody set in the old Roman Empire, with Cher playing Queen Psoriasis.  Ideal
Heartbreakers With Broken Hearts it sounds very original.. what comes around goes around! coolest
Heartfelt Suckerpunch Most people don't punch other people with out a strong emotional reason. But then again some do. The incredible Myself

Hearts in Spades Maybe this band plays their gigs at casinos? RevengeFromMars YouTube
Hearts of Ice You could think of a blue, heart shaped chunk of ice or a cruel group of musicians... MUAHAHAHA!!! ~:D AmyHuang
Heatstroke Heatstroke just sounds badass. Came up with it when I was doing a project on heat illness. Cailean
Heaven Wears Leather First name was the Scoundrels. But a band in a bar Rahway NJ had that name. Go figure. So I just thought of Heaven Wears Leather. Laszlo A, Voros
Heaven's Devils It's just like the all time famous biker gang "Hell's Angels" ...but better smac
heaven's rebuke after watching bleach anime..... BANGKAI!!! xicon7lead
The Heaves My favorite band is The Cramps. I figured this name would be a fitting tribute to the coolest Psychobilly/Punk band ever. Think Elvis on crack. 'Nuff said! Den E
Heavier Than Heaven It's the title of an autobiography on Kurt Cobain, but I thought it would make an awesome band name too. Elius

Heavy Duty Resistance It was a cool and catchy saying on the side of a hair dryer box. j to the p

Heavy Mental The phrase on the disc of the "School Of Rock" movie soundtrack. GlamRockNinjaLord
Heavy Metal Detox I saw some medicine with the same name and thought it would be a good band name. Heavy Metal or Anti-Heavy Metal, I really have know idea. Eric B.

Heeby Geebys How many times have you heard that something gives you the "heeby geebys"? Mike Lydic
Heh Heh It got voted best band in our school cuz of its names. Our band's songs are supposed to be funny, but its so stupid, that its funny. So were just like, heh..heh...yeah, um, ok? and thats where it began.. The WEez
Heiliges It means "sacred" in German. But being German makes it cool enough. Jeff
Heiny Gore Rage Comes from CKY's "IDR-The video album" dvd, when it's 3 am and Bam and Deron are driving around trying to think of names for horror films. This is my favourite one, but they also come up with "Cut Butt 3", "Heiny Fun 2" and "Driving Miss Daisy 1". Alice
Helen Yum In Markham I tried to ask "Siri" (that robotic "person" to talk to on my iPhone) what was the common name of "Helenium amarum", a flower in the sunflower family. The common name is something like Bitter Sneezeweed. Siri couldn't help, since the only thing she made out of "Helenium amarum" was "Helen Yum In Markham". Then I thought, ah, that could be a good Cool Band Name! Marcia Zarwetten-Grassi
Helious you know, greek for the sun...but the -ous english suffix instead of -os. A cool name because I'm not really sure what it'd mean :) maybe "of the sun"??? Jonio
Helium Head  don't know i was just bored and thought of it. a punk rock freak
The Hell Cats' Helpers Helpers is a pun on "hell purrs". D. Melody Dole, MD
Hell In A Handbasket Quite an oxymoron? I do believe so. Handbaskets often contain good to great things, not Hell. So I figured it would be a cool band name because they tend to be oxymorons. Rockette
Hell-Bender Turbulance It sounds cool, and it makes you think of insane riffs and endless solos. Dexter-B-Benjamin
Hellbound Someone told me I was going to Hell, once. I never believed him, so I keep joking about it, then Hellbound just popped in my mind. Corey F'n Stockton
Hellenistic Euphoria It's an oxymoron, hellenistic being Hell and euphoria being a place of great pleasure. it sounds good. It could be reversed as well, Euphoric Hell. My band might use it, we havent decided yet. Rod
The Helliconians Mount Helicon (note single "l") is the place where, according to Greek mythology, Apollo and the Muses lived. The band name here with the doubled "l" would not only be typical of many misspellings in band names, but it would denote a dark twist on "Helicon" through the "Hell-" part of the spelling. Regina Haniger
Hellmary I think it would be fitting for a goth-metal group. The phrase that is said as attonement for sins in the confessionals of the Catholic church. NO CATHOLIC PRIEST JOKES PLZ!!! White Mystery
Hello Hayden Name of a friend of mine. Just thought it sounded kind of cool. vee
Helltide Well actually my friend made it up he had a neighbour called Heltai and it sounded cool so HELLTIDE!!!!!!!!!!! The Anomality
Helmet Headed Anchormen Just reminds me of the rugz that all these T.V. news anchormen are wearing nowadays. What kind of helmet head were you thinking of? These rugz would offer superior head protection from flying beer bottles if they really suck and get booked into a Idaho redneck bar. Then they could jump on thier Japanese mopeds and make their escape. badboybear
Help! I Have A Tapeworm  I was trying to create a stupid/gross name.  Pitch

Her Masters Voice My brothers Heavy Metal band back in the 80's. She only responds to her Masters Voice. Lost and Forgotten
Her-money I was in my art class and the teacher told us to write what was on the board. It was about some guy that it was an artist and all of his work he always done it with harmony. My friend wrote "her money". So I thought it was pretty cool for a band with girls or a girl singer. edith herrera
Herbal depression it was an ad from google on your page...laugh out loud Crazydoodle
Here 4 JC Well it means you are here for Jesus Christ and will stand up for him. I think it would be cool. me

Heresy It means someone who worships false idols that our outside the usual Catholic religion. Alex N
Heretic Molly Thw word heretic is someone who rebels against the accepted church. Molly comes from "Molly Mormon" so it's kind of an oxymoron, but not entirley. Preston
The Herman Munsters Because I like the show. Darn, darn, darn! Eddie
Hermes' Lyre Everyone thinks it's Apollo's, but it's Hermes'! Here goes: Hermes killed a turtle, then strung 6/7 strings of sheep gut across the shell. Then, he taught himself to play it, and Apollo heard him. Apollo traded the rights as the god of shepherds to him and a gold staff, and got the lyre in return. Cpt. Neeb
Hermits Fishing For Tacos Hermits are weird, so i would assume they would fish for weird things. I used this band name for a cd project I needed to do for music class, I got an A so I guess it's alright Morty Fiend
Hermy And The Pioneers.  Brent
Heroes Playing good music means kids look up to you as heroes. NICKI
Heroic  enemy909

Herpes Doesn't everyone just want to have it! its the most awesome STD around! Mating like Matan (thats Natam backwards)
Hertz Donut Why not name a band after a childhood prank in which a kid's nipple is twisted after being asked if he wants a "hertz donut". Can also be called "Purple Herbie" or "Tittie Twister". j.c.
Het Dragoduby This is definitely a name for a singer...it just rolls off the tongue! Probably would be a good detective's name too...It was a scrambled letter puzzle at the movies for "The Bodyguard" Thom1Cent

Hezikiaha's Illness There was a king of Isreal in the old-test named Hezikiah: he had an illness. There's a whole big story behind it, but mostly it just sounds cool and some people can't pronounce it ( hez-i-ki-a, sound it out kids) God-Squad
