Names -> Cool Band Names -> I, 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.

I.Q. For any of you tiny-bopping boy bands or boy band lovers. It really a joke becuse to make a song for a boy band takes none of this. And even the when someone says boy (band) it's pollitically incorrect because a band consists of the artists play an instrument.  ziggy

Ibrox It is a football (soccer) stadium in Glasgow, but it sounds simple and powerful tonio

Ice Cream Headache You know when you get a brain freeze and it just kills so bad!? EVERYONE can relate to it!? Yeah. THAT is why it would be an awesome band name... because everyone could relate to their pain. *wink* .:Koreo:.
The Ice Cream Men Reference to a popular song at our school. Douglas Bucksworth aka D.B.

What a great band name that would be! ( i was in a band at that time making a list of band names 'cause i didn't like "The Three Musketeers". Its awesome because it doesn't give you a headache thinking about it and it doesn't copy anything. P.S. This band name is taken by my band so don't try stealing it. Flax

Now, White's out of the NFL, but Stewart and Williams still changed nicknames...now they are "Double Trouble", which won an online fan vote. JeReMy
The Identity Thieves I keep seeing these stupid commercials about identity theft. And I saw another one on tv and the name just popped into my head. So I just thought why not? It just sounds cool. Edward

The Idiots idk dane
IDK Was texting and it came to me. NICKI
Idle Threats I have a friend that's in this immature band, and they're all still in highschool. I haven't heard of this one before, and it'd be good (it is) for a punk band. Mia

Ignore My Acne I'm sure everyone has wished at least once that others would do this. It would be nice to have a band that acknowledges this unspoken wish. Alicia Ant
Igor Sikorsky's Wicked Hangover Hey, just because he invented the helicopter doesn't mean he couldn't enjoy a little imbibery every now and then... Ryan Massengill

If you don't know what Ranma 1/2 or fanfiction is, all you need know is Ranma 1/2 is an anime, and fanfiction is a story written by a person using characters and settings of a series.
