Names -> Cool Band Names -> I, 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:
Immigrant Kids Me and my friend were bored in English so we were staring at the books on the shelf. One of the books was called Immigrant Kids, and he thought it would be a cool name for a band, especially a band composed of white guys trying to rap. penguin
Imminent Prospect It means something good will happen soon. phil
ImModium i think its cool because u dont need phrases to come up with a band. U can just make up a cool name like(Aiden,Atticus,) well AT LEAST A Unique name. I cam up with it BEFORE THE ANTI-LAXATIVE WHICH IS SPELLED...........Imodium. But i use unique names  Jake Austin
The Immortal Millionaires This sorta started one day when I was watching Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. I started calling it "Who Wants to Be an Immortal Millionaire" because I thought it sounded cool. Immortal millionaires. Subject to Change
Imp Slapper Ever wondered what it might sound like to slap an imp? thought so beavis
Impact Proof I was looking on the back of a trapper and it said "Impact Proof" on it. It kinda reminded me of music blaring on your speakers! CyberSnake
Impala Scholars Like many rappers, these guys know everything about the '64 Chevy Impala. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Impaled At The Drugstore While ranting about all the pretentious phrase-ish band names (like "Every Time I Die") in rock, I came up with this off the top of my head and really liked it. It's a perfect name for an Emo band. I can hear the tortured teenage angst already. Nerrticus
Imperfect Stranger Not too sure how i came up with it maybe from the perect stranger album ny deep purple. Im trying to come up with something different for my new band, and kinda like the play on words. doug
The Imperial Entanglements Something Obi-Wan says during the original Star Wars movie. Apparently it's best to avoid them. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Impetuous Youth From the Simpsons episode where Bart has karate lessons. Bart complains when Akira, the chinese instructor assigns the class a book to read instead of teaching them karate, and Akira's response is "Ahhh, the impetuousness of youth. First you must fill your head with knowledge, then you can break ice with it". Also inspiration for the name 'Ice Break Akira' metaxus
Imported Air I took it from a line in Blondie's song Maria. I just think it would make a great band name. The band members would dress stylishly and their music would be stylish as well. Edward
Imported From Germany Because it is. Hannah
The Imposing Fathers My best friend is in a band, and the front man's father is always poking around at their rehearsals, twirling knobs and adjusting microphones and generally being a nuisance. This was suggested to one of the members who was tiring of the band's current name, but was never used.  Jimmy's Dreamgirl
Impulse I was flicking through the dictionary when I saw Impulse. It means to do something totally spontaneously, cool or what! Jo Weaver
Impune I got this off a coin. It's Latin for "to do something without consequence". Cool or what? [Ed.'s note: It's actually means 'unpunished'.] Dan rocks!!
In Case of Emergency I looked at a sign that said in case of emergency at a concert I went to and are band decided for that name  Keagan
In Case Of Fire Just imagine all the possible endings, ICOF jump out a windiow or summit like that PS: There is actually a band called this! Doug
In Close Relation I came up with it when me and 2 of my cousins were tryin' to name our band. In Close relation shows the connection between the band members. BLAZE
In Defiance It says what where all about,,defying everyone who said that our instruments would never get us anything and that we should become doctors,,,We are In Defiance,, and our thrash/black/heavy metal says it all... Tim
In Love With The Stars Who says love should be limited to people? Wolfsong
In Loving Memory This was a cool band name. I didn't create it, but a group of friends did after my boyfriend died and and decided "In Loving Memory" they would dedicate their band name to him and no one seemed to have In Loving Memory which was the last name they chose as a joke but hey it worked and they broke up after a year but hey at least they did a couple shows before they did so! Kate
In My Pants I thought it was funny because when someone introduces your band, they say, "Now the band, In My Pants, will play." or something like that. Holly
In One Piece Well there's a crappy boyband called busted and this is the opposite of busted. Alternativel;, All In One Piece Az
In The Sink I just thought 'In The Sink' would make a great band name. Well, for our school we have a talent show every year, and our teachers came up with an act and a dance. They named their band 'In The Sink' and I thought that name could make a reasonable name.  jaylo
In-the-sink I read in MAD magazine once that Justin Timberlake's grandma thought this was what "NSYNC" was. GlamRockNinjaLord
Inability Not To Suck I read on a message board a topic called What is wrong with Chris Rix? (former Florida State quarterback) The best response, by far, was Inability not to suck. It's cool because it's a double negative that says that the band does, in fact, suck. Tom
Inanimate Anemones Anonymous Actually my friends called their trivia team that. Not only is it hard to spell, but try saying it five times fast.  Persephone
Inbred Abberation I read it on some website a while ago. An abberation could mean: "A disorder or abnormal alteration in one's mental state." Inbred would just mean that you were born with it. Johnny
The Incandescent Llamas The Spanish for "open flames" is "llamas incandscentes," which can also be translated as "Incandescent Llamas," if you're perverse. I saw it on the back of a can of cleaning spray. Red Tim
Incas of Emergency From a sign seen on engrish.com. It was supposed to say "In case of Emergency", but the translator got it wrong. Sylvia Viridian
Incas of Emergency I saw it on a Japanese fire map, and thought it would be kinda cool on the marquee, you know, Incas that only respond to major disasters and such. Mazotti
The Incas Of Emergency Saw it on engrish.com as a piece of badly spelled Japanese-English (In Case Of Emergency). Just really sounded cool. Franklin Delano Romanowski
Incessant Peppermint A wordplay on the song "incense And Peppermint" by Strawberry Alarm Clock, because the freshness of incessant peppermints would last forever.  Odie Garfield
Incestation Just came from a random yet sick phrase mixed with anther idea for a name Infestation.........Incest......fun for the whole family Sound_Sham
Incline Out Saturn LOOOK AT IT Jesse Anderson
Incognizant It means "lacking knowledge or awareness; unaware." johnny's girl
Incomplete Dominance Well, it just plain sounds cool, but its literal meaning is when two alleles (visible traits from genes) have no dominance in each other, so when the 2 genes are put together, their features combine. For instance, when a red flower and a white flower have offspring, it will be pink. Sorry, that explaination was lame. Dillon
Inconspicuous Flowers It sounds enticing, and the chicks like it. I misheard a line from a play once, and that was what I thought I heard. The line was really, "prospective powers," from some guy called Edward Albee. Moonvolt
The Incredible Five-Cent Sugar Rockets It's a type of modle rocket, instructions here: http://ai.chem.ohiou.edu/~tip/specific/nickle.html Makes me think of a band like Neutral Milk Hotel. alchemist
Inde Inde is an old Apache word that means "The People" I learned that in school, and I thought, "Man that would be a cool name for a band 'Inde'" If I ever start a band, that's what I'm going to call it. Mack the Knife
Indearing Ghandi A play on "endearing" Indira Ghandi. Mispelled on purpose because the endearment happens from the inside. Mahatma
Indecent Incident We thought this name would look cool on a CD cover, since the words look so much alike, it would be hard to tell what it says at first. This also seems like a name that a very cool logo could be made up for. Kate & Jim
Indecisive Awareness It's just a random name that means "Deciding on Awareness" or DOA. It's not from a show or anything. So that's just too bad. Samula
Indefinition No one knows what it means. hehe. Kadooshka
Indian Head The name of a town in Maryland. I was looking at my dad's road map and saw it and was like "What the heck?" Lol. Jake
INDICA Pot variety Jack
Indieology   Md
Indonesian Shoe Lasers A mishearing of my best friend's explanation of the ending to a video game. G
Indra's Fist Me and Tirza came up with it. Chazm
Industrial Deafness There's this advert on the UK sports stations about Industrial Deafness and i always think it would make a good thrash metal band name. crazyj
Industrial Park Because It has that posion feeling. Well When I was coming home from LAX I saw a street called Industrial. And there was a park beside it. That's how we got it Andrew
Industrial Stench  I thought this would be a cool name for a metal band. I went past a factory in a car. Lizzard Lady
Industrial Yellow Me and my friend have worked alot of construction jobs and while we were traveling around the US remodeling hotels with just me, him and our boss living and working in the hotels the only the thing that kept us from going crazy was our guitars. We would jam till we passed out and wake up work another 18 hours or so and all of the tools we and our boss had were yellow (industrial yellow) and after staring at that color all frickin day you start to see it every where and it would drive us up the wall so rather than fight it we decided that if we ever had a band that "Industrial Yellow" would be fitting. Chad Perry
Indy Anna  You guessed it. Another all-girl country band, with the members residing in the great state of Indiana. I once wanted to name my daughter Indy Anna. Fortunately, I never had any children. Indyhick
IndyGent I think it would be a great idea for a indy rock band to be named after our Editor. [Ed. note: Thanks, I am so honored. But it has to be a band from Indianapolis. ;)] phamilto
Inedible Shoelace Well it sounds as it it is HARD, and cant be eaten, so if you think about music, we play it hard! Its all good, it works! Kyle P.F.
Inertia It's a good name for a band. It just sounds cool. Could be rock or pop. Edward
Inevisting This is a word that I came up with that is the combonation of Inevitable and Sting.  Alex Smith
Inevitable Well i got this from a game, Tribes (PS2) ! It's a tight name huh? I feel famous. ZeniK

Inferior Concrete Ok, so, my friend and I were walking down the street one day and we saw a sign on someone's lawn next to their driveway which said "made with superior concrete", so we began to wonder if everything else was just made with inferior concrete. We then decided that Inferior Concrete would be the name of our new band, if we ever got around to forming it. Lisa
Inferno I was playing with a lighter one day, dropped it and set light to a bunch of leaves and bang-the idea hit me. (not literally) Robz
Infierno Is this a band name already? I dunno. as far as i know it means Hell in spanish Nix
The Infiltrators I don't know I just like it. It sounds kind of rebellious and cool at the same time. If this isn't the name of a band it should be. Edward
Infinity It's from a car brand, and it gives a little bang to it. nathan

Ingenue Orchestra We revamped our group and saw this name, which meant new woman with new beginnings or rebirth. Renee Reynolds
Ingrown Toenail Epidemic Of course, ingrown toenails aren't really contagious. But it does make for an infectious rock band. oxy
Inhale Mary It's a play on a commonly heard word grouping, with a bandesque twist Cecil
Inhale the Love Gas This was my band's name. We got it from those 60s spy movies/TV shows where there was always some wierd-colored gas being sprayed into someone's face and they would pass out....Why "Love" Gas...I'm not sure... Steve

Ink A band of some real idiots went into the Federal Band Name Registration Office to register their name and the form said, "What is your band name? (Write in ink.) So they wrote in "Ink". Whooler
Ink OK, it was this really mean thing my whole grade did to this one girl in 6th grade. We told her there was a band called Ink to see if she would go along with it, and she did.

This went on for the whole year and she just kept on pretending like she knew what we were talking about, and claimed to see all their new music videos and everything.  Kj
Ink Face Dummie My friend got really wasted and passed out. Well me and my trusty black pen got bored. You'll figure out the rest. Wierd One
Inkerman Street Rhinos It had nothing to do with Inkerman Street (next to Coronation St) and nothing to do with Rhinos - Great 80's Stoke Band Terry Baker
Inkkinhuney Maybe it isn't cool, but I found it interesting. Sounds like 'Ink and Honey', as an art major, 2 things I like! ;)  Jordi Kaie
Inkrejulus It means like, not easily decieved, or you don't believe many things without proof. I was looking online and found this word, and thought, wow that would look cool spelled like this. (IN-Krej-oooh-lus) AJ Steel
Inner anarchy I came up with this name trying to come up with a name for my rock band but I decided to give it a different name so if anyone wants it it's there's  Alice
Inner City Express We used it back in the mid-70's because we though ICE was pretty cool!!! Vern Chandler
Inner Transition I was trying to decide what to call my band, when I eventually create one, and I was reading the periodic table for inspiration. Somehow the inner transition metals just struck me as cool. Could be a sort of new age band maybe. subject to change
Innocence Forgotten This would be a cool band name for a girl group who isn't quite as angelic as they seem. cassi
Innocent Bystander i was sitting in my garage playing my guitar when some guy almost got hit by a car when he was walking. i thought that it may represent being a bystander and getting hit by something life-changing Earle

The Innocent Criminals Usually, criminals are not too innocent, so I came up with it as sort of an oxymoron.  tbuck61391
