Names -> Cool Band Names -> J, 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.

J o N z E I saw the movie and it was great and the world should have more people like that. good for a political group or a christian rock group ummm just kidding. B r i Z z Y
J-Huggy I was just typing random letters, and this is what i got. Could be used for a rapper in a children's show (i.e. CareBears). Rachel
J. Y. Kelly & The Astroglides In Canada we have two major brands of sex lube; KY Jelly and Astroglide. A friend of mine wanted to make a guitar that looked like a giant p**** and form this band. John Sobey
J.A.B.(Just Another Band) when i was in third grade we thought of this name we both really liked it but because we were just stupid little fourth graders at the tie we did nothing with it im 15 now and this is the name of my new band i think its a cool name cause jab sounds kinda hardcore and dark and sence were a punk band all we will ever be is "just another band" But i know that J.A.B. and dicken rayray "a friend of mines band" will be unstopable some day ! Matt
The J.J.'s It could "Jumping Joys" or "Jumping Jays" or somthing in the like. I thought of it when my 5 yr. old bro. asked (accidently) for "J.J." instead of OJ. Buttons
Jabba Da' Hood Gangsta related...Jabba da hutt wit inna hood.... Steve
Jabba The Hut On The Oregon Trail A friend of mine says that each US state brings a certain image to her mind. For some reason Oregon makes her think of Jabba The Hut! Regina Haniger
Jabba The Hutt You all know why its cool. The man is a massive pile of lard. Plus, he eats alien toads. Frolf like mad
Jabberwocky from the Lewis Carrol poem. Kali
Jack and the Nimble Quicks From one of our beloved nursery rhymes of course!! De Knight
Jack Jahnaff we were prettty messed up when we came up with this one adrian knudsen
Jack Ruby and the Assasinations They might open for The Dead Kennedys Dave S
The Jack Soo Pusher Its really cool. Jack Soo (Nick Yemana on "Barney Miller") didn't get the recognition he deserved! He rocks! Rignard
Jack's Smirking Revenge "Fight Club" reference. Aurelius Caulfield
Jack-Jack Just like the name Jack-Jack Dackky
Jacket Potato Jesus My friend was looking through a French dictionary in a French lesson (figures), and at the top of one of the pages she turned to it said "jacket potato -----> Jesus". We decided it would make a great band name! Mouse
Jackie Steels A Car It is a parody on the 80's band names like "Frankie goes to Hollywood" and "Michael learns to rock". It got the misspelling of steels/steals, cos it sounds more demolition then. and yeah, this was also the name of my old school band. Magga
Jacknifed Sugartruck heard this on The Simpsons.......could not get it outta my head...it sounds like a cool, punk rock band....came up with a few band members for it too.... they're all very saccharine induced and full of reckless driving. SilverFish
The Jacknifed Sugartruck like many other people on here...I'm addicted to the Simspsons...and this is something Homer blurted out when he saw...a jacknifed sugar truck... SpidersMakeMeGiddy
The Jacksonville Jaggers It's alliterative and it's a pun. It's a pun on the Jacksonville Jaguars and Mick Jagger. Because jaguar and Jagger sound very much alike. So if you like football or The Rolling Stones this would be the band for you. I suppose they could be a Rolling Stones tribute band. I think they'd definitely be heavier on the rock and lighter on the pop sound.  Edward
Jaclyn Hyde Some women look great on the outside, but beware what lies beneath. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Jacob's Fault I was in my algebra class and this teacher was yelling at a girl for talking, and she started blaming it on this guy. "It's Jacob's fault!!" And I just thought it sounded.. interesting? Ashley
jadeblade  Alex

Jam session Was watching K-on! And saw Azunyan Ui and Jun have a jam session whilst the main four were at Kyoto. :) A . J
James Johnson Two common American names. NICKI
Jamies Elephant Its cool because if someone asks... "hey who is performing?" and someone says Jamies Elephant, they will think an elephant is coming to perform... Jamies elephant... A chicken
Jan Blaha  My buddy and I were reading some History book at school and found this bishop that was around in the middle ages named Jan Blaha. =w=eezer
Jane Loves Dick I saw a billboard once at a old club and on it was the message, "Married Thirty Six Years and Jane Still Loves Dick - Congratulations" Well, I thought to myself, "That's beautiful" Marblehead
Jane's Rehabilitation Just a spoof on Jane's Addiction. Knumb Prodigy
Janitor Mike I was watching the ABC show The Middle and thought of this, since the character Mike is played by Neil Flynn, who played the Janitor on Scrubs. It's one of those names that sounds like a solo artist that is actually a band, like ones we see a lot on Stupid Band Names. JeReMy
Janitor Squad 101 the rules of being a janitor 1) never make a mess you cant clean 2) always clean the mess you dotn make bud the janitor
January Of Pennies My father used say that whenever he was asked to contribute to the March of Dimes, he'd always reply, "Sorry, but I already gave all my money to the January of Pennies and the February of Nickels." Regina Haniger
Japanese Fighting Monleys i wanted a new name for my new band and accidentally typed this it was supposed to say monkeys but hey MARBLES BOY
Japanese Sexbots In a recap of "Buffy: The Vampire Slayer" on the TV Without Pity site, the recapper was talking about how lousy the Buffybot was: "It's due to that kind of shoddy craftsmanship that the Japanese sexbots are dominating the market." The writer thought it would be a good album title, but it would make an even better band name. JenniD
Japetto Roy's Ghetto Boys haha i wanted a "Lil John & the East-Side Boys"-like name and i came up with Japetto Roy to rhyme with ghetto boy... G_CrAcKa88
Jarocka It's the last name of this lass in a class - her real last name is Jarocka. That has to be one of the coolest names ever. Say it out loud. Jarocka - it could be Jaw Rocker, Jah Rocka, or Jar o' ska with the slightest inflection. Say it out loud JAROCKA - it's not a name, it's an exclamation! Anson Parker
Jaundice Cant beat a good disease as a band name Trickett
JAW (Just Add Water) umm just popped into my head, thought it sounded good either way, JAW or Just Add Water!! Jeffster
Jazz Commando Jazz is inherently cool, as is only too obvious when relaxing in a Mid-Kent kind of mood after dinner and thinking up names for implausible beat combos. Tango-Mango
JC Sykes And The Cosmic Garr I used to deliver the paper to this guy's place when I was kid. It was the sign on his door and stuck in my mind for way to many years. cactuleaf
Jealously Slays The Simple  Well, I'll admit, I'm a jealous kind of guy. Over the years of past relationships, the cause of the break ups was that I would get jealous. And in the end, I would be left with nothing. So it basiclly anyone can relate to if your the jealous type. Chris
Jeanster We made up the band name because Betty, Brandy and I love to wear jeans. So we named our singing group Jeanster. All we need is a band and we are ready to rock and roll! Summer
Jeebus My friend was high and thought he heard Jesus talking to him. Instead of saying, "Jesus is talking to me", he said, "Jeebus is talking to me". rebel rex
Jeezum Crow My brother used to say this all the time. rockerchick
Jeffersonian Voodoo Lighthouse Good for a band specializing in sheer randomness. IHaveNoBrain

Jehovah's Witness Protection Program My wife thinks it would be a good name. john kenerson
Jejune I like how it sounded so weird. N its kinda foreign sounding too. Its another meaning to empty. Interesting I thot. cryssy
The Jell-o Brand Band This is the name that my band and I came up with. Then we realized that Jell-o has probably copyrighted their name. But we've got a back-up: Djell-owh Brand Band Lizar Dbreath
Jell-O On Springs From the movie "Some Like It Hot". Jerry (Jack Lemmon): "Look at that! Look how she moves. That's just like Jell-O on springs. She must have some sort of built-in motors. I tell you, it's a whole different sex!" Caylynn
Jellfire An alteration of the word "Hellfire" to make it more... jelly. Neil
Jemisphere Well, my name is Jem. One time, I was thinking of an email my friend Addie and I were gonna do 'Jem is here'. But I put an 'p' by accident, so it became 'Jemisphere'. Jemma
Jeremy Beedles Midget Hand Its cool, cos its one of those mysterys that you know is there but he never lets you see it, also!! it would so cool on the radio or in a gig line up, its the kind of exposure he doesnt want, but it would save his hated a**, and possible make him popular, think about it. chrisbarnes
Jericho Fallout I always knew the name Jericho was cool. Then while reading a T.V. Guide I saw an episode of an obscure drama program called "Jericho". I knew "fallout" was the perfect compliment to it. It makes sense because of the Bible story. So here it is for all to judge: Jericho Fallout.  Gig (The Jig) Fuller
Jerked Fear I thought it was a cool name i thought of it when i was listening to freak on a leash mindfreak
Jerkface just an old school verbal gesture my fellow 4th graders used to say all the time, it was a sure heart breaker Nickc
Jerky Curtains On the old genesis game "skitchin" there was a cd player where you could select "serious grunge tunage"(or some guy on a synth trying to play metal)and one of the tunes was called the above. I thought it sounded pretty dope. Other tracks were "smells like tuna" and the equally cool"crunchy bumpkin" jae peee
Jermajesty Thank you to the like guy who thought of this in the Offspring names. And I thought that it would make a great rock band nam. Amiright.com and Google.com rule Bush does not.  hamp
Jerusalem Syndrome It essentially means that if you have Jerusalem Syndrome, then you think you're Christ. Great Metal band name! GlamRockNinjaLord
Jesus Action Figure  Jackie
Jesus and the Burning Birches I saw this phrase in a "Sam & Max: Freelance Police" comic years ago which went kinda like this: "Sweet Jesus in a burning Birch bark canoe! What in good God's name is that?" Psychotic Rabbit
Jesus Buddha and Abraham Playin Poker On Saturday Just sounds weird Cpt. Neebo
Jesus Christ on Ice I have this thing where I like to make up my own swears and when this popped out when I saw something really scary, I thought that It just stuck. I think it had something to do with watching "Blades of Glory" with the Grubblets On Ice, but I don't think I saw that movie until after I made this one up Devon Murphy
Jesus Chrysler My boyfriend's first band. (The Saviour meets Lee Iacocca.) Jamie
Jesus Cupcakes OK, well, for anyone who has ever seen Orgazmo(the movie) the lead character calls his girl friend and says "jesus and i love you cupcake" and i just took out the i love you pat and got a cool band name! Ginger
Jesus Fish I live in a very Catholic neighborhood and there are a LOT of Jesus fish around. It just seemed like a cool name! Steve
Jesus Fish After driving around for years and seeing those Jesus Fish things on the backs of people's cars... and I thought that would be a great band name and if there wasn't already a band out there called Jesus Fish then there should be. One Hit Wonder
Jesus From a Petry Dish It was an art project, and we had to draw a portion of an insect,and underneath the Praying mantis was this caption. I could be a sort of mellow-core punk band, almost... emo. Said Vicious
Jesus In A Can That's us. That's my band. Can't take it. If you do, I will personally come to your house, break your teeth and rip them out your a**. I'll give you Jesus in a can, alright. Jesus in a can of WHOOPA**. That's my band, you dumb bastard. Follow Jesus! Wood
Jesus is Bored I saw a bumper sticker that said "Jesus Is _____". For some reason the first word that came into my head was "bored". RevengeFromMars YouTube
Jesus Slaves A friend and I were sitting in school one day thinking of controversial band names. It's a play on the words: "Jesus Saves" seen on many bumper stickers. Robby
Jesus strikes out I was reading some dumb poem in English and this line stuck out. Jordan
Jesus Wears Purple Pantyhose Well, just the mental image plus it's got illiteration going on there. I thought of it on my friend's front porch just saying stupid stuff z~dog
Jet Pack Pilot just thought of it while watching a show on the History Channel about stolen alien technology. It could also be abbreviated to JPP. jaymzwilyum
Jetavana It is the name of the grove where Gotama the first teacher of the way of the Buddha lived and taught many, and also died his last mortal death before becoming one with the universe, and i found it cause i am heavey into that deep stuff and all that and thought it would just be the most awesome name for a band so there it is, if i finally get around to starting one, i got it on reserve haha. but otherwise there it is, another cool band name guys, look it up its really interesting! Dan_Axels
Jew-ish Well, I heard a joke, that said, "I'm not a full blooded Jew, I am Jew-ish". So I thought it would be a good name. Greg
Jezebelligerents Clearly an all-female punk band. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Jilly's Fury It's such a great name for a male band. It'd just sound like a weird girl power band if it was a chick group name. Maybe a male band with female singer. That'd work. Alex
Jim Jones And The Suicides Jim Jones was the leader of a cult who committed mass suicide in 1978. Hmmm...maybe its a bit morbid actually! Craig C
Jim Jones Ice Cream Wagon Jim Jones was a major inspiration for me as I grew up listening to his giniously conceived music and huge talented voice of his. The Ice Ceram Wagon comes from the idea of my childhood, where I start listen to Jim. The Ice Cream Wagon also transmits a sweet and tender idea of joy and fun mixed with excitment. CarlosPT
Jimbo's Beer Glue My friend Jim once got a C.D. stuck to a table because he had spilled beer on it. It could make an interesting product as well. Mustang Dave
