Names -> Cool Band Names -> J, 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.

Name
 
Origin
 
Submitted by:
Job Security Because somebody has to have it. Mon Frere
Jock Itch Delight This name is cool because it makes absolutley no sense whatsoever. Why? Because I have had jock itch before, and trust me, it's not delightful! TYLER
Jodie Foster's Butt A bit of trivia here with the name: Jodie Foster was the little girl in the Coppertone Suntan Lotion ads who had her bikini bottom removed by her dog, exposing her suntanned derriere. I'm sure Jodie would love a band named after her famous butt.  name
Jody and the DIrty sKiRtz Just sitting around with my boyfriend (drunk) trying to find a cool name for a band. I'm a singer and thought this would be pretty darn cool! Jody
Jody Got Married Based on the Brian Adam's song - "Summer of '69", which goes "had a band, tried real hard, Jimmy quit, Jody got married, shoulda known we'd never get far". Many have thought that line WAS a reference to his actual band name. Clint Bishop
Joe Blow and the Eskimoes Also the Yataheyder. I always say these words, and they sound good together. Plus, it sounds like a foreign language Dawn
Joe Friday I always loved Dragnet and Joe Friday...and I can't believe there ISN'T a band with that name! Suzette
Joesy and the Pink Rockets  Johnny
Joey's Apple From a "Friends" episode: Joey comments that his tie is making his Joey Apple hurt (he meant his Adam's Apple.) Hawk
Joey's Descendants my friend made it up and he was thinkin of joey and the pacemakers coy matula
Jogging With Lipstick So cool! Actually, my mom came up with this, but it's totally punk. You know those wierd people, who go out to exercise but feel they have to put on all their makeup first? They have to look perfect even though they're gonna sweat it off anyway. Kinda of a metaphore for life, don't you think? You never know what to expect.  Erica Messner
John 3:16 This is a cool band name because it is the most complex verse in the Bible. I thought about how Jesus Christ died on the cross for us! I am going to parody songs into Christian songs, so that I may be a good disciple! I will spread the Gospel through my songs, and convert many so that many may have everlasting life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever beleived in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 NIV. Joshua
John Henry and the Steel-Driving Men Because come on, what's cooler than a 7-foot-tall guy who drives nails into the ground? Anais
John Q. Public & the Nobodies Sounds like a ska band to me... Brother Beef
John The Spastic If you hate Baptists... IHaveNoBrain
Johnny Cupcake and the Soda Brigade I just came up with it one night when talking with friends. I think its pretty cool because it's catchy plus it just sounds weird. I don't really know what it means. I think they had started calling me Johhny Cupcake and I added the Soda Brigade part! G Money
Johnny Greaseball and the Reach-Arounds My dad says the weirdest stuff... IHaveNoBrain
Johnny Guitar Once This derives from a mishearing in a coda from the track 'The Best' by Teddy Riley-led group Guy. Though I still don't know what they say in this particular line (though they're listing famous figures of soul music), I laugh each time I hear 'Johnny Guitar Once'. It's just so nonsensical that simultaneously it's magnetically unique. Don't know what type of music they would specialise in but whatever it is, guaranteed it would be a surefire hit by name alone. Devil Jones
Johnny Gun Gyro This band name just came to me. It's a combination of Johnny Knoxville, Spyro Gyro, and Guns N' Roses. Thus Johnny Gun Gyro was born. Kayla Thompson
Johnny Tampon and the Toxic Shocks A long time ago I was in this band. Ridiculous names like this work with ridiculous peeps and loud a** trebly rock. your mothers toy
Johnson It Well i guess anything with Johnson in it would be cool, but whenever me and my friends have to do something fast we always say "Johnson it" Pnathan
The Joint-Rolling Toms I was walking home with my friend and we were talking about how I saw a kid rolling a joint during class. Then we were so bored that we started to make up a song about him and named our "band" this. S
The Joke Assasins My friend was tellin a joke, and someone else recognized that joke, and shouted out the punch line, so i called him a joke assasin.  Pat Davison
The Joker Jason submitted nonsensical lyrics to Steve Miller Band's "THe Joker", and listed artist and title wrong, so he actually put that the song was called "Steve Miller Band" and by "The Joker". So then The Joker would be a cool band name as it was in among band names. And just think, if this band sung a nonsensical lyric, that someone submitted, it would be up with Jason's! Great! sonikal
Jolly Jokers From Hogan's Heroes, it's what Sgt. Schultz calls the men when they act funny. Dave
The Jolopies Its a sweet name for any band. I work at an antique store and saw an old toy with the box that said Jolopy something or other on it. Lame toy. I knew the word before that, sometimes you just have to see it in writing before you realize its a cool word. Kevin
Jomammas Sophat Junkies For all those jo momma joke addicts. Well I could just hear "and now for your nights entertainment".  badboybear
Jon An Chovi Because we mixed Jon Bon Jovi up with Anchovi and we believe that it sounds like an interesting mix. Wouldn't you agree??? Shichael
Jonny Stole My Carcass I just thought of it cos i was in a funny mood. The word carcass seems to make it interesting. Good name for a stupid ska punk band Andy
Joseph A-Die It's like former Colts running Joseph Addai, but it's not. JeReMy
Josko Boyce I was playing College Hoops 2K8 and the game called a player on Nicholls State (possibly Anatoly Bose (by the way, awesome name)) "Josko Boyce". I thought this would be a great name for a band or a 60's Motown singer. JeReMy
Journey to Nowhere I was coming up with some band names and this stuck in my head. SamVK
Joyride Death Plunge It was a headline in a newspaper. Dave
Joyride to Hell Is this allowed? Any way, just listen to it. It's epic in itself! Vaughn
The Joyriders I took this from the Roxette album and hit song of the same name, Joyride. It would make a great name for a band. Edward
Ju Ran Ran Ju is the name of my old best mate. I think that her name switched around is just too cool for a band name. mel
Judas Cradle I just remembered a medieval torture device that I read somewhere. Adrian Smith
Judas' Cradle its a torture weapon just like iron maiden and it sounds cool. Not meant to be satanic but for black metal its perfect Doran
Judges In the Bible Judges were strong leaders. NICKI
Judgment Day Refreshment Committee When Armageddon comes, let's go out with a party! Jusmee
Judgment Day Regreshment Committee We were drunk, morbid, and talking about the end of the world. We decided we'd go out playing music and partying. We'd even cater it. Larry Hammond
Judith and the Metaphors I have a friend called Judith, who is the last person you'd expect to be in a band. I thought this is kind of a metaphor for something (havn't thought what yet). Ironically enough, we have a great geek chic band. Judith plays guitar, none of our songs make sense. They're all metaphors. Phoebe
Juggalotus The ultimate name for a band of Juggalos, diehard ICP fans spreadin the message of the carnival. Maybe they would not have the visions themselves, but that couldn't stop a group of unded rock-rappin serial slaughterin mutha fackos! Pharoah Ashseti
Juggernath I found it in a dictionary when looking for a name for my band. It means a massacre. It also sounds cool (not to be confused with Juggernaut.) The Almight Boblin
The Juice Junkies I think it has a double meaning in that "juice" could be enterpreted as music or drink. It's kinda cool. Ronny
Juicy Fruity Babes This one is cool cuz i luv Juicy Fruit gum. Danielle
The Jukebox Gringos Named in honor of all those american tourists who go down to T Town or Juarez and get tanked up and play Guantanamera over and over again on that old wurlitzer till they are in a hypnotic state and wake up in a Mexican Hoosgow. badboybear
The Jukebox Heroes Taken from the Foreigner song. This should really be the name of a band somewhere. Edward
Jumbled In Ur Lips This is when u kiss eachother...ur lips gets jumbled... 4 bands which sings sex songs KGiLr
Jumbo Shrimp Is it an oxymoron or is it just a really big shrimp? Hawk
Jump in Girl Opposite of Fall Out Boy.  Alex Bennet
Jumping Around With Jesus My band and I were sitting and thinking of a band name, and this show on Comedy Central came on. Some guy shouted "JUMPIN' JESUS!". We started talking about how stupid it was, and then we decided it would be a good band name Casey
Jumping Jinjo's It just sounds cool. Got jinjo's from a game called banjo-Kazooie Joe
Jumping Wall Concussion It is from my habit of running into walls. As a child my father would exclaim "that wall jumped right out at you!" The music genre would have to be some energetic Punk rock.  The Incredible Myself
June Cleaver's Beaver From the old TV Series, it's a name an Eddie Haskell of the New Millenium would love.... Vince
Jungle Habitat Well I was reading Weird New Jersey, cause i live in New Jersey, and there was a place called Jungle Habitat that was a zoo but it was abandoned and all the animals broke loose and were roaming around. I thought it would be real 70s or 80s ish sorta and like cool cause we come from new jersey and it has a sick background story. no one but me liked it though Kingjeremy
Jungle Jim and The Monkey Bar Just another version of sleepy's submission, since the Jungle Jim and the Monkey Bars are both playground apparatuses used by kids for climbing and hanging with their hands. Opie M.
Jungle Jim and the Swing Sets Oh, it's a great play on words in so many ways. Perfect for a Big Band or Swing Band sleepy
Junk Food 4 The People my friends and i were sitting around and discussing some of todays great music that you know you shouldnt be listening to becuase in reality it just sux and some bands all sound the same...but its funny how were all addicted to it....so my friend was like "yea...its junk food for the poeple"  stef
Junk Mail I was looking at the mail one day while I was on the phone talking to my friend about what should the band's name was, and I was muttering too much junk mail, but she thought it was my idea and she said, "Hey! That's a awesome name!" And I was like, "Uhhhh..." Zarrel
Junk Mail it is cool because it is about heavy metel rock and soft rock basicley it is a jumble of ways to sing i came up with it outside on my lap top i had a bunch of junk mail and i wrote it as my band name Joshua&Matthew
Junk People If you really are what you eat, then a lot of the people I know would be this since they eat junk food. IHaveNoBrain
Junkie With A Monkey In jay and silent bob, Jay says he's just a junkie with a monkey. Ok...I thought it was funny. Bobby
Jurisdiction it effectively means "to have control", i can see the platinum albums already jonboy4king
Jusebocks It's a cooler way of spelling juicebox! squirrelguy931

SAo it hit me by mastake. i have to give my bud dave some of the credit cause hesaid it and all jazz. Go Just a Guess.  I forget
Just 4 Fun People always say the phrase so me and my red hair decided it would be a cool band name. red buckle
Just Another Bloody Sunday My grandfather was watching TV during a Sunday night. Actually, he was watching the news on CNN. Then there was like 3 news (stories) about killings and he (responded by saying), "Just another bloody Sunday." Wow! I should give my grandpa a credit for that. It gives me goosebumps when he says that. It rocks though. Oh no!
Just Another F***ing Cover Band This was a suggestion I made when a friend and I were trying to come up with band names. And hey, it's honest. subject to change
Just Another Fad There are a lot of bands that get really really popular but then kind of fade away because they were the "in" thing. Kids started liking a new band, so they're just another fad. Andy
Just Becase A misspelling of "just because" from the Stupid Band Names submission form here on Amiright. JeReMy
Just Black I went to a summer camp and we had teams. The black team's name was Just Black. So I thought it would make a good band name. Tyler McDonald
Just For The Fish Maybe a "Country Joe and the Fish" cover band...this was a phrase my mom used to use. It was a play on words of the phrase, "just for the hell of it.", which became "just for the halibut", and halibut is a fish... Syntania
Just Four White Kids from Iowa What my band went by until we thought of a cool name. Hence when people asked us who we were we said, "Just four white kids from Iowa." Kid sinister
Just Like That Just Like That was the name for Matt Hardy's (WWE Wrestler) original finishing move and I thought it sounded cool Thiis Guy

Just When You Thought I Was Human Ever been called a machine? I have.. I thought this was pretty cool though. This Dude With Cake
Just White Sheep Well I thought about Black Sheep as a band name but it seemed up ones self, so then I thought White Sheep but I found out someone already had that name. So THEN I thought Were Just White Sheep and shortened it to "Just White Sheep". Phew! P.s this name is taken wednesday 14
Justice 4 Just Us thought about Metallicas Justice for All and naturally turned it to Justice 4 Just Us. ("Us" could have optional spelling of "U.S.") Clever Devil
Justice Against Monsters I wrote a poem entited this, and it dawned upon me that it would be a cool name for a band. I guess it's cool because it's the whole good vesus evil thing. Monsters can mean corporate business or anything that people associate monsters with. Also it's quite catchy and punchy. Paul Dawson
Justin Case I had a band in the early 80's and we were sitting around after rehearsal the day before our first gig trying to come up with a alternative name for the band, just in case we sucked and didn't get re-hired. The name just stuck and so did we for 6 years. DIEGOROB
The Justin Sharpie Connection Well,It's accually my friend and my band's name..We got it because,Justin Hawkins(The Darkness)Is cool,And so are Sharpie Markers..And our favorite wrestling team is the 'Rock'n' sock connection' so..Yea.. Kylie Veno
Juvenile Injustice  Ruben
Juxtaposed Juxtaposition is an art term meaning something that doesn't go with something else. An example would be the maybe seen fish floating inside a house. I could have chosen juxtaposition, but juxtaposed just sounds more "bandy." Jessica
