Names -> Cool Band Names -> L, 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.

Leave It Go Natural There's a shady area of my front lawn which I can't decide whether to sod or mulch. As I was staring at it yesterday, for the 105th time, thinking about what I want to do with it, I thought "Maybe I can just leave it go natural." Susan
The Leave Its it comes from the phrase "Take it or Leave it" & could be a punk-emo type band that would play at the Warped Tour. would be a kickin hard-ass girl band, though. iheartjimmyfallon
Leaving South Hampton No, I'm not from South Hampton, I know there's "The Hamptons", in Florida but I'm not even sure theres a "South Hampton" but it has nothing to do with that me and my friend were thinkin of names and he lives in a neighborhood called "West Gate" and he hates it so he said "Leaving West Gate?" I was bored so i was lookin at a map and as he said it I saw Hampton and i said "what about Leaving Hampton" I kinda liked the west in west gate but decided on south instead... it's a name you either embrace and fall in love with or immediatly reject and hate it.  Tyler
The Lectroids Several bands got names from sci-fi properties (Nerf Herder from "Star Wars", T'Pau from "Star Trek", Eve 6 from "The X-Files", and of course, Duran Duran from "Barbarella") so why not a name from "Buckaroo Banzai"? Brian Kelly
Left Foot Green Inspired by one of the most challenging Twister maneuvers ever. Advantage: The abbreviation LFG just rolls off the tongue. K
Left Hand Man When a Mob boss needs someone to turn to, he goes to his right hand man. But when he needs someone killed for him, he goes to his left hand man. So my friends and I thought that would be a good name, because we're all kinda homicidal! [Ed.'s note: Speak for yourself!] Drollive
Left On Green because It's a common used direction and people would think of it often and that would make good sales. charlene
Left Side Drive  Friend got in trobule in school for saying stuff about LSD So we had to make up a name to get outta trouble and was like hell thats sounds coo Skit
The Left Sock Thievers The idea comes from a song called 'The Left Sock Thievers', in 'The Cat In The Hat Song Book' by Dr. Suess. All of that book's songs can now be found on YouTube, by the way. Regina Haniger
Left Ventricle It's the most powerful chamber of the heart. Super D
Leftover Acetamide I was sitting in Chem class one day, looking through the chemicals...And Acetamide just sounded cool. It's kind of a rip-off of Leftover Crack. marisa
Leftovers When my band split up me and the bass player decided to form an acoustic act. This was an option that almost made it. Don Christensen
The Leftovers i think it would be cool for a band that was just thrown together, because everyone wanted to be famous. I told it my band, but they toosed it out the door, so maybe someone elses can use it! :0) Amanda Lee
Leg Crabs My friend said she had leg CRAMPS, but I had mistaken what she said for leg crabs. Thought it'd be a good band name. Junior
Legacy I like it because it makes it sound pretty badass, but it has its soft side to it too. Josh Somers
LegBreakerz Since im a Breaker-slang for breakdancer- I thought this would be a tite b-boy-breaker- Krew name. I was also thinking about------> Neck Breakerzzz Daniel
The Legend of Danger and Solstice I was playing around with a couple of words in my head when my friend needed a band name. Matryshoka
Legendary Power of the Magikarp Not only does it show that the band isn't going to just bash pokemon, but the fact that they are talking about a magikarp's power(Magikarp being well-known as probably the weakest and most pathetic pokemon.), shows how weird they are. birdboy2000
The Legendary Turndowns True story: I was at a party playing Frogger on a MAME cabinet. An attractive young woman walked up and asked "what game is that?". When I said "Frogger" she said "that's a game I've only heard about in legend" and walked away. Thus a band name was born. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Legends Show everyone what you plan to be. NICKI
Legion Really cool name for, like, a death metal band. Legion is actually the name of a demon in the bible, and is mentioned on "The exorcism of Emily Rose". Double Win!! Jake
Legions of Rock! it sounded cool i thought of it The t man
The Lemmings lemmings are little weasel-like critters who hurl themselves off cliffs by the thousands (or is it dozens?) each year, simply because of their follow-the-leader-herd-mentality. people are lemmings and any band with enough insight to label themselves as such would completely and thoroughly kick a**.... wouldn't they? i'd like to think that they would.  mary jane
Lemon Ninja Chickens It's cool because it's the 3 coolest things around: lemons, chickens and Ninjas. Also, I thought as a debut album, you could have songs about them invading. For short, you can say LNC. I came up with it because of various in jokes with my friends and my love of these 3 things. Plus no one else would think of it. Paris
Lemons Made of Wood I was sitting in math class and some of my friends were talking and one of them said made of wood just as I said Lemons Alien7
The Lemony Snickets After the author of A Series of Unfortunate Events! :) Anonymous
LEMyT It simply is an acronym of Les Enfantes Miserables y Terribles!!! dyess
Lendl's Magic Wand This came to me in a dream when Ivan Lendl was still a struggling tennis player. I drempt that my sister, (who hates most sports) was saying it (and approving of it) in a conversatiom with a friend. The "magic wand" is, of course, his tennis racquet. sport
Lenin & The Bolsheviks I was talking about Communism in Russia and the Revolutions of 1917 (as you do) & came out with this phrase, I thought it sounded pretty cool as a band name. My friends however, didn't. trevster2905
Lenin and the Bolsheviks Well i was studying and i looked at my study syllabus, about the russian revolution, and one of the points was Lenin and the Bolshevik Revolution Jason
The Lennon Complex Every guy in a band wants to be John Lennon, just so they can have an Asian girlfriend (only works if the guy is white), like I did Danny
Leon's Pee-ons Leon is the gay manager played by Martin Mull in "Roseanne". The "pee-ons" are a tribute to working class folks like you and me. newschool
Leon's Schedule In a recent sales meeting, someone commented that the date of a pending lunch with a prospective client would "depend on Leon's Schedule." Since that moment, I've been walking around the office screaming, "Ladies and gentlemen, let's have a nice round of applause for 'LEON'S SCHEDULE!'." Not sure why... dc

Leonard Hochstetter A hybrid of two characters from different sitcoms on CBS, Leonard Hofstader from The Big Bang Theory and Major Wolfgang Hochstetter from the old show Hogan's Heroes. I always thought that Leonard was a ancestor of Major Hochstetter. Frosty The Cat
Leonardo DiCapitated An artist known who was known to draw bizarre characatures of celebrities as mammals, was on Access Hollywood. He drew a beheaded lion that resembled Leonardo DiCaprio and call it "Leonardo DiCapitated". Instant death metal band name. star
The Leopard Boyz It is so cool because it is based on the coolest movie ever, Cheeteh Girls.  steven
Lern Too Spelle It's "learn to spell" deliberately mispelt. Funy! Idiot Savon
Les Dog i was thinking about the les paul guitar and the grateful dead concert DVD called Grateful Dawg. i just thought it sounded cool together Link9
les sauvages Good for riot ladies. French for 'the savages'. kate
Les Voitures Well, I have quite a few obsessions, two of which are the French language and the band The Cars. So I decided to put them together...The Cars in French is Les Voitures! Cat
Les Yeux Mysterieux I really like french and I wrote a rhyming poem entitled "Les Yeux Mysterieux" HENCE the name! I just came....I guess cause I really really really love french! Alison
Lesbian Dan My best friend dan was going out with a true dog of a girl who he was completely obsessed with...she seemed to think it wasn't cheating on him if she only got with other girls...the novelty soon wore off when she left him for my boyfriend...bygones...still cool name though...i'm thinkin maybe a punk band?! natz
Lesbian Pudding When I mentioned bands from one of AVClub.com's yearly Worst Band Names lists called "Lesbian" and "Pudding" to a friend, he thought they were one band called "Lesbian Pudding" JeReMy
Less Insentive Than A Chineese Factory Worker chinese people are funny  unknown
Less Talk More Walk This is is one of many, many band names scribbled over a few pages in a small sketchbook. I'm not sure how I came up with it. As of 07/10/06, it's unused. Eleya
Less Than Clever Was listening to Dexie' s Midnight Runners, and this line struck me as kind of deep... who among us REALLY has all the answers. This title modestly proclaims that we are all in fact on the same journey - a life spent learning Big D Woman
Less Than Gentlemen I just did. No interesting or funny reason, it just came to me. Boymanman
The Lesser Evil it's from that saying 'sometimes you have to choose the lesser evil' and i think it would be great for a hardcore punky goth band cos it kinda has a ring to it. Rage
Lest Evil Should Be Infinite And Never Stop It sounds epic and plus the first letter of each word spells something. G
Let Sally Dance A friend was dancing alone in a club and having a great time. My partner and I figured this was the reason we paid the cover -- well worth the money. Kim
Let's Call Helicopters Clouds I called a helicopter a cloud by mistake, but it seems like a cool band name. Richard
Let's Play Tonight C'mon - by far the best band name thought up. Bunch of guys thinking "Screw it, let's play tonight" Danny The Manny Bobanny
LetDoItAndSayWeDidnt Since alot of band names are just one word-eatmewhileimhot,isetmyfriendsonfire, ect- I though it would be cool to use a well known saying as a band name! and I came up with letdoitandsaywedidnt! Mariah
Letha' Weapons A great name for an all-female hard rock band---or a stripper. Obie Lame Kenobi
Lethal Injection come on..... u know today everything sounds cool to us stupid rockin teenagers. why should this be considered bad? i think this name kicks ass! Yoshiko
The Lethalizer It's more a political statement than anything. The other three band members and I were watching something on lethal injection and we thought this would be a great name for a metal band. Also, we created the name because we were sick and tired of all the other bands around our area. We wanted to "lethalize" them and silence them forever. Steven
Lets Make Something Heartless It sounded cool to me lol kat
Lettuce Prey Band Logo: Extreme close-up of a Praying Mantis chomping on something. Those things are wickedly ugly. How I came up with it? It just popped into my head when I was sitting in class, bored, writing out cool band names. Johnny the K
Leukemia Kids We almost picked this name when we wanted something that would really offend people across the board. I dont think anyone wanted to go bald though. Mr Podgurney
levado Me and my four friends come up with this name when we are in a trip. cris john
Level 87 I came up with it when I thought of those extremely obsessed gamers who wear out their thumbs. SamVK
Level Cross Can't have it both ways. If you start with an X (the cross) and turn it until one of the arms are level, then the other arm will be on a cockeyed tilt. It happens every time. Anyway I do like the word "level" cause it's the same both ways, left to right and right to left while the V in the middle gives it a defined centre point. A cool word back to front or vice-versa. Murdock MaGoo (gg)
levelhead I honestly don't know..........It uhh, means to have "sound judgement", but I just like how it sounds. jess
leviathan Pronounced 'la-vi-ath-an'. The Leviathan is a mythical sea monster. JORDAN
Leviathan Its cool because its one of of the many forms of Satan expressed as a dragon like sea creature, perfect for extreme metal bands Gazz
Lexdysia Alternate self-reference of dyslexia. It has Lex at the front, as in Luthor, and as Lexan clear plastic. Some cool stories are dys-topian - the opposite of utopian. So don't change the syllables, change the order, the way the dyslexic probably do. vivifizgig
The Libation Army Like the Salvation Army but much more drinking is involved. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Liberius norway folk metal bill blogg
Libertines Got the idea from The Breeders' "Cannonball". Would be good if it were a riot grrrl band. Lee
Lickers I was watching Resident Evil one day, and one of the monster was called a "licker". I thought Lickers would be a cool band name =) Marishka
Licking Ashtrays A non-smoker once told me that smoking was a bad habit and that it was like "licking an ashtray". Vahtoe Bill
Lie Before Tragedy I was just thinking about homeless people, then yeah, there it is. God
Liez My friends and I were standing around the school quad and someone wrote something on my hand. It said, "I Heart Melissa". I'm said, "Give me that pen", and I wrote "Liez". She answered, "Is that your band name?" Duh!! XD not cool. Chelsea
Life After Me My friends and i were trying to come up with a band name that would play on the lips of the fellow students on campus, we were pretty stumped, but then this thought occured to me "what will the world be like after my life?" you know, the words formed and i came up with "Life After Me" sadly though the band broke up and now this great name is back up on the shelf.  volcom llama lover
Life Alarm It was a play on the band Death Clock. Holly
Life In A Fish Bowl I was sitting on my bed looking at my beta fish, (his name is Chop Sueyif anyone is wondering) and me being weird again, I was talking to him . . .I said "Hey buddy, How's that life in a fish bowl?" I thought its sounded pretty awesome, maybe for a rock band who needs to get out and see the world . . . Janice
Life In The Shadows I think it is awsome band name because, i was thinking what it would be like to watch someone live their life but the person who is watching is not actually alive.the name rox! Rachael Hayden
Life In Veins It's based off the premise of "living in vain". It kind of just came to me one day. It seems like it would be a good name for a metal band. Hugs
Life Size Marshmallow Ever seen hay rolled into those white things on the sides of the freeway? Besides it sounds cool. a couple people with instruments and no name
A Life Spent Learning What better way to spend a life? Keep in mind, it doesn't say they are wiser, I guess their songs would have to prove that. Maybe they have "SPENT" it already, and never learned a thing. I have a sister like that, but she seems pretty happy with the results. Big D Woman
Life Support System Struggling musicians who want to play music for a career need a support system to survive. ME
Life Support Withdrawn Life Support withdrawn is cool because in some movies when people are going to die, they say "Shall I withdraw life support, Doctor?" I just thought it was cool.  Connor
Life-Long Slump Another in a bunch of downer names. Actually sums up my life pretty well -- although that's another story. Most of my friends think it's too dark . . . which makes it perfect. dumb
LifeBlind It's the name of the band i use to be in, we're startin' up a new band now. We used it for our name and we were a punk band. I think it could kinda suit any type of band though. Drummin' Punk
Lifestyles of the Confused and Careless  MindGraffiti
Lift Point I always see it on the sides of Semi's on the freeway. Seems like an alt rock band name. Katy
Light's Darkness I was just in my english class trying to help my friend Isaac out w/ his band name...and I thought of something...Light's Darkness Mari-in-love
Lighting-Rod Of Hate  Its an awesome name for a hardcore metal band with a melodic touch to them. I got it off an episode of "Whose line is it anyways" on abc where Collin said, "Let's make fun of the Bald guy... He will be your the lightning rod of hate. Virgilio aint gay
Lightning 95 A reference to the movie Cars that sounds like a Sum 41/Blink 182 ripoff. Why not? JeReMy
Lightning Duck It's my bands name. So it's taken!! My friend and I we're discussing about how they have "Mozilla Firefox". He came up with "Mozilla Lightning Duck" to use as a rip-off, ghetto version of Firefox. He's gonna make billions. But once again. TAKEN!  J.T.
Lightning Jack how cool is that for an 80s inspired rock band? awesome. i got it from a film with paul hogan and cuba gooding jr in it, crap film, great band name. wicked-phat-trust. haha. Louis Dude
Lightning Strikes And Falling Coconuts Me and my band went to the beach and saw a sign which said, 'beware of lightning strikes and falling coconuts'. We saw that as a sign, literally, to change our bandname. Before that we were called Thunderstruck And Asphyxiating. Akey
Like A Fat Kid Loves Cake My aunt from South Carolina once said she loved my parents and me "like a fat kid loves cake" JeReMy
Like A Panda Lost In Bamboo It's cool because pandas are the coolest, plain and simple. Also, I believe a panda lost in bamboo can show how people can get lost in familiar environments (e.g how can a person lose who he/she is when they hang out with the same people). Vanio
Like It Matters My friend Vito thought it up when people kept asking for his band name. He said, "Like it matters", as if it matters what the name is. It just stuck. Von
Likewise I guess this sounds pretty cool. I was watching "The Flintstones" one day and... Ceedles
Lil Angels It mean young girls never doing bad. They always save the day no matter wut comes in the way. Chelsea newcomer
Lil' Snap Hey, I wanted to become a rapper when I grew up. I was going to name myself Lil' Snap.  parody_MASTA
