Names -> Cool Band Names -> N, 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.

Never Clever A fun band to listen to, but the lyrics are pretty simple. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Never Ending Headache amazing it could also be a cool name for a song No Name
Never Ending Stupidy  Its What I have So i thought to put it as a band name Ryan 'RyKnow' gonzalez
Never Forever Admitting that nothing lasts forever is the first step to having a great band. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Never Odd or Even Well, it doesn't quite make sense. Plus, it is a palindrome, and the logo could be some sort of cool anagram.  Josh
Never the Same Place Twice Based on a tv commercial ad for "TJ Max," women's clothing.store . They kept repeating: "TJ Max -it's never the same place twice". I kept wondering "how do you find out where the store is, if it is never at the same place twice?"! MarjoMarjo
The Neverending Orgy-nators Great for porno, don't you think? Dark One
Nevermind/The Neverminders These are two band names that I've come up with, both named after the famous Nirvana album. Ned Riley
Nevermore Kind of gothy? Mandy
Neverwas And The Hasbeens It's kinda funny and cute at the same time, like the band would be poking fun at themselves YEAH! jay el dubbya
New Age Metal (This was actually supposed to be a name for a genre, not a band): it was the company name for the place that manufactured the bread racks at the bakery I used to work at. Hilarious combination!! heather em
New Damage To me it means, 'Oh s***! This band is reinventing music as we regret to know it, and their crushing everything in their path'. Kevin
New Entries Great for a band name. Informing the public that they have arrived. Never gets old, because their always "New". It was the first thing I saw when I looked to the left of this blog. Elaine
New Found Paradise  Oliver Bloxham
The New Kids On The Corner I dunno I just liked it Cassidy
New Kids Revenge I think this is cool because everyone always picks on the new kid. This is his revenge! Dylan
New Management I saw on a door to this one local store that it is "under new management". I thought that new management sounded like a cool name for a band. squirrelguy931
The New Republic a thing in a Star Wars book. Junior
A New Scenario The band that takes upon this name must be worthy of it's meaning. It represents being different and not being classified as your stereotypical musician. The band must take different routes to producing a sound like no other. It's been bred a different type of scenario....a new scenario Uzgottafro2
New Super Black Wolf A parody of the most common words used in contemporary band names.  sean orr
New Year's Revolution I was talking to my friend about new year's resolutions and I said "revolution" by mistake and then I thought "Hey, that should be a band name!" Hawky
New York Knishes A rejected name for New York City's XFL team, or a Manhattanite ska-jazz band with a sense of humor? Their first album could be called "Vicious Knishes." Olvan The Terrible
New-Fi Glory One of my friends is a newfie, and he wants to start a band, and he was thinking of names. I like New FOund GLory so i suggested this. Alex Burpee
NEX I looked it up on the internet. It apparently means "slaughter", which I think is quite a cool name for a band. Bagginski
Next In Line Do you need a reason? This ROCKS! Also gives the impression that you will get big (Famous). Came up with it from being in a queue!! Matt Chinnock
Next of Kin Because this is the person who gets notified when someone dies, so it sounds cool for a heavy band, or maybe someone like the Tea Party. Archie Broughton
Next Week's Menu me and my friend big Dave were walking out of the lunch hall at school and there was a pink sign that said next week's menu. we took it for our band but then the band kind of split up. so i joined another band and that's our name Jonny C
NGR (Naked Girl Running) A friend and I were talking about why guys like it when girls fight each other, and about what it looks like in their minds. Something about half-naked girls slapping each other and pulling hair, running away from each other. Then NGR somehow came up and we thing it's an awesome name for a band. Emilio Coolio and Dingo
NI-YON I think it sounds like a great unused rapper name! G
Nibblit Hamsters nibble it... so, Nibblit kinda goes, doesn't it? And my name. Haha! My real name is Elizabeth, tho! Zak, the Hamster Girl!
nic nac I thought of this while I was with my friend. We were thinking of band names and she thought of tic tac but that sounded kind of stupid, so I said "What about nic nac?" It sounds really cool for a two-people only band. Vegged One
Nice Marmot And let's also not forget--let's not forget, Dude--that keeping wildlife, an amphibious rodent, for uh, domestic, you know, within the city-- that isn't legal either.  DAX
NICer I just thought it was cool. I heard this song by The Used and I didn't know the words to it so I checked them. At the end of the song they scream nicer! And it just kind of thought it was wierd the way it was spelled. I kinda souped up the name I made three uppercase and the other 2 lower case. Like I said, I don't expect you to think it's cool. This is free to anyone who wants to take it, I guess. Seipher
Nick and the Munchkins I saw the band name on Nickelodeon at the beginning of a fake music video, and I heard a voice say "Hey, who requested that?" It was just a clip of the music video. Isac
Nickelboy's Third Eye Everybody calls me "Nickelboy" cause I jumped on a nickel once around my friends cause i was greedy, but i ended up getting nothing in the end, thats what Nickelboy means, the Third Eye part: I had a band called MyThirdEye and i just put the two together...basically a speed punk metal disaster waiting to rip Avril Lavigne's head off kevin
Nicki Mirage It's a mix of "mirage" and Nicki Minaj. Also, "Mirage" is said the same as her real last name, Maraj. JeReMy
Nicklebutt i love nickle back so y not nicklebutt? me and my bro LoVE it!!! ilikepietoomuch
Nicotine Angst Much like "teen angst" but with more addiction. RevengeFromMars YouTube

Nifty Gifties from the Office....greatest show ever. D. Money
Nigh Swan Looks like a guy's OR girl's name, and sounds like "Nice One!" Tejayes
Night Ghost Because who sees a ghost during the day?? charles
The Night Season Possibly a time in our future should a nuke explode anywhere in the U.S. the Mid East or Asia. The whole world will be plunged into it. Say your prayers boys & girls. We never know. Gary Gray
The Nightcrawlers This would be a good name for a band. They'd have some serious attitude. Edward
Nightmare Destination I Was thinking of "Final Destination" and kind of had a nightmare about it. Neo
Nightmare Love i dont know if it is any good but it was a song i made up i thought it sounded quite cool  jed
Nihilistic Sanity Nihilistic means nonexistent. I am very creative and some of my ideas are extremely funny/crazy. I am not really insane. But I joke around. For instance, I may say something similar to, "Not the voices! They've come back!" I wrote a song called "Manifested Insanity" which was about someone going insane, though it was written in first person. Other than this, I just thought it sounded really nifty. SaMMy
Niji$quad It's cool because it has an interesting sound to the name. I came up with it by making random sounds in my head and I thought it was a name that would ring in people's ears. Michael Hanover
The Nike Airheads Nike probably would ax this name, but Nike was the goddess of victory. And that's what you want from a band, don't you? And adding "heads" to "Air" would add to the irony. MOR
Nim Chimpsky Its the name of a crazy little chimp in my m8s Psychology textbook.We were flicking through to try and get some inspirition for lyrics/songtitles etc and thought this was abstract and funny.... Masterbasser
Nimbus This might be good for something like "Train"...or maybe for a girl group that worships Eden's Crush and Dream....I don't know where it came from....it could be a name for a heavy metal band, there aren't any good names anymore.... CF
Nine 1 One It pretty much explains it self Matt
The Nine Dollar Bill We went to get some snacks at the Quickie-mart and the bill came to nine dollars. The cashier said he was running low on change and we only had a five and a twenty so we were like "Man! Wish there was such thing as a nine dollar bill!" It kind of ended up as an inside joke and eventually our band name! shel&lins
Nine Volt Moon It's part of a line of a poem i wrote. I thought the poem was pretty cool, especially this bit. Doe Bathory
Nine-Minute Mile It has that sort of alliteration thing going, and I'm a terrible runner, so... you know, it takes me nine minutes... to run a mile. Yeah. Snowblind
NingNongNang Playschool fans of old will understand. Go the ABC. Alex
Ninja Crisis The girl-band "Play" has a news report in a music video dealing with a ninja crisis. Two Guys From SDO
Ninja Nun Convention I figure this would work for a band that wants to be funny. IHaveNoBrain
Ninjas of Rock Anyone who's anyone knows ninjas love to totally rock hard. Instead of a guitar tab thingy, you could use a throwing star. Chris Awesome
Nipple Bunny I have no idea if it's cool or not , but I saw it in a plumbing supply catalog ( it's a metal basket w/ compartments to organize and carry brass nipples) and immediately thought, " What a good name for a band!". smokey
NME Really its supposed to be enemy, but I shortened it so it looks cooler. Bryce Strecker

No B**** Daughter Comes from British show "Absolutely Fabulous". Patsy is always more relaxed in Edina's home when "no b**** daughter" (Saffy) is around to pass judgement. Pam
No Brainer Horrid business expression that I hear all the time. Seems like a good name for a Ramones type dumbcore band. Proteus
No Cash Value I found it on the back of an arcade token, and I thought it would be cool for some cheap garage band. A.J.
No Clue This is great if someone asks "So who's playing here tonight?" You could say "No Clue" and you'd be right!  Crispay Chicken
No Comment I thought of being famous and just repeating "no comment" to the damned reporters. machew
No Country for Old Men A geezer band that doesn't like country music.  Cheam Peake
No Diving Aloud It doesn't really make much sense...perfect for a punk band. The Aloud is a play on words...ya know...instead of allowed...get it?  Me
No Eat Magic Fire An old joke my cousin made up a long time ago about cavemen. G
No Effort I love my bands name because were a punk rock band and where sort of lazy. But we know how to rock. Where also a tribute band to Tenacious D, so were pretty kick ass. Jonny
No Exit I just think its cool Earth Friend
No Eye Deer No Idea .... !!!??~~ ReggiE^Didy

No Fruit We were looking for a cool name. Then we hought of something like "The Big Apples" or so. But one of my friends said, "Hey no fruit in the name please". So I thought we'd name it No Fruit. Niek
NO FURY Made this up about 4 years ago when I was back in high school. It was my bands name for about a week and we stopped liking it. It's not taken, so feel free to use it :) Brandon
No General Direction dont know why, iit actually isnt... jack
No Good!!!! I just thought it would be cool to be on-stage and yelling to the crowd the band name and yelling.. We Are:,,,,, NO GOOD!!!!!!!!!  dave
No Hope My cousin, who used to have a very talented but not-so-radio-friendly (sort of like Rush) band, just got together with some people he knows and a new singer. The singer is a blonde and my cousin is a Hindu--sounds like No Doubt doesn't it? Well, their first performance sucked, so my cousin quipped this little mock band name. melysni.cjb.net
The No Hopes A group of BsB wannabes Kurt Cobain's Guitar Strap
No Idea Had to come up with a band for a school project. Asked my friend, "What shall I call the band?" "No idea." And the rest is history. =3 Cat-chan
No Labels No Labels is cool because every one always says your Punk or Goth or a Prep and there's no point in labels when it comes to music because we all understand. Mandi
No Mas Pantalones It is Spanish for "no more pants", It's also from a commercial. JeReMy
No Name My friends decided ta make a band & didn't have a name and on the school CD next to their song it said No Name & it just stuck. [Ed.'s note: Would their first album be titled "Untitled"?] Loopy
No Name Maddox As you might know, the name on Charles Manson's birth certificate was No Name Maddox, as he was an unnamed orphan. Pretty cool sounding. I came up with the idea of naming my band that, but I looked in the paper and, lo and behold, there was a band of the same name playing a local club. JTO
No Perimeter It basically means "no boundaries" therefore implying "we can do anything" Marco
No Pocky For Kitty Well, it's from a Superchunk album title, but after you've been in Japan for a while, it's almost as funny as buying a can of "Beer Water." Rod
No Priorities There was a "priorities" section in my middle school agenda book. My best friend was calling me lazy and decided to write down "NO PRIORITIES". We decided that was going to be our band name. But neither of us play an instrument. Hey, singers! EGibbzz
No Privacy It's cool because it's funny. People like to walk in on me. Let's just leave it at that. jack
No Refunds Me and my friends were thinking of a band name so my friend had his phone in his pocket then he remembered that he didn't get a refund on it because he doesn't like the mobile Glen Morton
No Relation I don't know - it just sounds kind of clever. I was watching Tiny Toons and those friggin' rabbits kept saying it so now its stuck in my head! Coolio Janet Fan
No Room For Error I'm not sure, probably a combination of immagination and my computer. Steve
No S*** Sherlock One day Kim replied to some blatantly obvious comment that I made "No S*** Sherlock" and one day, we're gonna form a cool band with that name. So don't copy! Jamie and Kim
No Second Thoughts I came up with this idea because I sometimes don't think twice before I do something. LOL joe
No Self Respect I read that there is actually a band calling themselves Purple Vulture S***. I figure if you're the kind of person who would have a name like that, you may as well use this one. It says it all. HiredGoon
No Self Respect I came up with this name after finding out there was actually a band at one time called Purple Vulture S***. I figure if you would actually call yourself something like that, you can use this name and people would still get the message that you have "no self-respect." Lev007
No Stairs Needed My story behind this one is: Once I was playing my guitar inside an elevator and noted that it had great acoustics. It would be fun to record an album IN an elevator, just like Weird Al recorded a song in the dorm bathroom. Because of my music interests, it would probably be a Christian Rock band, so we'd do covers of "You Raise Me Up", "We Fall Down", and (a small diversion) "Stairway to Heaven". Other possible band names would be Falling Up(inspired by Shel Silverstein), and Ups and Downs. Artsy Dude Chris
No Stairway I nearly got our classic rock band named this due to our high concentration and quality of Led Zeppelin covers! I anticipated not playing "Stairway to Heaven" except as an encore! With a nod of inspiration from the music-store sign in Wayne's World, of course! The Snodgrass Family
No Strings Attached I thought of this name while talking with my friend. I thought about the N' Sync album "No Strings Attached" and thought it would make a good Band name. Pyrate
No Talent A** Clowns Funny line from the movie Office Space.  David Guizlo
