Names -> Cool Band Names -> N, Page 3

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.

No Time For Losers I thought of the Queen song "We are the Champions". No quitters in the band all winners in my book :) Freddie
No Time For The Truth I got it from a friend saying, "You want the truth, but you can't handle the truth, you, you, you truth handler", It was very funny! Cally
No Turn On Red I kept seeing the signs at traffic lights, and i was like HEY cool! Phoenix
No Vacancy I was driving to Ocean City, MD with my grandparents, and we were tring to think of a good band name. The band name had to be written around us, so I saw on one of the hotels it said, "No Vacancy" and I thought that what be a good band name. Alexis
No Yes I looked and wasn't able to find this anywhere. I like the way it sounds. G
No-Reception Radio That's what we call our "band" which probably doesn't even qualify as a band at all. The name perfectly describes our "music"...Which probably doesn't even qualify as music...at all. Mac
The No-Shows I was in music class and a group who was preforming had hardly any people in the group coz they were away sick. Then the teacher said "The rest of them are no-shows?" and I said that that was a cool name for a band,unfortunately my friend didn't agree. Rynn

The No-Trumps Perhaps a band opposed to Donald Trump's bid for the U.S. presidency? Blake DeKalb
Nobbsicles & Shitake Mushrooms A little inside joke with one of my friends. I think it sounds good. Junior
Nobby's Nuts I was in a pub with my mum, and they were serving a type of nuts called Nobby's Nuts. Me and my mum were talking about what to call our pop group, and my mum said "Nobby's Nuts" would be a good name for a pop group. sonikal
The Nobodies My friend and I were thinking of a cool band name when we finally just gave up. My friend then replied, "We're just a bunch of nobodies!" Mel
Nobody If your band sucks then it will make the listeners seem like good people. "Nobody sucks!" "Nobody shouldn't quit their day job." "I'm gonna stab Nobody in the eyes with a dull teething spoon." Bocefus the great
Nobody's Heroes It sounds cool, plus I figured that the way the band works. No one would want us to be their hero. andrew bergamo
Nobody's Onions My friend and I were looking up phrases from the 1920's to use in a history project. The term was "Know your Onions" but my friend thought it said "Nobody's Onions." I thought it sounded like a good band name, especially for a band that stinks so band that nobody will manage them. Jujubee
Nocturnal Damnation Pronounced (Damn-Nation) Basically, I've been cursed with unsteady hours into the Night, and I've switched my body to be being awake at night, and asleep in the day. It's like being permanently jetlagged in your own country. This name is cool, because the band would be sorta tired at day, which would be a metaphor for tired of being in the light. And therefore, they "roam the night" or in other words, the darkness.  Daniel Kang
Nocturnal Emissions During puberty, boys c**** themselves in there sleep(otherwise known as a wet dream) and NOCTURNAL EMISSION is the technical term for it JewBoyJwr
Nocturnal Light I thought of this name because it sounded cool and it is obvious lights are used when its dark. LEM(Live Every Moment)
The Nocturnal Majestic My sister and I were trying to come up with a band name that not only sounded cool, but meant something. The Nocturnal Majestic is a name about how magnificent the world is at night.. We didn't end up using it but we hope someone else might!! Faith
Noddaclu And a twist on the other entry here, Nodaclue was a local Boston band back in the 1980's. I believe they played reggae music on the south shore. JohnnyB
NoExit Me and my future band were walking and we saw the street sign. We thought it was really cool.  P-dogg
Noids Nerds from Brooklyn, maybe? IHaveNoBrain
The Noids! It's cool because it has no meaning, looks like a comic sound effect and is spelled with an exclamation mark. What else do you need? Paul Garner
Noise From Toys Inspired by all of the garage bands. alchem99
Noise Lesion It's a palindrome, and it'd be a great name for a punk or metal band. Jared
Noise Rises I was jamming with some friends in a basement. The guy singing notices a spider on a thread of web hanging right in front of the mic. We hit the chorus at full volume, the spider crawls back up the web to the rafter. At the end of the song, the singer points all this out to everyone (nobody else noticed at the time). I replied "going up the web won't help... noise rises". We played a couple of clubs under that name before disbanding. fobner
The Noise Tanks It's a group of vandals from the game "JET SET RADIO". Ben
Noisome A name for a really racy heavy metal group...........shocking lyrics.....in one of my fanfics (Jem) Jem and the Holograms are sweet girls, and they're on a tour.......the Misfits are also on tour, and their tour is called Noisome. Colorado Kid

Non-Fiction Real Tiger Brand Kids  This is on the tag of my shirt I just mixed it up that's all chow. hamp

Non-toxic Venom I don't know... G
Nonce (as in 'none' with a 'sss') I got this from Thrice. Thrice has got to be the coolest word ever. It got me thinking you have once, twice, thrice.... but what about no times? So, there you go... Nonce. Nona Urbizness
None But Us My friend and I were driving down the road to go to a party and the person hosting the party called my friend and asked if we brought any other people and my friend said nope none but us in the car. I thought it was funny lexis

The North American Giant Salamander Actually, this was a real band, for about thirty seconds. I was the bass player and also named the band. My xbf, who played guitar (the fact that he did not actually know how to play guitar did not dissuade him in the least), had been for a walk in a rural area that bordered the town we lived in, and came back claiming that he had seen a North American Giant Salamander in a small creek. My first thought, "That would be a great name for a band!" So, when we got together with a friend who also did not know how to play guitar, and a coworker who actually did know how to play the drums, well... The only reason I bothered to show up for what we called "practice" was so I could jam with the drummer. But alas he had to leave town in a hurry because he owed a lot of money that he didn't have to several different crack dealers. The Asbestos Mango
Northshore It's the name of the road i live on. Northshore Drive. It's a little too fruity for my band. Hope someone can use it. Ej
Nose Fart ...is a program for winamp for playing NSF files, which are NES music files. I like using "not so, fatso!" better, but anyway, the people making those things are trying like crazy to work the names around the letters "NSF". something clever
Nose Ratchet Thread Came to me in a cider induced dream. Steve Bee
Noseamic Bombers We made this up about a mate with a huge nose. We contrasted it with atomic bomb to make noseamic bomb. Ricco

Not Again! My cuz was playing a song and she kept playing it over and over and over again. I didn't want to hear it anymore so the sixth time she played it I said "not again!". Then I thought that it would be an awesome name for a band. Sierra
Not Drowning, Waving My friends and I thought it would be cool to get high at the beach at 2 o'clock in the morning. Trust me, not a good idea (what ever you do don't try this s**O at home, OK?) Anyway, one of my friends got in the ocean and started to float out to sea.I saw his hand go up, so I went to save him and he was like not drowning, just waving. So I thought Not Drowning, waving would be a cool name for a punk rock/emo band.  Kelsey

The Not So Fresh This could be a band of, shall we say, the not so clean. I was walking in to a Starbucks and some homeless guy, with a powerful odor, walked right up to my face and said, "You know a cup of coffee sounds good right now.". I didn't buy him one because he was so aggressive about it. But I did think, "If he was in a band, they could be the...." well, you know. faze1

Nothing To Gain I lost my band to their girlfriends so I felt like I had nothing to gain! Justin

Nova Gnome An art project from my HS days brought along this name. The task was to actually design our own CD covers by the conjunction of random words written on pieces of paper that were draw from a hat. Coming up with fourteen names for tracks that related to a gnome was a little strange though.  C.M.
Novacaine My friend, Ciara and I were listening to Green Day's "Give me Novacaine" and I guess we thought it was cool.  Audrey Ingalls
Novelty Oath I came up with this name for a school project where we had to actually make a pretend band. I was looking through a dictionary for a name and I saw the word novelty which means something new or unusual. Who doesn't want to be new or unusual? Then I saw oath/ a solemn promise. I think it's awsome. Marie Ipock

Now In Stores My friends and I were sitting in Bio, and I thought how werid it would be if a band's name was Now In Stores, and their first album was "Now in Stores" if the radio wanted to announce it, they'd have to say "Now In Stores', 'Now in Stores' is Now in stores!!" Then my friend pointed out that they'd probably mess it up and say: "Now In Stores' self titled album, is now available!" Mitzi
Nowe Klue My band members and I were thinking of a name. So I asked my brother, and he said that he didn't have a clue on what name was good. I went to my band and said that he had no clue. But it was on e-mail, and I typed "nowe klue". Our drummer suggested we use Nowe Klue. Jordan

Nuclear Buddha This came up when Afghanistan was destroying their 100-foot Buddha statues for "idolatry" or some such; we were deciding what the UN should do to make the punishment fit the crime, and came up with airdropping giant Buddha statues all across the country. One of the less subtle members of the group said that the largest one should be a nuke in disguise, and things went downhill from there . . . J. B. Ramon
Nuclear Crayon You know those people who pronounce 'nuclear' as 'nucular?' And the ones who pronounce 'crayon' as 'crown?' And the ones who do both? Wow... I just found it amusing that this could sound completely different depending on who says it. If any of my friends ever start a band I'm going to insist that they call it this. Smallone
Nuclear Easter Egg Well last Easter, I helped my parents hide Easter eggs for my little sister to find. She couldn't find one, and we forgot where we put it. So about 2 months later, my dad stepped on it and cracked it open. It was the worst smell I've ever smelled. So hints the name Nuclear Easter Egg. patrick
