Names -> Cool Band Names -> P, 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.

P***y Spank I saw an album cover by Lords of Acid with a cat hissing on the front and said aloud, "That p****'s about to be spanked." My friend thought it'd be a great band name with a hissing cat on the album cover looking backwards at a gloved hand. An all girl band, of course...but I never had the drive or motivation to do it. Jenja
P.B.J.C.T.S  It stands for "Peanut Butter Jelly Chicken Tuna Sandwich". If you don't know where I came up with this, buy Eminem's "Encore", and then listen to "Rain Man".  phamilto
P.H.K say it aloud... souns so HK! lmao... its actually an abreviation of an acrostic poem my friend wrote about four years ago... it goes as such; Ping Pong King Kong in Hong Kong  M
P.M.S My friend Lauren and I were sitting in science trying to come up with a name for a girl band and I imediately thought of PMS and Lauren lengthened it to mean Post Mortuary Stress. Trish

P.O.C. It means Point of Contact, which is a War term. And our band was just looking through a War dictionary, and there it stuck. S.T.G.
P.O.S it wuld be a mean ska/punk band name.. NB: P.O.S = piece of s***. SAz
P.O.W Prisoners Of War.  soupkitchen
P4A It's a good punk name. I got it from an organization called People 4 Awareness, which donates mosquito nets to Africa. Only this one is "People 4 Anarchy". CRS
Pachinko Urbanity Some band names are strange.. I saw "pachinko urbanity" on an ad for a new pachinko place near our house, and my dad's like, "hey cool there's a band playing here!... no wait that's just the name of the place." jeannie
Pacific Cost Highway (PCH) i was just thinking of Pacific coast highway and thought id put it on here..maybe someone will like it..who knows... Cory

PAinLe$$ I once was having a rubella vaccination in my local health clinic in my home town of San Diego, CA. when my doctor said "It will be quick and PAINLESS" I thought it would be a cool band name for a rock band. I-am-to-lazy-to- type- my- name
paintedplastic Saw it on a box. whyshoulditellu

Pajama Submission After the pajamas are submitted, you're naked! That's where the fun starts! techthisout
Pale Contraband  Beaker, Blue
Palestinian Palates I just like the sound of it and think it would be nice for a band. Palestine always sounded like a cool name to me and it goes nice with palate. This would suit a hard rock band. The Glam Queen
Paleus This is the technical or "latin" term for the cap of the mushroom. I always thought this would make a neat name for a psychadelic 60's rock music band but in light of todays acidrock music it could also be a cool technoband name. Go figgah... holy of holies
Pallets  We were having pallet wars on Halo 3 Alfonso Chokelini
Palpatine's Undershorts Star Wars fans rejoice! Finally there is a band for us! IHaveNoBrain
Paluka It is cool because it's not original. I came up with this name when I was looking at the back of a fudge slice wrapper. Dane Place
Pancake Phenomenon They all have to wear suspenders cause they have flat asses and all could have flat top doos' and play with all the amps flat open, and all thier groupies are flat chested. What if they could blast tunes so good it could flatten your head. badboybear
Pancreas I got it from an episode of DuckMan one time.... i dunno... cmon it just sounds cool!! Who cares what it actually is or does (it's a part of your body, ppl) look at Incubus... w/e... I think it sounds cool I dunt care what you guys think Mary Jane
Panda On Fire  It's an inside joke between me and my friend. She says if you said that, people would actually look for it. They would think it was cute or something. That's what she thinks. She thinks it sounds cute. And it does. Katie
Panda Peeves Its alliteration, and it has my favorite animal in the name. Holly
Pandamonium we had to find another word for confusion in my english class and i found Pandamonium and itsounded pretty cool taz
Pandemonium Pleasure I think this would make an awesome band name. Please feel free use it unless another band has taken it already. Hope P.
Pander I was looking through some words of mythology and came across it. It is in Homer's ILIAD. Andy

Pandora's Box In greek mythology, Pandora's box held all the emotions in the world until one day it was opened and the emotions of anger, , , (basically the seven ly ones) later it was opened to release hope for the people. Kite

Pandora's LunchBox heh, I was playing a game and at one point the characters talked about Pandoras box, and I, having the nickname LunchBox, thought it sounded cool. LunchBox
Pandora's Paradigm I think it's cool cause obviously everyone knows the story about Pandora's Box but a paradigm is a shift. Since Pandora's Box is full of emotions, each one must shift around til one emotion becomes more dominant than the rest. Sorta like a split personality. Imma make that mine. David
Pangolin Peyote Makes me think of tough-shelled marsupials smoking Navajo pipes. Maybe this could work for a trippy country-rock band, like Poco or The Eagles on acid. Scrappleberry
Panic Button I came up with it when I was looking at my keyboard.I stuck a red button on it and it said "PANIC",so I just went with it. I like it because when you flip out, you press the panic button(hehe). ub3rh4x0r
Pankies! It does have a story to it (yay). So my friend was playing counterstrike and his friend was saying the, "Do you like waffles?" thing. He then said, "Do you like pankies?" (pancakes of course) and the people that have mics carry on to cuss him out. The End. not-so-superman
Pansysmack Well, this started off as my sister thinking up creative nicknames for me, but I was thinkin it would make a pretty cool band name.... Alex Rollheiser

Paperclip Retainers when I was a kid we used to make fake retainers from paperclips and where them around school. When I remembred this odd thing I did as a kid I thought it would be a cool name for a band cause only the weird kids who used to actually want braces or retainers would get it. sneakypixie
Papercut I was trying to come up with a band name at the end of one of our math classes and I asked this other kid what a cool band name would be, and he said papercut because even though a papercut is small it hurts really bad and bleeds alot.  metalrocker#9

The Parking Tickets I came up with it after I saw my friend's dad's parking ticket in the table Fatima
The Parralax I was looking through the dictionary and found the word 'parralax'. I don't care what it means. But it sounded like something Muse would play. (Muse is a huge influence to me.) [Ed.'s note: It's actually spelled 'parallax', and it means 'the apparent displacement of an observed object due to a change in the position of the observer'.] chris scoggins
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Time It's a lyric from the Simon & Garfunkel classic "Scarborough Fair". And since Scarborough is a city in Canada, it would be perfect for a Canadian band. Simon & Garfield

Part-Time Christian Lunch A combination of two former Alternative Tentacles records bands Part-Time Christians and Christian Lunch doing a duet album. I actually suggest this to the company as an idea, but of course, it never fell through. The Skuz
Party Da Freak I once was singing a French Christmas song at a friend's house. It's words included "Melchior et Balthazar sont partis d'Afrique avec le roi Gaspar" ("Melchoir and Balthazar have left Africa with the king Gaspar"). My friend's young daughter later asked me to "sing that Party Da Freak song again". She had heard "partis d'Afrique" ("left [from] Africa") as Party Da Freak. (Incidentally, I believe the song I was singing is somewhat tongue-in-cheek. There is some serious disagreement as to where the Magi came from, but this song has the only claim I've encountered that they came from Africa.) Regina Haniger
Party Enema Sounds almost like "party animal". And if everything goes right, you'l have a "party in your pants". Orel Hershyster
