Names -> Cool Band Names -> P, 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.

Pathetically Inept.... Just a great description of incompetency. Steve
Pathological Skeptics Whenevr somebody asks me to describe myself, I go like, "I'm a pathological skeptic". SO I thought it might be cool for like an emo band to name themselves that emopunkrocks
Pathway Falls I was playing guitar hero and just thought of it Jeremy Wilkerson
The Paul Hogan Experience I saw a CD by a band called The Mr T Experience and thought I should create a weird band name like that... G

Pavement Saints Just sounds cool, has a hard element and an element of spiritual meaning as well.  Art b
Pawns Pawns are the least powerful of the chess pieces. There are 8 of them, but they are usually cleared off in match play. Pawns are also prevalent in real life.  Mark Mywerd
PawPet This is what I call my cat sometimes. dpgsk8
Pax Metala I brought this one to my band and they thought that it was pretty stupid. I thought of it in History when my Teach was talkin about Pax Romana: The theory that if the world was conquered by Romans everything would be peaceful. So I thought that if the world was conquered by Metal then everything would be just fine. Hint to the name Pax Metala. I thought it was good. Wishbone Ash
Pay Him In Francs A lyric from a song my cousin has called "Underground McDonald's" Susan
Payphone Crankboy I remember back in Everett, WA there was a methamphetine dealer we knew who did all his buisness by a payphone. Crank is a slang term for meth and that's how we got Payphone Crankboy. Larry W.
PCBs in DDT Because "Polychlorinated Biphenyls in Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane" was a little too sophisticated. The Desert of the Real

Peach Fuzz It is something that sounds like a 60's pop band and it's funny. TMurph

Peaches, Cream, & Mixed Berry My teacher calls me and my two best friends this, when he's not busy calling us the Unholy Trinity. I guess we're just a cup of yogurt like that?? Anyway, it sounds like a great band name whether or not there's three members. Alex
Peanut Alert! It is from the back of wrappers from certain ice cream bars. I just always thought it was funny and would be a cool band name. David a.
The Peanut Butter & KY Jelly Sandwich Express I thought this would be catchy and memorable as a band name. It's a pun on "peanut butter and jelly."  Renard
Peanut Butter and Jelly Well there were the bands Hot Chocolate and Milk 'N' Cookies. So I figured why not a band with this name. Most everyone likes peanut butter and jelly so they'd be really popular. They'd probably be a fun pop/dance music band. Edward
Peanut Butter Trick It does the trick on everything we ate in college. A group of friends used the name to play in a few college bars... gian_the_man

The Pears Of Anguish I came up with it when a mate did a school lecture on torture techniques. The pear of anguish was one of the devices he mentioned. It just sounds well good. CJ69

Peckerwood Wristwatch It's a jail joke, but it sounds like a good name. de de de

The Pedigree of Sir Felix One night, my friend Elijah and I were sitting around and started typing a "cheezy romance novel", which is an activity we do quite often, and it came to be called "The Boot of Sir Felix". Later on that night, there came to be a part of the novel which referred to the pedigree of our hero, our sexy sir, Sir Felix, who is actually a dog. It was kind of crazy. yeah, so we added it to the list of outrageously outrageous band names (another thing we like to do) and so it began! Johnnie O. Bloom
Peeping Tom & the Private Eyes Something my older brother thought up. He said it just went with the flow, like Me First & the Gimme Gimmes. Stockton
Peiroette When Shot This one I came up with watching old war movies and every time someone got shot they would do a peiroette, or spin and fall. I know the term because a gay friend of mine does one when he is happy and taught us all this ballet s*** so I thaught of him. Frankie V
Pekinese Duck A play on either "Peking Duck" (a Chinese delicacy) or a Pekinese dog breed. Since some Chinese can eat either or depending on their financial situation.  Chong

PEN15 At first glance, it kinda looks like PENIS. Pretty cool Meathead
Pencil-Neck Geeks This is a song by pro-wrestler Fred "Classy" Blassie, who wanted to wipe out the title characters. And Blassie was Andy Kaufman's favorite wrestler.  Number 2
The Pendulum A cool word that stayed stuck in my head -easy to spell -easy to say Clarence
Penelope's Pissed-Off Based on the Hanna-Barbera cartoon "Penelope Pitstop", and a cool riot gi-r-r-r-r-rl band. ugh

Penis Flytrap I swear to God, this is what I thought my dad said. IHaveNoBrain
Penitent Tangent Penitent means to feel remorse for sin, and tangent means like a line.. Sounds cool - figure out your own meaning to it... SYNITH
Pennies In The Clothes Hamper Living with small children makes one say so many odd things.

Penny & The Loafers Duh, from penny loafers, the shoes. Oprah Taylor
Penny Arcade i was trying to come up with a band name...and i opened up the dictionary and the first word on the page was penny arcade...i thought it sounded interesting...but my other friends didn't agree Lindsay
PennyFront Nickelback? Why not Penny Front? allan fitz
Pennyless Paris Putas a great name for a grimy banging hardcore grinding grunge group, all female hot group wearing torn fishnet stockings and punked out florescent hair and pasty white, mime makeup with heart red smeared lipstick, and look so rough they would be too ugly to make a dime as hookers.  badboybear
The Pensive Pensive means..."deeply, often wistfully or dreamily thoughtful." It just makes good sense. Mat
Pentarky looking through the dictionary one day my friend and i came across this word. it means a government ruled by 5 people and at the time there were 5 people in our band...hence the name KyM
Penumbra it means half- light or shadow in spanish..kinda cool i thought.. Big Al
People Of Positivity They would be the exact opposite of Nabobs of Negativism. Very positive upbeat music that would uplift people and just make them feel good. Their songs would be very optimistic. Edward
Pep Kat Jones and the Titty-Twisters My best friend's boyfriends came to school one day and were all "We are gonna start a band, and our name is Pep Kat Jones and the Titty-Twisters!" Hillarious. It's a good name for a ska/2-step band. michelle
The Pepper Colony I thought the name leper colony was pretty good, in fact I was coming up with dozens of names. My wife began to mock me by writing altered versions of the names. This one is actually OK gibberer

Pepper Stars My grandma had a dog named Pepper with... digestive problems to say the least, and sometimes when Pepper would get up after sitting somewhere for a long time, she would leave a brown smear which my grandmother (being a polite and proper 1950's housewife) referred to as pepper stars. Ursula
Pepsidona Because I screw up the English Language all the time. I was trying to say baking soda, but was thinking pepcid AC.  Erin
The Perds It's a pimp and a nerd combined. Can't you picture a pimp black guy tearing up the guitar at the same time as a skinny nerdy white on the drum set? Mr. Pimpy Nerd
The Perfect Giraffes This comes from a theological argument I read recently which said that if God is the sum of all perfections, then He must, of necessity, be the Perfect Giraffe. Could be a good name for a Christian rock band. Jenny
Perfect Imperfections I was going to start a band with a few friends, but we could never finish songs we wrote for a long time (until we got better). We began to call the pieces of songs that we liked "perfect imperfections", because they were great, but incomplete. Amy Thompson
Perfection is Fake It's the name of a Train on myspace(: I thought it was cool. Pandora
Perfumed Nasal Mucus our gang had a contest to come up with the most disgusting name possible-I won hands down. manoj
Perky Turkey This came up because a girl flashed us, and if you didn't watch out, those "Perky Turkeys" would poke your eye out. Michael

Perrywinkle It sounds interesting while sitting in baking class. Shakia Diamond
Person of Walmart Some weird cross between the CBS show Person of Interest and the website People of Walmart. JeReMy
Personal Space Invaders A cross between personal space, and the video game Space Invaders, I got the idea from a t-shirt that a friend of mine had that had Garfield on the front saying you're invading my personal space. It sounds so modern and hip. I think because we are becoming an overcrowded world and every one is always complaining about not having enough space or time for themselves. I think they would kind of techno or "new wave" like the 80s bands like The Cars or maybe Blondie. I even came up with a title for their debut album, Nowhere To HIde. Ed

Pervert Croquet On BBCThree's Russell Howard's Good News, host Russell Howard called a martial art of lift weights with one's penis and swinging them "pervert croquet". JeReMy
The Peso Takers Mexican Banditos! Yay! The world needs more of them! How cool would that be-- a mexican rock band! They could weAR like Zorro masks or something! Pigertaws
The Pet Gods Sacrafice I was looking at this website, and my dog which is a pomeranian was sitting on my lap. I held her up in the air like Simba is on Iion king. I was like "sacrafice". Then I looked over at my cat, and was like this would be a cool band name - "Sacrafice Your Pets to the Gods." That sounded to long, like an ad. Then it was changed to Sacrafice Pets Gods, that was just DUMB. Then I thought up The Pet Gods Sacrafice. It sounds deep and dark. Almost 17th century gothic like. bad_gurl

Pet Rock A band named after the best invention ever. Transfersion
Peter and the Excavators I was watching this show on Discovery Channel one time, and these guys were building a suspension bridge or something, and the narrator said something like, "If Peter and the excavators don't get here on time, that could cause some serious problems." And I thought that it was a pretty good name. Mitch
Peter Jackoffsky I thought this band name would be a clever pun on the name of the 19th century composer Peter Tchaikovsky.  Renard
Petrified Garden Gnomes Hmmmm... it's cool because how many bands can you think of with the word petrified, garden, or gnomes in it? NONE! Something I came up with while driving past a house with gnomes on the lawn. I realize that gnomes are petrified. I just thought it was a tight name! Pigertaws
Petticoat Mafia  Just has a nice ring to it. It's a totally juxtaposition of two extremely different images. Miki Koishikawa

Pham's Nebraska Hat In college, I had a friend named Pham, who always wore a University of Nebraska hat (we went to school in Florida, and he wasn't even from Nebraska). The first single would be called "Big Red Corn." Ace!
Phantasmagoria A constantly changing scene composed of numerous elements. It could be compared to illusions, but the name sounds sweet!! Stuart
Phantasmagoria a quickly changing series of illusory or fantastic images, as experienced in dreams. a representation of different, often fantastic images, as seen in certain styles of art. it has something to do with dreamig... and when people first become a star the say its just like a dream...so this is just a diffrent name for a dream... and it sound kinda cool and like something that not many people would think of... alygal

I doubt if he's still alive." Well, I jumped up and said ,"Thats a great band name!" My friends thought I was nuts because they didn't hear what they had just said. So I wrote it out (changing it around a little) but they still thought I was crazy. But it struck me as cool, and I stick by it.  Giddy Gracer
