Names -> Cool Band Names -> P, Page 4

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.

The Pixi Stick Disaster I was riding the bus home in 8th grade and this boy had like 4 huge bags of Pixi sticks and gave some to me and a phew other people on the bus. Pat, and others were POURING out the pixi dust onto the phloor of the back of the bus. Two days (as i recall) later, i came home and read a message on my answering machine. It was from my AP (mr.handy) at my school. It was like 2 1/2 minutes long..which is a lloonnggg time phor a message. At one point he said, "Sorrowfully, your daughter was involved in the Pixi Stick Disaster on the bus number 5226. .." Ever since than I thought it would be a PERFECT band name because phor one is sounds phantastic, and phor another, he said, "sorrowfully,you daughter [is] involved in the Pixi Stick Disaster" I think that makes it sounds so typical like- parents againsnt music type thing and i LOVE IT.. ever since than- which has been 2 years ago, i've loved it and currently am in a band called.

Pixieland Band A pun on the term "Dixieland band", a pretty much generic term, although actual bands have had both "Dixieland" and "band" in their names. Just what would constitute "Pixieland" music as represented by "Pixieland Band" would be curious to find out. Blake DeKalb

Plan B I like it because it is like Plan A never works, then Plan B always ends up working. This could be good for a band who plays all types of music. Miranda

Plan: B It describes a band that is been around for a while, and it is cool. D.J
Planet  enemy909
Planet Dearth The word "dearth" (rhymes with "earth") means "scarcity" or "famine."

The Plastics For all the "Mean Girls" fans. A simply perfect name for an all girl band! .*.*.Krista.*.*.
Platinum Black Images of sparkly yet colourless. Probably good for dark guitar sounds melded with a large, funky brass section. (PS It's a black powder used to catalyse hydrogenation reactions.) Urban Spaceman
Platinum Noise Was trying to think of a name for that Nike Presto shoe awhile back, and while in the movies, my girlfriend and I saw the slide that says "Silence is Golden" so I said "Yeah, but noise is platinum." Switch it around and it sounds really cool. Greg Rimko
Platinum Recliner We thought of the Aussie band Silverchair. We changed 'silver' to 'platinum' and 'chair' to 'recliner' and came up with Platinum Recliner.

Platypus Rex to of the strangest creatures ever...Sound like an interesting race of animal to me... Georgie
Play on Words (P.O.W.) I think there's a band called Play or P.O.W. already, but who cares. Anyway, I like playing with words (e.g. Y.A.M.S. for You Are My Sunshine, C.U.T.S. for Clogging Up The Sink....) so I decided to put this up. Playing with words gives me a kick whenever I find a good one, like Y.A.M.S., C.U.T.S., L.I.V.E. (Life is Very Entertaining)... you get the picture. Raedyn
Playing In Traffic Nothing screams "rock/metal" like intense or dangerous situations (for band names), and what's more dangerous than playing in traffic? R. U. Obsest
Playpen of Tidiness The polar opposite of Cradle of Filth, Playpen of Tidiness would play not Goth Metal but rather New Wave Calypso music. Check out their keyboard-laced cover of the Banana Boat Song! Jason Reeher
Plaztic Manakins When I was trying to come up with some names for my band, I thought about this name, but decided on something else. Kimberly
