Names -> Cool Band Names -> P, Page 5

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.

Polyphemos its one of the only things i learned in english class that i can teach other people when they ask besides i also get to look up pictures of eyeballs ( P.S Polyphemos is the name of the cyclops in the odessey) Panda
Polyphonic Police It's music related. It sounds tough because cops are bad a**.  Steve Wilson
Polyrhythmic Kazoo Auction It doesn't mean anything, but it's very impressive sounding. Polyrhythmic = multiple rhythms played simultaneously (very hard for musicians, esp. drummers). Y. Dload
Polysyllabic Rednecks Contradictionality of terminology, anyone? something clever
The Polyunsaturates Healthier than the average rock band, because it doesn't hurt your heart.  Chandler Ping
Polyurinsane Kinda looks like polyurethane until you look closely! My pet parrot inspired me to create this name!  Mr E Machine (mark)
Pompitous How can you go wrong with Steve Miller's quasi-word from "The Joker"? Quentin Opping
Pompous Asses It's a common term...and anything with "ass" in it is shocking. Mike Lydic
Pon-l-o-ps Rampage i nicknamed a friend at camp ponelipes(pon l o ps) it stuck with me.i alway think of that name! ace
The Pony Bears Of Dairyland A friend of mine says that each US state brings a certain image to her mind. For some reason Wisconsin reminds her of a "My Little Pony" figure she once had but the image of it associated with Wisconsin is somehow transformed into a bear. Regina Haniger
Poo Fumes Not only disgusting,.it's a play on "Perfume".  Daniel K
The Poo Poo Gods another comedy rock name that I immaturely came up with beardangel555
PooKaka My mates and I were thinking of names for our band, and I noticed that someone had graffitied POOKAKA on a chair. So I thought it would rock as a name! <<3 lil <<3
PoolBoys A band in my town. The guys(Sean,Ryan and Mike) can up with this good name. They are the PoolBoys because everyone knows that pool boys get all the action.... MaryB
Poop In The Face Of Disgrace well you draw a picture of a face of disgrace (whoever you want) insert the drawing into the tiolet area and drop ur smelly terds on the face and laugh bobby joe
Poopstick McGee and the Flying Walruses Saw this on TVTropes... somewhere... IHaveNoBrain
Poopykiss My girlfriend gave me a dark chocolate Dove egg which I said looked like a turd, then she kissed me. I called it a poopykiss. Pretty gross, but funny. Greg Rimko
Pop & The E Strings Because I always break my E-String (on a guitar) and it goes pop. Joe
PoP (Prodigies of Peace) This is a lyric from the Red Hot Chili Peppers' song Righteous and the Wicked, and I've always thought it'd be cool. You could get people thinking with the PoP shortening, and the small 'o' works even better. HMC Hammer
The Pop Culture It just seems really cool. I don't know. It just does. SamVK
Pop My Cherry Cola It's all about the double entendre (think Spanish) I originally gave this name to a drink a bartender didn't have a name for. The drink was so good it warranted finding another way to say "screw me running". LeroyTanaka
Pop Rocks n Soda Inspired by the urban legend, that if you drink Coca Cola and have Pop Rocks at the same time, you'll explode (or something along those lines). I've actually tried it before out of curiosity and....nothing happened. o_O Hmm. FuNkY mOnKeY
Pop-Up Book of Phobias I saw it in a catalog >:) gabriel
Pop-ups For Pop-ups Ya know those pop ups that say they can get rid of pop ups? Ya... Its Stupid. B and S
The Popcorn Faries i got from my little cousin who thought that popcorn was popped by magic fairies. cayce
Popcorn The Baptist Animal I was at a natural history museum, and near where I was, a group of kids were looking at some mounted animals on display there. I overheard one kid say what sounded for all the world like "Popcorn, the Baptist animal". Naturally, such a randomly whimsical stringing together of words made me curious as to what he might actually have said. I thought I probably would never find out. But after that group of kids moved on I saw what exhibit they had been near when the baffling exclamation was made. The exhibit included a pronghorn, an animal of western North America, sometimes inaccurately called "antelope" (true antelopes being strictly native to the "old world"). Pronghorns are known for ability to run at extreme speeds. Then it suddenly occurred to me that the kid probably has said "Pronghorn, the fastest animal". On the way home I suddenly thought, Ah, my mishearing of that could make a good Cool Band Names submission! Often the beauty of misheard lyrics and ideas from other mishearings is that they give us phrases so random-appearing and cliche-free that one simply couldn't possibly contrive them. Without the mishearing, I doubt that anyone could ever just sit down and dream up a phrase so chaotically off-the-wall. Furthermore, as a potential band name, a phrase like this would be virtually certain to not be already taken. D. Melody Dole, MD
Popcult! Play on Pop Culture, naturally--cultures, if practiced heavily enough, can turn into a cult. Pop Culture-ure=Pop Cult. Make that one word, and tack on an exclamation point--Popcult! Yay! This just sounds cool, dunno why really, but I can imagine a pop art picture and the logo in comic book style letters. Hella awesome.  eVan Gonzalez
Pope Cathy The Gay Bagelizer I was stoned befor the new pope electon and my friend Sean(mono-brow) asked me who i wanted to become pope so I said that and we p***ed ourselves laughing for an hour (kids, don't drink more than 6 redbulls at a time) Frankie guess who
Popeye Married Bluto The idea of two very manly characters as married gay sweethearts sounds like way cool beans to me. Sparkina
Popeye's Chicken & The Biscuits I was eating Popeye's the other day, and I was like, 'Hey that's a f***in' cool name for a band. I might actually use it for my band, I'm not sure though. [Ed's note: I would first try to get permission from Popeye's HQ. walksman
PoppyVine Poppy and Vine are just cool names. Poppy is a flower that grows and has thousands of seeds that spreads its seeds. A Vine spreads and just keeps going. The two combined has meaning in different ways. They both spread.  Tonya
Popular Nobody I'm not popular at school but everybody says I'm the coolest person they know.So that makes me a popular nobody. Acasha
The Porch Monkeys There were these guys across the street playing on the porch. We went over and drank some beer with them. when they were done I askes what their band name was and they replied the porch band in a joking way. So i just added monkeys to it and we just sat their and laughed. It was cool  John
Pork Boilin' Poor Boys This is an actual band from Denver,CO. They are a hillbilly/swing/rock/jug band complete with a wash-tub bass player leading the group. According to Marty Jones, the lead member, there are a lot of Pork Boil suppers in Virginia. FrozenFish
Pork Side Because everyone has one. I was with my band, and we saw a box of pork meat that says "This side up". There it was "pork side". carl
Pork-Rib Bitch One day my friends and I were sitting outside on the grass at school when my friend Madii said "I better go do some homework" and as she stood up my friend Kiah said to her "You corporate bitch!" as a joke. Then Madii gets an offended/puzzled look on her face and says to Kiah "Did you just call me a pork-rib bitch?!" Everyone was laughing really hard at that one. Alice
Pornographic Grahamcrackers My friend Tom was telling me to bring grahamcrackers as a snack to a meeting. I told him that they sucked and then for no reason at all he said "Wait! Bring pornographic grahamcrackers!" Voila! Chris

Position 54 We had a band meeting and were going for something that had to do with Kama Sutra, we didn't like the wheelbarrow or the flying crane......so there. Geoff
Positive Negative Men Named after an episode of THE AVENGERS. One of the best episodes (with one of the most creative villains), and a pretty cool name at that. Todd W. Zimmerman
Posse why it is cool because posse is like another word to use for group or band. So Posse is just another way of saying it. How I came up with it is i listen to a group called the insane clown posse. I thought of posse as a group or band name so i thoght posse sounds cool. Adam Siders
Possede French for "Owned". Sam
Possesive Pronouns I was doing my English homework and I ran into the sentence "The dog's bone." I said, "Hey that's a possesive pronoun."  Sam Adams

Possessed Clowns sounded like a cool metal/punk band name (Ed:Only way to make clowns scarier, huh?) morgan
Possible Paradox I've always been fascinated by paradoxes. So whenever I think up song titles or band names I try to enclose a paradox in it. However, that is too easy, so I try to let the name contain two words that start with the same letter. The paradox here: a paradox constitutes an impossibility, hence can't be possible. Call it the paradox of paradoxes. TowerU
Post Metal Syndrome i actually played in a band named this, although we weren't metal and none of had any kind of syndrome either oldmangrady
Post Nasal Drip I actually found this in a "Sally Forth" cartoon, in which Hilary, the daughter mentions wanting to go to the Post Nasal Drip concert. It sounds like it could be a novelty group that sings about illnesses, especially colds. Donna W
Post No Bills I see this stenciled anywhere a band might want to put up posters. I thought, 'What a nifty way to advertise for free'. Shannon
Post No Bills I was walking down the street and saw it on the wall, and was like, "That would be a cool band name". Of course, they could never sell out, or the couldn't use the name. Chan just Chan
Postcard From A Plane Crash It's a song from Fall Out Boy. Simon

Potentially Violent Youth This came out of something in my Adolescent Psychology class, where we were discussing the characteristics of potentially violent youth. subject to change
Potluck Porpoises Well it totally fit because potluck is like food and all porpoises do is eat! TaY tAy

Pottymouth Would be a great name for a Techno/Electronic Artist karnov
Poultry Mouth Well one day my friend and I were thinking of cool band names, and I suggested "the restrooms" and he laughed really hard and started talking in a British accent and said things like, "Call me poultry mouth will ya? Well I'm gonna take a chicken and bite his head off!" It was very bizarre. Mitch
Poultrygeist Imagine a michevious chicken ghost, clucking in the dead of night and laying "mystery eggs!" Mongoose Eyeball
Pound 989 Just from a local kick a#* radio station. Their shortcut to call them on a certain phone service provider was pound 989. Always thought it may be a decent band name. C W Smith
Pound A Pint An excellent name, when playing in pubs and bars, people see that it says pound a pint outside and are attracted in under false pretenses in
The Pouring Blood I am a freak who loves blood. I was thinking about rain, blood, and how cool it would be to see blood in stead of rain pouring down. Amanda Day

The Powdered Toastmen the guy from ren and stimpy. in the form of a band....and pluralized. Adam
Power Lloyd The band I'm in. A reference to the 1989 movie "Say Anything." That guy
Power Off Einstein From a Simpsons episode (S12E9) where Homer becomes smart. He's annoying Moe in the bar, so as Moe hits him in the head with a board, Moe says "Power Off, Einstein". RevengeFromMars YouTube
Power Play My friend and I were making up songs and I say "Im going to play that power play part again." And thus, Power Play was born. Scooter
Power Tard I actually saw this written on a bus somewhere in Canada. I think it's supposed to be a type of engine or something, but I think it would make a better band name.  Kerry
The Poweyraiders I came up with this name oneday because my friends and I wanted a group name like the Power Rangers. We picked The Poweraiders because each of were drinking a different colored Powerade.  Ajg
Pownstars "Powned" is like "played and owned". It sounds like "pornstar", so yea.  adam
Poyzon It's a rendition of Poison, and it is like Mudvayne. I am actually trying to create a band for the name. I got stung by a wasp, and this is how I got the name. S.T.G.
pr0n Because pr0n is porno and everybody likes it. WoOy
Praalinay I have a friend who says words weird (sometimes she means to, sometimes she doesn't). Anyway, this was her take on the word 'praline'. Alice
Practicing Puberty You know its funny, because kids usually get scared when they are going through puberty, why would you want to practice it? Nich
Prairie Rehab Bluegrass band name derived from signs in the median of the interstates around urban midwestern areas. Mr Spooty
Pray The Pros The local paper had a contest called "Play The Pros", where you could pick the winners of NFL games, then send the form to the paper's address to win money. One time, I had a Freudian slip and said "Pray The Pros". , ironic since one had to pray to get all of the games right.. :) Hollywood Outsider
Pre-empts Regular Programming What TV Guide listings use to say between brackets (70s and 80s) when a certain show was not to be seen that evening because of specials (the networks also used to announce this). A perfect name for a band that subs at the last minute for an established group. T.V.
The Pre-Owned Instead of The Used, since "pre-owned" is a term occasionally used to describe stuff that is purchased used. JeReMy
The Prefects This name should be used by a band of rebelious types-making a sarcastic statement on the "A-students" & "leaders" of high school. I came up with it when I was having a conversation with my dad about how Prefects at my school are over-rated, and not as 'perfect' as everyone sees them. (Everyone has a history) It occured to me that a band named "The Prefects" would be a perfect & clear message that anyone can be looked up to, in matter of their act. Just because someone has a label meaning something of high status, doesn't mean they totally deserve better standards of quality than you.  Krystelle
The Pregnant Chads Remember the Florida voting scandal from the last presidential election? The pregnant chads are the raised areas on ballots that causes the vote count to be inaccurate.  whiteviolet
Premature Death I came up with this as I was writing a song, I was writing something about being born premature. Then I thought 'PREMATURE DEATH' and it makes sense. But it doesn't at the same time. Awesome heavy metal name. MOUSEY MAN
The Preps I came up with it as a prospective band name for my band, since we're going to be freshmen. Because at our school, being a freshman is called being a "prep." sexiibassist
Prescription Sandwich One girl I used to work with claimed she had got sandwiches on prescription. She also once claimed she was abducted by aliens and served alien stew for tea. You get the picture. JimboPagieboy
The Presence It is cool coz its kinda spooky mt2406
Press Play I came up with this a few years ago in 4th or 5th grade:2004 and 2006. When some one asked who it was, you'd answer, "Just Press Play." Since then I made a logo and came up with CD names/covers... but alas, I have no band... or musically inclined friends K@ Raisor
Pretend It's The End Me and my friend made up like a billion band names, some good and some crazy, and then i just thought of this one, which i liked very much ;p Lakkaball
Pretty Big PLunger We we're sitting around playing with the trombone players plunger head that he uses as a mute. Then the King of Fear was like "that's a pretty big plunger" then beans was like "you're a pretty big plunger" then i was like "pretty big plunger!" then it was our band name. www.prettybigplunger.com Matt Robertshaw

Primarily Negative Found it in a parent training book as a heading describing teenage behavior hippichic
Prime Sinister I changed the M to an S. Smashing! Rick
Primordial Lumpiness I found it while i was reading a boring thing for chemistry. it said something about the elements being formed from "a primordial lumpiness", and there it is!  Manwitdaplan
