Names -> Cool Band Names -> R, 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.

Rough 'n' Ready This is a great name for a rock and roll band, and has the obvious link to R'n'R. Mark Mac
RoughKut We were all sitting around trying to come up with a band name. We had to have a name before that weekend. One of the guys in the band looked around and said, "What about Rough Cut? We all look like we need a cut and a shave." We all laugh about it, but the name stuck with us, we just made a change in the way it was spelled. Now we call ourself The RoughKut Band. Donna Terry
Rouje Because it is short, snappy and easy to say, aswell as sounding really fluent, curling and beautiful! It mean red in French, which seems like you love to party, are wild and mad, and fun and bright! Mariana
Roulette It is cool a roulette is something that choses only one of something. So the band members were like , chosen. Jake

Round Ireland with a Fridge It's a book I have just completed by Tony Hawks this wierdo actually hitch-hyked around Ireland with a fridge so I believe he deserves a band named after his triumphs JEM
A Round Tuit I remember when my art teacher gave his students a cut-out circle with this message: "This is a round tuit, a memory tool. Every time you need to memorize something you need to do, you will get 'a round tuit'." Didn't work for me.  rocknroll
Roundhouse Emily This was the cross street where the drummer in a band I was in lived. We were going to name the band this but the band never got off the ground. Too bad, I designed the coolest logo I had ever created for this band. To this day one of the coolest I have ever seen if do say so myself. Zymurgy
RoundTriangle When I was a kid I could never come up with the word oval, so I would just call it round triangle. And that word has always stuck....sounds cool for a popfolk type band AnnieBannieWannie
Rovers O' Suede Sounds neat and quaint and has a hidden pun. Regina Haniger
Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen It's a Ren & Stimpy reference. IHaveNoBrain
Royal Flush Just cause it's sounds awesome H2OBoy
Roziz I like flowers, and it was cool. cocoa
The Rubber Band I see a lot of people at my school obssesed with rubberbands now a days. It has the word "Band" in it also. It just sounds cool. The Rubber Band. TRB Johnny
The Rubber Banjos Sort of what you get if you put "rubber band" and "banjos" together, as a "before and after" combination. D. Melody Dole, MD
Rubber Matinee Suggestive to say the least, without actually being obscene. Actually comes from WWI - if you brought recyclable rubber products to support the war effort, you could get into certain movie theatres for free.  Regina
Rubbly Ducklingy A cross between "ugly ducking" and "rubber ducky" Regina Haniger
The Rubicon "Rubicon" means "point of no return" (from Julius Caesar). The message of the name is, "If you like us now, you will forever." Sakura

Ruddager This is my friend's band. Believe it or not, it's his mother's first name. Collin
Rude Graces This is actually a variation of my principal's name from when I was a kid. His name was Rod Gracey. It means that a person can't perform a selfless kind act. Josh:Valos
Rudolph Bites The Dust Christmas party in math class; rudolph the red nosed reigndeer was playing for the hundreth time, and i got to doodling my way out of boredom. Santa ends up shooting Rudolph and strapping him to the hood of his truck. Besides being an absolutely amazing drawing, the name stuck in my mind as a good punk band name Scruff McGruff
Rudolph The Red Nosed Elk A friend sent me a picture he took at a Christmas show. In the picture someone had mounted the head of an elk, with a red "nose" affixed to it, trying to represent Rudolph the red nosed reindeer. But anyone familiar with the deer family could readily tell the difference. Reindeer and elk are rather distantly related in the context of the deer family, and their differences are quite apparent in terms of both coloration, and in terms of antler shape when they bear well-developped antlers, as the elk head in question did. Mary Byram
Rules of Engagement A really cool war term that would be amazing for a punk/hard rock band. Came up with it with my friend at lacrosse. Shane
Rumour Mill I was sitting in the car and talking about rumours. We started making up how we could 'kill' rumours, like stabbing etc. A Rumour Mill sounded the best. Kyo Lord XVII
The Rumpke Cans well...some people say it isn't cool but when i grow up and get into a band that will be my name!! It came up when i saw a sign that said Rumpke Garbage and also i know someone who worked there. melissa
Rumpled Silk Skins A play on Rumpelstiltskin, the famed story or a girl and her magical dwarf. When you have rumpled silk skins, that can't be good. Rockin' Roller
Run Over Bob A guy we new named Bob that actually got run over not once, but twice, and he has lived to tell the story. Ryan
Run, Jason, Run! Yes, it includes the punctuation. It's kind of like "run, Forrest, run!" but in cooler name terms. Syd
Runcible It's another far better name for a spoon-fork. Some variants of runcibles have knives on them, too. I saw one at Taco Bell once and my friend called me Runcible for the rest of the trip. Others said that a spoon/fork was a Spork, but isn't Spork some sort of meat owned by Hormel? Jon
Runnaway Busridin' Brides of Albuquerque They could could wear frumpy addidas joggers and a bulky knit sweaters draped over their heads and play the nightclub circut from Georgia to Las Vegas to New Mexico. Everyone in the country would desparately be on the lookout for them but the most likely place to find them is near a payphone in the Albuquerque Bus Station Badboybear
Running Jackets  Two of my roomies had their jackets missing from the living room, and we joked around that maybe the jackets ran off by themselves. I thought that would be cool to have a band with that name. Alpha
Running Kickstart well i was kickstarting my dirt bike and i had to get a running start! Koz
Running With Love I was looking at band names and one was "Running With Scissors." I thought of "Running With Love" because, sometimes, love can be more dangerous than anything else, for it is the only thing that can break your heart and, to me, that is the most painful thing in the world. Alyce
Running With Scissors well this was my bands old name a verry long time ago but we then changed it to sticker Dillon Meredith
Running with Scissors My parents/Teachers always told me not to run with scissors when I was a little kid, and thus, the contradiction of authority is implicit to the band name. Joey
Running With Scissors I think its cool cuz teachers would always say "don't run with scissors. By doing it your like a rebel, so a band that does stupid stuff even thought there told not too is detined to have a name like this. tinkerbell
Running With Scissors I dunno, a coupla years ago as I was walking w/scissors in my hand, "Running With Scissors" just popped into my head  Nicole
Running with Scissors I came up with it at work when one of my coworkers was running down the stairs with a pair of scissors and almost impaled me as he turned the corner. The name "running with scissors" just popped into my head and struck my funny bone! Logan
Ruptured Splene punk band name that rocks some one should use this name joe momma
Rush I like to play the position running back in football and you earn rushing yards so I thought of the name Rush. (There is already a band of this name - ed) Logan Osborn
Rush Delivery I always see Rush Delivery Avalible on TV for stuff and i thought it up Will
Rush To Judgement i came up with it bc ppl judge me and others to fast! * by what wear and shit... * i think its pretty awsome name for a band... you might think they are guna suck! and you listen to them and you'll be like wow... they are awsome! Gianna

Rust This is my friends and I's band. We decided we would be the "corruption of metal" and do what we can to bring back the good stuff. Specter

We both exclaimed "What rusty bustys u have!" dunc and lewis

The Rutherford Gold Foil Experiment A buddy and I came up with it in high school chem class (if you dont remember, it was the experiement the proved atoms had dense, positively-charged cores, or protons). Aside from the fact it was a major step in chemistry, it sounds cool crazy pete
Ryan Succop If Brian Anger is the most awsome name for an NFL punter, then Ryan Succop is the most dubious name for an NFL placekicker (if he doesn't have enough problems being a kicker). MOR
