Names -> Cool Band Names -> S, 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.

S.O.N. This name just kinda clicked when i was playin' guitar! It means Sound Of Nothing. Rock!!! Onyx
S.S.D.D (Same Shit Different Day) Was sittin down listening to Metallica after a shit day, then it hit me. I get the same old shit every day. The only thing that changes it the day itself. Thought it might relate to some people and make a good band name. M3TAC;-C;3AD
S.T.E.P. Up The band and I were trying to find a name and we tryed puting all of the first letters of are name in there. "S.T.E.P." stands for Stephanie, Tyler, Ester, and Peter. Try just taking the first letter of each name and making a word out of it. Tyler

Sab the Hab One of my friends likes the Montreal Canadiens. This is my secret alias--not a secret anymore, eh?--for her. aldrAea
Sabatoge Just sounds cool to me. Hugh G. Reckshin
Sabog It's my cousins' last name. A good name for a soft rock band. Rachel
Sabotage Testicle Just say it aloud, I mean cummon. It screams pain, a sense of urgency, and it'd be great for any metal band. It'd make for a great self-titled album/song as well! cb
Sabu Points at Pigeons Sabu is a wrestler and he does this entrance taunt by pointing up at the sky to honour the original shiek (another wrestler), but apparently, one night before he started using this a a tribute, he was coming into the ring to wrestle a match, and he saw a pigeon on the ceiling and so he wanted to shoe the referee so he pointed at it. hamp
Saccharomyces Cerevisiae in bio one day saccharomyces cerevisiae is the fungus or something that they use to make alcohol, would be a great name for a heavy metal band , u no, fungus, alcohol, rock stars..... niamh
Sacrafice I think its cool because my band is a christian band and We want to be sacrafices for God because we love Him soo much. God gave me this dream that we'd be famous and He gave me this name so I really have to thank God. One Day I will be a famous singer and actress for the Lord Jesus Christ.  Carol Ann
The Sacraments I've always liked this name. It's the album name of the new Lamb of God cd, so it sounds cool and my band liked it. corey
Sacred Steak Well, cows here in America get eaten, even if they are sacred in some places. GlamRockNinjaLord
The Sacrificial Lambs What they say about people who are pawns or scapegoats. They are figuratively being led to slaughter. Sad, but not so tragic once you know the origin. Mark Mywerd
Sacriligeous Monk It's like a contradiction. Jack
Sad Angry Babies A good name for one of those new indie pop bands, I got this name from taking a picture of my infant nephew while he was wailing, taking his open eyes from another picture and pasting them over his closed ones. Imagine a red-faced crying baby with open eyes - it's a scary sight. ProAlien
Sadist Pigeons I came up with this by thinking up silly things one day =] Kon

Sadistic Puppets I thought of it one night when I was looking stuff up on the computer. Also, I am awsome when it comes to creativity. Violetwolf3

Sadukiii I got it from the game "Saduko" and a good Green Day album 'Dookie', So I just put them together. Llama man 40000000000000
Safe to Say I think it's safe to say that would be a good name for whatever kind of band... and there's no story behind this. It thought it up through pure genius.. even SAFE TO STAY would be good... actually those might be band names already. Either way, they are original to me. Ralph Nader
Safety Amongst Chimps I came up with this back in high school when I felt alienated and alone. I noticed that whenever I felt like straying from the status quo, I would be dragged down by the same people I was trying to avoid. The only time I was not harassed was when I did not stand out from the other "Chimps". Thus the band name safety amongst chimps. Ryan R.
Safety In Numbers Mum and I were in the car going shopping and we were talking about her old days when she danced at discos, and she said, "well, there's definitely safety in numbers!!' and I was like, cool, that makes an awesome band name!! I can imagine it for rock or pop punk or something.  rachelle

Sailor Thea and the Apple Chomps Let's just say, my silly math teacher had a thing for apples.  Joana
Saint Genevieve and the Sexy Opossums 1. Saint Genevieve - I was named after her 2. Opossums - my friend was running about claiming that he had accomplished several feats that only doable by opossoms; after which he claimed that he was, indeed, an opossum. 3. I was going for the whole 'name and the adjective blanks' structure for a band, so I just threw in 'sexy' for the hell of it.  genny
Saint Valiant It's the saint of the brave, how cool would that be? Christian Punk band, maybe.  sarcastik
Saint Vincent's and the Grenadines it is a caribbean island nation, i thought it sounded cool and sort a like a band elle
Saki Trip Phrase coined by my mates after a particularly heavy night in a Japanese restaurant; now used when anyone gets trashed on something they're not used to. I know "saki" is spelled wrong but it looks cooler this way.  Kristof
Salad Cream Well one day i was struggling over a band name and thought the best kind would be a really random one. So i flicked through a cook book and BAM. There it was, (WARNING: only for the really adventurous) Billy
The Salad Tissues I Was Eating Tea And My Lettuce Came Off The Plate And Fell On A Napkin Beside It. Nigel
The Salavation Air Force Natural progression (from Salvation Army?)  Charlie Swift
Salmon Eyes It would be a nice name for a punk band. I got it when my family was watching "A Christmas Story" when I was a little kid. The old man recieved a can of Simoniz and my sister, thinking it was something else, said, "Why would anyone want a can of salmon eyes?" Tejayes
Salt A cool name for a Christian band, because of the whole "Salt and light of the world" thing. Also good because of the "flavor" element in music as well. I'd just be waiting for the first album entitled SODIUM CHLORIDE or SHAKER. There's the downside: the jokes may just come too easy. Rachel
Saltlick Nothing cooler than a block of salt for bovines>>>> Matthew J.
Salty the Pocket Knife It's Screech's band from Saved by the BELL!!!! Jim Morrison
Salvador's Dolly The idea for this figurine died on the vine, when Mattel tried to market the first doll with 5 breast's and a melting clock for a face. It DID however sell millions overseas in 1983, when it was re-named "Chernobyl Barbie". princejellyfish

Samuel L. Jackson Five It's Samuel L. Jackson... badass. and the Jackson 5... classic. Best for a band that doesn't have 5 members.  David

Sandy Duncan's Eye This is a real name I saw in an L.A. paper. It has such disregard for worrying about offending Mrs. Duncan and it's so out there as a reference that I never forgot it. Clubber
Sane Asylum Because there is no such thing as a Sane Asylum. I came up with this when I was looking at other band names on the web, I thought to myself what would sound cooler than the things I was looking at? Sane Asylum. Great name for an emo band or something like blink 182. Tots
Sanga Nalanga It means "no worries" in Fijian.  irene
Sanity's Dark Side This is cool, because it sounds ominous. It sounds good for a metal band. I came up with it after thinking long and hard about how many stupid, seemingly insane people there are, but rather than saying 'Insanity's Dark Side', I decided to take something people always say is a good thing, and twist it in a way that'll (hopefully) make people think. Super
Santa Lives In Sweden I was looking at a map of Scandinavia and in Sweden there is a town called Zanta. james russell

Sarcasma My friends and I were running around in our high school in the dark, pretending that we were spoofs of Charlie's Angels. I was Sarcasma, (after my biting sarcasm). I realized today that it would be a cute name, but for a female band, because if it were for a guy band, it would be like another Barenaked Ladies. As in, if they start out as unknowns, everybody could be confused about gender. Sarcasma Creator
Sarcastic In Elastic C'mon! You've gotta like that? Ryhming a band name is COOOOOOL!!!!! I thought of the word sarcastic-I write a lot of stories so I always use sarcastic-and then i thought of a bag-an elastic bag-and bingo!!! Ever make a band, that's a cool name!! Dylo B
Sarcastic Prophet This is a nod to the prophet Michaiah who, in 1 Kings 22:15, sarcastically tells Ahab to "go up" into battle and "prosper", knowing full well Ahab would be killed. Marcus
Sarcofogus I'm a pretty musical guy, and my redneckish best friend likes to make fun of my emo-rock companions and me. So when I was talking about potential band names, he half-jokingly said, "What about Sarcofogus?" In a Metallica sort of voice. I would never use it, but it is a pretty sweet name. lyrical gangsta

Satanic Thunderbunnies A cousin of mine once told me to think of the least frightening evil thing I could imagine. GlamRockNinjaLord
Satin Death Beds The thought of rich people dying, just as we do, brings comfort to me. Satin is a very nice material, so it just seems appropriate. The point of the name is that we all die, even those who think they'll reign forever. L
Satonic Toes Yes I said it,Satonic Toes. Isn't everyone afraid that there toes will eat them as they sleep? I am. sydney

Sausage Factory my friend came up wiv it at lunch at school. sitting in our form room listening to Fear Factory, his favourite food is sausages and he was getting a craving, and when askt wot we were listening to, sausage factory just slipt out!!!!! fictional
Sausage Walletz An aquaintance of mine name Lil' Joey, always siad that even though you coudn't put one in your pocket that they were the best kind of wallets to have. Some could be more expensive than others, and even though sone were generous they could be tight at the same time. He said no matter what, there was no such thing as a bad one, they were all good. Go figure. badboybear
Savage Cabbage Just sounded like a cool band name!!! Alex Lively
the savage nature of man found this phrase while studying william golding. good name for an alternative band or something. apt
Savage Raspberry "Framboise sauvage" is a French drink - the name means "Wild Raspberry". "Sauvage" sounds a bit like "savage." Hence, "Savage Raspberry." That's it, really. Red Tim
Savage Soul Our new band was needing a name. we all were in the process of putting in our own ideas. I liked the name savage but thought it needed another word, so out of several different ideas, I let my friends and my band bros choose their favorite name off my list of potential names. instantly everyone liked "savage soul". it sounds badass (like a rock band name should be) and there it was! Bret Dean

Saverg i just think making new cool sounding words is better for alias' or band names.. and look! it says graves backwards.. o.O mike
