Names -> Cool Band Names -> S, Page 11

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.

Submitted by:
Stolen Battlewounds I'm not positive this isn't taken. But as far as I know, it's not. The word 'battlewounds' was in my mind from somewhere, and 'stolen' was completely genereated. However, together I like them. I feel like it implies sacrifice in a loving way. Think about it. To step into a battle and take the pain for something that's not meant for you. It's bittersweet. david. hi.
Stolen Chihuahua I was playing baseball one night, and this guy walks up to me and asks if I've seen a chihuahua. "Looks like the Taco bell dog" Ends up, someone broke into the guys truck and stole his chihuahua. m a t t h e w
Stone Antica It is the Gaurding Demon of Death in the Roman Greek times. It's cool how it sounds like stone attic!!!! Stoner man!!!!!!!!  Super Marijuana Bros.
Stone Faith When I was thinking of band names for my churches band name I saw a statue and thought a stone statue. So I came up with Stone Faith. Buckeyefan18
Stoned Immaculate I got this of of a Doors song Jim Morrison says a little saying and then says, "Out here we is stoned immaculate."  Vercetti Jones
Stoned Wheat Saw it on a box of crackers. Thought it would be a great name for a band. TriXXX
stop the itch this dude from my band was sitting in one of his classes at school and saw this newspaper article that said stopping the itch, so he came up with stop the itch. its awesome Special K
Storm Surge It's the centre of the turbulence. It's the master of the tempest. It's not where anyone wants to be and a terror if are there. Escape! Now while you still can. Eliyah
Storm Warning This would be a great name for a band no matter what style of rock or pop music they did. Makes them sound slightly dangerous. Edward
A Storm Within Me friend said something that sounded like astor within so i came up with this troymoney$
Story of the Day There's a funny story behind this one but it's too long to tell on here. lol. I'll just say someone texted someone else something very very bad off of MY phone and I told my friend it was the story of my day. Pandora
Story Told i thought that every story has already had to been told or else it wouldnt be a story... and usually every song has a story to it... so every story is told.  shelby
Stowaway i am shocked cuz nobody put this on the list.a band cant get a better name than this.what can be the thing cooler than getting onboard without a ticket.the word itself has a spirit of revoltism emosky68
Straight Curve how in the hell can you get a strraight curve it makes no sence and thats why its good. glen lee
Straight F Students College rock band!!! Lazy hot guys with an interest for alochol and orgies. :P Thought of the name right now and I have many more on the come. Just finished a song called "I Got The Hots For My Teacher" which would go perfect with the band name.  Hot Rock Chicks (do their own Piercing)Comingsoon
Straight Forward It tells that a band tells it like it is, no political correctness crap. jakbe nimble
Straight on Dicks Me and a friend were giving someone directions, and he said "go straight on Dix (avenue). and we both looked at each other and chortled. It kinda has a turbonegro-esque faux homo-erotic vibe to it. Nick
Strange Bedfellows Heard the phrase tossed around a bit. Perfect for an up-and-coming band. Yoidy
Strangelet Strangelet is a particle that could destroy the whole universe. That's doesn't make any sense to be a band name,but sounds okay to me. Paolo
Strangers In Town When you go from state to state, town to town, you are a stranger until you get fans. Will
Straphanger and the Tokenettes I thought this would be a funny name for a 50s band or a modern-day retro-50s band even. A straphanger is a subway communter. You (used to) pay by tokens. Jack Case
Stratocasters It's a kind of guitar. The name alone just sounds sweet. Like Alexisonfire. Erik
Stratosphere I though it sounded cool because I was listening to "From First To Last" He sings like really high for a guy. I was like "Dude is in the Stratosphere. . ." hizNATCH
StratusFear I was just sitting thinking about clouds. This is a kinda play on words as when the clouds turn black you get StratusFear (stratosphere). This would be good for a metal/rock band. hawyermaw
Straw Dogs Sort of play on "Stray Cats" and also a cult 70s film.  pip
The Stray Bullet I find this name totally awesome! It is just sooo visual. I thought of ia bullet as a rocker in our society of today. You know.. he is a stray from everyone else ( a stray from society). shane
Stray Dog Strut It's the name of a Cowboy Bebop episode, but it's so darn cool! To 'strut' means to 'walk pretentiously' or 'swagger' and a 'stray dog' just sounds like freedom and streetsmarts, ya know?  Whitney
Streamlined Conscience It just seems so dark, but it's good enough to confuse all the 'over controlling paranoid' parents to think it's appropiate. It will fit the emo or metal bands.  tayla
Strep In The Daycare I was visiting family and there was strep going around in my cousins daycare... Sam Tom
Strepth Throat I was sick one time and when I tried to hum a song and when I said, "Stupid strepth throat" out loud. Sammy
Strictly Plutonic A non-sexual relationship between nuclear engineers? Or a techno group. RevengeFromMars YouTube
The Stride my cousin and i were thinking about what a band that was a cross between the white stripes/the hives/the vines would be like and we came up with the name 'the stride'.  saira
Strike Down the Angels My friend came up with it. The band would be a heavy metal, Disturbed type music m roosevelt
Strikeout Kings Great for any nerdy band. The members probably strike out with women all the time. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Stronger Than Dirt Hey, it sold detergent and it can sell CDs too. And besides, Jim Morrison sang it at the end of "Touch Me". rocknroll
Strumstar Hammer This is actually the title of a secret page on the homstarrunner.com website, but doesn't it sound like a great metal (or perhaps even country) band? christie
Strych 9 I was looking in the dictionary and found this (strychnine). It means a poisonous type of gas. Pretty tight. PHIL
Stubby Pecker and the Four Skins Larry, a high school friend told me it. Cheam Peake
Stuck In Neutral Kind of a synonym for "Getting Nowhere Fast". This was actually the original name of our basement band, but we eventually scrapped it. Nathan
Stuck In The Tongue Ow! I just got a little bit of plastic stuck in my tongue while reading these pages and realised it was a cool band name. But was it worth bleeding my tongue? The Duck
Stuck on Repeat Imagine a song that was stuck on repeat but could never get old? Hopefully the band with this name can be that good! Chuk
Stuck On Repeat I thought of it when i was listening to SUM41's lyrics from its new album "Does this look infected?". I was listening to track ten, it said "Silence is ringing in my head, STUCK ON REPEAT.." and I just thought it was a great name. Don't like it? Meh, I don't care. At least I LIKE IT so :-P CHAZfromFOH
Stuck With My Ex-wife Well , It would probably be a nightmare. The first single should be "Returning Gifts" Acidic36
The Studded Dildos What could be worse, a person who would enjoy this sort of thing, or a person who would write and sing about it? Dark One
Students Many are still trying to learn to be Gods of music. NICKI
Students on Y There was a sign above the band room that was supposed to say students only, but it was missing the l Cpt. Neeb
The Stuff I was thinking of british like band names one day and this popped up cause all they ever sing about is random stuff. hap
Stuff the Love You'll Its from an old pizza hut commercial, where someone spoke backwards. When you say it it sounds risque. Someone Else
Stuff, Etc. It would be a shortcut to listing a few items and et cetera. (Like: Guitar, bass, etc.) Indy
Stump Grinder I heard this as an idea for a heavy rock band name  Richard Houghton
Stumpinghame It implies heavy rock (IMHO). It is the name of an imaginary town were only giants live. Found in an old childrens book. Les
Stun-Deal I went to Scarborough, in England (where I live) and my mate was telling me about some wall he saw. On the wall was written as graffiti, "Stun-Deal". Next to that was "Tony Wall". So he told me he could imagine this white Welsh rapper calls himself 'Stun-Deal', and who's manager was Tony Wall. They both met up in Scarborough, had a few geographical albums out in the 80's and are now planning a return concert in York City's castle walls... as I said, it wasn't ME who saw and said all this! I'm just repeating what my mate said! And anyway, after hearing this stupid thing so much I could imagine... STUN-DEAL! Auto2112mbe
Stunguns Read it backwards, prett kewl huh? But this would sound like a Bloodhound Gang-like band. Their first single would be "Your Schwartz is Longer than Myne". S.T.G.
stuNgunS When it's backwards it reads SNUGNUTS... Here's one of their singles "Don't **** with My Stunguns" S.T.G.
Stunk and Droned I was high and i was trying to say, "Hey Alex, let's get drunk and stoned tomarrow", but I said stunk and droned instead. Patrick A.
Stupid And Liking It I think that every teen can relate to not being smart and not giving a s***! KIDD

Stupid French FROG! My friend told me that this is a line that Ashton Cutcher said in Just Married Mack the Knife
Stupid Like You Our mate thought it up, visit www.stupidlikeyou.gq.nu, both insulting and comical, especially when people ask us what our band is called. "its stupid.....like you..." Ben M
Stupid Nicknames Me and my friends always had stupid nicknames for eachother like foods or animals ect.... so stupid nicknames are popular with my group of friends. kat
Stupids With Flareguns It's a line from Smoke On The Water... G
Stussy It was on my teacher's t-shirt, and we made fun of it because it sounded dirty. karie holst
Stutter on 9 We have a girl in our band from each year level but two from year 9 which stuffed up our original name of countdown. One of the girls said "It doesn't work unless u have a stutter" so hence our new name!  Me
Stutterfly I have had this idea of a really cool band name since i was a kid. My favorite toy was a Spiderman doll. I would play with it all the time. Stutterfly always reminds me of my favorite doll because he could only catch "flys that stuttered" so they were stutter flies. Therefore stutterfly. Matt
Subduction You cant get a better name than this. It is so simple and right to the point (like two lovers with head colds.) PHIL
Subject to Change look, all the people on this site that didn't enter a name have "Subject to Change" listed as their name on the right side. Sounds kinda cool Devin
Subject to Search  Bubs
The Subjects I looked at a notebook, and (of course) it said 'subject'. So I thought it would be pretty cool. Joe joe_richey98@yahoo.com
SubLight I was sitting here, reading the band names, and I wondered why no one had come up with it. Also, I was reading a Sci-Fi novel recently. :) I can imagine this being some band in the future, maybe Matchbox Twenty-ish. I can also imagine their first album: "Warp Factor Ten" Songs like "Beam". :) Actually, I don't know what I was thinking. Vicroc4
Subliminal Messages At least they admit that they have hidden messages in their music ! Most likely it would be for a punk rock band-- maybe EMO or something!  Pigertaws
Submarine Suffusion I was talking with my friends about various things, including the Beatles and Douglas Adams. Someone said "suffusion of yellow" just as someone else said, "yellow submarine". I said, "A suffusion of yellow submarines?" Sounds ska or techno or something. Cessi
The Submissions I got it from this site, actually. eZ
Submissions I was gonna add a name, and as I scrolled down I saw the word 'Submissions'. I added 'Submissions' instead of some other s*** name I was thinking of. Someone named D
Submit Everytime you're on a computer and fill something out, then you hit submit. Maybe we should just "Submit" to the music. Captain Beefheart
Submurgical  It's a nickname for my cat, Smurge.. actually now that I think of it, it sounds like an adjective in a British fantasy novel.. Harry Potter and the Submergical Bellfrazzleton. Cel-Chan
Subnova  for a dance /trance band. we were going to use iit then we converted to rock  biill
Subsideon i found out about this rock called obsidian so i basically came up up with this, i was gonna use it for my band but they thought it sounded like a terroist company. So you can have it taz
Subspeed In 1996 we wanted 'sub' to be in our name. Tried all variations of the name, but ended up as 'Grace Kelly'. Then in October 2000, Seb, the guitar player, remembered one of the names and he just said 'Subspeed'. We all said 'Yeah, that's the one!'. Fred
Substantial Penalty for Early Withdrawal Band practiced in a Savings and Loan Tom
Subterfuge I think its cool by the way itsounds! I got the name by looking in a dictionary for submerse. Then I came across subterfuge, which means to disguise and trick. So after discovering I thought about it being my bans name. Fabian Franco
Subtitles In Korean The end of a joke in an episode of "MASH." G
Suburban Devil's Prayer its cool cuz i came up withit standing out side of a church when i saw a suburban propane truck  chad (chadalac)
Suburban Sellouts you can't really complain if they sellout cuz they really don't care Brian Green
Suburban Steryotype It refers to the brattiest kind of people. We were standing on the corner of a street, and we were watching a bunch of people in our grade socializing in the Starbucks across the street. We were commenting on how gay preppies in the suburbs act, so we named our band after them as a sort of thank you for giving us the opportunities to make fun of them. snowburton
The Subwoofers subwoofers make big noise. huge bass ones. WOOHOO!!!!!! cabby
Subzero Heatwaving Me and a friend were brainstorming about band names, and he suggested Subzero and Heatwave. I just combined the two. SamVK
Subzero Hero Or Sub0hero I was playing pong with my bassist and thinking of names, this came to me and it to me is like a mainstream rock or pop name Jarvi

Sucked in Cahoots It's a funny turn of phrase, something in everyone's experience.  Kim
Sucker Munkie Based on the "See, Hear and Speak No Evil" monkeys. Se7endaze
Sucking On The Toilet Paper Last night I had a dream in which I heard a song playing. It's only lyrics that I remember were "Sucking on the toilet paper" repeated over and over. I got to thinking -- any band that would sing that song might just as well name themselves for it! Nicole Velocin
SuCuBuS My band mates (ol gurlz) and I, decided to make a band. We thought about SuCuBuS, meaning "a lady ghost rapes a live guy". Sound incredible and totally COOL. SuCuBuS is the opposite of inCuBuS!!  YoJi09
Sudden Death I was playing Halo on X-box live and someone kept on sniping me, hence the name Sudden Death. it'll probobly work for emo, punk, and rock bands Linkin Park Fan
Sudden Impact Our band was performing for the first time. At the time we didn't have a name. We just called ourselves Untitled. But we knew we had to get a name quick, seeing as we are the only year 7 going on year 8 students in a band at our school for 16 years. After our performance, our school found us really good and had a standing ovation. Not like a little clap, it was enormous. We even had to do an encore (no joke). When we got back to our lockers we were told we made a huge impact by our friends. Then we all decided on the spot it could have to do with our name. And seeing as no one had heard of us before (it was our first show), it was sudden. So Sudden Impact. Matt
Sudden Silence I was reading names on this page for ideas for names for my own band and some had silent in them and some had sudden in them. So I was mixing name together and this one came up. I think its sounds pretty good just not right for the band I'm making. This name sounds more Death Metal but still. Drummerchick
Suddenly Sodomy Sort of a take-off on the North American sitcom "Suddenly Susan." SMSeaton
