Names -> Cool Band Names -> S, Page 12

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:
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
Sudo Fsck A Linux twist. Just replace the s in Fsck. Ted Stone
Sue Me While me and the other members of my band were trying to come up with a band name we kept wanting to use a copyrighted phrase but we feared we'd get sued for useing it without permission so we came up with Sue Me because that was what we would say to the people who copyrighted the phrases if the told us not to use it. THE END Jessika
Suffering In Silence It's just how I feel... so I just thought it'd be cool Molliepop:)
Sugar Candy I came up with it for a club name that my ex best friend and i had and we had the nicknames sugar and candy so sugar candy just stuck in my head Billie
Sugar Foot It´s Woody the woodpecker´s horse !! that´s my old band´s name, only it was in portuguese P頤e Pano !! that´s Sugar Foot´s name here in Brazil  Heck
Sugar Free Delinquents My friend Angela and I are thinking up names for our band, and we both looooove sugar. So, we thought of making something about how sugar free stuff is bad. And here it is! (This name was not chosen.) Chloe
Sugar Free Pixie Stix Me and my freind wre bored and this is a cool one we came up with. (RPM) [Ed.'s note: Pixie Stix are virtually flavored sugar.] Robert
Sugar Lumps & Honey This was from an old "Peanuts" strip where Lucy got violently ill when Linus told her what he was eating. He also said, "They're good with cinnamon, too!" cartoon cartoon
sugareggs my friend intended to name their band with this. he was doing the groceries when he noticed one of the aisle plates read: "Sugar / Eggs." boxfighter
Suicidal Chicken Well seriously... How cool would a suicidal chicken be?! Can't say I've ever seen that before. Courtney
Suicidal Glee Club It's one of the best names I ever heard! I saw it posted somewhere over ten years ago and it's still not taken! I'd use it but it would go against my band's image. I've been tempted to use it but decided I never will. I think some talented band should use it! Josh
The Suicidal Kings We have an awesome band name because if you know poker, you know that the king of hearts is a dangerous card. Plus, it just sounds cool. Ro
Suicidal Miniature Elephants me and my sister were fooling around and made up this little elephant that was only, like, six inches tall, and blamed all that was wrong in the world on himself. the phrase just sounds cool. kim ji
Suicidal Raindeers  Yes Name
Suicidal Spider Monkey Well, just think about it.. a depressed monkey trying to commit suicide. How cool is that! I just put a couple of word together  Nathan Cartwright
Suicidal Survival my best friend told me that a woman on her street tried to commit suicide,but ended up staying alive.so one day at school she told me and im all like'SO LIKE A SUICIDAL SURVIVAL??'and then she said''THE NAME OF THE BAND!!!WE CAN CALL IT SUICIDAL SURVIVAL''!!! Raquel Trejo
Suicidal Telephones My homies and I were hanging around the pool once and I dropped Khiyal's phone into the water. He got mad, but my reply was "You know how it is with these suicidal telephones nowadays." Maybe you just had to be there.  Jamiey
Suicide Blonde It sounds like it would be a great name for a riot grrl-type band, and it's originally the title of an INXS song. Carla Bisagni
Suicide Crush A mixture of several drinks is called a suicide. So a suicide Crush would mix all the flavors of Crush sodas. Opie M.
The Suicide Division Rather insenstive joke blending the fate of Joy Division with the name of the band. Conjures up images of uniformed government officials handing out razors, cyanides and ropes to teens. Maybe I'm just sick. Christ
Suicide Fuel I thought about a heavy rusty metal gas container that leaked and couldn't stand up by itself, with sharp edges. The gas would leak from the container and if you would stand by it to hold it up the gas would leak by your feet, and when you tried to step away from the container the container would fall over and an edge would strike the floor making a spark and igniting the gas. You would stare as the gas trailed to the container and then exploded, and think i could of died and people would of thought it was suicide. Joe
The Suicide Pop Tart Monkeys I made a pop tart do a suicide jump, and loved monkeys at the time, so i thought I'd put it together. And ka-bang! Here it is. devin melrose
Suicide Ramen Well, we saw this on a web site. It was this thing were you get Ramen noodles and put alot of spices in it to make it hot. And what not so, yeah? We think it is wierd and that not one would have ever thought of it and our guitarist loves Ramen noodles.  joseph
The Suicide Squad It came from an anime. I was reading called Fruits Basket. The name amused me so much I couldn't help but want to submit it onto this site. Sarah <3
Suicide Squirrel Commando Overhead someone complaining about squirrels chewing on his telephone wires and the mission impossible music started playing in my head. PSND
The Suitcase Faces The name pokes fun at superficial phoneys from all walks of life and politics. They talk about you behind your back, but fold up like a cheap $2 suitcase when you come around, then tell you how much you are admired. Chris
Sullen This is my bands name. Me and my bandmates came up with the name Sullen because all of our songs are sad and depressing, plus it's got a kick-ass sound! Gothika
Sullen Void Sounds like an emo band. Also sounds like "null and void". RevengeFromMars YouTube
The Sulligents Sulligent is the name of a town in Alabama. I'd heard of it a long time before looking up the origin of its name. Then I found out it is named for two railroad officials, named Sullivan and Sargeant. It had always sounded to me like some word my mother might have applied to me as a child. Like she might have said, "Why are you in such a sulligent mood? Be pleasant!" D. Melody Dole, MD
Sum eAt When I was younger, my mom would bring me with her to babysit her co-worker/friend's two kids. One of them, the younger one would always say, "Some Eat!" when he was hungry. So I figured, why not a band called "Sum Eatt"? Sounds pretty retro, huh? Lolly-Pop Sided
SUMOPART I was thinkin about the saying "The sum is greater than it's parts" (or something close to that), and just put it together-sum of parts-sumopart. The Sumo imagery is an added bonus. OLLIE
sunApod Well I didn't like it too much, but it was our name for a while. Reason is that we could not decide between Tripod and sunA. Tripod because there are 3 of us and sunA because it spelled backwards is silly. Its a silly word. So we combined the two and got sunApod. The 'A' must be in caps!!! Scott
sunbathing grannycat Our cat is cool and she sunbathes! She deserves respect so there! (She is old, too) dj guinea piggy
Sunburned Zebras This was inspired by stuperspasm, who used the answer to a riddle as inspiration for the band name Baby in a Blinder. "A sunburned zebra" is the answer to "What's black and white and red all over?" It's a dumb riddle, but the answer sounds funny when taken out of context. Da Phoenix
Sunburnt Shoulders it sounds like a hippie band or something Steven
Sundae Bloody Sundae What Mafia types have to deal with when eating at Dairy Queen. Another name inspired by radio shock jocks. ice
Sunday Came Again I'm in a band and...that was our old name until we changed it to Shattered Bliss..and we came up with Sunday Came Again because my g/f broke up with me on a Sunday and then my new g/f broke up with me on another Sunday...and it was like deja voo but with a different girl and it was like SUnday came again n shit u get the idea, right? J Man
A Sunday Drive There was this sign called Sunday Lane and the next street was called Ridge Drive. So I mixed the two together and got that. It's a pretty cool name for some indie band or maybe fast punk. Lukas
Sunday Lunch There was a sign on the wall of a pub my band played saying, "Back by popular demand - sunday lunch" and we thought it was a band! Sounds cool! Rob
Sunday Morning Hangover I was reading names on this page. One was Saturday Morning Jesus; and I was thinking of how I could change it more for a band I want to start, since my band is not a Christian band and I came up with that. If you want you might think it sounds better like Saturday Morning Hang Over or Monday Morning Hang Over or whatever day you want. Drummerchick
The Sunday Punchers I dunno if its cool, but it was a group of people in the Army who would bomb the crap out of people. oooooohhhhh
Sundays By The Pool It's cool just because it sounds so chilled out. I've named a soft rock MD of mine this because you can image yourself drinking a cold beer in the sun by the pool on Sunday. Just think about it..its a cool name for a jazz/soft rocky band. Jon Cook
Sundowners My wrestling tag team name as a child, seems to fit a band name perfectly. Reckless Ron
Sunken Clouds I'm not entirely sure. Sweet sounding name for rock or pop band!  Zoobooshi
Sunset on the Rise I was randomly thinking of a sunset and then it kinda just came to mind.  g dizzle
Supa South!es My mates and I all live in South End. We went to a fancy dress party as Super South End Gals and voila !! Typical Essex gals over in da crib here.  caz

Super Destroyer Fuck Machine I think it's from Metalocalypse. IHaveNoBrain
super glue theory  the wise one
Super Hedgehog Overdrive Experience It`s just... awesome. Willdood
Super K-Gro A brand of plant food sold at K-Mart. Perfect for a rapper with an imposing figure, especially if his first name begins with K. Olvan The Terrible
Super Star Destroyer It's either a band with a cool name, a ship in Star Wars, or the illegal drugs that any of several deceased superstars have taken over the years. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Super Superiors  la baba
Super Ted Is Dead Well he must be, have you seen him recently? I think its a "super" name for a band in fact I wonder what kind of music Super Ted and Spotty man would have come up with. Is this an American site? If so, you might not have had Super Ted when you were kids. Mr. Pete
Superficial Lies I think this would be a cool name because a lot of artists sing songs about lies. Sometimes, lies can also be only skin deep. why?
Superheroes By Night at first it wont make sense to you but then you thinkand your like whoa i get it at night they become super heroes Doggie
Superior Lint me and my friend were talking about the dryer and how slow it goes and we were all,"at leat that superior lint does a great job" and i was like...HEEEY that sounds like a band name!!! Amanda
Superman Skivvies From the Sweater Song by Weezer hate to see you lying there in your Superman skivvies. It also reminds me of that scene in Charlies Angels where Cameron Diaz dances around in Superman underwear, although I hated that movie. mimi
Superman's Been Shot It was a line in a Justice League movie. G
Supermarket Sweeties I was a part time cashier at the local supermarket, and one of the customers who was a regular always called me sweetie! Yasmine
Supernova Jackson's Dream People At the University of Illinois, I spent three years in a sketch comedy group named Potted Meat. In one of our writing sessions, the name 'Supernova Jackson' came up. after a year and six shows, it became the sketch 'The First Installment of Supernova Jackson's Dream People". Mr. Jackson was a flamboyant louge singer who narrated the sketch by song. No really, it was funny. Potted Meat would probably be a good name too, come to think of it. Also Birdcheese. Geoff R
Supershine It represents nothing I guess, I was looking out the window and it was hot as hell hand the sun was blairing righ in my face and my buddy says "dude, its like super hot outside" ..... so I kinda thought with the shiny and super mixed togeter it would be cool.... supershine. cockeye
Supersonic Spacemonkeys Not Reallly sure. Me and my friend were sitting in class, our teacher asked us for the name of our "team" for this vocab thing, and i just kinda exclaimed "the.....uh......SUPERSONIC SPACEMONKEYS!" and yeah. it was funny. JT DeBolt
SuperStupid It's a new super hero. He's not just stupid, he's super stupid. A buddy of mine (cK) came up with it...  b00g
Supesgojira I'm a big Godzilla nut, and this is SpaceGodzilla's Japanese name. Alex D.
The Support Band I was at a show and the first band came on and we yelled out 'WHATS YOUR BAND CALLED?' and he's like "I dunno! We're just the support band!" Then I thought, wow, wouldn't it be cool if that was what they were called... it turned out to be some other wierd name. Me and my friends have a band and didn't have a name so now we are "The Support Band". It would be especially cool if we ever headline a show... Please don't take our name. Lani
Supporting Players Perhaps a band of back-up singers. They wouldn't need very many lyrics, just some doo-wops and la-las William Actor
Sure Fire This name is good for a band that always has a good song and is crazy at shows. Ryan C.
The Surefire Way I was in a guy situation, and I was just thinking to myself, "a surefire way into a girl's heart is to cheer her up when another guy makes her sad." Then I went hey... The Surefire Way could be an amazing band name!! Like you always get it right, plus surefire is a pretty cool rock-ish word. Alex
