Names -> Cool Band Names -> S, Page 4

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:
Shades of Green I was thinking of that song that goes, "I see shades of blue, white flowers too, and I think to myself what a wonderful life". Not my kind of music, but Shades of Green sounds like a pretty cool Punk name, I guess. Thorne Bush
Shadow Dragons Well, you see, dragons are immortal. So I thought that maybe the band using this name would be "immortal". And when I saw the name in "Dragonlance", it was perfect. Khellendros
The Shadow Dudes It comes from Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal. A character in the game calls himself "Shadow Dude" in one part of the game. JeReMy
Shadow of Certainty The opposite of "shadow of doubt". Sounds like a solar eclipse or something? RevengeFromMars YouTube
Shadow of Fate My friends and I were sitting around drunk recording ourselves and blurted out Shadow of Fate. While listening to the recording I said that Shadow of Fate would make a good band name. Bass Playa
Shadow Rider A white guy that does black chicks, plain and simple. Also reminds me of those hooded horsemen from 'Lord of the Rings'. Zak Attak
Shadow Squad It's a name given to a group of elite soldiers, whose primary function in the U. S ARMY are RECON missions. DJ Erratic
Shadow Thief Pretty cool if u ask me. I came up with it when I sneaked up behind my friend and scared the crap out of her. She then said, "Jesus! You tip toe so quetly You could have stolen my Shadow!" It kinda stuck with me after that. Mc_Kourpo
Shadows In Red we had to come up with a group name in one of our classes and i saw this hella cool picture of these guys' shadows. later on i had gone to my forensics science class and we were starting our murder investigator section and it clicked! shadows in red! azrael
Shadows in the Night (SIN) i think its kool cuz it doesnt make too much sense. we made it cuz we wanted an abbreviation and it was SID (shadows in the dark) then we thought SIN was better so i thought of words that start with n like night and now thats wut we're called. yup we're real and we're from essex,ontario,canada BKnight
Shag Rock I was looking at this map of the Americas and I noticed this island off the coast of Argentina that is U.K. territory called Shag Rock and I thought, "That'd be a tight name for a rock band!!!" Joey Ramone
Shag The Vicar It's a common yet crude idiom curse from down about the lowlands. But it surely rings good for a band's name.  Gary Gray
The Shaguettes Very Austin Powers! Dominic
Shake Well My friends and I were thinking of a cool name. Since I told them that I saw a commercial which consists of a make-up band which was called as, "Tear Here", then we decided to use Shake Well!! yahoo
Shake Well Read the chocolate milk panel. beebop
Shake Your Spear At Shakespeare I was on the funny lyrics page. I went to System of a Down. This was the first one I saw. Death metal band. phamilto
Shaken Not Stirred Stylish, Bondish, for a band that might sound like Roxy Music or something. Jehannes
Shaker Revival The Shakers were a religious group that could be compared to the Amish or the Mennonites. Except, they weren't allowed to have sex, even if they were married. Because of this, they pretty much died off in the early 1900's. They were known for two things: being kick a** carpenters, and performing bizzare "shaking rituals" to music (hence how they got their name). By this point, Shaker Revival should be pretty self explanitory. Shake to music, revival as in the rebirth of the religion, or revival as in the celebration sermons that are thrown. Everything adds up to an awesome band name. It's already taken though... AphexTriplet
Shakespearian Cattle Prod Well, if there can be a "Culture Club", why can't there be a "Shakespearian Cattle Prod" ?? Johnny D
Shakesphere In Hell cuz its shakespeare plays and sonets put 2 deathe metal music..... they are from new orleans shelly
Shallow Consolment Sitting around thinking of band names. Heard console then heard shallow. Then BAM!  Swarm
Shallow Disaster i dont know how i thought of it, i was trying to think of cool names for my band and then i thought of this. i think it just sounds cool anyway bfmvicky
Shameless Self Promoters Come on, it's addicting. Yeah, say it again. Yeah. Yiggidy
Shan't! The British say funny things. phamilto
Shanghai Roundeye it rhymes, but its contradictory...asian, but "roundeye" not asian. Mike Lydic
Shaniqa Don't Suffer If you KNEW Shaniqa...  Drake Cahill
Shank and the Flash Fried Cattle We need a pro-beef band. Dark One
shank remedy i just thought of it weasel
The Shape A cool jam band name, what more can I say? It just came into my mind. Juice
The Shape Sisters We were in a pub and my mum tried to say 'Shapeshifters' (they are a pop group) but said 'Shapesisters' by mistake. sonikal
Sharkspree On fark.com, there was an article, and they said "don't know who Sharkspree is" meaning "they don't know who Shakespeare is". I thought that would be hilarious. Lucy
Sharkwave This is cool because I wanted a band name thatincluded a shark, a long story, and my mate thought of Shockwave so after thoinking hard i fused them to come u with sharkwave. Jay Mike
Sharon Needles I thing it would be a cool rock band name. I could make some hard rock sound with a band with this name. Tom Reynolds
Shart Week My brother and I came up with a bunch of nicknames for each other involving the word "shart", a term for a wet fart, including this. This is also a misspelling of "Shark Week" I found on Lamebook, a website that compiles the worst and funniest of Facebook. JeReMy
Shartina Navratilova My brother and I came up with a bunch of nicknames for each other involving the word "shart", a term for a wet fart, including this. JeReMy
Sharty McFly My brother and I came up with a bunch of nicknames for each other involving the word "shart", a term for a wet fart, including this. JeReMy
Shatner's Bassoon It was a mythical part of the body mentioned in an equally mythical anti-drug campaign on 'Brass Eye'. I always thought it would be a great name for a progressive rock band, along the lines of Spock's Beard or Darwin's Radio. pickle
Shatter Proof I think it's cool because it is like shatter proof glass. It's got a heavy metal sound to it. Kevin
Shattered I found the word out when I was playing hockey and broke my window. I never heard of a band with this title. And I thought that the word 'shattered' also relies on...maybe somebody's feelings or attitude. shane
Shattered Bliss Just think it sounds cool Chris
Shattered Glass Rose Saw Cowboy Bebop's fifth session "Ballad of Fallen Angels", and came up with the name. Darius Cloud
Shattered Iris This is actually the name of the group of amateur artists that practice in my garage. I am the one that came up with this name, and, being the bassist, I happen to like it, even though it's rather bland, IMHO. It sounds painful, doesn't it? It doesn't exactly match the genre we play, as it would sound better for a band that plays a little heavier music (perhaps something like Fuel?). Anyway, I know this is supposed to be for made-up names only, but I think it's cool. Besides, other people have done this sort of thing! :) Vicroc4
Shatterglass The name sounds awesome, and it is the name of a book by Tamora Pierce. My friends and I are starting a band and I suggested Shatterglass. We still don't have a name, but we think we might use it. Skate4Life
Shaved Chizzle Someone IMed me one time and their screenname was "Shaved Chizzle" and i thought it was funny yet immature. Kelsey
The Shawl Family I was at a geneology class, and the teacher mentioned she was an ancestor of family that didn't exist anymore, called the Shaul family. Naturally, I thought she said "Shawl", which is a poncho/sweater worn by elderly women. band name
Shawties with 40's Sounds like a female rap group. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Shazzam I just started saying it one day... like a magical person or something. I tried to make a scary man disappear and it didnt work, so maybe band name is its destiny. Sarah
She Got Shot I thought of a girl getting shot. Chazm
She Likes Cloth There's this online cartoon called Teen Girl Squad, and it's supposed to be a spoof of a bunch of girls hanging out and "looking so good!" and in one of the episodes, one of the characters goes up to some guys who are saying, "Band name. Band name." so she says to them, "Uh, hi. I like music. And, um, cloth." So I thought, that would be a good band name! She Likes Cloth! Mitch
She Made Us Run! Well, my friend was talking about how he hated cross country practice. I asked him why, and he said, "She makes us RUN!" Thus, that became our name. Meg
Shecky's Tool Room The guy who is in charge of the tool room where I work is nicknamed "Shecky." unstable bob
ShellShocked Well, i was watching Airplane and noticed the awesoely cool name shellshock at the hospital flashback. Shellshock is when people freak out after being in the war. jarad
Shennanigans I got the name from grade 7. This guy started calling me Shennaigans. Shennanigans means funny and silly and that represents me and my band members. Sheena
The Sherwood Gypsies I actually once thought this was a real group. That's from hearing a radio DJ announce what I thought was "That was Sherwood Gypsies' 'Tramps And Thieves'." What he must have really been saying was "That was Cher with ' Gypsies Tramps And Thieves'." Angelica Drake
Shift I just was just staring at the key board and thought it would be different.  jess
Shifted During Flight As in, "Objects may have shifted during flight". It's for a band who's a little off. Adam
The Shifty McNuggets Trademarks be damned I just like this word combination. Alternate Name: Ronald McDonald and the Shifty McNuggets Nerrticus
Shine Or Shade  It's cool cause of the negative and positive in one title. I heard it in a poem, and thought that would be cool band name with mixed members from the dark side and the positive side.  nick
Shinola As in "you don't know S*** from Shinola!"  mike lydic
Shiny Cows I was just thinking about things that were shiny, and I was also eating a hamburger, then WHAM! Shiny Cows popped in my head. Made me laugh SO hard. Hehehe, anyways, who has EVER seen a shiny cow, huh? Really, its like, " Here's some windex for your Mooer." Hehehehe. That's all. Elizabeth
Shiny Eyelashes I though of this one when I looked at this one chick who had so much mascara and eyeshadow on that it looked like her eyelashes were shiny. not to mention she looked like she had gotten run over by a truck. but that's not the point. it's a cool chick/metal group name punkstress
The Shiny Mustards We were talking about the luster of minerals in science and we had to identify the luster of sulfur; we said 'shiny, mustard'  meggo
The Shiny Streak This name is like an oxymoron. Streaks are not shiny, so it sound cool. onopizzileizzle
Ship High In Transit "Ever wonder where the word "sh*t" comes from? Well, here it is. Certain types of manure used to be transported (as everything was back in the 1800's) by ship. Well, in dry form it weighs a lot less, but once water (at sea) hits it, it not only became heavier, but the process of fermentation begins again, with the byproduct being methane gas - and as the stuff was stored below deck in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen. Methane began to build up below deck and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern. BOOOOM! Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was discovered what was happening. After that the bundles of manure where always stamped with the term "S.H.I.T." on them which meant to the sailors to "Ship High In Transit". In other words, high enough off the lower deck so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane." I don't know how true this is, but nevertheless it would still make a cool name for a band IMO.  Mike
Shiroi Kaze This is the name of a band in my comic. I was watching Gravitation and in the opening theme for the show they say shiroi kaze, which means white wind. I think names in Japanese are kewl Tenshi
Shirt Bricks A Your Grammar Sucks version of the phrase "sh*t bricks" JeReMy
Shirt, Shoes, & Service If anyone wnts to boo this band with style, they can go "No shirt, no shoes, no service!" Tejayes
Shlappy First thing that came to mind, Enjoy? Tonie
Shmeckaldorff I think this name just spells like rainbow sherbet ice cream. shane
Shmingle Pingle It's cool because if you're in a joke band. My little bro came up with shmingle and pingle rhymes so I thought it would be cool. It doesn't mean anything. Dark lord dragon slayer
Shmorvenhoffen I just came up with it. I was thinking of a password for something online and it couldn't be based on a word in the dictionary. So I thought, "Why not 'Shmorvenhoffen'?" Cecilia
Shnoobs I don't know why i like this. It's a sound effect that i use a lot. Sounds better if you say it as if you're falling off a cliff. Charlie's Angel
Shock and Awe  The code name for the intimidation tactics the USA employs against terrorists in Afghanistan and Iraq. After it was first used in the media, it has achieved widespread recognition. Since a lot of bands enjoy naming themselves after famous and controversial things, I'd say "Shock and Awe" is right up their alley. CC
Shock Johnson I was in this band years ago. No one using the name now. I think it was pretty cool. Has nothing to do with electricity or male body parts. Stevie M
Shock Mod It was a mod for a weapon on a video game I played. asyanica
Shock Therapy One of the odder names left untaken by Rockers everywhere. Someone please use this. G
SHOCK'd It means Seriously Hooked On Christ the King. The 'd has no meaning, we just thought it sounded better than SHOCK. Great for a Christian Rock band. Christian Rocker
Shoe Event Horizon It's something mentioned in the Hitchhiker's Trilogy (Restuarant, I think, along with the radio serial), and it just plain sounds cool. Jill
shoe lace its cool cos i was making fun of my little cuz that she likes this pop band (dont know wat its called)and i was trying to guess the name of them.this name is good for a metal band or a satanic thingymajiger. deryck whibley
Shogun Wedding The Japanese equivalent of "shotgun wedding"? RevengeFromMars YouTube
Shoot, The Ladder A bit of fun off the old "Chutes and Ladders" kids' board game. When someone walks under a ladder and bad luck happens, he/she would exclaim, "Shoot, the ladder." J.C.
ShoreLines End  John Johns
Short Bus All Stars Our former prison punk band Putt
Short Bus Bandits i saw this guy get on the short bus and he had a paper bag on his head and i said dude he's a SHORT BUS BANDIT and it went down hill from there kid punk
The Short Bus Riders I came up with this name when I saw the movie 'Dumb and Dumberer'. stud
Short Bus Riders Its not original. It was the name of a band it my really small town. It was a group of high schoolers fooling around. The name just stuck in my head. Me
Short Happy Life Name of my old band. Great name. Simple: Life is short, make it happy, come to our show!  Jumpin Jim
The Short Piers From the saying, "Take a long walk off a short pier", which was said when someone annoyed you long enough. Blackie Boston
Short Story Made Long I thought of it because they say long story short, but if you jumbled it around you would a pretty cool band name I think. It just slots into a band names section, you know? Vergil
Short Term Memory Foam I don't know how I thought of it but I though of it out of the blue at Jesus camp. Like tempurpedic memory foam but short term memory Chase Ross
Shorted Input sounded cool to me, like whenever your amp gets a short.... yeah... well whatever eXecutioner

Shred Razor Yeah, Now that is a hardcore Metal Band. Bye-Bye Slipknot here comes Shred Razor! Waylander
Shredded Lemming Sorta just rolls off the tongue. A friend of mine was thinking of starting a Motorhead cover band and wanted to call them Shredded Lemmy, after lead singer and bassist Lemmy Kilmester. I misheard and thought he was talking about the cute little mindless characters in my favourite computer game. A.J.
Shrimpton The surname of one of Spinal Tap's many deceased drummers. GlamRockNinjaLord
Shriveled Scrotum Well my friend says alot of random comments all the time, he sticks with a few for a month then seems to create more. Shriveled Scrotum seems to be one that stayed for a while. We usualy just say yeah thats our band name as a joke. Something
Shroud Of Charlemagne I dunno, me and my best friend nabbed this from an episode of "Psych" one night; we just thought it sounded badass. Sweet name for a Death Metal band... Corey...
