Names -> Cool Band Names -> S, 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.

Submitted by:
Shurikenians I love shurikens or ninja stars, so I thought the name would be cool if I add some more letters. Pikachu
Shut Up because when your band performs, you want everyone to shut up and listen unless they have something important to say. brittany
Shut Up Mitch Swallow! It could be a taunt. It could be a statement. It could referring to the swallows that come to San Juan Capistrano. The band members could YELL it at the crowd to incite them. The name is perfect! Joel Melton
Shut Up, Stupid! I used to play sports in my backyard and my dad used to scream out of the sliding glass door "Shut Up, Stupid". It carried over into my drum playing days in marching band rehearsing in my backyard. TonyDaProducuh
Shutterspeed  Dave :]
Si-fin My band were trying 2 fink of a name and sum1 wrote 5-fin on my guitar so we used dat then the music teacher sed it wrong and it sounded better so yea Sam
The Sick Fucks Truth in advertising for metal groups like Cannibal Corpse? IHaveNoBrain
Sick Men Of Asia From the Bruce Lee movie "The Chinese Connection" patiperro
siCK*trust Um, this one came from me and my friend. A person we don't like said that our trust was so firm it was sickening. My best friend's name starts with C, and the person we don't like - his name starts with K, so... the star represents me. It's up for grabs, but please do give me money if you get big with this name ^^ therealdeepblue
Sick, Sick, Sick Because the Queens of the Stone Age song of the same name is stuck in my head. helloholmes
Sickly Twizted It is cool because of the way I found the name. I was watching "Saw 2" and seen the logo for Twisted Pictures. I thought of something to go with it; and then it popped up. Bill Rowe
Siddartha THERE IS THIS BOOK CALLED SIDDARTHA AND IT IS A F***ING COOL BOOK. AFTER READING IT U WILL S*** YOURSELF AND SAY OMFG SIDDARTHA WOULD BE A H*** TIGHT DEATH METAL BAND NAME. CASHMONEYDRUICE@AOL.COM
Side Flip Boob Job In the video game Ratchet & Clank, you can do sideways flips in front of a woman whose boobs inflate with each flip. JeReMy
Side-A well you can say it as in "cider" or it can be in terms of how tapes have like 'side A and sideB'.....just a weird thought of mine... jaY
The Sideburns I used to have amazing sideburns. My friends told me to name my band The Sideburns. Jesus
Sideways Eight In math, the sideways eight is the sign for infinity.  meggo
The Sigh i found it cool...:) Cj Dude
Sigh Whickerin' Here's still another possible band name I thought up from my father's explanation way back when as to something my cousin was apparently trying to say. Back in the days when televisions had vertical and horizontal holds, the picture could go distorted sideways obliquely form the horizontal hold being not well adjusted. When that condition happened I would hear my younger cousin, before he could talk plain, say that the TV was "sky goblin" or perhaps "sky gobblin'". I wondered where such an expression came from. My father told me back then that my cousin was probably trying to say "sigoglin" or "sigodlin", the first syllable sounding like "sigh" in either case, two among of several variants on a colloquial expression for anything skewed from a normally expected right angle or rectangular shape. He mentioned other colloquialisms for the same meaning, including "antigoglin", "antigodlin", and "siwhickerin", the first syllable again sounding like "sigh" in the last example. I think the best band name idea from the last example comes from spelling it "Sigh Whickerin' " D. Melody Dole, MD
Sign Of The Zodiac Each band member could have a stage name of their zodiac sign. Terard Taylor
Signature Over Printed Name My submission of this band name is also about another reply slip. I can't remember when and where, but the only thing I can remember is that I wrote my signature without Printed Name under it. So I was scolded by someone and he/she laughed at me. But, its something cool, the reply slip where my signature is in, has no NAME on the "Signature Over Printed Name". It's only "Signature Over Printed". I love Anna Lissa.By Dewitt
Signs, Signals, and Markings I was in Drivers' Ed., and our teacher named off a chapter that was called "Signs, Signals, and Markings". So I thought it would be a cool band name. Josh Gore
Sihuana Paranica it sounds like the scientific name of an halucinogen, but it really means "come here" in nahuatl, a mexican dialect. doesn't it sound great?!? G. vdm C
Silence Think it's realy cool cuz you wouldn't expect a punk rock band to stay silent, would you???? Bubbles
Silence Henders In Thought If you spell the initials of the title, it makes you giggle slightly. nevergonnaknow
Silence Is Forbidden I was kidding round with my friend on band names and when I came with this one, it kinda stuck out. It's dark and rock-like but it also could mean you are loud. Jake
A Silent Affair me and some friends were talking about band names in the car and passed a store called A Formal Affair. We talked about it and changed Formal to Silent. Zach
Silent But Deadly No, I'm not talking about the black mambo snake, it is a grade-school category for farts. patiperro
Silent But Deadly We all know what that means. When people fart, and you can't hear it, or it can mean a stealth ninja does a sleeper on you, which is silent but deadly. Haizie
The Silent Dawn It just sounds cool...like in the very first of the morning when only the birds are out. You can just imagine it. Jacobb Casselman
Silent Death i was watching a war movie and a guy was killed in perfect silence. i thought it sounded like a cool band name. me and my friends might use it though. jorden watkins
Silent E From looking at my mom's maiden name. It has a silent e in it(like most German surnames that have "ie" in it, you don't pronounce the E) Deedee
Silent Echo this is just cool...cus i lerned this knew word in 5th grade, echo and it meant a little sound, and silent means no sound...haha... Matt Lu
Silent Hotel Massacre It sounds like a screamo band, but I just randomly thought it up one day and I like it. Lerod
The Silent Letters From looking at silent letters in words Deedee
Silent Scream It's an oxymoron. I just think it sounds cool. [Ed. note: It was the name of an awful 1980 horror film, too.] Special K

Silent Spring I got it from a quote from Red Alert 2. Phil Yacoe

The Silent Treatment I was just thinking about how girls use the silent treatment on guys to get what they want. Eric

Silly String Ensemble I thought of this jokingly, as if music could be made with "silly string". Tess O. Gosset
Silver Blade Dont use this its just for ideas with the words of silver or blade my brother thought of it (bass player) and friend (guitarist) agreed this already my band SiLveRBlade
Silver Bullet Cause it kills vampires. And everyone knows theres too much vampire shit around. (Editor:Would Bob Seger be the lead singer?) Yero
SiLveR BulLeT production Well, first it has to feel good when you here it, just like the band ( DEEP DISH ), everybody would love to eat in a deep dish, it so natural. well, what the word (SiLveR BulLeT) carries is the beautiful color, which is silver and the helpfull meaning which can save your life one day if you are locked with a vampire in the same room. And the name really goes with the type of the music we play which is electronic. Psychic sasi
Silver Cycle I came up with it from my two most inspiring bands: Nickelback and Staind. (The Nickelback album "Silver Side Up" and the Staind album "Break the Cycle". I wanted it to be the name of my band, but the other guys didn't like it that much.  john
Silver Darkness A friend and I stayed up all night once; and the moonlight was illuminating the yard. My friend said, "Lets make a band called Silver Darkness." Andrew Shelton

Silver Naked Ladies Paul Westerberg song, name of the club in Things To Do In Denver.... (and those things on turcker's mudflaps). Hoser
Silver Rhythm I suggested this name when we were trying to create a band name. They just rejected it. But I think it's better than the name they chosed, "Overpass." RJ
Silver Rupees Silver Rupees are worth a lot in the Zelda franchise. They are the currency of the kingdom. Plus, they're shiny and silver and really neat! Orange blocks and Purple socks
Silver Sleeve This was actually a nickname one of our band members dad was called in high school. He used to have really bad allergies, and would wipe his runny nose on the sleeve of his shirt. He did this constantly. Well you know the shiney, silver like trail that is left behind after a good swipe. So they called him "the silver sleever." We just knocked off the "er" part and figured...hey..."Silver Sleeve." Meandpals
The Silver Techno Dragons I just thought that the name would be cool since it sounds like they're half-dragon/half-robot and it was all i could come up with. Jack
Silver Where1874 Me and my sister came up with this while doing the dishes, and the number just sounded cool Cycadelic
Silversrceen I was helping my mother paint her bathroom. I asked what the color of the paint was; and she told me it was called Silverscreen. The first thing from my mind after she said it was, "Wow, if I ever had a band that's what I'd name it!" I just thought it sounded really wicked. Of course I myself have no musical ability what so ever but I still thought about it. It probably wouldn't work for a hard core/metal band but it might work for an indie/ rock band or something of that nature. Alex
Similar To Donut An all-female (or at least female-fronted) rock group from Japan. They'd write original songs and cover 80's classics like the Waitresses' "I Know What Boys Like." Olvan The Terrible
The Simmies I think it is cool because it is an attracting name!!!! Please put it on the web. [Ed.'s note: I'll pass it through, Chelsea. But only if the creators of "The Sims" video game don't sue us. :D ] Chelsea Vinyard
Simon Bar Sinister This would be a great name for a metal band. It also was Underdog's arch enemy. Mark C.
Simple Chivalry Its not as easy as it sounds to be a gentleman Nich
Simple Day My friend and I though of this name because we got into an argument about whether Green Day was better or Simple Plan. I was obsessed with Green Day and I wanted to name my band after that; but she wanted our band named after Simple Plan ,since she was obsessed with Simple Plan so we made up Simple Day. Now everybody's happy. Rosa Yo!
Simple Desire We aim to please all our groupies and rock hard fans. In fact, it is not our aim more of a desire. And because we are so awesome at playing, it is simple to do so. Therefore, Simple Desire.  Josh and Beff
The Simpletons Right now we only have an acoustic, a lead, and a tambourine player...its really for very simple bands hence the name GeorgieBaby333
Simulacra I had to do a research paper on Jean Baudrillard for a class, and one of his theories has to do with a sort of simulation called simulacra. I loved the idea and name! alchemist

Sin Ropa This came from a guy I used to work with. This is cool because it means "without clothes" in Spanish. So basically your band is named "Nude" but maybe a lot of people wouldn't know it. Another reason it is cool is that it flows well off the tongue (mellifluous for those really smart people out there). I can't come up with more reasons why it is cool at this point. I think it deserves to be on the site.  steven kent
Sin Theta y is it cool? i dont know just is u suppose! means nothing apart form the genuine meaning of the words in mathmatical terminology! jsut seems to work! Sin pronounced Sign Soul
The Sinatra Hats What I call the type of hat that Frank Sinatra and Elvis Costello wore. G

Sinecure its a word in the dictionary the means- a well paid job the requires little work  Batson
Sinfonia  'I was bored in music class' = name! Pretty straight forward. However, it is a type of symphonic composition. Preferably for a girl band. bob
Sinful Service Cheerful service is preached in the scouts, but I figured that that was too goody-goody. Plus this sounds dirty. sounds cool. Da Boyscout

Sinner Take All Similar to "winner take all" but reflects reality a bit more accurately. RevengeFromMars YouTube
