Names -> Cool Band Names -> S, Page 7

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.

Small World- Big Monkey I was thinking of band names for my own band. As you can see, it's a common statement mixed with a less common one and I think the formula works quite well. Actually come to think of it, Big Monkey works quite well too...think I'll use that. Cam
Small, Hard, Rocks Um initially it was by lateral thinking. Then I passed some kidney stones. Man, they may be small, but they hit hard! Jozo

Smeg And The Heads a tribute to red dwarf. Lister´s and Rimmer´s attempts to use the word ´smeg´ and making it sound like a real swear word is brilliant. Lister: "what the smeggin´ smeg´s he smeggin´done? he smeggin´ killed me..." Chris the sheep
Smeghammer From the coolest line from Red Dwarf. Kryten : "I'll just go get the smeghammer and loosen Mr Lister's underpants." Actually, "Loosen Mr Lister's Underpants" would be a good one too. Doe Bathory

Smiling Politely Smiling Politely is my band's name (Chrissy Derbyshire on lead vocals, 'B.B.' Morgan on bass guitar, Marina Evans on lead guitar, Sean something on drums) and its cool because when Billy Corgan said 'Billy Corgan, Smashing Pumpkins', Homer Simpson said 'Homer Simpson, smiling politely'! Chrissy

Smothered Infant Well after listening to Dying Fetus, Cannibal Corpse, and various other death metal bands I decided that I had to come up with an outrageously disturbing name for my band in order to become somewhat popular. Smothered Infants is the kind of name that sticks with you... So that is what we might call our selves Bill
Smurfberry Crunch I was reading a list of cereals, apparently this used to be a cereal. My brain also thought it would be a cool band name, especially if the members really liked cereal. Elle
Snail Sans Shell It was a crossword puzzle clue. The answer was "slug"! Diane Stolfi
Snails On Steroids Me and my mates were sitting down thinking of band names and one of my mates thought of steroids, and I saw a snail...so...Snails + Steroids = Snails on Steroids. Jon Cartwright, Chris Raynes.
Snake and Cross My friends are all huge Fullmetal Alchemist fans, but we could never remember the name for the Flamel Snake symbol. We would call it the "Snake and Cross". After a while, I though "There's some weird hard rock band names, why not ours be called Snake and Cross?" It stuck. Trevor

Snips Me and my friend were talking about what girls are made of (sugar, spice, and everything nice) and I said, "What are boys made of?" And she said, "Snips, snails, and puppy dog tails." Then I asked, "What are snips?" She started making a motion that a guy makes when he's lonely and has a Playboy. We started laughing and I thought that Snips would also be a cool band name. dead
Snoogans Well, this was an idea for a name. We sit in math class and think of made up words and we came up with "Snoogans". By the way, it didn't fly. Collin
Snooper I was once intrigued by a specific word that I had created over a conversation with my dearest friend, Walter Michaels Henry 2nd. He had informed me that he had exposed my drawer to his eyes. In conclusion, I held him accountable as a "Snooper". Therefore I conjecture that "Snoopers" would be an apporopriate "BAND NAME". I believe it will do fantasticly well with populartiy, and will gain power to minipulate many people to listen to "the band" Thank you for reading this and have a wonderfull band! ~ Delton Abreham McFee, The 3rd ~ Delton Abreham McFee, The 3rd
