Names -> Cool Band Names -> S, Page 8

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:
Soma It's the name for the drug that everyone takes in the novel "Brave New World" written by Aldous Huxley. It's a mix of cocaine, heroin, etc. Basically, it's a really good pill. Ahmead Bakir
Some Dead Guys This is actually our band name at the time. We thought it would be cool to hear the radio dj say something like, "here's song title by Some Dead Guys." Plus it yields for some cool album names like "Killed to Death" "Pushing Up Daisies" and, this is totally unrelated, "Gyration Station." Fredo
Some Young Guy Its cool because it sounds Korean but its not. I thought of it after hearing a funny joke. Will Schildknecht
Somebody Popular Well.....there's this one pretty sweet song called Vindicated and I didn't really know who sang it. So.....i kinda asked mi dad who sang it annd he said "somebody popular" and i really thought that was the person who sang it. Turns out, Dashboared Confessional sings it and when the song came on the radio, i was like "I know who sings this, they're called Somebody Popular!" My friend looked at me and was like..."No it's Dashboared Confessional, u retard!" and so, i still thought that it was a pretty sweet name and that's kinda y i just typed all of this... Taylor
Someone Else's Cumberbund pondering why girls and guys have to match at prom. obvious couples shouldn't have to share the same color, match someone else's cumberbund! stacy
Something Better My friend's band has no good name. Infact, a crappy name. So I said they should be something better. Which they're not. The Dork Matt
Something For The Weekend coz that's why the band started, as something to do for the weekend. also for the sexual undercurrent. the idea was to give away free condoms at our concerts and get sponsored for it ...but as was realistically expected, this never came to be. Dominik Brotherton
Something Obscene That's what i would name my band... if i had a band and any musical talent, or not! Kerri
Something Offbeat It used to be our band name. Sometimes, when we were practicing, one of us would go off beat. When one person would match someone else, we'd all start to fall offbeat, good for an alternative or punk band XstillzX
Something Original i was thinking of a band name and i though "i need something original" then i realised that it sounded cool james
Something Strange Well, every time someone asks me what the name of my band is, I've always been in a band with a really lame name. So, I usually just say "It's something strange". And they're like "C'mon! Tell me!"... So, I decided to name the next band I'm in "Something Strange" so when they ask me, it'll go down like this: Me: I'm in a band. Person: What's your band named? Me: Something Strange Person: Yeah, but what's the name. Me: SOMETHING STRANGE! Person: Just tell me the frickin' name! Me: It's Something Strange!!!!! Person: Fine, don't tell me.... I don't even care anyway. Thrasher
Something Stupid Like many of the names on this list, this is something stupid, but it would appear as though the band didnt bother to come up with "something stupid" and used it as their name Yes I Am
Something To Do With A Duck Me and some mates were going to a local gig, and one of them wastrying to remember the groups that were playing, one of which was called strange duck, she couldnt remember the name so simply came out with: something to do with a duck and we all loved it... Faelfain
Sometimes Never Have you ever had to do a stupid thing around the house and your mom would always ask you if you finished or not? You would reply I'll do it sometime today but you really meant never so that's where sometime never comes in and it sounds kinda awesome! Music4life
Somus Taf Becaus backwards it spells 'Fat Sumos', and everything is to do with Japanese wrestling these days. ed Davis
Sonagi means rain in korean. could work for a rock band soomin
Songmaker's (silent) cry In one of my favourite and saddest Nightwish songs "Dead Boys Poem" there is a line in which Songmaker's cry can be found. I think it would be a good name for bands with similar but more gentle music as Nightwish. Cynthia Cardui
Songs for Gay Dogs It was an album from the early 1960's (back when "gay" meant "happy"). JeReMy
Sonic Death Monkeys i heard jack black say it in john cusack movie...dont remember the title Realm_of_satan
Sonic Fire My friend and I were trying to come up with a band name. I have an old set of comic books: "Sonic the Hedgehog" and "Fantastic 4" (the one with the Human Torch on the side) So I put the 2 together. Kinda lame, but hey, you never know what people are looking for. Fortified4ever
Sonic Fuse just sounds nice nice if it was a rock band that dabbles in other genres..smiley face! metal daisy
Sonic Horizons Is that not just cool? That's our band's current name. I was reading a physics book and there was a thing called a sonic horizon, kind of like a black hole's 'event horizon', but anyways, I thought it sounded really cool. We take 'Sonic', being sound, and Horizons, being like a limit or the end, and slap um together and get, "The limits and boundaries of sound which we must overcome" The Shocker
Sonic Superslide Taken from a song by The Go Gos. It's a great name for a band. Their music would be catchy, uptempo, melodic, upbeat and fun. They would also do some 80s style pop power ballads. The kind that build to a climax in the middle and then come down at the end and are very melodic and touching. Their power ballads would be quite memorable. Edward
Sonix Boom I came up with this name because I like rockin' video game music like that of the nw sonic games, I rest my case. I think it's a cool name because of all the misspellings in band names. Joshua
Sons Of Eden  Peter
Sons Of Kane Because me and my mates were thinking of a band name. I thought of the wrestler Kane, and then thought that Sons of Kane was a cool idea. chris
Sons of Play This name kind of gives you the feeling: these boys really work hard and don't do it just for the money...after all...it's a family thing. ivorin
Soon, Yet Zen Named after the famous Chinese guy Sun Yat Sen. J.C.
sooner not later we are still young but we wana hit it big soon key word there soon a in sooner not later PEACE IM OUTA HERE  tim k
SOP (scars of past) I was jus thinkin of my past which left scars on my heart and thought these scars are Scars of past!!!! and then suddenly thought "it sounds good as a band name" paras raina
Sophie's Gravitas I read it in a book. it goes something like "She was as intelligent, and beautiful. But none of Sophie's gravitas." Alpha
Sopwith Camel-Toe Yeah- we're talking "wing span" here! Great band from the '60's, now fronted by Alanis Morisette princejellyfish
Sordid Evil I was playing that game 'resident evil', then I just replaced resident with sordid and thought that would be a cool heavy metal band name. 50 cent rocks
The Sore Feasons I was just looking at the Band Spoonerisms page on amiright, and thought this one (a spoonerism of The Four Seasons) would be cool. A feason might be an alternative name for feet. In Deer O' Ghandi
Sorely Mistaken  sounds cool enough deadeye
Sorrowful Songs Of The Weeping Willow While watching weeping willow limbs blowing in the wind, the wind made a whistling a very sad but deep whistle like it was singing a lullaby. Trent
SOS Well, all bands drift apart sometime so SOS means help. So, when their going through this time it's like help. s.s
Soul Nite My friend and I were coming up with band names and she came up with this one, perhaps for Evanescence-like music. The debut album would be called "Life and Death" and half the cover would be live things (butterfly, girl's face) and the other half, dead things (fallen leaves, skull). you
Soul Submission Well me and my friend are both interested with death and its a cool hard rock name. ADHD
Soul Terror It's from a Facebook post to find your "mysterious hooded figure name". My brother's friend (the same one from Sexist Chainsaw Massacre) got the name "Soul Terror" JeReMy
Soul Therapists Instead of The Soul Rapists, which was submitted to Stupid Band Names JeReMy
Soul Through A Straw It was from a cartoon I saw like a year ago. Can't remember anything but that. GlamRockNinjaLord
Souldrop It's the name of a small town somewhere in the Anglian region of England - I spotted it on a road sign and thought it was more suited to a TLC-type group than a town... there're some pretty interesting town/city names out there but none so far that I think are more suited to a band than this one miss bad example
Soulever Soulever means "to lift or peel back" in Spanish. I read it on the label on a pack of tissues encased in plastic wrapping. And the rest was history. Tack
SoulJahs Well, I got the name from P.O.D. It's a word they use a lot and I thought that it would be a cool name for a band. Now my band uses it. They spelling is cool because it catches your eye, and it helps people remember the name. Tyler
Soulless Survivor Sometimes people who survive turn out to be total jerks. RevengeFromMars YouTube
The Souls Of Black Folk taken from W.E.B DuBois' book  U3

The Southern Avenger(s) This name is NOT for YANKEES! In my hometown, we have this awesome radio station and everyday, The Southern Avenger comes and does his controversial commentaries on the radio. He is so awesome and he believes that the turnout of the Civil War was unfair (GO REBELS!).  Ezra

Space. Munkey. Mafia. I was listening to my huge collection of Billy Joel CD's. Suddenly I STARTED paying attention when We Didn't Start The Fire came on.

I thought it would be cool for a Punk/Grunge band because they are allways jumping around like monkeys and you think theyd shoot off into outer-space or something.............. Stoner Steve
Spacecataz It's from Aqua Teen Hunger Force on the Cartoon Network. Wade Shearer
Spack Vandy Because its kinda like Van Halen or Pink Floyd, a weird random name. Ivan Gagatko

Spanish Translations I live in a border City close to Mexico, and it helps to be Mexican of course. People who visit and are not from my city, don't know Spanish and ask me to translate for them. They mainly want to know the bad (obscene) words in Spanish, they sound pretty cool. Raquel
Spank Monkey Is it an act of self abuse, or a whipping boy of the primate world? Either brings disturbing images, which is part of the appeal. It's purposefully vague. Okay, I just like the way it sounded when it lodged in my brain after I misunderstood what an inebriated buddy of mine was saying about a band while they were in full volume. New Austinian
Spank Ur Inner Moppet i just think it sounds kewl...............i heard it on buffy the vampire slayer when cordy and buffy were fighting..........it just kinda stuck in my head.............. *Kenzie*
Spanking Gnu A bad boy band of course . Ask any gnu what used to happen to them when they got out of line and sassed the momma! Thats' no bull! badboybear
Spanking Penguins I don't really know where this came from. It was like when you're eating peanut butter, and a chicken is a victim of a drive-by shooting. It just happens. Ziggy
Spare Change Actually the name of my skate team. But sounds catchy, eh? We just thought it up and drew a picture of a bum with his hands out asking for change. me
Spare Change My dad always puts his 'spare change' on a table so that anyone can pick it up and we were talking about a good band name since me and my friend Colby have started a band. My dad looks over and is like 'Spare Change'. We're not using it but I figured someone else might want to. Casey

Spasms of Lucidity This phrase was used by the "Fight Doctor" Ferdie Pacheco to describe then U.S. Olympic boxer Riddick Bowe's prowess in the ring during the '88 Seoul Olympics. It has stuck with me for years and I think is a GREAT band name. BT

Spastic Plastic It'd be hilarious! And very catchy name. It can stick in your head for days CrazyBandie
