Names -> Cool Band Names -> S, Page 9

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:
Special Ed and the Ritalin Rangers It's just funny in a politically incorrect twisted way. You just know somebody'd ask: Which one's Ed? Troubadog
Special Guest Since every band's opening act is referred to as their special guest, why not make them announce special guest Special Guest! (See my other entry, With.) Frigmous
Special Guest Stars This would look cool on a marquee. People would be curious to see who the guest stars are; only when they've paid and come inside would they realize that Special Guest Stars is the name of the band. Sister Havana
Special Guests Forever destined to be a support band.... but if we ever DID manage to headline anywhere, imagine how priceless those gig tickets would be!!!!! [Special Guests + Special Guests?!] Shinkansen
Special Guests When you look at your concert ticket, theres this band 'Special Guests' that seem to support everyone but never show up. Who are they!? US! Danny McNeill
Spectacle Rock Early Nintendo games are a veritable fountain of great names for rock groups, especially "The Legend of Zelda." Consider the following: "Lost Hills," "The Moblins," "Eyes of Gohma," "Grumble Grumble," "Triforce," and "Dodongo Dislikes Smoke." Olvan The Terrible

Spectrum Prime It comes from 'Donnie Darko'. It is from the director's cut version. Holden
spedXing u kno how the sign say ped Xing foor pedestrian crossing...well a sped is special ed. so....spedXing becky
Speed Limit 25 its cool! my friends mom was driving us to school and she was going really slow. my friend then said " The speed limit is NOT 25!!!!!!" it clicked instantly. drumma_25
Speed Limit 55 I passed the sign driving in my car and thought it would be good for a rock band. Although, if the band was really hard-core, it would be something like Speed Limit 95. Kristen
Speed McQueen Homage to the awesome Steve McQueen... but faster! me
Speedlite It's a flash camera attachment from Canon. It sounded pretty cool :] Womzee
Sperm Producing Parasites It's from Mental Floss (the YouTube channel, not the actual magazine). Host John Green says that "Sperm Producing Parasites" would be a great band name when the phrase comes up in an episode called "26 Weird Animal Mating Habits" JeReMy
Sphere Hey a 1 word band name that has little meaning, maybe good for a REM type band? Alien7
Sphere of Effluence The opposite of "sphere of influence". Also what a dung beetle pushes around. Could be a good name for a thrash metal or punk band? RevengeFromMars YouTube
Sphinctal Release While 'sphinctal' isn't a real word, it sounds like it means 'related to the sphincter'. Add in 'release' and you've got yourself a technical name for all that escapes the anus, aka a nice ironic name for a good band which isn't s***. Bob
Sphincter Boy It's from Wayne's World. I think that's how you spell it. stew
Sphinxter Combine Ancient History with Biology! Bold Yelper
Spiced Ham I think it's cool if your band is called "Spiced Ham". Spiced Ham has a flavor of rock. I think. Adi
Spicy Caca In A Maraca It came to me during one of my personal stream of consciousness writing exercises. I think it works because "caca" and "maraca" are rhyming Spanish words.  Renard
Spicy Chicken I was walking through Best Buy and I saw a CD that had a chicken on the front and the band was called "The Spices". So I decided on "Spicy Chicken". I don't know why I thought of it. It just sounds cool. 9pm News Producer
Spiders And Insides I was watching the video to "I Miss You" by Blink 182. When it got to (the part where they sing "spiders and insides"), I came up with it! I think it's kinda funny as well. Roz
Spiked Moles My friend was telling me that she had to kill the moles in her yard with spikes and then I said "Spiked Moles!" and then we decided that it would be a good band name.  olivia
Spikenard According to John's Gospel, this is what Mary anointed Jesus' feet with when he resurrected himself. Aah, the joys of Religious Studies A Level! Ho ho hee hee.  Amy
Spilt Wine My wine glass got tipped over and I got upset, after all, what a tragic waste of alcohol =P And I thought about that saying 'Don't cry over spilt milk.' And I thought... hey... =) Jim Town
Spinal Cracker Another ingenious lyrics from The Beatles' classic "Come Together", which could also give birth to groups like "Walrus Gumboot", "Mojo Filter", "Holy Rollers", "Toejam Football", "Ono SideCar" and "Shooting Coca-Cola", but Spinal Cracker is the best. beegles
Spineless Almost sounds like a Grunge type of band. Rock on. not-so-superman
Spiraling Decay I think this is an awesome oppurtunity for a punk or grunge band for a name. I came up with it when i was feeling down and it just popped up in my big mexican head.  Thundakatz from ohio
SpiritDrake Because it's my favorite temple in 'Zelda, Ocarina of Time'. Drake has to do with dragons. James Luke
Spirochetes Tthey are the little infectious organisms that cause venereal disease. Pronounced "spiro-keets" kane
Spit 180 It sounds kool. I made it up when my friend was spitting  AJ Jender

Spit Shine Well...... I go to school At York Tech and i have to shine boots for my shop. And my instructor said that we had to have a good "Spit Shine" on our boots. So i said that would be a cool band name.. Jd Brunner
Spit'N'Fish it comes out of th Bible...jonah and the whale...! it came to us when we were lookin or tryin to find out band names cause we had to cahnge ours because it had been a name for atleast 4 bands already! shibby! The Spann's
Spiteface I saw an interview Billy Corgan did recently, and they asked him what the first song he ever wrote was, and it was aparently a song called Spiteface, and I thought that was a pretty cool name. Deathawk
Splat! A bit like Wham! only sort of warmer and wetter, and probably squishier.  Rich
Spleen I just think the word sounds funny. IHaveNoBrain
Spleunkers In Kilts Just made it up during a conversation. We thought it was a funny "what if" band name. Meh

Splitline Cartridge I saw it on a package of weedwacker string. I guess that is what kind of cartridge it is. But yeah, it's a pretty cool name for a band. So my friend and i keep making logos and things using that name. Phoenix
Splitserz This band name is so cool because it has the term Split in it...like when a guy and girl break up...and serz is just an awesome addon to the name!! I think that all bands should have awesome names like this! It's a good name for a punk-rock band. the guy next-door....
Splitting Headache How is that not just the coolest band name in the world! There is no need to explain that! Definately a heavy metal band though! Pigertaws
Sploobz It was the name of my Dad's college band SpLoObZ
Spoiled Rich Kids It would be cool for an alt/punk band that wants to PO the yuppies and go against the grain. I came up with it thinking of a band names for my band, driving from work and a pulled up next to a teenager in a SWEET Mustang Cobra.  RobM
The Spoken For i was english class and the teacher said something and this kid said "Speak for yourself!" and i said "yea im already spoken for." n8
Spoken Monolith Of The Forgotten It is our band name and we thought of it because a monolith is a stone from a circle such as stonehenge or something and they are always forgotten and never spoken of... Bradd
Spoken Reason  Fetus Cape
Spongemonkey Can't go wrong with old-fashioned randomness! IHaveNoBrain
Spontaneously Naked It has happened to me before....I lie to you not....and what is music? It is life...and that is the story of my life....that and..well...30 kilograms of cheese whiz...and i don't even use the metric system regularly....but one cannot be regular with thirty bloody kilos of cheese...whilst thou art in the nude state.......... The Incredible Myself
Spontanyous Its awesome, when someone asks who the band is, you just say there spontanyous like out of no where. People will be mixed up all over the place. Great fun T.M.
Spooge It's just a cool word that is practical and can be used for any type of substance. e.g. pass me the sun spooge, do you have any lip spooge?... rldemas
Spooky's Gun Rack My assistant grocery manager's nickname is Spooky. He's always talking about going fishing or killing bears and going hunting. kenneth
Spoon Dogs Wellll...me and my friend are quite strange...we come up with random things like this kinda often...so i thought it was kewl. Im the only one arent i :o( hehehehe SuMGuRL
Spoon-fed A-ness Read it out loud. "A-ness" stands for awesomeness. Psycho
The Spoonbills Since there are numerous bird names for bands, including The Larks, The Sandpipers, The Flamingos, and The Eagles, here's another bird name I thought I'd suggest! D. Melody Dole, MD
Spoonerisms it is on the side of the page im on.... Noah
Spore Addicts A play on the word "sporatic". If you crave mushrooms, you are a 'spore addict'. Jon
Spork I love sporks. I was eating with one and thought it would be a cool band name! alicia thompson
Spork I was at taco bell one day, and all they had were sporks. Plus, sporks are awesome, half spoon - half fork. Think of the possibilities. sexy monkey
SpOrK Dedicated to those annoying, little plastic eating utensils --the combination of spoon and fork-- the SPORK!! Megan Pray
Spork Attack You know those spoon/fork thingies you get at KFC for your coleslaw? Dave
Sporknife sittin' around one day and thought up a way to not only combine a fork and a spoon to make spork but also a knife. .. .giving you. . .Sporknife Sara
Sporks and Foons My friend tried to say forks and spoons,but it kinda came out like that!  Tash
Sport once you think about it and say it a few times, you'll realize it's the weirdest word in the world Adam
The Sporting Woodsmen Of course there's the double-meaning, with one meaning a state of sexual arousal, if I needed to point that out. If you like the Far Side comics a good first album cover art selection would be the one where the deer hunter throws down his gun and the deer throws down his antlers as they begin to fight - which was the inspiration for this band name. retrofitz
Spot The Dog Gonna use this one myself! You can say it either way, both works just fine. Ronhar
Spotted Shower Its like a great band everyone has heard of but never seen. When they always say "spotted showers" on the weather reports I go out and look for one. Everybody I ask has never seen a spotted shower either but we've all heard of em! They are famous, they must have a good front man. No one even knows what color the spots are supposed to be. badboybear
Sprinkle88 The number 88 can override any number if a mistake is made. Sprinkle is very cool, it really is. Sprinkle88. RanTon
SprinkleBack He\\ it jus got a nice ring 2 it Squirt #9983276452345
The Spurious Hah ha, me and my mates were thinking of a decent band name, i suddenly cam upon a thesaurus! what are the chances of that? Well, after a hard battle against my friends hamster, that was eating the thesaurus, i retreived it victoriously , and threw it at my friend. That was my plan all along. However it happened to land of the page say 'Spurious'. This word happens to mean B*stards and random. Excellent Bonceyrogs
Sputnik Candy While sitting in Social Studies class exceedingly bored, I stumbled upon the word 'sputnik', (the sattelite), and immediatly fell in love with the way it sounded. My mind then began drifting to candy. I combined the two words in my head, and found that they would make an insanely spectacular name for a hardcore, original punk rock band. Spoo the Amazing
The Sputum Samples For fans of the TV series "The Big Bang Theory". Opie M.
Square Moon Sound like a experimental band, really cool name, I was up to call my band like this, but we play trashy-heavy metal and the name sounds too soft Riveret
The Square Root of the Fifty-Degree Angle Some guy was pretending to say something smart, so he blurted out something like this. Could be the name of an 80's one hit wonder band.  aldrAea
Square Wheels Old expression, used when the car has bad suspension. Sounds cool. Alex
Squarepusher. This is the coolest-sounding(one o em anyway) drum 'n bass artist name, but I don't know exactly why Tom Jenkinson decided too call himself that... jonnio
Squash Banana I'm a nerd that watches way too much Disney movies... Rafiki is the greatest character ever, and his song is pure excellence... if I had any musical talent this would be one of my top band name choices. Elle
The Squee-Gees Okay, so it kinda sounds like the Bee Gees, but how cool is the name of this common household item? Emily
Squeegie My homies and I came up with this name because our first album is called Look Through the Window and we wanted a name too do with windows. We were originally THE WINDOW WASHERS but we thought it was to repetive to have the word window in your band name, album and first single. We changed it to something you wash the windows with. hohopollio235
Squeegy! haha.. I was at my dads house helping him wipe down windows and make them dry w/ a "Squeegy" and I had no clue what they were called, so I asked my dad, he told me, "Squeegy!" I was like "Holy f***!" i loved the word! I kept saying it over and over and over, it sounds like a kinda weird / cheesy band name but I find it cool! .....
Squid Pistol This one just came to me out of the blue. I think they would be a wacky Alternative band that would do music much like that of Smashmouth. drlondon
Squiggly Line~ I always thought what the was the point of that letter/symbol on the keyboard. So, now I'm gonna use it in here! I think It's a cool letter/symbol so there. Now I have made the band name, "Squiggly Line~" (You need the little squiggle too.) Tunks Verman
Squirrelly Wrath My BFF and I were at EMP and asked to name a band we wanted to start. Since we had been watching way to much "Neurotically Yours", my friend said, "We're Squirrelly Wrath, and we're gonna getcha!" Leila Chan
Squirrels In The Attic My dad told me there were squirrels in our attic. I thought "hey! that would make a great band name someday" Leann
SRO On Broadway, when a show is sold out, the theater management puts out a sign on the ticket window that says "SRO" or "Standing Room Only". If musicians want to be a great band, they would hope that their concerts are SRO.  united
St Dominics School Choir We go to St Dominics school... and we thought it was original Kirsty and Alex
St. Anik This is a good name for a heavy metal type band b/c when you say it, it sounds like "satanic" Katie L.
St. Dismas & Gestas The two thieves who were crucified with Jesus on the three crosses. Neat. (Not Yet) Pope Francis II
St. Kitts & Nevis I know that some bands are named after countries, but this makes a VERY good band name! :) Lucia Bevilacqua
St. Sakura It's great for a J-Pop girl group! I came up with it watching some awards show, as I was looking for names for my girl group (we were Sugar Puffs....) and I saw "St. Nowhere" and since we were all obsessed with Cardcaptor Sakura, I came up with St. Sakura! So I say name a J-Pop band that. Ari
St. Timmy I came up with the name becuase of Green Day's song "St. Jimmy". This is a cool name! MIXMASTA
St. Vincent and the Grenadines The real St. Vincent and the Grenadines is a Carribbean country. I've been thinking for a while now of starting a ska/reggae band under the name. How utterly appropriate it would be. Pinto
St0rm What happened was there was MTV on, during a storm. Well, me and my buds sung the songs, but the storm cut the power off, and so wa sung the rest of the song that we were listening to. bob
Stabbing Lucifer well we were all just sorta sitting around here at my place one day trying to think of a name and my friend was like how bout stabbing something thats always good, then i was like lucifer...stabbing lucifer feen dog
Stabfour In an episode of "Simpsons", there was a Beatles cover band called this that was playing in a prison. GlamRockNinjaLord
Stack Overflow What pops up on the screen when the Internet runs out of bandwidth. Some Guy
Stage Fright We thought of Stage Fright because it sounds kool and its a fear that can eat away at you, but we were strong enough to over come it and now were on are way to being the next Evanescence or 12 Stones! Joe DeKezel
Stagefright A band with the name stagefright. I just think that'd be funny. Sera
Stained Back It's my band name and we thought it was cool because we are always wearing back clothes, painted back nails, etc...so we thought what better name then Stained Black! We're a punk/rock band and its me (a girl) and three guys! nikki
