Names -> Cool Band Names -> S, Page 10

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:
Stairway to Eleven If Led Zeppelin and Spinal Tap teamed up to form a supergroup... RevengeFromMars YouTube
Stalin Stole My Strawberry I came up with this after seeing "Hitler Stole My Potato" in the stupid band names section. Winter Pepper
Stalker John A double-reference: a nod to the M*A*S*H character Trapper John but mainly a reference to John Stalker, a well-known figure in the UK. He used to be the outspoken deputy chief constable of Manchester Police, until he was implicated in a corruption case and forced into early retirement. Bizarrely, after a few years out of the public eye, he can now regularly be seen advertising roll-out sunblinds on daytime TV.  Goosey Gander
Stalking Grandma stalkers never stalk old people..so i figured get grandma some credit shes hott for a 80 year old moe lee
Stalking Kyle Park It's the screen name of some chick that stalks a kid in my school. It would make a good chick band name, but if you change it to a girl's name it works for a guy band too.  The Platypus
Stall Number Five Good name for a punk band; came up with it when in a subway system whose name will not be mentioned, and the call of nature diredted me to the bathroom. There was only 5 stalls, and the first four were full. The last one had a very large , dead squid inside of it. Barry Wolfenden
Stammer When there is just no good word for the way they rock....the fans just Stammer Trickett
Stand and Deliver We saw this somewhere on the internet. We couldn't stop talking about how funny it was. It sounds so innocent but is so guilty. We are currently using this one. Ryan,Grant,Zack,Travis
Stand On My Own 0.6096 Meters A story I once heard (Told for true, although I don't know), is that someone once wrote a computer program to edit texts to convert English units into metric units. That was what it allegedly did with the phrase "Stand on my own two feet". D. Melody Dole, MD
The Stand-Out Krauts It rhymes. Winter Pepper
Standard Diviation I think this is the coolest band name ever!!!!!! We play rock and it just fits!!!!!! LZRD
Standard Protocol I was thinking of a name for my band. I was searching the web for emergencies. It was in a sentence that said, "It's the standard protocol". anonymous
Standing Elbow Jumps Once, I was skiing and there was a sign that said "No standing below jumps", meaning stay away from jumps so someone doesn't land on you. I misread it as "No Standing Elbow Jumps". Ten Second Braeden
Standing On A Stout Stout is a strong black beer, and I can't stand drinking it... Fields
Stantron And The Lickity Splits Stantron is my robot alter ego. The lickity splits is my loyal army of robots. stanton
Stapende Doet "Walking dead" in Dutch Jasper
Star Cravin' Madness I used to think that "stark raven madness" was"star cravin' madness". Regina Haniger
Star Dreamers Its a top name for a popband, me and my mate come up with it because we really wanted to be in stardom ! Gemma
Star Freeze This is on a pokemon card and is one of Starmie's attacks. It would be cool for a techno/ska band! Panic Pagoda
Starblood It just sounds strangely evil and also really epic... G
Starcraft My friend Kyle & I like to play the game so we are thinking about naming our band that. Our band might be playin' other band's songs. Rikochet
StarDust i was looking at my films! Em&Emz
The Stare The singers of 70's punk bands (mainly Johnny Rotten) always seemed to have a really hard cold stare. So that's why! punk111
Starfish Pizza Cool image but foul-tasting idea. Johnny D
The Stark Naked Car Thieves When I was younger listening to music in my room, my grandpa would always walk by and say "Who the hell are you listening to? The Stark naked car thieves???" I always said if I started a band that's what I would name it!  Cheryl Baker
Stark Raving Mad It means 'insane'. I just thought it sounded cool...to me, it sounds like a cool punk band name. And that's the way the cookie crumbles. :) Steph-o
The Stars A simple name that pretty much describes what most music groups are these days. I actually used it in a short story for a character of mine. Larcen Tyler
Starscream's Giant Ego If you've ever seen the original Transformers series, then you just know. IHaveNoBrain
starstruck this name is rad because each time you see a band play you feel an "awwwwwwww" thast wat a band shoudl be called! melissa
Starting Monday i came up with it because my teacher always says it and the bassist and other guitarist thought of it. its for a punk rock Mike
Starvation Army Didn't come up with this, but it's a dead 80's punk band with the best name in existance. FACE
Starving Poeit(s) Yoc can keep the "s" or take it away. Poets are sometimes referred to as starving if no one likes their poems; and it's cool to misspell things. Stickman
State Emergency I started my own all girl rock band and...duh?! were hot!!!! were soft rock/RnB rap. Now whatcha think of dat??!! Temprince
State Of Error Thought up by a friend of mine as he was sitting around the house and pondering to himself about the situation with the Iraq war and how USA and Britain are going to cope with the threat looming in Iran. B Boy
The State vs. Sodomy It's a reference to the line "The state looks down on sodomy" from "What's My Age Again?" JeReMy
Stateminority jus last night was thinkin bout some names fur my name and came across it and told it to my band and they disliked it so i decided to put it on here Max
The Staten Islanders It kinda brings some pride in being a native of Staten Island, NY. Plus, since there was an actual band in the 1970s called "New York City", then this would be appropriate for a band named after a borough. Anthony 'A-Log' LoGatto
Static Link looks cool to me because it makes myself funny, and besides, i got it on warcraft DotA ojay mendiola
Stating The Obivious  I was looking at the explanations of some of the names here on this site and one read "that was just stating the totally obvious". I was like, "Woah, that would be a cool band name". So I got stating the obivious. tony_gurl
Station Night At A Vacation The result if a childhood misinterpretation of "station identification", which was announced at the end of the last prime time network show of the night in the 70s. It sounds better than the original. Terry Cloth
Statistical Probability I liked this name because everyone seems to judge you based on the statistics or because of how probable it is that you will fail. Screw that...I want to throw it out and maybe someone can defy the standards of which we are judged!!! julie
Statix I just thought it was cool because it's misspelled to sound like "Statics." I thought of it while watching a music video on MTV...and suddenly, all of it turned to static.  Coolio
Statue of Puberty On the old ABC show Whose Line is it Anyway, one suggestion for the game "Scenes from a Hat" was "America's least popular monuments". Two of the "monuments" were the "Statue of Puberty" and "Viagra Falls". Since Viagra Falls is already on the site, why not Statue of Puberty. JeReMy
Status Unknown I came up with this name one day when I was high and looking for something to use for an email address. After that, it just stuck. AJ
Statutory Grape  Great for a hardcore-type boy band whose groupies consist of 14 year old girls who hate thier parents. justin
Staypuft Staypuft Marshmallow Man....its just sweet radioheadistheworldsbestband
Stbin One of the better band names I've come up with, in my opinion, this name is for a band that thinks of themselves as trashy yet intellectual. (The word "Stbin" is formed when you take the "duh" out of "dustbin.") Olvan The Terrible
STD Great rap group name. Perhaps the next Eminem. Dick Burns
STD Not my band, a friend's, stands for Severe Tire Damage (think parking lot spikes to prevent backing up). They were the FIRST band to stream live on the web (bunch o' GEEKS)...1996, i think, beating the Stones by ?(a small amount of time). The double-entendre acronym still gets mileage. NOT Russ Haines
Steak and Potatoes Common dinner dish. NICKI
Stealing Bones My band is in transition with two members leaving. The surviving members are going to replace the parts, change the name and get a fresh start. But we are a classic rock band, hence we play other peoples music (stealing) and a good many members of those bands have passed on (bones). I think it sounds cool and it has a real meaning behind it. Zymurgy
Stealing Fire I don't know I thought of it one day with my friends. jennit lee
Stealth Ninja Polar Bear Ninjas and polar bears are cool, so combine them and you have one h*** of a killing machine. Barnesy
Steaming Faces Only works if you're dirty punk rock. VAL
Steaming Hot Pilez Wanted one of those 3 word names that was vogue for awhile.....sounds kinda like stone temple pilots barry sinclair aka jesus manson
steaming pile The name of a band at my school, kinda funny. sara
Steaming Rigatoni and the Oxford Scholars My friend Greg made it up, he was just looking at random books in his house and choose words from their titles to make the name. Anyway, it would definitely be a ska band... Laurendo
The Steel Breeze A recurring theme in Floyd's beautiful piece "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" from WYWH. Its more or less the idea behind it, to get blown on steel breeze (many interpretations). Two very culminating words. I'll bet there's a few bands out there with this very name.. Goodolarchie
Steel Bridge could be the kind of bridge that you drive on, or the bridge of your guitar. hmmmm. skooch
Steel Democrats Al Gore's favorite band. Probably a country band. Junior
Steel Feather We were having some crazy discussion in physical science about air resistance and one of my friends asked if a feather made of steel would fall very fast. I insantly yelled out BAND NAME! turd ferguson
Steel Songbird Along the same lines as Iron Butterfly and Stone Roses. Princess Ana
Steelhead, or the Yo-yos. I think if your band plays rippin, thrashin metal, or hard rock, steelhead, i think, is a great name. Does anyone else? The Yo-yos, i think, would be if your playing Oldies, or like early 70's, late 60's music. Josh
Stefany's Last Decade It's cool, because the name "Stephanie" isn't spelled like it normally is. I know a lot of bands out there use names in their band names, so why not? Katie
Stella This is a cool name 'cause it means Bright Star, and when you're in a band you wanna be a star right? (although you might get slapped with some court issues from Hoku, but you can argue in your defense that you were much, much better!) Molly
Stella Rossa Stella Rossa means "red star" in Itialian and people who are in bands need to shoot for the stars and my faviorte color is red. -------------
Step On Tacks One day I had my friend over for dinner and we were talking about cool band names, and all of a sudden I stepped on a tack and she said, "That's it! Step On Tacks!" Tiphaniegh
Stephen's Demons There is this guy I know called Stephen and he is the Supreme Master of Evil. His other friends are the demons. So I put 2 and 2 together.... quickstep
Steps to Nowhere i was on a balcony looking down at these stairs that led to nowhere. Most of these bands today are going to steeping to nowhere. Theyll try hard but most wont succeed due to the amount of talent you need to become big michael bruce
Stereo-vision Because it's at the beginning of old movies. Christoph
Stereophonic Breadsticks I saw it on a Dominos Pizza commercial. The joke was that they imaginable in front of the word "breadsticks" and "free" was the most popular. Stereophonic was one of the rejects and I just thought, that's brilliant Gnome Man
Stereos This means solid in Greek, plus it sounds cool langt
Stereothrash one day my radio wasnt working, so i threw it out the window and stomped on it (lol) so i said to my mom, "i thrashed my stereo up"and it just came to me. STEREOTHRASH kevin
Stereotyped Youth Our guitarist's dad said that bands are gangs and all we will do is drugs and kill people. So just because we were young we got stereotyped. Jeffery
Sterile Clean..?...sure...like a needle in your arm. Trickett
Sterile Tortoise it's cool coz it's my email. I came up with it by doing really cruel things to animals in my 'normal' childhood. Jason
Steve Irwin's wildlife warriors I was watching animal planet and a comercial came on for the wildlife warrior's fund and I thought that it would be a nice name for a band in memory of Steve Irwin Ashley
Steve Just Steve The name of a "band" from some kid's show. No one in it was named Steve. BRILLIANT! meeeee
Steve Novak Djokovic A combination of Toronto Raptors player Steve Novak and tennis player Novak Djokovic JeReMy
The Stewieheads Remember The Lemonheads? Since the head of Stewie Griffin of "Family Guy" fame is shaped like a lemon (albeit a long lemon), he could inspire a perfectly evil death metal band.  Sir Dame
Stick To Butter A friend forwarded me an e-mail on how much better butter is for you than margarine and it "stuck" (did you know margarine is one molecule away from being plastic?!) luvjo
Stick To Your Guns I just like that saying; it sounds like a pretty cool band name. michael
stiff banaa Well, I have to give the credit to my friend heather. We were trying to name my friend's band, and we were thinkin of limp bizkit so we were like okay stiff is the opposite of limp and as for bizkit, we were like okay, funny-shaped foodstuff = banana ;), so hence, stiff banana was born. I think it would be cool for a band who have a good sense of humour and want to rip the piss outta limp bizkit or other metal bands like that lauren
Stiff C*** Midgets Imagine the posters. Besides, who wouldn´t want to see midgets with stiff c***s??? Henke Hantel
STIFF RICHARD do i really need to explain why this is so cool .  joe mamma
Stigmata My mates and I were looking through a dictionary for a cool metal band name. Stigmata means the holes in Jesus' wrists when he was crucified, or an outcast from society. cypher
Stigmatized Casanova I was doing a project for my art class where you had to create a cd cover for a band (real or made up) I was gonna do The Calling, but that was typical of me. So I thought and I'm like "Oooo how about Stigmatized Casanova?" Stigmatized because in my head I saw like these Gothic Vampires, and Vampires are always disgraceful because they are vampires. These particular group of vampires are lady chamers. Chelsie
The Stiletto Secret Joking with a guy friend that he likes to wear heels. Erin McCord
Still Strong My band and i have broken up and gone from, Denver Harbor to Harboring Denver to Hearts Aquitted to League of Corrinth to Mark Hamell and the Avengers to Long Road Ahead, and then the 4 of us reunited once and for all and said we're Still Strong but under the band name 7th Inning Stretch JJ
Still To Be Decided it isn't . its gay, but whatever. someone was like whut are you gauys called and i was like its still to be decided Kyla
Stingrays Of The Great Basin A friend of mine says that each US state somehow brings up some image in her mind. Nevada, she says, makes her think of a stingray for some reason.  Regina Haniger
The Stink Pickles My step-brother was over and he told me he didn't want to fart 'cause he was afraid he might push out a stink pickle, he thinks it would be a good name for my band. dustin
the Stinkin' Fish I think that's a nice name for a band:) It's cool because if they really suck, they can admit it...if they don't, then....it's just cool. My friend has a band, and I sometimes joke at him like that. I call his band "The Stinkin' Fish"... Alex
Stinkiosity It was on an episode of "Growing Pains". Carol's teacher told her that her essay was "replete with stinkiosity".  Phillip "Screw" Driver
The Stints 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
Stives It really is St. Ives all squished together. IO made it up while i was in the shower using St. Ives body wash... Frankie
Stocker My worst enemy's last name is Lax, and one day, I was calling him "L.A.X.," and he started shouting at me, "S-T-O-C-K-E-R! Stalker! Stalker!" I know, he's such an idiot for not knowing how to spell "stalker." Rachel
The Stockholm Smashers Just in case the NFL wants a football team in Sweden, this would be a perfect name. If not, then another Scandinavian hot rock band. Opie M.
Stockz N Bondz It's like one of those hip hop names where they change the S's to Z's. Luke
Stoic It means 'unaffected by pleasure or pain'. I think it would be awesome for a goth/punk band. It just sounds so cool. I love it. Whisper
