Names -> Cool Band Names -> T, Page 1

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.

T3mptress i was surfing the web for a band name and i saw on a sight it was in a phrase, and i kinda liked it. so i changed the e to a 3 to make it look different. i dont know tho Inoaku
T4 Hotties I had a pop magazine called tvhits and at the bottom it had the name of popstars. In among it was T4 Hotties (T4 is a TV programme). And I thought that T4 Hotties sounded a good name for a pop group, as it was in among names of popstars. Tony
The Tabloid Generation It's actually a Goo Goo Dolls lyric, but ever since I heard it, I always thought it was an awesome idea for a band name. I mean think about it... Cate
Tabula Rasta Tabula Rasa means clean slate (basically starting over). Thus, the name Tabula RASTA would be perfect for some new Reggae band. Nick Prol
The Tactical One Handers This is my current band name. I was reading a knife ad and it said "The Tactical One Hander". i thought it was witty and provocative enough to be the name of our post-grunge, punk band. Eric Thomas
Tae-Kwon-Dodo Um, we were watching Ice Age, and I do Tae-Kwon-Do, so some kid made a stupid remark, which I actually think is kind of funny now. Douglas Bucksworth aka D.B.

Tainted Beef My brother got a hamburger from this restaurant and it was still bleeding, so we came up with this name. black star
Take Off Thine Pants If you want to be totally inappropriate... IHaveNoBrain
Take The Payne Quite cool because pain is spelt differently. I found this name while I was playing "Max Payne" on my xBox and suddenly this came to my head. Fantasy
Taken My cousin and I were looking at band names on the Internet, and they were all taken. So he suggested 'Taken'. Shaefer
Taken Property I stole someone's lunchbox; and then I thought I took someone's property. Then I thought that would be a cool band name "Taken Property". susan sky
Taking Back Pentacle Even though it sounds like Taking Back Sunday, it's cool because it's about winning back something that was ruined by what people think. Like a reputation or the ancient sign of paganism. Sarle
Taking Back Subway it came from the band name taking back sunday, and i like subway, except when they put to much mayo on the sub then i take it back thursday
The Talentless Hacks This is the name of my band. I just sort of gathered together a bunch of amateur musicians, and we started to jam a bit. We sounded completely awful, so I said that we sounded like a bunch of talentless hacks. We practised and got better, but the name sticks. Fish
Tales Untold I had the spontaneous urge to come up with a bunch of band names. *shrugs* Justine Longborn

Talking Out Your Butt What my Dad says most politicians do. IHaveNoBrain
Talkover First thing I saw when I just looked to the right. DarkJon64
The Tallahassee Tigers I like it because it's alliterative. And I just think cat names are cool. I don't know what kind of music they'd play though. But I think there should be a band with the word tigers in it so I just put it together with the first U.S. city that I thought of that started with T. Tallahassee would obviously be the band's hometown. Edward
Tallywackers  Me and my friends were walking down a road near some old pubs, and we saw a homeless man. On impulse, I took out a 1p coin and said to him "Now my man, would you juggle for a shiny penny?" Upon which he called me a tally wacker. Whatever that is Ringo Starr

Tangerine And Banshee Band As a child, I always got the words "tangerine" and "tambourine" confused. And from the first time I heard someone refer to a banshee, I thought it was an intentional or unintentional alteration of the word "banjo". Tess O. Gosset
Tangerine Love Puppies a friend of mine and one of his old friends used to have this friend that agreed with everything they said whether he knew what they were talkin about or not. one day they were askin him if he liked certain bands, and they knew he hadn't heard of half of them, so to mess with his mind, they asked him if he liked the tangerine love puppies and he said he loved them. greg

Tanya Rose & The Buffalo Chip Kickers What better name for a hillbilly band? We took a picture of a buffalo head nickel, changed a back leg to a kicking position with a meadow muffin (manure) flying off the buffalo's hoof and the band's name at the top of the nickel. That's our band logo. My husband thought of the name.  Tanya Rose

Tarantula Joy Hypnosis I used my initials and made a name for our band which doesn't have a lead guitar or drummer. Travis
Tarnished Halos (or Haloes, if you prefer) I thought of it in connection with Hell's Angels, and it kind of spiraled out from there. I'm picturing an angry-girl-group type thing -- think of The Supremes getting the spotlight back from Diana Ross ... Spoon

The Tavadors Met a guy with the surname Tavador at a festival over the summer and thought it sounded kind of cool. Jojo
Tayla Loves Dave this name comes from my favorite website, www.davegrohl'sbestkeptsecret.com. It is run by a crazy Canadian lady who swears up and down that she's Dave Grohl's mistress. That's pretty cool in my book. Nyla
TBA Stands for: To Be Announced. It justs sounds like a cool name too. The Alex Basso
TDC It was our old name it stands for Transparent Dangling Carrots which was in Alanis morrisette's Thank you and it was the first thing that came into my head when she said think of a name for our band Pudding

Teachers Many may use your music to practice or "teach" themselves. NICKI
Teachers That Need Ritilin My friends and I (who are all teachers) were at a teacher's conference and acting really off the wall. Someone we knew saw us and said, "You guys should be on Ritilin!" (One of the big controversies in education is the use of the drug Ritilin for children who have ADHD, Attention Deficit - Hyperactivity Disorder.) So I thought it would be wonderfully ironic to have a band made up of teachers who need Ritilin because they and not necessarily their kids are off the wall too!  Fred
Teacup Airplane Takeover! My friend said it for some unknown reason and I thought it would be a cool band name umm
Team 17 It was my team's number in the mini basketball tournament my primary school had years ago. I thought the rhyme in it sounded pretty cool. Ryan
Tears Drop On My Converse Its a good name for an emo band!  SuperXero
Tears Full of Blood emo?? Sara Hamilton
Tears Of A Tree God died on a cross which is made out of wood which is from a tree. The tears kinda represent his blood or his own tears...plus it sounds cool David
Tears of Blood Words could also be rearranged as Crying Blood etc. I got it from a picture on the net of a little girl crying tears of blood. Sounds depressing but i like it.  Missy
Tears of the Damned I was listening to the Queen of the Damned soundtrack and thinking about depressing, gothic-type stuff. Would make a good name for a death metal or goth metal band, I think.  OnixxFilth
The Teats c'mon, how stupidly unoriginal would "The Teats' be-- you could have a ginat dancing boob like Iron Maiden's Eddie! Colin
Tebowmaniac A play off "Tebowmania" JeReMy
Technical Ecstasy It's one of Black Sabbath's album names, but not an actual band name. It sounds cool as Hell. Duston
Technicolor Scream Slang for vomiting. Donny
Technicolor Weather I saw this was the name of an episode of the TV series Strangest Weather On Earth. And I thought, that would make a great band name. I can't decide what style of music they'd play though. Edward
Ted Braun It's a character from a German show called "Loriot". The guy is just real chilled and layed back, so we (my band and I) named us after him :P max

Teenage Golf Balls My boss is an avid golf fan with teenage children. She had mentioned that none of the balls she putted ever went in the hole. She called them "Teenage Golf Balls" because they never did what she wanted them to, just like a teenager. boss
Teenage Hearts are Unisex Somebody said this about the emo bands and how girls like the music when emo is sort-of a "boys-club only." And its true. Teenagers feelings are unisex. Chokex
Teenage Hormones I just figured that most of the people on this site are hormonal teenagers so get what it's like to be a hormonal teenager whereas parents don't. so it would be for non-adults, and would drive parents crazy because of the songs you could come out with.  Aimee
Teenage Immaculate Romance Isn't it pretty? It describes me and my friends' attitude toward romance. We're teenagers, we're "immaculate" (pure), but we still like boys! It just sort of popped into my head one day. Maggie
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Doves I saw a Christmas performance by a middle school choir. One bizarre part was a performance of "The Twelve Days Of Christmas" in which only one member of the choir was onstage at a time. Each one was dressed or otherwise acting out the gift referred to in each verse of the song. The one for the second day was a girl who part of the time flapped her arms in imitation of bird wings to act out the dove part. For the turtle part she was wearing on her back a plastic turtle shell that was from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles merchandise. Sort of a reaching portrayal, since mere wing flapping doesn't specify a dove among birds, and a turtle dove really sports nothing resembling a turtle shell! Nonetheless the portrayal gave me this idea for a band name. Adlai Alda
Teenage Roadkill Me and my dad were in driving to the mall and these guys were balancing on a high snowbank on the side of the highway. My dad said "If these guys aren't careful they're gonna end up being teenage roadkill." I think it's a cool name for a band or a song by a punk/ corporate rock group. ~*~Rebecca M~*~

Teic 2 It's pronunced like Take 2 but it stands for (The End Is Coming too soon) Rob
Teletone When I think of a telephone, I always wander into the word "tone". So I combined these two words to make Teletone. Will
Teletubbies in Afghanistan I find this hillarious because when I was watching the news, they took a call from a hippe dude about wut to do with Al Quida, and he said to get planes to spray sleep powder (cant remember the chemical name)on the terroriest and then send our solidiers in dressed in telebtubbie suits. Its funny when u think about it! First Hit Single : Spraying the Gass First Album : Eho! Desolate Messiah
The Televangelust You would get it if you knew what a televangelist was. Stiv Bators
Teloopcakes Someone submitted this as a misheard lyric from "The Reflex" by Duran Duran. I don't know what that person was thinking, and I certainly don't know what teloopcakes are. Dutch

Temporary Inanity A semi-serious band that occasionally plays a Weird Al Yankovic cover. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Tempral Warfare Just think about it with me for a sec. Tempral as in time, warfare as in, well, if you dont know thats sad. It would be the most exciting war ever! people hiding in different eras and staging battles there :) Cpt. Neeb
Ten Cents A Screw The punchline to a joke I heard in grade 4, but never understood until a few years ago when I was thinking about it. Left of Centre
Ten Foot Midget When I was in 9th grade, my English teacher told us to think of an oxymoron, and that's what I thought of. Liz
