Names -> Cool Band Names -> U, 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.

Submitted by:
U-turn I know a good band called "the turn" I thought making U-turn was kind of cool. Andrew
Uber-Hyper-Atomic-Radioactive-Flapjack Mk 9  I was trying to come up with a name for a friggin' Spaceship/waffle house... and apparently I suffer from some slight difficulty in determining the difference between a WAFFLE and a PANCAKE... because this is what I got. Eveloth Andante the 5th
Ubiquious Well it just sounded cool, but it adds a mysterious factor in the name. Taylor Hern
Ubiquitous Ellipses Literally: "Those three dots are everywhere!" I'm a web develper and I was commenting that ellipses were used WAY too much on the Internet and we needed to get rid of "Ubiquitous Ellipses" and I liked the way it rolls off the tongue. Ric Johnson
Udderly Insane Cows  First of all cows are cool animals, and the whole "udder"ly thing is kind of funny. I can see a hard-core rock band with a picture of a deranged cow on the cd cover.  kyra
Ufornica fornicate - have sex U = you self explanatory - sounds cool - isnt spelt right - no one has a clue wot it means really jus looks gud JD
Ugly Just cause. Ummm cause I want to go on stage and say..."Were Ugly" Literally... Sarah
The Ugly Hat Brigade It's from "Star Wars". A reference to all those Imperial guys who have to wear those REALLY ugly hats. IHaveNoBrain
Uhurus Obsession Could be the name given by phsycologists to identify some kind of overly obsessed behavioral aberration, relating to a "Star Trek," character observed in some "Trekkies". It would also be a cool band name. badboybear
Ultimate Confussion I thought this would be a cool band name because it's so confusing to come up with a cool band name. Jacob Sasser
Ultimatly Destructive  We we're making a descripton of ourselves, and that's what I started out with. GothicGrl
Ultimatress Vandal The Ultimate Mattress!!! And I figured people who rip off those labels are vandals, well, sort of, but if someone ripped the tag off the ultimatress then they would have defaced an international treasure!!! Madame Blah
Ultra Beavis Like Beavis, only a lot more so! IHaveNoBrain
Ultratorch I think it's cool because it provokes a lot of album art. I thought of it long ago. Colt j. Ledford
Ultrazone In the comedy series Red Dwarf, it's a drug that androids take. Mz
Umbilical Ukele  All this electronic amplified, enhanced effects and digitized slamming sting music will always be tied like a umbilical cord to the simple ukelele. Love your ukelele, its part of music magic. badboybear
The Umbrella Academy It's a future comic book to be created by Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance, and it sounds really rad. :] Tinsley Ward <3
Umbrella Killer It's from World's Dumbest. In an episode about dumb meltdowns, "Umbrella Killer" was a fake movie based on the Britney Spears incident when she beat a car with an umbrella in 2007. JeReMy
Umgebung It's a german word i had recently learned in class. It means: surrounding area, but it's just really fun to say (Oom-gay-boong)! Benstein1
The Umm's Like the expression "Umm" when you are thinking. K4rn4ge
Una-Bono My old roommate and I used to keep a list of fictional band names on the table. This one came to me during the search for the Unabomber. To combine it with U2 just seemed to fit. Would work for either a Goth Metal band, or possibly an Industrial rock band, a la Ministry. Jason
Unable to comply I was just thinking one day and i came up with that. its a good name if ur band is made up of Gen-asses like mine. Number1Stoner
The Unbeatables I was playing soccer in a mini-tournament and had to think of a cool team name and this came to mind. And the irony of it all... we lost all the games :D india_rulz
Unbound Chains Unbound Chains sounds awesome, and it gives you an immediate picture, so it has imagery with it. I came up with it from listening to Stone Temple Pilots' "Wicked Garden", when the line reads, "out of the chains that bind you". I don't know, that line just sounded cool to me, and kind of represents being freed, and released from the things that hold you back. SeenWithoutEyes
Uncalled Four Four of us were thinking of starting a band and we couldn't come up with a name. Therefore: the Uncalled Four. Yeah but then we got another member to the band. So... it just didn't work anymore. The Jess
Unchained Valor This actually was the name of my metal band in junior high 20 years ago. I chose "unchained" for the Van Halen song of that name, and "valor" seemed noble but mysterious. marstmanning
Uncle Abe This is memory of my Uncle. It would catch on and its easy to say. Im going to see Uncle Abe in concert tonight, do you want to come? Someone should use this name....  Tonya
Uncle Daddy And The Family Secret Sorry, this IS an existing band already, but it's just SUCH a cool name I had to send it in. pat
Uncle Fester and the Ale House Acid Boys I was at band practice and we couldn't come up with a band name. We were watching a television show called "Uncle Fester House of Blooze". It was and episode with lots of beer and booze. So we came up with the band name, but we didn't name ourselves that. Leo
Uncle Freds' Fish Bellys Its my modern revolutionary stab at the current worlds attempt at eating any part of any animal!!! But humorously enough the belly is the best part!! Chris Barnes
Uncle Fridge I was driving in the city one night and saw this shop that sells household appliances, called "Uncle Fridge" - and thought it would be a great name for a punk band! chocgirl
Uncle Moe's Family Feedbag Trivia to "The Simpsons" where Moe's changes his pub into a "family restaurant". Mike
Uncle Ralph This is reffering to Ralph Nader, who is from the Green party and ran for president. Gracie
Uncle Sam and the Domestic Policies Come ON! How would you not like this band? Jigga
Uncle Sam Eggs My friend said when she was little she learnt to spell the word 'because' with the mnemonic Betty Eats Cake And Uncle Sam Eggs and any part of that is cool. Also, my own mnemonic for remembering guitar strings: Egg B-Day (E,G,B,D,A,E) Dude,thatisawesome!
Uncle Sam's Freaky Trampoline Extravaganza The thinking behind this one will forever remain a mystery to me and my band. We were in the taxi home after a full days drinking and clubbing and the lead singer just said it. It was funny as funk at the time. Geordie Boy
Uncle Terwilliger And His Waltzing Bears The idea comes from a song called 'My Uncle Terwilliger Waltzes With Bears', in 'The Cat In The Hat Song Book' by Dr. Suess. All of that book's songs can now be found on YouTube, by the way. Regina Haniger
UnClear Vision My friends and i were playing football and i got hit and got knocked down and i had a unclear vision when i opened my eyes (this used to be my bands name) Jennifer
The Uncommon Houseflies I'm a music geek, and I came up with the name The Uncommon Houseflies about 20 years ago just because I thought it was ironic and funny (as opposed to "a common housefly"). When my now teen-age son and I decided to start a band together a couple of years ago, I remembered it and ... now it's a real band. Kevin Gibson
Unconventional Oven I'd use it if I were in a really big band touring under a pseudonym. Heh heh. H. Kreuger
Uncounted Distance thought it showed how long it takes to get to the top of the charts Cayna-Shae
Uncrowned King I was updating my sub profile, and was adding random oxy morons- I found this one and thought it sounded cool....it kinda sounds rebelious Britt
Undadoggie An "underdoggie" in our school was when a big kid would push one of the smaller kids on the swing so hard that their whole body went vertical. This name sounds like another rapper that somehow is related to Snoop Dog. Knumb Prodigy
Undead Underwear Me and my friend were really hyper when we were watching this show with a mummy. She said, "Why is he wearing a dress?" and somehow we got to the topic of "Is he wearing underwear?" I said, "Maybe he wears undead underwear." SpongeBob SquarePants's Lady Friend
Undecided Better for a rock band. There's these people I know that can not come up with a name for their band so one of my friends sais how about 'undecided' since that's what they are.  Destinee
Undefinable Pink Goo Substance What's in a normal Mickey d's chicken nugget. G

Under Construction Because we all need work on how to get better and how to make ourselves work out for the better. Faith

Under-rated well... me and my friend Christa were like people use Over rated far to much anymore... so what about we start saying underrated... so we were listening to the Misfists and we were like holy hoot that would be an awsome band name... for pritty much anyone.. hah  only.in.dreams
The Underbelly Sounds gross, but everyone talks about the seedy underbelly of a city or organization. That is: the really gritty, nasty parts that nobody goes except low-life politicians.  rocky
The Underdogs I was trying to think of a good name when someone turned on the radio and said "hey look your favourite football team are playing, why do you always have to support the underdogs?" and it just stuck FreedomCarrot
Underground Church Music I was in a youth group for my church and we were kinda mucking around playing our own kinda music and it just sounded like something you would hear at an underground nightclub or something. It would be good for an alternative band. woggirl
Underground Night Special I was out driving with my friends when we came across an all night diner. The diner was several feet lower than the actual land area. The food sucked but it would be a good band name. bEN
Underground Tibet It's from a misheard lyric. Awesomeness by accident. Greg G.

Unfazed Slackers You know how you tell a really lazy person that they need to get up and do something? they usually respond with a "yeah maybe later" or "nah im cool right here". they are unfazed by your desperate attempt to get them out of that chair. They are the unfazed slackers. Pigertaws@hotmail.com
Unfinished My friends and I came up with this name when we started our band. We kinds quit for 1 month, so we called it "Unfinished". broden cline
Unfinished Epic Fantasy I was looking in my literary text book and found an epic novel and fantasy. My band and I are all into fantasy, so epic was just really catchy. Since we're just kids, our lives are unfinished. Mr. M
The Unforgiven Glory Well, I do weird things when I'm bored, and I was bored so I decided to look through my iTunes and randomly piece together song titles until I came up with a cool band name. This was a mixture between several songs I can't remember.  Shiloh
Unforgiven Heros Kinda puts you in the mood that they did something wrong, but were heroes. danny
Unforgiven Sorrow  roseman13
Unfortunate Cookie I thought it was i cool name when i got a fortune cookie that said i would be damned for all eternity. Someone later told me that that was a name of a episode of Rockos Modern Life. Cory Metrick
Unfortunate Squirrel My friend Kelsey saw roadkill, nuff said DJ Sponeak
Ungawa Camel Toe I was remembering those old Tarzan movies, he would calm the savage beasts by yelling "UNGAWA" at them. He never had to yell at a camel so they must be kinda cool. Then I thought , Tarzan must of stubbed his toes a lot running around barefooed in the jungle and all I thought . The three concepts would be a cool band name, then I was wondered if Tarzan ever saw a camel toe, and if he did he would probably yell "UNGAWA"! badboybear
UnGr8ful The name of my friend's band.  Rachel
Unhindered By Talent My husband made this comment about a college band. I thought it would make a cool band name. Dorinda
The Unholy Priests Well, what's not cool about priests that aren't holy? I just think it sounds like a rebellious rock band. Tyler

The Uniboobs It's what you get if you have big boobs and you wear a sportsbra. obladi_oblada17@yahoo.com
The Unincorporated Town of Fishers A salute to the people that live in Fishers, Indiana, a suburb north of Indianapolis. They are unincorporated because there is no mayor and is independent of its bigger township. But the gullible out-of-towners will think this band was actually named after a town of fishermen. Indy
Uninhabited Playground I thought of this in grade 7 and I think it is cool because a playground is supposed to be a nice happy place for a child to have fun. But one with no one in it is actually kind of creepy. So an uninhabited playground is a little ironic even making a playground if theres not going to be anybody there. RJ
Unintentional Celebacy Well, I heard somone talking about that as their band name, and wow, It makes so much sense Tyler Desi
Unison Because when my guitar player and I play, we sound like we're in unison. eric williams
Unit 12 me and some friends were bazed out of our minds and found out that "unit 12" was the name of our subdivision and thought it sounded pretty cool PEFFREY
United Nobodys I like this name because it is exactly what my friends and I are. We are the least popular popular kids at our high school, but we always stick together. It sounds like it would be the name of a really obscure punk rock band. Alix
Universal Joint Sounds like some kinda marijuana reference. Way back in high school, I had to draw one of these in my Mechanical Drawing class. Mac Iowa
Universal Truth Its cool because it came from a cool person.(Its a Jack White Quote:"A universal truth,spoken through another persons lips.")And I came up with it because I needed a cool name for a band. Zeph
Unknown Artist It would always be cool to have a band called Unkown Artist and have a hit single called Unnamed CD. AM I RIGHT??? Then the songs could be Track 1,Track 2, etc.!!! CartKid180
Unknown Artist It would always be cool to have a band called Unknown Artist and have a hit single called Unnamed CD. AM I RIGHT??? CartKid180
