Names -> Cool Band Names -> U, Page 2

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.

Unpluged Meat I was visiting a friends house, where they were cooking a nice roast on a roatating... meat thing. Anyway, I noticed that the meat looked a little bit "Crispy," since I was just a visiter... what was I supose to do? I eventualy found whoever was in charge, and they told me to unplug it... my friends and I agreed "Unpluged Meat" would be a good band name. "Burt Meat" came in a close second. http://www.momish.com

The Urban Jungle I'm always hearing the inner city or some area of a large city being referred to as an "urban jungle". It would make a great band name. I'm kind of surprised some band hasn't used it yet. Edward
