Names -> Cool Band Names -> V, 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:
V.P.L. It stands for Visible Panty Line. Either it's really cool to see...or it's an awful thing to see. c-dub
Vacant Cross Jesus ain't there no more. He's gone up to Heaven. The same as Barren Cross, a Chistian band. TeePee
Vacuity Venue It means and empty place full of something. Bridget
Vaginal Claw It's a professional wrestling move. JeReMy
Vaginese Takeout My brother came up with this while we were coming up with funny band name ideas and he saw a Chinese takeout menu. JeReMy
Vagrant Souls Vagrant means wandering, and I just thought wandering souls is kind of truthful and sounds cool. Lizzzz
Valhalla By Night Norwegien Industrial Band/Punk-4 big Sweds and a bucksom blond. Just thought it would be fun. Valhalla(Norse Heaven) by night in other words dead by night's end. Gothy yet cool. Asgeirsson
The Valiant Seattle Me and my friends thought of this one evening, and we thought it sounded pretty vool (despite the fact that we're from Cornwall, England!) Megatron
Valkyr I got this off Max Payne and it's been my pseudonym ever since. It's good for a gothic band, I guess. The only problem is that it kinda underlines one person and not a band. If anyone can sort this problem out, then this should be a brilliant name sam
Valkyrie Project I have played this game since I was 10. This game rules So does the name! Naxeem
Valley of Bones Sounded cool enough for me. More like an excavation site thingy. Ian
The Valvetronix It's the name of an amplifier that I just bought. And it just sounds cool.  danny
Vampire Hillbillys A name I've seriously considered for a goth/rockabilly crossover a la the Cramps. Chuck Fensch
Vampire Mafia I got this idea from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Chirstmas. I was watching the part where Jack ask the vampires to change the baby doll's voice and they say "No problem". Sounded like some kind of mafia reply to me so thus Vampire Mafia. Hope P.
Vampires With Mullets Inspired by the film "The Lost Boys". One of my favorite movies. "Lost Boys" is too obvious a name, and I just like the sound of "VwM". Punkish, sorta Wolfie
The Vampirism Vendetta No idea how I came up with it. I like vampires an such... and interesting that a synonym for vendetta is "blood feud"... no? Pretty cool for punk rock/screamo, Atreyu-style. If not band name, could be a cool song name. Luke
Van Down By The River Taken from the near-classic SNL skits featuring Chris Farley's character, Matt Foley. I think it would make a cool name for a jazz combo. Kristina
The Van Houtens Named after Milhouse from The Simpsons. Also kind of like Van Halen. And everyone knows Van Halen rocks. Woo Hoo! Jon
VAN1T PL8  Luigi
Vandal Savage A DC Comics super villain. G
Vanilla Abstract like for maybe an all-white funk band. Dishwasher in a restaurant I used to work in complained one day that he couldn't find the "vanilla abstract". (he also once nearly died of "smoke insulation") wsn

Vapor Flood I thought of it while I was reading a story about the Mad Gasser of Montoon, a person who went around in the '40 murdering people by slipping a tube in their windows and flooding the room with gas.  freakflag.
Variable Resistor I reckon this is a cool name. One day me and my friend were trying to come up with cool band names and we were being stupid and saying all the stuff in our science class, Tripod, Retort Stand and then i said 'Variable Resistor' and then i said "Hey Variable Resistor...thats quite cool..." Hayley
A Variable Soul I was trying to think of the stupidest death metal sounding name (but Crooked X was already taken) and came up with it. The Alex Basso
Various Artists It would certainly confuse retailers of recordings wouldn't it? A name for my imaginary performance art/avant garde/electronica collective. Ray Kiraruta
Various Factors High School Biology teacher used to refer to "various factors" all the time, I figured they must have been a group or something Bob Gifford
The Vasilyevichs It sounds like a tongue twister. But it is Ivan the Terrible's last name. It sounds like a horror punk/goth punk band. I thought of it because of Oprige Nina. So I searched for Ivan the Terrible and then it came. Ivan IV Vasilyevich. I added (s) to make more, "Punk". stud
The Vast Majority For a band who is influenced by all music. TdubD
Vat And Mallory It is a spoonerism by which I recently called two of my friends, Matt and Valerie. Lauren Overstreet
The Vatican Leather System This was back in the 80s when I was In University. A bunch of us were shooting the breeze when one just said "The Vatican Leather System at the University..." I said, "The Vatican Leather System?" and he looked at me like I had ten heads. "No, I said 'they've added another system at the University...'." referring to the new computer system. Ever since, I've used that as the name of my favourite "band". John in Tronna
Vauxite I found this whilst looking through mineral names such as Platinum, etc. It's great! ~foz~

The Veeps There's Presidents of the United States of America. Why not a band for Vice-Presidents too? Veeps is short for Vice-Presidents, but not short for long. newrock
Vegan Slaughter House Would be a good punk/metal type name. Just came to me one day when i realised that vegetables grow, so therefore they must live, so even a Vegan diet still requires Slaughter Houses !  Rich
Vegan Vampires Those vampires in Twilight didn't go nearly far enough to avoid preying on humans. RevengeFromMars YouTube

The Veggieburgers There's this terrible all-guys band at our school called The Hambergers. They try to play other bands' songs, but it doesn't go well. This is our way of protesting. Great for an all-girl vegetarian band!!. We're not vegetarian though. Person
Vehicular Dahlmercide No current death metal band could match this fictitious Sweden-by-way-of Niles, Ohio band I just made up Jason Reeher
Velma Fetish 'cuz my cousin had a crush on Velma (from Scooby-Doo) when he was 3 and everyone else like Daphne. just another cutomer

The Velocity cuz it means speed BooBear
Velvet Crime Cross between velvet revolver and perfect crime a song by guns n' roses. sounds dangerous, perfect for a hair metal band Angus
Velvet Morning Grey Just the peaceful image. Princess Ana
The Velvet Odessas The Bee Gees released an album circa 1968 titled "Odessa," a 2-LP concept album. As originally released, the album cover had a beautiful red velveteen surface. If one can be found in good condition, it commands a princely sum in used record shops. So, finding a pristine "velvet Odessa" is a great thing for a record collector or Bee Gees fan. Martha Hankins
The Velvet Underpants Firstly, because The Velvet Underground is a pretty cool band name, and secondly, because it sounds both comfortable and uncomfortable simultaneously Ezio

Venus Flyswatter I tried to say 'Venus flytrap' and this is what came out. IHaveNoBrain
The Verbal Visions Of The 4 Wonders Of The World A bit long but a lot of people have told me that it is an amazing name Jessie James

Verdant Means covered with green growth. Sounds cool. []D[][V][]D
Verdi Wept Came to me in a dream. No, really! I like it because it's romantic and suggests the sacrilegious without BEING sacrilegious (shortest verse in the Bible is "Jesus wept"). Also, depending on the music, it could be the actual response Verdi would have. Ringo Zeitgeist
Verge It's pretty catchy. On the verge. hekifier
Verse's Vices It is like "Vice Versa" but switched around. If your verses have vices it is a good name. (Also if you have a band member named "Verse".) Stickman

Vertigo it's cool 'cause it means ,"to purposefully make ones self dizzy scrooge mCduck
Vertigo Swirl its cool...in a way that it portrays this really lost teenager who's in a total confusion on where to go after a broken relationship.. she forces herself to spin round and round..after which,she has this pulse beating in her brain telling her to stop,but she won't listen to her mind. valerie
Very Old Men In Tights What do the first letters in each word spell...? Sounds kinda sick too. dodge
Very Untalented Beatles Tribute Band They could play all original songs, and the ticketbuyers would think they are attempting to play The Beatles' hits. Songs include: "Let Me Be", "Ticket To Telluride", "She Loves Soup", and the soon to be famous "Yeasterday".  britrock

Victorious Secret I figure that it will attract teenage guys, i mean, what does it sound like? (victoria's secret) tigersblood
The Vietnamese Waltz I once saw Pamela Anderson interviewed on an episode of the David Letterman Show. She referred to having heard a performance of "The Vietnamese Waltz", before the two of them discussed the matter and concluded that what she meant was The Viennese Waltz. D. Melody Dole, MD
Viking Wizard Eyes On the inside of a Blink-182 album, it says "Viking Wizard Eyes, Wizard Full of Lies". I thought it would make an awesome band name. Dino

Vinegar Eruption Perverts Remember at every lame elementary or mid-school science science fair somebody made a garish neon green paper mache' vocano with baking soda in the "crater", then added vinegar and it spewed all over the place. Then ten years later you read in the newspaper that the "volcano geek" was arrested for some kind of perversion. The way it spewed always reminded me of something else, but I kept it to myself because it wasn't easy being a 19 year old 7th grader. Badboybear
