Names -> Cool Band Names -> W, 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.

W.C CANDY RANDOM BUT IT'S A PRETTY COOL BAND NAME DON'T U FINK ;) Tom Clark
Wabang Looking for something explosive? Short and to the point. Dave Todd
Wackiavelli it came from when Bush was in office and someone called them the Mayberry Machiavellis omar
The wacks museum My friend, Nat and I were bored on the bus so we came up with band names, I think we 20. Come on, any band with "the" in front of it is cool, and "wacks" is a play on "wax", so it'd be good for a rock band that are 'wacky'. Jasmin
The Wages Of Sin It's in the Bible, which says the wages of sin are death. A death metal band, of course. Odie Garfield
Waifer Thin A play on "Wafer Thin". Only it's about waifs, thin, shy, girl-like beauties that hardly said anything but could melt your heart with a gesture or facial expression. Lillian Gish, the actress, was known for this.  name
a waist of your time  you get the picture dan dietsch
Wait 'Til Friday It came by accident. But if you summarize it, it's WTF. I thought it was awesome. SGplayamax
Wait A Ho Chi Minute I love this phrase, it could make a good band name. This is from RATM's original version of "Testify", and pays tribute to Ho Chi Minh. He was also called "Uncle Ho", so that could also be a substitute. "Who are you gonna see tonight at the concert?" "Wait A Ho Chi Minute!" The Desert of the Real
Wait, What? A bit on the short-lived "Sports Show with Norm MacDonald" involving clips that make little to no sense, leading in MacDonald responding "wait, what?" JeReMy
Wakatipu Yeti Random idea, honestly!! Thought it sounded really cool. It's pronounced: WOK-A-TIP-OO. Nick
Wake Up Baby If you've ever had babies, then you know they wake you up every hour of the night. Opie M.
Wakeup Call Y'all better wake up and stop listening to bad music. Matthwala
Waldo Takes Fudge My friend, who is hardcore Christian, tries to avoid swearing whenever he can. So when he saw the letters WTF on his computer screen, he said "That must stand for ... Waldo ... Takes ... Fudge?" Meecrob
Walk Don't Walk I found a book with the name and thought that would be a wicked band name. It's cool because it sorta contradicts itself. The Mistro
Wall Of Sound OMJ! Just think about it! This is such a cool name dude!!!!! I came across this one when i was writing a song once! (Any more forward and you'll be collapsed by a wall of sound.) v12 MK-9
Wall Street Virus  Jake777
Walls Of Jarrow In the year 793, the Danes (Vikings) launched a mighty attack on the monestary of Lindisfarne in England. The year after the monestary of Jarrow in a massacre of blood and pain. Cool for a hatecore band. Thomas Smidt
Wally Goiter Wally Gator was a cartoon in the 60's, and time has most likley NOT been kind to our reptilian hero. Maybe they could go on the road with "Douche Turtle", (and Ozzy if he's up to it) princejellyfish
Walpurgis The original name of the Black Sabbath song "War Pigs". GlamRockNinjaLord
Walshart Poopercenter My brother and I came up with a bunch of nicknames for each other involving the word "shart", a term for a wet fart, including this. JeReMy
Walter Farts  Jetin
The Wambengers Wambengers, also known as phascogales, are a type of Australian marsupial mammal, noted for how its males live for a maximum of one year, always exhausting themselves to death in frantic mating frenzies. The very word "wambenger" could sound like it means one engaged in such a frenzy of sex, although I doubt if that is related to the word's origin. In any event, it could make a cool band name, with various possible wild, and / or lusty connotations. Regina Haniger
The Wands And The Wings From Fairly Oddparents. "When a mommy fairy and a daddy fairy love each other veeeeeeeeeery much..." Basically, fairy sex. Shippy Mandy
Wang's Cocktail Sauce It'd be funny to hear everyone say wang and (that other word) in the same sentence. cmdr PhipPhip
Wangleflesh It's those bags of meat that hang from the arms and legs of seniors that just quiver with the slightest movement. lionheart
Wangstrom Everyone's familiar with the euphemism for the penis. I was joking with a friend about his penis size, an Angstrom being a very small unit of measurement. It stuck. octane
The Wannabes I dont know how I came up with it it just came to me. there might me a band with this name on myspace but I came up with it first gigity
The Wanted It was the 60's, and most of the bands were wearing suits and ties. We, on the other hand, looked like a bunch of desperadoes, hence the name "The Wanted", just like the Wild West wanted posters.  G.D. Kilvington
The WAR Cry Of The Ostrich!™ Hehe, I got it by reading about an ostrich in the paper and my friend war talking about war cries like a total lame-oid and I was thinking "Well ostriches dont have a war cry, cause when they are attacked they just stick their heads into the ground" But it sounded really cool and it kindof stuck. :] ari☼
War Kittens It's from an old Capital One commercial from the mid-to-late-2000's. JeReMy
War Passengers Just like a war driver, only it's not the driver but the passengers. Jellybean
War Sharks because i like sharks and killing isis. and we are in a war with isis so war sharks... FlyingSeaTiger
The Wargackis I think it is cool name for a punk band. It is also the last name of one of my teachers. al
Warmness On Your Soul From one of A7X's albums, "Warmness On The Soul".  Dan
Warmouth This would be a cool Hardcore, or Metal band name! Warmouth is a type of fish that I catch a lot when Im fishing for Smallmouth Bass. sk8punk
Warning! This Band may contain Band Members I thought of this name because I was reading the label on a packet of nuts which read...Warning! this packet of nuts may contain nuts! LEM(LIVE EVERY MOMENT)
Warp Factor Nine Star Trek is always cool. so Warp Factor Nine is cool. Need I say more? Laszlo A. Voros
Warped Vinyl Because it is a record that is warped. Jesse Gennett
Warrior Dolls Just thought of it with my amazing brain. elise
Warriors of Valhalla It'd be a dope name for one of those Viking/Pirate/Fnatasy metal bands like 3 Inches of Blood or Dragonforce Ashlan
Wash A good name for a grunge band, relating to the way waves wash the shore off, kind of a relaxing scene. giles
Washed-Up Teen Idols Inspired by seeing that High School Musical guy Zac Efron on pretty much every magazine cover at the supermarket, and thinking, "Geez, I remember when the big heartthob named Zac was Zac Hanson...this dude's just gonna be another washed-up teen idol." And then my "heeyyy, that'd be an awesome band name!" reflex kicked in. There are an awful lot of washed-up teen idols out there, so why not? ;) Cat
The Washington Rockets On my school's D.C. trip my friend came up with this insane conspiracy theory saying the Washington monument was a rocketship and then bang the Washington Rockets. p.s. you can't use this because my band is currently using it. Just a little inspiration. Peace. lildrummerboyy
Waste of Space Has anyone ever told you and your friends you were wasting space with your instruments? Well, there you go. The Notorious N.c.D
Wasted Emotion Have you ever done everything to please a girl? Then they don't even like you? You've wasted so much emotion on her. albinoblacksheep
Wasted Horizon I came up with this out of nowhere. To me it represents good times with a loved one. Jizzman
Wasted Pretty I think it's pretty cool cause you can always reverse it and it'll be pretty wasted. My friends saw the name on a clothing tag on a blouse at a thrift shop back in high school. So that's our name reversed or not.  Wendy G.
Wasted Reprise I loooove Pearl Jam. So the other day I was reading through their song lyrics, and this was the title of a song. Just thought it was wicked. Zack
Wasted Talent I was on wikipedia, repeatably hitting the "Random Article" button, and I found this. we r B3AST
The Wasted Window Wipers If a window wiper is wasted can he still wipe windows? When this idea came accross my mind, I thought it'd be a good name for a band. Josh
Wasted Youth Skate shop in the movie "Grind". I thought it would be a cool band name. Amber
WasTed YouTh I saw a news paper story that title was wasted youth and it was about teens and how they act today so that way i thought it would be a cool band name. Jordan
Wasted Youth wasted youth was a skateshop in the movie "grind" not some stupid newspaper article Amber
Watching Paint Dry The name of a soulless Top 40 band in a story I wrote, it actually sounds like it could be a fun ironic band name. Like reverse psychology. Amanda
Watchtower I came up with it when I was playing Watchtower the game on Playstation. Its a game about a serial killer who walks around a house killing people with a pair of giant scissors. [Editor's note: You're thinking of "Clock Tower". "Watchtower" is the magazine of the Jehovah's Witnesses.] Justin
Water Jugs Actually, I thought of this name a long time ago because I had a crappy car that I had to constantly fill with water because the heads were blown. One night I came home and while pulling into my yard I saw all of these water jugs scattered everywhere. My husband got me a new car, but I always thought if I were to ever get into the industry, I would call my band Water Jugs because of this experience, though I know everyone will think I am making an ode to my breast implants. farrah
Water Knee,Seeing That Pavement Is Larking Nothing I woke up from a confused dream, with a cryptic or nonsensical phrase running throng my head.That phrase was "Water knee, seeing that pavement is larking nothing". The phrase might make a "cool band name", albeit it a long one. Sir Ron Norris
Water Over Road My band had pictures taken once and our drummer had stolen a road sign that said "Water Over Road". I happened to notice it in the pic, and ever sense then I thought it's be a killer name for a band. Amanda
Watford, Dogs And Snooker Some woman's list of hobbies on a game show I saw once. Thought it was funny and yet somehow terribly sad. Kelty
Watson 540 It's inscribed on a quite powerful pain killer. I require them before I can rock out properly. Jonny Toxik
The Watt Four My cool quartet name. crazydon
Wattsisname A play on the Who or the guess who haven't you ever wondered Whats His Name.  Jaystonet
The Watyoumacallits I think it is awesome because it came to me when I was trying to think of a band's name that sang this song on the radio. So, I just said to my friends that it was the "watyoumacallits'. They were like no chance is that a band name. I just had to say, "Good point." tbuck61391
Wave Of Anguish The title of a neat Lacuna Coil song I came across while browsing YouTube. The name has a heavy, intense feel to it, I think. Jonathan S.
The Waxwings 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
Waxy Srotem and the Fat Slappers Just kinda gross. Would be a good name for a swing band or rockabilly group. Bob at Lunch
The Way Their musical releases would be ubiquitous, as in, "I'd like to request that new song by The Way." "I love that new album, by the Way..." "The Way have a way with melodies...". Can also work if the band were named "George".  TBalone
Wayfarers Of Yesteryear Something I just made up on my own. I just like the way it sounds. I imagine they'd be a folk music or an adult contemporary band. With kind of an old fashioned sound. Edward
Wayne Newton's Email Address sounds funny. i thought anything w/ wayne newton would be funny, like Wayne Newon's Lucky Hat or I Ate Wayne Newton. microgal
The We It sounds like The The... G
We Are Holga. i think this could be a cool name, because holga photography is a type of photography where there are alot of light leaks, and mistakes in the picture.its an old tecnology that can be seen as "cool" or "interesting" to the right people. It could be a cool name because holga could mean "imperfect." Annielein
We Are The Enemy It sounds freekin' insane. It's one of the current names in the hat for my band. Haaayd
We Are The Music Makers I adore the original Willy Wonka movie, and since was not only said by Gene Wilder (I Think) but also mentioned music makers, I see it as an awesome band name. Elle

The We Hate Fred Durst Club I think it's funny...came from Ug.com. G

Weapon of Maths Construstion I was in a maths lesson, and we were joking around with compasses, drawing circles. Got stuck in my head. Kewl
Weaponized Gravy I was looking at an issue of Maxim once, and there was a puzzle where you had to guess which band names were real bands, & which were fake. Well, among weird band names like John Cougar Concentration Camp & Jesus Christ Superfly (both were real bands), I found this name, & it was a fake band. So I thought "Hey, this would be a cool (& weird) band name!" & picked this one. Dylan Baranski
Weapons Grade Noise Make noise, not war. Make sound, not weapons. I think it works. Dan from Ireland
Weapons of Ass Destruction AKA what I call beans, cheese and most Mexican food. IHaveNoBrain

Weatherly My friend Ben and I were contemplating names for our acoustic band. I was writing a list of names down. I asked him what it was doing outside 'weatherly'. I know that's not a word, but it works as a cool band name. Cole
Weathervane This is the name of a road in my neighborhood. enemy909
Wedgies Every time you start thinking about their music or have them on I-pod blasting your ear buds, you start wiggling your butt to the beat. Everyone in the mall thinks you have no underwear and you're trying to untuck a wedgie. badboybear
