Names -> Cool Band Names -> W, 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.

Wee Beasties I HEARD IT IN SCIENCE CLASS IT'S A SMALL LIVING CELL I THINK, I JUST THINK IT SOUNDS COOL JARED
Weeble Renegade Conspiracy Why weren't there any "bad boy" or misfit weeble characters? What did they do to them? Where did they go? Were they hidden away by a sinister government utopian conspiracy? Who is to be held accountable for this travesty? What abouth their rights? this would be a cool band name in their honor, we know they are out there somewhere. badboybear
The Weeble-Wobles "Weeble-woble" is so fun to say, am i right? YO
Weebletoss Got the name of our band from a boardgame and when the drummer was asked how we got the name on a TV interview, he couldn't remember the name of the real boardgame so he made this up. I thought it would be a good band name. Weedmonkey
Weedon Idnosteen King Badges Even though they are big ego hams and bogart the stage until they are pelted with pottery shards. They wear sombreros and nike guaraches and Eddie Baur serapis, and drink Cabo Wabo tequila. They are considered a real treasure in the Sierra Madres, and no, they are not a risk to national security, so they don't need no steeking badges. badboybear
The Weenie Winks You know those things you stick in the ends of hot dogs to make them look like, um, thingies? Well, they were responsible for this. nasty
Weeping Phoenix I wuz jus thinkin, if u ever read a magazine article about your band, it would be kewl if they said, " 'Bob', who is the lead guitarist of his band _________,......." I would want my name to be Weeping Phoenix for some reason.... the first song would be..... "Emptyness" or something that has to do with llamas! ~!!!*!!!~
Wee~~! It's like, the noise you make when you ride a roller coaster, or go down a slide! Just with the cool tilde character and an exclamation mark! Lander
wefalloutlikekids i just thought it was cool. Matt
Weird Ed My wife has a distant cousin named Ed who's a little eccentric. When he shows up at family reunions, we always say, "Weird Ed is here." Rob
Weird Precipitation A guy at work was said he got this weird precipitation in a flask. What a cool band name, I thought. coconut laden spode
Welcome to Wednesday Typical kind of Emo band name. I was listening to Taking Back Sunday and liked the idea of 'Owning' a day. To welcome someone to something kind of implies ownership and I am a fan of alliteration in names so pondered it a bit and came up with this! KC
Welding Goats This would be a cool Punk name we were going to use it for an Alternative band but then we broke up and it never happened. So i like thrash anyway. I got this name from my home town in Smyer Tx. some guy made sign on his barn on the out skirt of town that said Welding Goats meaning he welds and he has goats. I thought it was Catchy and would like to see some one use it Bradlee Jeffreys www.geocities.com/renderedmindset
Welfare Willie and the Government Cheese Why is it cool? Read it. It's a hobo on food stamps. Hobo Bob
The Well Hung-arians This was going to be my friends bands name at college, then he shot it down...the best this is 2 of the guys in the band were Indian and they could have pulled it off well. Ben
Well Hungarians I read about this band years ago and the name has never left me. It's just too funny and to the point to not post t it here. Makes me happy to say it and hear it. I don''t even know who they are or where or what they played but they had a great band name. ames
Well of souls Well, this might be more of an album name. But it still sounds kind of cool. I was looking at art work and there was this one called "dream wee of souls." But I just made it well of souls. jobe
The Well-Deserved Echo It came to me in a dream! Seriously, in this dream green day used to be called this. It sounds like their music deserves to be heard again. Az
Wes Filling Okay, still another name based the show "Angel". A combo of Wesley Wyndam-Price and Miller Lite beer. And since he plays a bitter man prone to drinking... angel
West Nile I live in Louisville Kentucky. We had a west nile disease crisis earlyer this year. Well lets see you compete with a band name like anthrax Bob the destroyer
The Westside Vigilanties i was just sitting on my computer and was thinking of a cool band name. but, after i looked in the dictionary, the westside vigilanties means people on the west coast that help stop crime. i dont want to help stop it.  josh sanchez
Wet Biscuit McGee Stolen from Whose Line is it Anyway? and a "game" they play called Greatest Hits. Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie introduce a CD collection and Wayne Brady has to make up songs in the style of their choosing. This one came about when Colin asked Wayne to sing in the style of a Scottish blues singer named Wet Biscuit McGee. I just thought it would make a cool band name... Kristina
Wet Cat One time my friend and I decided to give her cat a bath...big mess...don't try it unless your cat is half dead.  Betsy
Wet Dog Good Tuna Won a contest years ago with the catchy phrase wearling levis is better then smelling a wet dog after eating a good tuna fish sandwich Paul Phillips

The Whammy Bards This band should probably cut back on the tremolo. RevengeFromMars YouTube
The What Kind of like a parody to the old band The Who i dont know i think its pritty cool. Any way no help from Vampire Chick on this all my own : ) Fairy Chick
What A Relief, Michigan! A misnomer for Watervliet, Michigan. Band leader Paul Shaffer said it that way on the old "Late Night with David Letterman" while Dave was on the phone with a viewer from that town. fatboy

What Bird? A house down my street used to have a bird-table in the front garden which was decorated with a guilty-looking cartoon cat and this motto.  Ethelbroth The Unsteady
What Lies Beneath The Tide A metal band from RI. Not sure how it came to be but now they are on Torque records, I thought it was unique. Shane
What Now I thought of it when we couldnt really think of a band name, my guitar player came in with a list of stupid names for us and all I could say was "What Now" the name stuck for a little while then we changed it Rob
What? When someone comes up to you and asks you your bands name, you say "What?" They'll keep asking you until you finally have to finally explain that your band name is called What. rock man
Whatchu Talking 'Bout Willis McGahee I came up with this last year. I was watching World's Dumbest and switching to the Thursday Night game between the Broncos and Jets. Todd Bridges, who played Willis on Diff'rent Strokes, is on World's Dumbest and NFL running back Willis McGahee plays for the Broncos. So I combined the most famous line from Diff'rent Strokes (which was about Bridges' character) and the NFL player JeReMy
Whatev 1982 It's the name of one of our bands albums. Great album. PDizze

When Confidence Fails I was in school, and my teacher said in college that sometimes, confidence fails.  j-hole
When Mr. Rogers Breaks Down Could have a cool picture of Mr. Rogers with an uzi. a-conceredcitezen
When Rendered Unconscious Makes me think back to when I was rendered unconscious. DAVID LEWIS
When Rivers Run Red It's just awesome to see rivers turn to blood on movies, and it's catchy! India
Where's Keon? I thought of this because one of my friends names is Keon. One day, I didn't know where he was and I said this and I thought it sounded kinda cool. JB
Where's Wall-E It's an online parody of Where's Waldo?, which is known as "Where's Wally?" in every country except for the United States and Canada, where, instead of finding the title red and white striped shirted Waldo/Wally among people, you tried to find the title character from the 2008 movie WALL-E among other fictional robots (including another from that movie). I found out about it on accident a few weeks ago. JeReMy
Whining Mop Demon It's cool, because it's cool. I got it from an ex of mine that always complained and had hair with a mop-like texture. Me
The Whip Cream Bikinis From the Movie "Varsity Blues," I thought it would be hilarious for an all-girls group (or guys for that matter! Like the Bare Naked Ladies!) Lil' One
Whiplash I think it's cool because when your in a band, you can rock the people so hard that you'll give them "Whiplash". I was walking outside with my friends and I was writing songs and trying to think of a band name for us to use, and I came up with Whiplash. It just popped into my head. From now on my all girl band is called Whiplash. Danielle
Whipped Scream This band name has sentimental value becase it resembles the term "whipped cream", but give the reason why the screaming is occuring. Ben (crime-dog)
The Whipping Wimples Read a book where it was mentioned (wimple) and looked it up, great female band name - wimple is a nun's hat. Geek
Whir Perfect name for a Brit-pop band. Short, easy to remember, describes a sound, and sounds even cooler when said in a British accent. Olvan The Terrible
Whirlpool and the Washing Machines Punk cover band that does songs such as "A Little Bit Of Soap" and "Dirty Laundry. JBL
Whiskey 'n' Stir I was thumbing through a bartender's guide book and there it was...right there in the mixing instructions (just add whiskey and stir)! Lucinda May Young
Whiskey Dick we've all experienced it Brick House
Whiskey MacStagger and the Wandering Vomits About 7 years back suring a drinking and music session in an old house in Notting Hill London a chef from Donegal came up with this as the proposed name for our musical ensemble. At a time when Irish theme pubs and bands were popping up like mushrooms we felt we had a future. That was as far as it went.... Fergie MC
Whispered Confessions  LOLLAPALUZA
The White Collar Criminals Just kinda sounds cool. You can just imagine some guy in a suit and tie embezzling millions from some corporation. The band would have to dress in button-down long-sleeve shirts, slacks, and ties for it to have full effect, though. Brandon
White Death My sis and I came up with this name. We thought it would be cool for a heavy metal band or something. Rachel
White Evergreens Western Washington (the state) hardly get's any snow in winter, but when it does, it's usually pretty deep. Since most trees are evergreen, everything is white, except for the green under the snow on the tree branches. Hence "White Evergreens"  kinia
White Frost   Drew
White Horizon My friend and I were at the train station on the way to London for a school trip. The bridge at the station had white walls. She commented that I was tall, then I said she was looking at a White Horizon (staring at the wall)! The next day we decided it would be a cool band name. Kathryn
White Nitrogen I just came to me in chemistry one day. another good one is black oxygen! jim jackson
White Noise I read that white noise is like when you tune a radio between 2 stations, and doesn't it just suit a punk rock band?!?!? Billybob
White noise It just sounded really cool when I was learning guitar and it also sounds gud when its played in a song, so I thought it'd make a good band name. Chris Barnes
White Noise When my brother was forming an amateur band, he asked me for a name. I suggested White Noise, but he thought that sucked and decided on Fat Kids Chasin' Cars. DalekTek790
White Rose Sounds like a sweet punk band! Ian
White Trash I got the name from a line from "Joe Dirt". I think it'd be the perfect name for a rock band. Stockton
White Whine An accidental pun on "white wine" I made when writing "white wine". Could be a band whose music is made of whining and white noise. lexie
White-Out My 10-year-old sister always includes me in her pretend-band games. When she taped a supposedly empty white-out bottle to a stick for her microphone, it opened and white-out ran down her arm... Howdy
WhiteFoot A friend was telling me how white my feet were compared to my legs. And since my band was being talked about at the current moment, he decided on the name whiteFoot.  Skadogg33
Whitelie Um, pretty self explanatory. White lie, which means a lie to make someone feel better, so it isn't really bad. so: Whitelie Stephen
Who Be This Band? WBTB for short. Got it from a song by Relient K...line was, "Who be this band Relient K?" I just thought 'Who be this band' sounds cool. therealdeepblue
Who Dropped the Mayonaise Spoon? It would really be a better CD title, but its all the same. This came from Gus Carlson whilst at Camp Calumet in New Hampshire. We where having the boys senior end BBQ, and Gus noted, to some dismay, that the mayo spoon laid in a pile of leaves. "Who dropped the mayonaise spoon!?" he exclaimed. Soon after, he said "whoa, that would make a great band name, or even a CD title. It would have that spoon in a big pile of leaves and shit and it will be called 'Who Dropped the Mayonaise Spoon!'" Now i, being easily amused, thought this was hilarious and filed it away in my mind for later refrence aka here. Eric Thomas
Who Moved the Ground? If you have ever found yourself floating, you will know what it's like to suddenly realise where you are. Simon Fathers
Who Needs Shoes Name of my old band then we switched. I thought it was a excellent name myself, too bad I was the only one who seemed to think that. JeNNiE
The Whole Posse This is something my p.e. teacher screamed out one day when a group of boys were to be punished: "All of you! To the office! THE WHOLE POSSE!" Whenever somebody says it, the boys start laughing, as my p.e. teacher is old and says "UH" alot. he sounded dorky, Emfan
Wholesale Price As a kid I always hated going to those types of warehouse type stores that sold stuff at wholesale prices. This is my tribute to them. Deathawk
Whoops! There Goes Mr. Jelly It's a phrase commonly used by the (Insane) Bursar in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. I just think it sounds good for a kind of insane 'alternative' band Random
The Whore Of Babylon It's in the Bible. Translated into modern English, it means the city of Babylon. Plus, it's just one of those cases of "means one thing, sounds like something else". Christian punk band indefinite.  phamilto
Whorible I overheard someone saying something about looking 'horrible'. The way it sounded, I heard "whore-ible", so I put it together and got this! yenyo
Whose Norm(!) I was working for a guy named Norm. But the name implies that we weren't "the norm", since whose norm are we talking about? No idea about the exclamation point in parentheses. Rico
Why Bother? I think that's a perfect name for a EMO band. I came up with it while trying to figure out a display name for a website. v.i.c.t.o.r
Wicked Dreams Taken from a song I wrote about the wierd dreams/nightmares I am always having. The name sounds alot like my bands music...mysterious, sexy, and forbidden. Phil Escobedo

Wicked Lizard You know the serpent from the Garden of Eden? Well, it says that after it did its evil deed, God took away its legs (making him forever a shamefull creature to slither on his belly), implying that beforehand he was, in fact, a wicked lizard. Nardicus
Wicked Rev My mother made it up because "wicked" means "really" and the Doozers from Fraggle Rock said "rev" to mean cool. So "wicked rev" is way cool or really cool. pack
Wicked Sick Well if your not from Ma, and you visit there, you'll notice we all say "thats wicked cool" or "thats wicked nice" its kind of like another term for really for us. So mass people would know that. and others would just think wicked sick....like evily sick or something N I X
