-IT'S A TRAP!! (i wanted to create a crazy punk rock synthpop band)
-Ginsu Thumbtack (Jawbreaker reference)
-Troubleman & No-No (Achewood reference)
-Lydia Sees Blue (this one's awful)

and a couple gems from the random band name generator:

-The Hitler's Erection Band
-Captain Whatthefuck

Post band name ideas... now!


Tweedle-Doom
Page-a-Day


Tweedle-Die & Tweelde-Doom? Or is that overkill?

Pagan-a-Day.

I quite like your name, Snail of Doom. It would make a great band name.

To whoever posted Lydiaseesblue, that totally reminds me of Alexisonfire.

Here are some ideas me and my friends are kicking around (so you can't use them even if you wanted to):

Something Shiny
Oh My God Penguins
Boot Camp of Futility
The Fabulous Puppy Kickers
The Wild Maggots
The Influenzas
The Evil Villains
The Canned Beans
The Groovy Sockpuppets
Cylindricious (we're all pringles addicts... delicious and in a cylinder)
Jigsaw Sabotage
A Hound, A Boar And That Crazy Fox (apparently, I'm the crazy fox of the three of us)
Funderbunk And The Cower Hours
Film Jellyfish (Instant Classic reference)
Itsdeadletseatit
Mudfight in the Sand Castle
Banana Shitbox

EDIT: Any comments or 'that one's the best' will be appreciated.

How about Charlie Loves Cheesy Poofs.

Or else the very simple but very entertaining: Stroke My Barse.


the first was a terrible punk band at my college that used South Park samples. the other was a black-metal/burlesque band (I know, I know!) from belfast.

Names in my book of names:

...And the Perishing of Stars
Alt + 666

Cities Under Nocturnal Threat
Crowley & the Moonchildren

Six Hundred and Sixty Six Tortured Decibels
Skullfucker 2012
Splatterfunk *
Terminal Breath
Traumavision
Unleash the Weasels
Witchstorm
Yes, I Am Talking About Rat War
Zyklon-A+



No-one can ever, ever, ever use Alt + 666. They're one of my greatest inventions. The most blasphemously rad Satanic Geeks in all of SoCal, with their red-tinted librarian glasses and their wanton iPod mini sacrifice. Also, Bible Black is so not taken from the hentai series. Though I'd never actually TELL the fans that.

Oh, you can also never use 'From Thee Deepwoode Ycomen'. That's my planned medieval rock band that sings only in heavily accented Middle English. Keep off Hitler and the Fuhrerettes as well. That's me in Liederhosen and an all-girl backing band in kinky SS uniforms. We'll play raucous cabaret punk and go on tour with Hanzel und Gretyl. And you really can't use Bastard Sword, because it's the best untaken metal band name on the planet.

'Cities Under Nocturnal Threat' would only exist so I could snigger when people abbreviated the name (CUNT).

Zyklon-A+ (smarter than Zyklon-B) is just silly.

I don't check these things up a lot, btw, so some of these probably already exist. If anyone gets any of the stupider references, much love.

*This really needs to be a genre, actually. I see a four man band: drums, bass, sax, vocals and chainsaw. Vocals a mix of Tom Waits most ridiculous era and Cannibal Corpse. Lots of B-Movie samples.

Snail of Doom: I agree with TrueNeutral that your username would make a great bandname. Looking at your ideas, maybe "The Post Nobleman" should become "The Noble Postman"? Also, I like "Don't Shoot"

TrueNeutral: Regarding "The Wild Maggots", I think the word "wild" is a little redundant, as is "evil" in "The Evil Villains". But cheer up! I absolutely love "Jigsaw Sabotage" and you should keep it that way! It gave me thought of someone appearing out of nowhere and wrecking someone else's puzzle with a joyfully insane expression on their face. :) Mmmm...
Petty destruction
(Ooh! Maybe that ^ could be a band name!)

Out of Khar's I like:
Amateur Dentistry
Hitler & the Fuhrerettes
Mitternacht
Oceanspawn
Sea Wolf
and Traumavision
Also, "Terminal Breath" reminds me of Monty Python (that right? :) Probably not)  and would you consider "Rats With Wings" rather than "Infected Pigeon"?

@TrueNeutral: Actually, the addition of Tweedle-Die seems to quite work well. My faves out of your are:

Oh My God Penguins
Cylindricious
Jigsaw Sabotage
and Itsdeadletseatit

@zutonna: The Post Noblemen was supposed to be a pun on "Post No Bills", but The Noble Postman sounds good too. "Don't Shoot" is one of my faves as well

@both: Thank you both for the screenname appreciation. I also think it'd be a snazzy band name, which is why I use it for my solo techno compilations

More names from me:

Driedel and Spindle
The Cow Tongue Soup
We Do Weddings, Birthdays and Bar Mitzvahs (it seems like I'm on some Jewish reference kick)
Read Our Instructions
The Off-Sides
Node
The Crazy 8
Lampshade Dancers

Doze Code (see if you can guess how I thought that up)

If we're doing it on songs by awesome bands:

Evil Devolution
Neon Knights
Gates of Urizen
Erotomania
Panic Attack
The Great Deceiver(s)
Cosmik Debris
Don't Eat the Yellow Snow
Wrathchild
Aces High
Hallowed Be Thy Name
House Full of Bullets
The Extremist(s)
The Hellion(s)
Moonchild(ren)
Disciples of the Watch
Dopamine

Moonchildren would have to be a goth metal band a la Type O Negative. And Evil Devolution is just too cool of a name not to be mentioned. I suppose it'd be doom, possibly death or grindcore.

My band has been trying for a while to come up with names. There's three of us. Without telling them what I was planning I asked from a random work from the other two. The name I came up with is Autumn Goat Dynasty, such an awesome name but they don't like it. A guy at my work knew a band called Free Beer so they people came to see them thinking they'd be getting beer that they didnt have to pay for, alas no, it was the band instead. One of my bros friends came up with The Big Glove so their intro would be: please give a big hand for the big glove.

My favourite one that's been posted is "The Noble Postman", which I just love.
My band is called Soweto, which I think is a pretty neat name (it's a township in South Africa, with really bad poverty, if you don't know). But it contains the words "so wet" so it makes us sound a bit, well, wet. Also, a really obscure band exists with the same name (albeit with capital letters throughout). We still use the name though.
I also like the names:
The War Against Terrorism, TWAT
CIA, Criminals In Action (taken from a political rap song featuring Zack de la Rocha)
Pete Turnip Townshend (Pete "Turnip" Townshend was a peer of historic agriculturist Jethro Tull, after whom the famous prog rock band are named)

The Rubber Band

^ownage
That's an actual band.  They sound kinda like the stuff from O Brother, Where Art Thou?

I lol'd at a few of the band names listed here.  Grr itsabeer is a winner.

The only one I can come up with that's any good is "The Letter Six", with their first album being "[self-titled album]".  That, or however you'd spell Ah-Shits in german.  Then you could go "AHH, SHITS" and then claim you were just talking about a German band.

I am totally making one of those the title of the nice little closing instrumental for Death Throes - Death Throes Can Seriously Harm You and Others Around You. This is because it has basically struck me that not even 'Eye Socket Sodomy' is really THAT offensive. Though 'Alternative Penetration' is pretty bad when you think about it, and I'll probably have grossed out if I manage to record a version of 'Grenade Suppository' and get it on there.

Those are pretty good names.  It was a joke the me and a friend had once while we were drinking because he talked about a bukkake.  I really didn't mean to piss you off I more thought it was funny because it was a totally random name.

Some of those names are pretty catchy though.

And my "band" that had that name became a serious band so you know I'm glad that I came up with it because it started a band I enjoy.

the imaginary em0 band i invented is called "The Bleeding Ashes of My Dead And Forgotten Summer".

their #1 single is "Yes Mom, This Razor Is For Shaving".

I've always thought a cool/annoying name for a band would be Selftitled. their 3 albums would be called Untitled, Debut Album, and Selftitled, in that order, just so people would get really confused.

'And here's the first single from Selftitled's debut album, Untitled....'


um... yeah. I get really bored at work.

I came up with this one after drawing a cartoony looking Cthulu during history class (I hate history class I already know everything the guy tells me).

Creatures That Howl Underneath Locked Universes (abbreviated CTHULU)

There's probably better words I can use, but I couldn't come up with them soon enough because english isn't my first language.

The problem there is that you've spelt Cthulhu wrong. Nice try though.


Yeah, I noticed that after I did a google search for pictures.

Creatures That Howl Underneath Locked, Hateful Universes?

Dr. Frank FTW

EDIT 2: Electric Boogaloo

Also, if it wasnt already a band (although I've only been able to find one song by them ever) I would totally use the name Well Hung Monks

EDIT: Any comments or 'that one's the best' will be appreciated.


I think that just took the cake....


I've heard some bad ones in my time, which include my own cheesy band names.  unless it's a reference or completely genious using "the 'any plural noun'" is really crap.  and over used, but of course, isnt that the point?

how about...The Dirty Diapers?  could be good for some sort of new wave neo-grunge band....

or flaming urination?  I could see myself going to a spazcore show of a  band named something like that.

I hate to drag up an old thread like I am, but I had a small idea and I can't tell if it's bad or already in use:
The Desperate But Spoken For

or, perhaps it would make a better album title if you removed the "The"
Desperate but Spoken For
?

Just a thought.

Me and my mates are meeting up over the summer to try and put a guitar/bass/piano/trumpet/sax spin on many classics. One thing we have planned is to try and recreate Kraftwerk's Autobahn using only live instruments. A harmonica works well for making a synth-style voice. Anyway we are trying to give ourselves a name. Ideas thus far:

I've Got A Baguette In One Hand And A Carrot Cake In The Other (too long, but based on a true event)
The Sociable Twats (Has a great backstory but has a rude word)
Don't Spill Beer (sign with massive font from local pub)
The Infernal Machine (probably going with this one; it also has a backstory, albeit an A Level History oriented one)
The Crazy Bastards (too rude again)
Timmy The Fists And His Jazz Gentlemen (my friend Tim has massive fists, 'nuff said)

We want some sort of backstory, All the best names have backstories.

Don't steal pls :) kthxbye
