Cool band names examples
Here are some examples on cool band names from real life:
REM, ACDC and ABBA are all pretty cool names for a band. All the bands used an acronym to make their name. REM is a acronym
for "Rapid Eye Movement". It was was generated by a random look up in a dictionary.
AC/DC is a acronym from science, alternating current/direct current. AC/DC is also slang for bisexual, but the according
to ACDC they apparently didn't know that, when they created the name. AC/DC is definitely a cool rock name.
ABBA used the initials of the band members. And they're were pretty lucky with the ring of that.
Band names and every day things
U2 and UB40 are unemployment forms. The rock band U2 and pop orchestra UB40 both made their band names from these forms.
Many musicians strives to make money early in their carrier, and it quite normal for rock band members to be in contact
with social security systems in their home countries.
Also a lot of examples of of great band names inspired from animals, like The Animals themselves. ;) Other examples is The
Yardbirds, The White Snakes and The Black Crows. Pretty obvious using cool animals for naming the band.
Inspiration from art
Many bands has found ideas and inspiration in art. It could be from movies, books , cartoons, paintings, theaters etc.
A couple of examples of cool examples is Coldplay and Collective Soul. Both names are created from books. Coldplay is from
a collection of poems and Collective soul is the name of a novel.
A random generator can not, by the very definition of
random, make cool band names with hidden meanings. At least no by design. But with the help of random and randomness
it sure can make both casual and cool rock band names by accident.
As history also shows many cool and great band names has been created by accident.
