:devil: I like The name Metallica, thats just a sweet name for a band . Black Sabbath is also a very metal name which is very cool haha. Pantera is also one of my favorite names its awesome because it fits the type of music they play and how they play it. That also goes for Metallica and Black Sabbath

August Burns Red. Just because of the story behind the band name!! haha! :)

KISS because it just works. It's very feminine but not too much.

Guns n' Roses because it is dangerous and beautiful. One of the best band names there is, marketing wise.

AC/DC because it characterises the bands music extraordinarily well.

06-05-2009, 08:56 AM
Black Label Society, Blue Oyster Cult, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Sex Pistols, Van Halen (i'd kill for that name), Metallica, Pearl Jam, Def Leppard

The Band and The Who are pretty good. When my dad saw Bob Dylan back in '05 it was 'Bob Dylan & His Band' which I though was genius.

06-06-2009, 06:16 AM
I think my perception of good and bad band names is sometimes - or often - biased by whether I like their music, lyrical content, image (i.e., whether they're annoying teeny-bopping pop stars or whatever), etc., and I guess I haven't really thought about this before. Browsing through my MP3 folder, though, I'd have to go with Unwritten Law and New Radicals.

I don't know if this is an actual band, but the name 'Special Guest' is really cool imo.

Think about it, whenever there's a bill for a gig, it always has the main band with 'Featuring special guest!' on it.

I think Circa Survive is a good band name. Say it aloud. It's just sort of cool, phonetically.

There's a Melbourne band called House Vs. Hurricane, which I think is a pretty cool name.

Also, Led Zeppelin. Classic and nonsensical.

The Tragically Hip - very witty, cool, unique name in my opinion. I'd love to have thought up that name first.


Incubus - not because it sounds cool, but because when I bought tickets for my girlfriend and I, her mom said, "My goodness! That's a demon that has sex with girls at night!" and... yeah...


Sublime - if anyone knows the definition, that's a cool name. Looks cool and sounds cool on top of it.

Iron Maiden - I mean, who wouldn't want to be named after a torture device!?
Incubus - Man that just sounds kick ass.
Led Zeppelin - Incase of mispronounciation they changed it from Lead Zeppelin to Led Zeppelin because apparently they were going to fall like a lead zeppelin...which can actually work as proven on Mythbusters =P.
Escape the Fate - That just sounds awesome

Only one of those bands barely classify as metal so I am not sure what you are talking about but I think;

In Flames
Pantera
Killswitch Engage
Cannibal Corpse
The Last Shadow Puppets
Airbourne
and Black Tide

are all awesome band names, some because they are really recognisable and catchy and others because it is a wicked cool combination of words, plus Panther in Spanish is pretty imaginative for a metal band.
