Best Rock Band Nameslukestheman4 By bands I mean rock, not stupid pop groups, and this is how cool the name is not how great the band is.
The Top TenXW
This band is my favorite band of all time they always cheer me up when I am down I love their name and all of their songs
This band has rocking band in the world
Please. This band gets too much attention already. Don't give them more because of their stupid and cheesey band name. - IronSabbathPriest
Best band name ever.V3 Comments
This list is biased. This shouldn't be at number two or even be in the top ten. Metallica is probably the most generic band name ever. It describes their music well but it isn't creative at all and when I heard about this band I was debating whether or not I should give it a chance because the band name is so stupid. They are a great band though, or at least were a great band.
This is my favorite band name so far
Guns n roses is a better name however u can't argue that Metallica are such a awesome band
Gods of Metal...name well suits..V4 Comments
The name is just so iconic in the fact that it's catchy it, and that the name is so contrary. It deserves to be number one.
They were bad and ugly guys but at the same time they were sensitive for example sweet child o mine and welcome to the jungle two opposite sides of human feelings guns symbolizes rudeness and roses romanticism
It's cool, like "Bad boys are so cute! ".
Best band name of all time, that's all u got to say, really it's just so coolV8 Comments
Most people would have a problem pronouncing this name, unlike Metallica. unique, no one beats it, it has the word "metal" in it.
Evanescence is the best band ever, and they easily have the coolest name.
They should definitely be on top---I don't have anything against Avenged Sevenfold, but come on, Evanescence is too awesome
Best name ever... Should easily be in the first position... Avenged Sevenfold is good but not as good as EVANESCENCE
Best band ever... I'm happy I love it very much... Hearing their song is worth it...
Did anyone know that it was originally Lincoln Park, but then the band got caught up in legal disputes, so they changed it to Linkin Park?
It's "Names" not sound and their name sucks, they make good music but don't comment it here because that's not what the list is about.
For me best forever Linkin Park makes the spark.V18 Comments
The Guitar /riffs and drum works add together perfectly to add a Deranged, Psychotic But Captivatingly encouraging feel good song, Disturbed =Confidence!
Sabbath and iron maiden best names everV1 Comment
Iron maiden was a torture device. Doesn't get much cooler than that. - IronSabbathPriest
Knowing the black history behind the name gives me chills
Sounds like a very good name for a heavy metal band - RorywilbrenV2 Comments
They actually thought about this one. unlike guns n' roses
A Megadeath is a unit that represents 1 million deaths from nuclear explosion, genius. Sorta makes slayer sound weak in comparison.
Slayer is a badass band name unlike Megadeth.. How is Death mega? - SabbathV1 Comment
I love how it's number 39, also, like the song. This is a name that is easily recognized and can be confusing. It was at first. Freddie was aware of what it sounded like but went with it anyway... For his flamboyant attitude.
It's the best name in the whole universe. Because it is the best band in the whole universe.V2 Comments
I'm currently forming a band, but the one thing we seem to be unable to do is name it. Whenever I think of a band, I like to use Led Zeppelin as the perfect example of a band name, because everything about it is perfect. You'd expect a band called Led Zeppelin to be hard rock, and they are the godfathers of hard rock. It rolls off the tongue well unlike Avenged Sevenfold or Panic! At the disco, it doesn't mean too much and isn't trying to be too deep like Pink Floyd is, both words work together and are pleasurable to hear unlike Metallica or Creedence Clearwater Revival. It does everything right and there isn't a thing you can say against it.
It sums up their sound- incredibly heavy but with enough light moments to get off the ground and fly in the sky. Plus the second most successful band ever (behind The Beatles) got their name from a saying meaning going to fail.
I think Led Zeppelin is one of the best band names ever! It should be far more up on this list!
The best band ever, the best name ever
Disturbed, really? Really? Nirvana is a great name because it evokes a sense of peace, something that the band and its frontman never had during its short life.
Nirvana is actually a term that means something along the lines of ""free from pain and suffering of the world""
Nivarna is a great name but why did they put this name at 6# on the worst band name lists I don't get it. But Nivarna is an awesome cool nameV2 Comments
Really creative name and even better music
How is this not in the top 10! The greatest band name out there!V1 Comment
Damn, naming your band after FBI's first Public Enemy No. 1 must have been the best band name idea ever. Honestly, I am surprised that the name hasn't made his way onto this list so far.V1 Comment
What is more ironic and meaningful than "Alice In Chains"?
