Yes! It is free for anyone to use.

Band names are often simple words or phrases like the Beatles, the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, and more. 

Sometimes they have funny stories behind them like Led Zeppelin naming their band after the idea that their band might never succeed, crashing like a lead balloon. 

The important thing to remember is that bands are remembered for their sound.

If you have a great sound, fans will likely remember your band name no matter what it is.

So try starting with a word that captures the spirit of your band.

Then plug that word into the generator to see what comes up!

Besides the ones mentioned in the section above, popular band names include:

  • Greenday
  • Coldplay
  • U2

Use the tool above to get even more band names!

But know that the tool uses words from several popular bands to generate potential names for your band.

So I don’t recommend putting a popular band’s name into the tool because then you might get some duplicate name ideas!

Try looking up some of your favorite music lyrics to see if a word sticks out to you there.

And if you’re still having trouble coming up with a word to put in the band name generator, try coming up with something your bandmates have in common.

For instance, if you’re all from a particular city, you could throw that city in the generator.

Don’t overthink it, and feel free to hit generate as many times as you need to find something you like!
