Alternative Band Name Generator

Generate a list of potential names for your alternative band!

Describe your band in one word.
Then enter it into the band name generator.


FAQ

Yes! It is free for anyone to use.

Alternative band names typically feature simple, common words like Sonic Youth, Pearl Jam, or Vampire Weekend.

They don’t really seem to have a unifying theme, so try coming up with a simple word that captures the heart of your band.

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

Popular alternative band names include:

  • My Morning Jacket
  • Green Day
  • Fleet Foxes

Use the tool above to get even more ideas of alternative band names!

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

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

Try looking up some of your favorite alternative 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 alternative 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!
