Indie Rock Band Name Generator

Generate a list of potential names for your indie band!

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


Yes! It is free for anyone to use.

Indie rock is a big genre encompassing a lot of sounds. 

But its main theme is that it lacks mainstream appeal, hence the “independent” part of indie rock.  

Thus, I recommend trying to come 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 indie rock band names include:

  • The Strokes
  • The Hives
  • The Vines

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

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

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

Try looking up some of your favorite indie rock 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 indie rock 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!
