Did you know that there are 99,458,887,121 music bands in the world, which obviously reduces the possibility of giving you band names that are absolutely unused. Well, that ain't the exact number of music bands in the world - I just made it up, I admit. But if you and I came up with a hundred different names, we will probably end up discovering that out of those, at least 70 band names already exist in some corners of this whole wide world! Solution? Well, here's an alternative - just get playful with the right kind of words used in the world of rock and metal and you will discover one for your budding band. How do you think Linkin Park, Nirvana and Red Hot Chili Peppers came up with those names? They obviously did not have articles like this one to watch out for! And there it goes...you have the answer lying in your own question! Although that is my advice, I couldn't resist giving you a list of good band names that struck my mind when I got playful with words!

If you have a metal band, you must name it in dark or gothic style. Metal is a genre of music that needs to be a lot darker than rock. What's more important is promoting your metal music. You must name it in a way that identifies with the metal music, for all the metal lovers. A dark name like Iron Shrine or Mind Holocaust instantly gives us a picture of something darker, something that's more devilish and out of the human world!

I don't need to tell girls about how to name a girl band, do I? I'm pretty sure their minds work way differently than men and that they will come with the names that directly relate to their personalities. Including girly words will make good names for bands of girls. After all, a girl's mind is all about chocolate, hearts, angels and pink! No offense babes, but to be honest, everyone loves us for being 'us'!

Indie music bands are versatile and may choose from the above list of band names for indie music. Although here's a lil' advice - choose a name that isn't too dark and you are good to go!
I don't know if my readers would love to pick one from these lists of good band names, I only hope that they will get inspired from the above names, to be minimally hopeful! Almost all of these names have not been used, so if you choose any of these, let me know, so that I can sort another list of popular band names that are not taken. And most importantly, if you are a music maker, you must know how to promote your music, because that is the only key to get noticed in this world. If I don't stop here, I would continue writing till the end of the dusk! Here's wishing you and your band, tons of gigs, heaps of fans, millions of concerts and zillions of autograph seekers! Keep rockin' n rollin'! Peace, folks.
