Slayer is really only a good name because of the legacy of the band, otherwise it would be merely an ok name - not bad, but not particularly noteworthy. Celtic Frost is an awesome name. Cannibal Corpse is a shit name.

I think Cannibal Corpse is a clever name, personally. A lot moreso than if they had just called themselves Zombie. And I personally think the name Slayer is pretty badass, but that's just a personal preference I guess.

Oh god, good point, 'Zombie' wouldv been the worst name in the history of music!

Exodus seems pretty badass for some reason. I like Overkill as a band name too, even know it's obvious where they got it from. Suicidal Tendencies is a good one, as is Agnostic Front.

Don't forget ANAL CUNT

I think DeathInEye is brilliant. :p Yeah, I made it up to be a band name. I'm lame, I know.

no one is going to slap shit. the tank is the shit, fuck with one tank you get the whole army. anvil sucks, shits for pussys.

Best watch yoself Psythe, this muthafucka's got an army ;)

I'm not too big on Anvil, but I'll take them over the floods upon floods of generic deathcore bands anyday.

Tank: Frank the Tank? That is the stupidest fucking name i've ever heard. In fact I'm going to add it to the worlds worst band name thread as soon as I'm done here. *watches Tanks legs noodle after Oz slaps the piss out of him* BOO! Fucking joke.

Nov 6, 2009 2:05 PM ET #42 (permalink)

Haha! It's always a laugh on MU.

Another great band name? Celtic Frost. For a band that has no Celts it fits brilliantly and the name creates as good an atmosphere as the music.

Nov 6, 2009 10:37 PM ET #43 (permalink)

Amon Amarth

Nov 6, 2009 11:15 PM ET #44 (permalink)

Frank the Tank.

Fuck you.

Polkadot Cadaver is fucking hilarious. Especially if you picture Michael Jackson with measles.

Nov 7, 2009 3:07 AM ET #46 (permalink)

Frank the Tank is a fuckin stupid ass band name. Thats up there with Less Than Jake and Jimmy Eat World although i did find it humorous that Jimmy Eat World short spells J.E.W. lol

This thread is about band's with good names. Names that roll off the tongue but still sound brutally awesome. Nobody cares what your opinion is towards the band's music. Here are some of my choices, just to name a few.

All Shall Perish
All That Remains
Apocalyptica
Arch Enemy
As I Lay Dying
Avantasia
Bullet For My Valentine
Cradle of Filth
Five Finger Death Punch
Insomnium
Kamelot
Killswitch Engage
Lamb of God
Scar Symmetry
Sylosis
Threat Signal

Heaven Shall Burn
Draconian
Graveworm

I only like some of these groups' music. Being metal, I figured I could equate "best" names to "badass" names

Morbid Angel
Five Finger Death Punch
Lamb of God
Vader
Motorhead
Sepultura

Though not badass, I like the band name "Twisted Sister"... it just seems catchy to me.

Aw c'mon people, even if I didn't hate them, Five Finger Death Punch would still be a horrible name.

Vaginal Blood Fart- now there's a real band name.
