Band Name Origins:

  • It's "Electromotive Force", not "English MFs". A matter of electrical engineering and physics, folks. Submitted by: My Girl Is Unbelievable!
  • That one dude is wrong. EMF stands for Epsom Mad Funkers, which was a nickname for the groupies of the band New Order. Although on the B-side of their hit single "Unbelievable" they suggested it might stand for Ecstacy (NOT Electric) MFs. Although I think the latter was a bit of a joke. Submitted by: Cat
