Names -> Cool Band Names -> M, Page 1

Whenever I hear a cool phrase somewhere, I like to exclaim "That would make a cool band name". This page is a list of such names.

I can not verify whether these names have been taken yet or not. If your band happens to already use one of these names sorry. If you want to use a name you see here, you'll need to verify it's not already in use.

Maggots are Faggots Not sure how i came up with it, just did. I mean a lot of bands have weird stupid names like superbus and takipakiwaki (my friends band).

Maidenhead Hunters I've been writing a lot of words and combination of words in search of a name for the band I've just got together. Madenhead is obvious and Headhunters is the play on words. This is not a name we'd use. Wes
The Main Exchange When my dad was stationed in Fort Hood, TX in the 70s, there were two Post Exchanges, or PX's. The big store was called the "main exchange"; the other was "the annex". I guess both of these names would be cool band names. military

I thought about that, and the multiple meanings that can be inferred with this one just made it seem a better choice for a band name. I intentionally mis-spell it as you will probably get sued if you use it, though. Andy
Major Lol This band name is cool because when I was growing up in Brooklyn in the late 1960s, boys my age would chill in the alleys. We would throw cans and laugh out loud! That is my inspiration for this band name. Also, LOL stands for Love Our Lives, Love Over Load, and my personal favorite, Lot of Love! hairy man with heart!
Major Package This is a name for a band that is either REALLY hardcore, or REALLY arrogant, or both! MO
Major Tom From the David Bowie song "Space Oddity". I think Peter Schilling sang about him too. They could cover either or both songs. Princess Ana

The Male Nymphomaniacs Nymphomania is usually associated with teenage girls, so teenage boys who have sex with many people would be the direct opposite. Rocky Rhodes

Mancake I was eating pancakes; and I thought if it was covered in beer, it would be a 'mancake'. Chazm
Manchowder Yet another word for sperm, Manchowder would be a great "double meaning" band name. Since I'm a lesbian, it's even more ironic if it were my band's name.  Vicaroo in Seattle
Mand Geval It means "basket case" Dutch. For you that don't know a basket case is, it's someone that suffers from stress or has all 4 limbs amputated. I say who cares what it means its really cool. Ryan and yo mama

Mango and Hulk Poop My sister and her husband and myself were talking after watching Daredevil, and started discussing the new Hulk movie that was going to come out (since it was another of those comic book movies). My sister was slicing mangos, and while we were eating them I started to talk about potential band names. My brother suggested Mango and Hulk Poop, since Mango and Hulk just didn't sound good enough. Loni
