Names -> Cool Band Names -> M, Page 2

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.

MaNiC ReLaPsE I was bored and this name just popped into my head. It sounds so kickass. I think it means worsening into a state of mental or physical hyperactivity. Sounds like some sort or metal or rock band. I'm probably going to use it,though... CreativeIndifference
Manic! At Monte Cristo Kinda like "Panic! At the Disco" meants The Count of Monte Cristo. Thought of it in English class when we were forced to watch the movie!  Kai
Manifest Destiny its cool because manifest means obvious, and we all know what destiny is. So if the band is good enough, its obvious what their destiny is right? I cam up with this in History class. T'was actually my band's name, but our band broke up so ya like it, have it.  LiLAnniE
Manna Machine Heard the "manna machine" was a concept to explain how Israelites had bread from heaven for 40 years...thought it was a cool band name. Mike Lydic

Marcusson Right From the Twilight Zone episode, People are Alike. Sam says that Marcusson is right. And he is. RIssY

Mark On The Grave Scene It's cool because it's a really dark name, and it has a certain ring to it. The lead singer's name is actually Mark, so that's also pretty cool. ...
Marketable Hell Rubies My friend and I were on this website where you type in someone's name and it would scramble the letters and give you what else the name can spell. Well, she put in her crush's name and this is what came out. A cookie for anyone who can tell me her crush's name. Blurple

Mary Poppins Pimps Why is it cool???..Just read it!! LOL Smitty

Mashed Potatoes it's something you wouldn't normally expect it for a band name. It's different, besides, who doesn't love mashed potatoes? mmm..so tastey! i don't remember
Masochistic Muze I came up with this title while thinking of what most bands get their inspiration or muze is. Most bands sing about harming themselves wich is masochistic, hence Masochistic Muze. Patrick Showalter

The Master Baiters I like it 'cause it sounds cool. I heard a joke with this as the punchline. Why not a band name? Mo

Master of Puppies It's like the song Master of Puppets, but it's not. JeReMy
Master Plunger  It's cool cause this guy I used to hang out with in High School made it up by noticing a Master lock while he was taking a dump and then noticing the toilet plunger next to him and got Master Plunger. I wasn't in the bathroom with him, he told me how it would make a good name for our band after he finished taking the dump. hyzershot
Master Tiger ELVIS' KARATE NICKNAME, HE WAS A BLACKBELT ANDY
Master Volume I was talking about a band called Gain with a friend. We were wondering if they had got it from an amp. We started coming out with different settings on an amp, and I really liked Master Volume.  PaulCFC
Masters of Distortion This band needs to lay off the effects pedals. RevengeFromMars YouTube
The Masters of Facepalm A completely random name, which is also my nickname for MTV, since everything they show makes me do the dreaded facepalm. JeReMy

Masters of Puppets Good name for a Metallica tribute band. JeReMy

Math Debate an old joke in school...in english we were talking about some mathematical process, and it was like, 1/5 of the class versus 4/5 of the class, and my friend Jason says 'i want a math debate!' and it sounded like he said 'i wanna masturbate!' ^_^; Sarah-neko
Math Eating Cows I wish I had a pet cow that ate my HW. Don't you? I know, Iknow... it sucks Evan
Matt Dillon's Underwear This is Boy George's answer when he was asked by a magazine what would he want to be reincarnated as. I guess he meant the actor, not the marshal from "Gunsmoke". (Kinda of like when Prince Charles told Camilla Parker-Bowles he wanted to be her tampon. Equally gross.)  britrock
Mavalier My friend's favorate basketball team is the Cleveland Cavaliers and my favorite basketball team is the Dallas Mavericks and some how we messed around with it and it ended up being Mavalier so that is cool. I hope you guys like it! Jake Davenport
Max and the Black Firecrackers i looked at my kodak MAX camera and this pot i made in are which the glaze was supposed to be BLACK and FIRECRACKER. Jen
Max Speedy Artistic Sounds cultured and cool YASMR
Maxilla Okay. It's the word for the bones forming the jaw. Just sounds really neat. Kinda like "Maximum Godzilla." Also not a bad name. Chuck Fensch
Maximum Llamas I mentioned Feast of Maximum Occupancy to my brother, and being the little weirdo he is, he promptly yelled "Maximum Llamas!" I laughed. Kryojenik
Maximum Of Destruction It was a monster truck name. phone
Maxine Martindale and The Midnight Minstrels I was just making up band names and came up with Midnight Minstrels. But I decided they needed a singer with a name. I wanted it to be alliterative. So I came up with Maxine Martindale. I don't really know anyone with that name, it's just totally made up. I like it because it's alliterative. I imagine they'd either be a soft-rock or light R&B band. But I think it's a really great name for a band. Edward
Maxwell Ain't Smart Like Maxwell Smart from Get Smart, only stupid... I don't know enough about the series to say anything more... IHaveNoBrain
Maxwell Ramfist just a made up name... sounds like someone trying to be a bad ass DanEnterprises
May Contain Awesome It was on the side of a box that I received in the mail...should be for a grunge act with half naked cheerleaders, or a Spinal Tap styled group...Or Hair Metal...or Punk...or Jazz,,, G
May Contain Nuts Because it's something you hear quite often. But when you think about it, it's quite funny because it's saying that the band "might contain nuts"! Get it? Matt
May Contain Peanuts It's on all the packaging. That's a h*** of a lot o' free advertising! CHRIS pyrdsa
May of Lalaland Usually, I just sit in class twirling my hair, so all my friends call me May of Lalaland! If your music is just fun and cute, it would be perfect. May May
Mayday It's like you're rocking so hard, that you make planes come down. [Ed.'s note: Hopefully, that'll never happen.] jeff griffin
Mayonaisse Initiation Feast I came up with this name because I heard about a few of my friends that had to eat a grotesque mayo cuisine to join the basketball team, which was thought-up by the seniors. It just has a nice ring to it.  TYLER
Mayonnaise Initiation Feast I got the idea from some idiot who couldn't spell. [Ed.'s note: See TYLER's entry for "Mayonaisse Initiation Feast".] Itchy
MC Escher M.C. are the graphic artist's actual initials, so it sounds like a standard hip-hop handle. It would be a hard name to live up to, though. Schweitzito
MCI Robot I was trying to think of something cool to add to the site. And I was watching tv and a commercial came on for MCI long distance. And it clicked with me. It's from the MCI long distance thing, and a (I believe) Asimov scifi novel, I Robot. You combine the 2 and get this. I think they could be real techno funk, lots of synthesizers and drum machines and stuff. And do stuff like lots of 80s bands did where the singer would sing into one of those things that changed their voice and sound really robotic or otherworldly. Ed
McKolk Pfeffermenn And The Everflushing Toilets this is a combonation of an incident at sea cadets (The Everflushing Toilets) and a guy a made up in NBA 99 (McKolk Pfeffermenn) and it sounds punk.  hamp
McLuvin I was watching this movie called "superbad" and the guy was getting a fake i.d and his name was just Mcluvin.. So i was like, cool. Porsche
Me And My Plastic Jesus i was in my car and was lookin at my little plastic jesus thingy on my dashboard and i was like......JESUS IS COOL!!! so i came up with this one kevin
Me, This Dude And This Other Guy It popped into my head while thinking of simple things band members can say, when introducing themselves. G
Meager Portions They are the coolest christian punk band ever. They over heard there bother who is like really smart say it once and it stuck. They have a dog named Mr. Baskem and they helped me name my frog Mr. Wubbles. Spunkylatino
Mean Guitar My mom and I heard that song "Tubthumping" in a store. We messed up the lyrics: We thought they were "I got no job, but I get over it 'cause I play a mean guitar." I later thought that would be a really awesome band name. Rockette
The Mean Seething Angry Marsupials My mom and I were at the pet shop and we were looking at a sugar glider, and it was making freaky possesed noises and my mom said it was a mean seething angry marsupial.  Korin
Meandered Minds i got the word meander from an incubus song... it means not straight or curvy.. haha.... so... unstraight minds jazzy
The Meaning of Life My favourite Monty Python movie. Would look great on a marquee. Of course, your milage may vary. I'd love to listen to the Knights Who Say Ni, or perhaps The People's Front of Judea. Chris
The Meat Eating Allison's We were playing a game. The goal was to come up with a name of a band using one of the players. Allison was a "vegetarian"....yeah! Josh Clark
The Meat Sweats Not exactly a paragon of cool, the show Friends nonetheless popularized the idea of the meat sweats when dim-bulb Joey tried to eat an entire turkey. As a band name, it's a natural for some aspiring No-Wave group. Jason Reeher
Mechanical Afterbirth It just sounds like an industrial / death metal band. Plus, it's gross and stuff. Jason Reeher
Mechanically Separated Chicken Seen as primary ingredient on a "potted meat product" (SPAM spinoff) in a gas station convienence store. DeBee
Meconium This is the term used for a newborn baby's first bowel movement, which is usually a sticky, tarry mess. It sounds like a death/thrash metal band to me Ed
Meconium Inhalation Quite possibly one of the most amazing death metal/ thrash metal band names never used why the hell had no one used this name or hell even written a song about this meconium inhalation: is a medical condition affecting newborn infants. It occurs when meconium is present in their lungs during or before delivery. Meconium is the first stool of an infant, composed of materials ingested during the time the infant spends in the uterus. Meconium is normally stored in the infant's intestines until after birth, but sometimes (often in response to fetal distress) it is expelled into the amniotic fluid prior to birth, or during labor. If the baby then inhales the contaminated fluid, respiratory problems may occur. clown5336
Medical Implosion I was sat in my history class and we're studying medicine through time. Anyways, my teacher started going on about how medical advances collapsed in on themselves before the Black Death. I got me thinking, Medicine. Medical. Collapse. Implosion maybe?  Lizzy
The Medicated Mormon Muggers Yeah the can be an uderground Indie group with a solid cult fanbase playing in rave clubs in Salt Lake.  badboybear
The Mediocres From Who's Line is it Anyway, one of those CD informercials they were doing, a ripoff of the Supremes, The Mediocres! Okay, Colin Mochrie might get on your case but is money an object?  Cel-Chan
Medulla Oblingotta You know what I'm talking about if you've seen "The Waterboy". Sounds like Emo-type band to me. Junior
Medusa and the Gorgon Sisters The snakes in Medusa's hair could sing back-up...;-) Rachel
