Names -> Cool Band Names -> M, Page 3

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.

Submitted by:
Meeting in Mensroom It came from Wrongfully Accused. Leslie Nielsen's character was trying to escape from prison (his character was wrongfully accused, hence the name of the movie) but he was trying to come up with his fake identity and where he was going with places in a fishing shop he was in. His cover-up for where he was going was a "meeting in the Mensroom" (as in Men's room) JeReMy
Mega White Thing This is, of course, a line from Underworld's song "Born slippy". I found it very catchy, although I actually don't think it would make a "cool" band name anymore... (KKK On Tour??) FaultyDog
Megabitch I think that this would be a cool name for an all-girl punk or metal band (it's tongue-in-cheek but has a lot of power too.) pat
Meglomania Well, I was searching through a dictionary and saw "Megalomania". It's a mental disease or disorder, that branches off of paranoia. So, I was like this would be an awesome band name. I just took the A out, and it became Meglomania. [Ed.'s note: Megalomania is actually the love or craving of power.] Zach
Mei Long It sounds like someone's name. But actually it is the name of a dinosaur. Ned MacCamden
Mein Kampf It's German, and translated, it means "my struggle." It's also the name of a book that Adolf Hitler wrote in prison. sarah
Mel Tormented & The Comfort Station  I grew up listening to jazz and as a teen got into punk, so this was going to be my 3 piece coverband that did jazz songs punk style & punk songs jazz style. "Mel Tormented" is a pun on the name, "Mel Torme", Mel's band "comfort station" sounds like a typical lounge-jazz name but is really a pseudonym for an outdoor toilet,AKA a brick Sh*thouse. Bandmate names were to be "George Fearing" instead of "George Shearing" and "Cleo Pained" instead of "Cleo Lane". I told a bunch of musicians this joke and they loved so much they said they wanted to steal it. so for all I know, this band may now actually exist.  Testika Filch Milquetoast
The Melancholics The name of the band is totaly different than the lyrics in their music believe me these guys and gals aren't anything like the whinning EMO'S!!! nextisa
Melisma Purely because I was sitting in music class thinking 'The Stereophonics took their name from a musical concept, so why can't I?' So I chose the term melismatic and shortened it. I think it's pretty cool!  Wee Doda
Mello Felloez The cool thing is this would be, as a heavy metal or gansta' rap band, the direct opposite of the group's demeanor. (Pronounced "Mellow Fellows")  jorje
Mellow Dramatic Just a better way of saying melodramatic.... Miss Manners
Mellow Enzyme Horses I was laying in bed, in uneasy sleep with heartburn. Before I woke up enough to know what was happening and elevate my head and take an acid reducer, a song was droning through my head in my half dream state. The main repeated words to the song that I can remember were "mellow enzyme horses". Tess O. Gosset
Mellow Peril A band for those who claim smoking pot is dangerous. RevengeFromMars YouTube
The Melody Jean I came up with the name while talking to one of my friends online. Her name was Melody and it sounds Melodic and her last name is Jean, and it just sounded perfect for the band. F.Y.I. It's a Metal band. Kanon Autry
Melophobic Testosterone Injections This is my band name, I came up with it. Melophobia is the fear or hatred of music. And we're manly men, or at least I am out of all the members. Its funny, Ok? DJ C-Lo
Melted Air It's just something I made up. It just sounds cool and makes for a cool visual. Even though we all know air can't melt! Edward
Members Sold Separately I was just thinking about those commercials for dolls where the annonoucer say, 'Accessories (or other dolls) sold separately'. How about a band where there's only one or two members, and the rest of the band is 'sold separately'?  band name
The Membrains I got the idea from Invader Zim. Profeser Membrain. Your wors nightmare
Memento Demori It is "Remember the deaths" in Italian. Its what friends and family put on so called witches graves in Salem. It was my band name, but not anymore.  JonnyRiot
Men At Play I always kinda thought the bands members from MEN AT WORK were kinda gay, so... ....self explanitory... Jo-Jo-Mo-Hoe
Men in Black the members of our band all wear black suits whenever we have a gig. we thought it was pretty original since that is something that no one our age does, since we're 15, 16, and 17. Brett
Men in Fat So like 2 days ago I was at my friend's B-day party at an indoor pool in a hotel, so when our fat a**es took off our shirts his dad started singing to the Men in Black tune, "Here come the Men in Fat!" wadded beef
Men in Skirts Ever seen that Turn off the Light Nelly Furatado video? They'd make a great band. Inside joke with my friends. Joy Gerhardt
Men Without Pants What's so cool about men without hats? This is what people want to see. Matt
Menacing Cabbages A friends of mine once said "menacing I am! a cabbage I am not!" Sounds like what Radiohead SHOULD be called 'cos they sound like raging cabbages. Dave Stringer
Menacrest Kinda' stupid but worth telling...My dad had told me to go take a shower and brush my teeth but whiule I was in there I saw the name on the crest tube after i had seen the word s a men so i fixed it up a but and got Menacrest. Alf
Meniscus Heard it in science class years and tears ago. If you hold a test tube of water or liquid up to eye level, menicus is the little cresent shape that the surface tension on the liquid creates. Mikey
Menkkamaha it's finnish and means the phenomenon when your stomach turns all bloating and sore during your periods. Planning to perform under this name (e.g.U2 hits translated into finnish, in punk versions..huge succes ahead) Riina
Mennonite Mutilators My friend helped me come up with this because we go to a Pacifist school. We HATE it! Phillip
Menstral Explosion It's just a funny name I heard someone say. Trevor Wilson
Mental Caries "Dental Caries" is tooth decay. So Mental Caries must be... RevengeFromMars YouTube
Mental Pause You hit menopause and your mind starts to go. IHaveNoBrain
Mental Warfare My friend thought a this one doing homework. He was like,"This home is like mental warfare". This is now our band name. Anon Jamels
Mentally Molested I was listening to the song "Mind" by System of a Down; and one of the lines says, "Mutually mentally molested children of sin". Another cool name would be Children of Sin. But yeah, I just came up with that right now, and I thought it was cool. randa
Mentally Perky My friend Tressa was really hyper in school, and she said she had been tired earlier in the day, and I said "Well, now you're perky again." She replied "No, I've been perky all day. I've been mentally perky." I thought it would be a cool band name, and she agreed... amanda
Mentally Unprepared It'd be kewl... especially if all the songs were like, about deep stuff... It'd be a total oxymoron Tiajuana
Menthrass It's cool becuase it sounds like some rare drug or something. I came up with it by trying to write "rape" in the AIM window while my friend was messing around with the keyboard. [Ed.'s note: Sounds like Cah could be on some Menthrass. (J.K. :)]  Cah
Menukanuva me and my friend were watcing a skate video called menikmati, but he misread it and said menukanuva ' modern
Mephistophelean I was searchin the dictionary when it caught my eye. It means fiendish or the devil in German history. roy g. biv

Mercy Flush Inside joke between me and my mother. It sounds completely serious until you stop to think about it. Zach

Merit Dr. A street where the entire band lived.... Makes sense, thats where it happens. Matt Selou
Mermaids' Socks Something that would have no reason to exist (even if mermaids were real). Regina Haniger
The Mersyla It's one of those "The"...band names... and Mersyla is a cool name. So it fits in to the indie, powerpop, and melodic punk genre(s). Trevor

Meserker It's a Polish folk dance. Walter Pickett
Mesmereyes A real cool band for those with striking eyes. deepdarkme
Messed Up Minds This one (like 10,000,000,000,000,000 others) just came to me. SamVK
Metal Air Baloon Cause it has a referance to Led Zepplin, and its one of those names that just stick in your head after hearing it,I figured thats what I'm gonna name my band. Dillverick
Metal Health This, just kind of from mental health and something we thought of just trying to think of something to name our band JALA
Metal Hungry i was just thinking, and whenever im bored, i just wanna rock. Its kinda like a craving for drugs or sumthin. im a drummer, and u cant play the drums at any time. so sometimes when wanna play, u cant ,u gotta wait,so the craving gets stronger.well theres how i thought of this band name.  Ryan morse-i luv katie thomas
Metal Ice It's real catchy and band names don't need to make sense. Say the name a lot of times and it will sound really cool then! Aoife (sounds Like Eefa) It's Irish
Metal In The Microwave I was watching this science show when someone put light globes in a microwave. [Ed.'s note: Don't try this at home.] casey
Metal of Honor Great name for a metal band JeReMy
Metal Slime Named after the recurring creature from the "Dragon Warrior" games. I'd imagine they'd sound similar to Staind or Puddle of Mudd, with a name like that... Olvan The Terrible

Metal Urinal Great name for a spoof metal band! 7 string les

The Metalheart there is this band Accept that has this album thats called metalheart and then i tought it was a great band name tony andre'
Metalic Acid I was trying to think of a Metallica kind of band, but with more of a punk feel to it. First I thought of Metallica on Acid, but then I just shortened it. Zach
Metalic Fire I just came up with this on the ride home when some dude in a monster truck pulled up behind with metal flames on front and painted on colored flames above on truck. wLvZ aLl RoUnD
Metallic Interferance Its like metal...interfering with something you want.Or someone else wants. I was thinking of metallica and this popped up. Ivan
The Metallicas The Metallicas could be a cover Metallica band Chazm
The Metallics When we were trying to think of a name for the band, my friend's mother came in wearing metallic pants. Yes...metallic PANTS. So, we named ourselves The Metallics in honour of her mum's strange wardrobe. Minette
Metamorphic Rock Cool name for a prog rock band i.e. a band that progresses or metamorphosises as it gets old. Old Hamo
Metamorphosis It means to change, like transform into something better. What a cool name for a band trying to prove that they're better than everyone else? SwEeTyPiE
Metaphive According to my grade 10 English teacher, it was what came after a 'metaphor'. Chute D'Breeze
Metaphor A metaphor is... uhm... kinda like an analogy. And an analogy is something like... um... "If you sink 3 out of 10 baskets you shoot, as in, 3 out of 10 guys talk to you, then you're good, so keep your self esteem and don't feel bad if some guy looks at you and says something mean." Thanks for lettin me play with your analogy, Johnny (Rzeznik)! Raedyn
A Metaphor of Dissimilarity It's cool because it doesn't make sense. A metaphor points out the similarity of things, & therefore can't be a metaphor of dissimilarity. I think it would be good for a indie/punk rock band. If it was used, people could shorten it to 'Metaphor', which would also be cool. Burnzy
Metaphors In Paradox Sounds VERY Cool! It gets you coming and going. This could be a cancelled out analogy from an alternate universe meaning something & nothing at the same time. So, where do you go from here, Neverland? If so, ya better watch your back. That Pan kid will get ya everytime. Also a terrific Album title.  Mr.Ree
Metaplasia I was just going to look something up in the dictionary, and I saw this weird word Metaplasia: replacement of one kind of cell. Thought it was kinda kewl. Rachel C.

Mettle Mettle means spirit or courage. I just thought it was a cool name for a garage band.  Binx
Mexican Explosion Daughter came up with the name, along with the concept of dressing like mariachis and playing heavy metal. Mike Lydic
Mexico City Peahats Came up with this in high school in the late 80s. A Peahat is one of the characters in the video game "Legend of Zelda". Where would you find one naturally? Well, Mexico City I guess, since I've never been there. I mean, have *you* ever seen a live Peahat? And have *you* ever been to Mexico City? There you are then. WildLegend
Mezmorizd How did I come up with it? Me and my friend were working on a manga we were drawing and needed to spell "mesmerized". After a long while, we gave up. Our last attempt ended up being "mezmorizd". He laughed and said, "That would be the coolest band name". It stuck. Phoenix
Miami Sex and Cleveland Cleavage On the TruTV show "Clipaholics", there was a clip of a fight during an LFL game. One of the lines used by the show's narrator, Jason Alexander, was "This game is about a lot more than sex and cleavage, unless you're watching tonight's game between the Miami Sex and Cleveland Cleavage." Also, "Miami Sex" and "Cleveland Cleavage" would be good band names separately. JeReMy
Miami Vicodin Watching reruns of Miami Vice will make you feel like you've been sedated. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Miasma Means small gust of foul air e.g I just released a rather amusing miasma , can be used as an ajective e.g There was a Miasma o mistrust in the air I read it in the dictionary one lonley day Bob Hope

Micro Time turn the o at the end of micro into a clock EMINEM FOREVA
Microvawe Intentional misspelling of Microwave, popped into my head as a good name for a joke Metal group, due to the fact that it is unwise to put actual metal in a microwave. G
The Microwavable Hamsters Anybody would want to know the outcome? Acidic36
Microwavable Washcloths Stacey had a sty on her eyelid and put the washcloth in the microwave and the microwave blew up. so that time, she couldnt have her washcloth to put on her eyelid to make the sty go away...she still has a sty now....... Stacey & Michel
Mid Carson Cadence I have this best friend who is dating this girl named Carson. He and I always make fun of her by saying she is his "Mid Carson Crises". I thought it was funny so I put her middle name "Cadence" on the end. It would be a really good name for any kind of band. Leah
Mid-life Crisis The band I'm in is made up of middle aged use-to's and wanna be's. We hava a crappy name and we were kicking around some new names. This one came to me and as I said it outloud, I realized that I was the YOUNGEST member of the band and the old dudes didn't really think it was funny. Mike
Midas some dude that touches stuff and turns it to gold  crap
