Names -> Cool Band Names -> M, Page 4

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:
Midd Finger Me and my friend made up a band and we just named it MiddFinger so I think it's cool! Isn't it ? Juanovouz Deckleirmech
Middle Crust There's are upper crust families (the rich) and lower crust families (the poor), so why not a middle crust? Like used in a three-tiered pizza.  rockhead
Middle of Next Month We had fans of our band that said we sounded awful and getting worse by the day. I told them we we getting worse by the day, then we are sounding like the Middle of Next Month TonyDuhProducuh
Midevil just look at it-i was just sitting around playin' my strings..and it..just came to me....(i'm not stoned) Rich
Midgets In Costumes  My friends and I realized this would be a great glam rock band. Diana
Midlife Christs I like the pun on "midlife crisis" (since I'm old), the sacreligious edge, and the way it sounds when you extend the ending "sts" consonants ad infinitum. 2lateDave
Midlife Crisis I was trying to think of a name for our all-female band (we are all over 30 and have kids!), and thought this would be great if we ever decided to go punk. Kate
Midnight Carnival I saw it in an arcade game called "Guilty Gear XX". Michael
Midnight Engagement My friend got engaged at midnight...and it turned out to make a cool band name. Andrew
Midnight Game Misheard lyrics to one of my favorite songs prompted this, plus the title of one of my favorites. Buru-kun
Midnight Mass For The Dying Year A poem by Henry Longfellow, it's really good, and the name is pretty rad. Anita Bransom
Midnight Rose  My name is Rosalie, and my boyfriend calls me his Midnight Rose all the time. It's very significant to me, so I thought it would make a great band name.  Rosalie
Midnight Sun Saw it in a book. It's classic and crazy if you think about it. X420er
midNIGHTmare i came up with it at midnight when i woke up after a nightmare marko
Mightier Than Kong Great Name for an Eighties Stoke Band Terry Baker
A Mighty Robot My friend has a Voltron T-Shirt that says "A Mighty Robot" and I thought it was a pretty cool band name. BeN
Mighty Tighty Whiteys For those who truly feel the need of such things this is self explanatory. There is not a sturdier model of industrial strength panties. The free b***ers of the world however might find a bit of comic irony in this. Would not suggest this as an actual name for a band that really has an emotional attachment to the afore mentioned garmet.  Cyn J
Migrane i jst thought that loud music + moshing= sore head, really loud music + resally hard moshing= migrane. Porbably good for a metal band  Danny
Mik Pik I ogt a friend named mike and we were jammin in my basement when he took a guitar pick and slammed it into the styrophome wall so it stuck out and said "thats Mik Pik's Pik Trick" humbucker
Mikau and the Indigo-Go's Mikau is a guitar-playing Zora from Majora's Mask. He plays for a band called the Indigo-Go's in the game, and he really rocks out. In the game, though, he died at the hands of some Gerudo pirates. I think his soul would live on if he had a band named after him and the band he played for in reality. Mikau is really awesome.  Leopard FLAsh
Mike Britt Phenomenon The "Mike Britt phenomenon" is a term I came up with for the fact that even in the best groups, someone needs to be the worst, named after comedian Mike Britt, who was my least favorite of a group of three commentators on TruTV Presents World's Dumbest... with the same first name, him, Mike Trainor, and Michael Loftus, though all three are among my top 10 favorites on the show. JeReMy
Mike Rafone and 'The Sound Waves' Mike Rafone is obviously a play on the word Microphone and the last part could be anything (the Distortion, the Speakers, the Whatever etc.) clever devil
Mikes Unborn Children Many great things come from friends that are always with girls Joe
Mikey Likes It It's from some commercial (Life Cereal), but i thought it was like no one really knows who Mikey is. But one thing's for sure: He sure does like it. Monekka
Mildred Pierce It's based off of the song by Sonic Youth. [Ed.'s note: But it's more commonly known as a 1945 movie with Joan Crawford, except with Sonic Youth fans.] Harbz
MILeS FroM CLeVeR Combining an obscure Pink Floyd reference with the fact that where we are (Southern Maryland) there just isn't that much clever. It makes for good tour names, though, like "I'm Not Miles" and "You Are Here" MCK
Miles From Life Because if you are totally just out of the way from everything, kinda dazed, you feel like you are Miles from Life. I was thinking of names, and I thought of Miles from You/Her/Life and others like that. This was one that stood out. Muzic Man (MZX)
Miley plays with toasters  I was watching a video on my chemical romance and they say that Miley way used to Stick forks in the toaster :3 and it's a mix between the cure and nirvana  Lily
Milk It! Yes, it could be one of those teen boy or teen girl bands. Comes from the phrase "Milking it" meaning to promote a fad for as long as possible, or "Milk, it does a body good", the early 90's milk ad campaign. Let's milk it! newrock
Milk The Gimp My band was throwing around potential band names, and worked our way through from 'The Gimps' to 'Gimpjuice' (slightly unsavoury), to the final, downright rotten 'Milk the Gimp'.  Jimmy Eat Cake
The Milk Toasts A play on the term "milquetoast" which means a very shy or wimpy person. Tastes good with waffles, too. band name
The Milkshakes I come up with it when I ate the breakfast. (I don't think I have to explain more. xD) iamfromgermany
Milky-shake-ish-ness My friend called someone at my school that. It's strange! Everbody loves strangeness! Calvin Mcfarlane
Millenium 3 I was thinking up a band name and the word Millennium kept n coming in them, and there were three of us, so why not "Millennium 3"? P.S. I took out one of the n's because it looks better. ilove1d
Millenium Theory Reading thru books the other day frm 1993, they had all these predictions about what it would be like in the year 2000, none of it became a reality. Perfect for overestimated bands Lmc
Millitary Koalas Got inspired by shows like Ninja Turtles. J.C Shazam
Milton Deriving from the savage comedy 'Office Space', a personal triumph! Luke Warm
The Mimes My friend and I came up with this, we both though that it'd be a hilarious name. Just because of the irony... the point of a band is to make music. (Most of the time.) Adah
Mimi well.. you see i was around my mother 24-7 so she called me minie me.i could not pronounce the word so i said(mimi) thats cool about my cool nick name and my friends call me kandie couse i love it... latisha
Mimi's Menstrual Cycle They only work 28 days a month and get in big trouble if they're late. VJON
Mind Play Forget Cold Play, at least this one makes some sense. It grew from an old drug saying, "quit messing with my mind". It also hints at intelligent foolishness. Gary Gray
Mind Spanking My math teacher inspired me!!! Thomas Smidt
Mind The Bullocks In response to the Sex Pistols first album Rocky
Mind The Doors A phrase you often hear in the London Underground; sounds more like an indie rock group Brendan Richards
Mind The Gap Anyone who's ever travelled by London Underground will know what I'm talking about. Kitt
Mindless Self Indulgence They are this AWESOME band that plays "Industrial Jungle P***y Punk" music (I guess you could call it punk rock/metal/rap/hip-hop/hard rock...yes..all of it...). "Mindless self indulgence" is something crazy that will get you nowhere and is mostly for your own enjoyment. That is what they are all about. Go to Mindlessselfindulgence.com or Mindlesscrackers.com and check them out...Little Jimmy Urine is sooo hot...F***** is the most awesome song ever... mindlesscracker14
Mindless Squeegee Just driving around with a friend trying to come up with a wild band name Kevin Zent
Miner League Baseball Instead of "minor league" JeReMy
Minerva A Deftones song, but she's the Goddess of Wisdom. Brizzy
Ming's Assassin "Ming" sounds like a dull and dumb name, but if you add the word "Assassin", it makes all the difference. It would most likely be the name of a Linkin Park-like band. The name was based on some girl I know from school. (P.S. This is actually the name of my weblog.) DesructiveDanXavier
Minnie Pearl It's a line from a Dead Milkmen song: "let's have a daughter, we'll name her Minnie Pearl'' Charlotte Sometimes
Minor Hysteria Anything that happens when me and two or more of my friends gets together is minor, or major, hysteria. The Nazgul of Samhain
Minor Incognito We were listing all the offenses that people we know had be busted with, like MIP, MIC etc. But we couldn't remember what MIC stood for, so my friend took a poor guess, and said "Minor Incognito". Jerry
Minor Offence Well this was going to be our band name. That was before we split up. Best for a punk band.  Felicity from australia
The Minority Me and my friend were sitting around trying to think up band names, and we changed topic and she said something about how "we're the minority" and i was like "that'd be an awesome band name!" and we couldn't think of any other band that had that name, so that's us Zoe
Minority's Rule My old garage band name. We wanted to like be different from everyone, so we used the old adage. Neill
Minors In My Pants My friend and i were saying words then saying "in my pants. my friend said Minors and i said "in my pants" hence our newfound band name. hey rahah its me ;D
Mint Jealousy Not sure...sure leaves a funny taste in your mouth... Kelly Wright
The Minty Hippos My friend was watching "Master of Disguise". In it is a thirty-second dialogue about Operation Minty Hippo. Lizard

Miracle Tortilla Pilgrims I was reading about this miracle tortilla with a holy image on it and that "pilgrims" were arriving from around the globe to visit it and triapsing through this little old ladies house by the thousands.  badboybear
Mirroring Ghost It's the first song that I wrote along with my new band, it's a slower song. I'm not really sure how to describe it yet, but the name sounds kinda like a gothic/dark band. smileythemask
Mirrors Folded I was just looking around my room, and right there was a folding chair, and on the wall was a mirror. It's totally random. Sydni
Misanthropy It means hatred of all mankind. Awesome for a death metal band. Brandon

Misguided Children Of Koyaanisqatsi one time, me and my friends were drunk, and we heard a song called Koyaanisqatsi. we stole the name, and he is our drinking god. the word is actually Hopi Indian for "life out of balance", so it's a cool name in itself Deprae
Mishashta It's my nickname for this Russian goalie. When I actually wrote this (as one word) I was surprised at how CRAZY it looks! deep syxx
Misheard Lyrics I read it off your website. Because it will make people listen to the lyrics more. Hence, it won't make it to the website...right? Randy

Misplaced Optimism This was the name of a band I was in very briefly. We thought it was pretty cool cos not only does it sound alright but also it referred to the way we felt bout the band... we liked to pretend it was gonna go somewhere (hence the optimism) but it didn't (so the optimistic feelings were misplaced). Thus the name was born. Padman
Miss B Haven My dad had a boat that had this name. I like the play on words. Patty
Miss Calculation Some women spend too much time scheming. Makes for a good band name at least. RevengeFromMars YouTube

Missing E The guitarist in our band is always missing his high E string. So what the h***? Why not make it the name of our band!?? Matt
The Missing Peace It has two meanings: 1) the piece of a puzzle and addresses and 2) the lack of peace in today's world. Clever huh? Jesse_F
The Missing Weekend It's cool because it denotes getting out of it so much that you dont remember. mannequinboy
Mission Demolition Would be a good name for a punk rock band. If you like punk rock. Edward
Mission Of Darkness It's the title of a really bad anime that I saw (really, REALLY bad... avoid at all costs). In spite of that it'd make a good band name - possibly an industrial metal group... plus The Darkness are a pretty cool band (IMHO) so having the word "darkness" in your name at the moment couldn't do too much harm miss bad example
The Mission Room I was watching the music video for Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over" one day. The concept of the video is like a family photo album. In one part of the video the band is playing in what looks like an attic with candles surrounded around them. Below the screen it reads "The Mission Room." Krista-chan
Mist of Confusion I don't know, it just sounded cool. Aly

Mistaken Integrity Me and my friend Kris have too many names as it is...I wanted 'Penis' but, eh. Anyway, we were on the train and on the map, somebody had scribbled something on it. To her, it looked like it said "Mistaken Integrity". To me (without my glasses) it looked like "fsklajlfjklj" so there you have it. Monica-The Good Witch of Washington
Mister McFeely This was an idea me and my buddies had in high school for our band. I was the only one who wanted this name. We also pondered "Steamed Clams", but ended up using "Discrepancy Deutch". twackt
Mister Rogers With An Uzi Inspired by another cool band name on this site, When Mr. Rogers Breaks Down. The description said it could have a cool picture of Mister Rogers with an uzi, which I thought is a cool band name in itself. Cessi
Mister Thou and Mistress Thee This band name could be great for a male-female rock duo, like Mates of State or the White Stripes. The name comes from the video game "Final Fantasy 6." Olvan The Terrible
