Names -> Cool Band Names -> M, Page 5

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.

The Misunderstood I just like saying it. alot of the times I am misunderstood. So, that represents me. Amanda Day
Misunderstood It really talks about a lot of people who are complex and are understood. One day I was kind of sad and thought of some different band names and this popped up. Anne Ongsuco
Mitch's Rubber Chicken. My roommate, Mitch had a rubber chicken. Someone said something about Mitch's rubber chicken, and I was like, "That would make a totally sweet name for a band." Justin
Mitochondria It sounds neat..............Biology class  Greg Becker

A Mix So when people asked you what you were listening to, you'd say "A Mix" Dan
Mixaphorically Speaking My best pal loves "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" Refers to a line George Clooney's character says in the film. Kristina
Mixed Metaphor My 8th Grade math teacher had a band, but needed a name for it. She asked the class for suggestions, and said that it should be random. I thought of some, including Mixed Metaphor, but I never got to submit them because I caught the flu. Mixed Metaphor sounded like a cool name for a band, and it means a metaphor ( i.e. hungry as a wolf, I could eat a horse) that has been mixed up with a different one ( I'm so hungry I could eat a wolf). Siri Stone
A Mixed Tape Affair I was just browsing around the internet when I saw the line "MIXED TAPE" jump out at me then I thought if My Chemical Romance. Another word for romance is affair; and it is pretty awesome to add 'A' in front of it. Lauren
The Mixture Dude, i don't know why it's cool. It just is. The name came off of a medicine bottle, the little sticker said; THE MIXTURE shake the bottle. Cool or what. Erin
Mjolnir it was thors hammer the weapon of a mighty god whats not cool about that.  nazgul
Mk 9/11 Mark Nine Eleven. I am not suggesting that 9/11 should be used as a joke, but the name, Mark 9/11. It means, to mark the day, so that we will never forget.  Josh
Mo Naked Hoes Because in "Lord Of The Rings" Sam (Gamgee) says, "Potatoes", but it looks like he's saying, "Mo Naked Hoes". It's genius. lauren
Moaning Adhesive Makes me think of either a really sick sex game OR tape being ripped off of someone/something... or velcro even! SCREAMING VELCRO!!! Leslie
Mob Mentality I was studying sociology and we study the mob mentality and it just seemed like a good name for a punk band. LeAnne

Modus Operandi If there isn't a band with this name there should be. It's Latin and would translate into English mode of operation or operational mode. You often hear it on cop shows as just m.o. an abbreviation. It just sounds like a band name. Edward
Modus Ponens It's a concept in logic called "affirming the antecedent." It would be good for a band for thinking people, like Talking Heads or They Might Be Giants. Or a band in a college town.  Doolsey
Moe Chow A big hair band name's delight. Also could liscence a candybar after it. The name came in a dream. One day, they will play on SNL. Farkus Dillanger

moment of perfect clarity  from the novel "buffallo soldiers" (forgot the authors name). a fictional story of american GI's stationed in germany and operating bigtime criminal enterprise from within the army base. the story's protagonist is a heavy drug abuser in constant fear of being exposed as such. MPC is the mental state he sometimes achieve when the drugs he constantly takes to adjust his "high" balance each other perfectly and produces a sense of total control and confidence. his MPC moments are shortlived forcing our hapless chap back to inventing new ways of taking drugs in the middle of meetings, etc  Steffen Solem
A Moment of Zen For those who have watched the Daily Show, you should know what I speak of. "And now your moment of Zen." "BOOOOOOM" "Now back to your regularly scheduled program." It could be, like, a metal band or somefish. I like fish ^_^ Usa ^_^

Mondayitis I dunno, i just thought of that girl who killed two people b/c she hated Mondays and i though that's really sad, then i thought hey, cool band name! i hate mondays
Money For The Man I was walking downtown one day and saw a blind man with a jar with a sign that said "Please,I can't find a home".I was so moved by his problem that I went over and put a five in his hand. He stopped me and said to me "Son, mankind needs this more than I do" and I smiled and said "but you are mankind." I put the money in his jar and walked away I have been forever moved by that experience but my band is called Blind Mankind so I didn't think of this until now. Lizard King
Monkey Chow it just sounds really cool and i heard it on this program and just could'nt stop laughing i use it all the time.  Daisy dares you
Monkey Fever  I came up with name because, my friends love monkeys, so we named a club Monkey Fever. That is one reason we picked Monkey Fever. We every Friday night we would have a show and play the Monkey Fever song. And every one said this show is awesome and cool! Becky
Monkey Forbidden Someone has this as her location on a message board I go on, and I thought it sounded pretty cool. The CD cover could be like a monkey in a cage and he's holding onto the bars or something. flipside

MonoJack I went to Best Buy and got these worthless speakers that weren't even compatible with my cheap-ass stereo. I went back to return the speakers, and the salesman said I had a "Mono Jack" (plug) and needed a stereo jack instead. The other salespeople just laughed at him. He 's now names band names instead. (I don't know, but let's just say he doesn't work at Best Buy anymore.) ;)  rocky
Monojex It is inspired by the finest syringe known to wisdom-toothless people everywhere. Boy Howdy
Monolith I was in science class, studying plate tectonics, and I read that a monolith = big ROCK. Since rock was our genre, we had to rock big, so why not big rock? Justice
Monroe Just think about it. A hard rock band named after a famous actor.  Thomas
Monsieur Boones Well, Boones is my 2 year old son's nickname and my sister started adding Monsieur which means Mister in French, It's crazy, but kind of funny. She calls him that and people actually thinks it's a grown man. I think it's a pretty cool way to make up a name, or band name. Raquel

The Monster In Your Closet My former band name, just reminds me of the fears we won't face, you know? john scofield
Monster Smalahove Smalahove is a Norwegian dish, consisting of a salted and smoked sheep head. Once I had a nightmare about eating huge monster smalahoves with long, sharp horns and yellow, glowing eyes. That was creepy. So today I was talking to a friend about smalahove, and I remembered the dream. The rest is history I guess. Foxy-chan
Monstrositi I just think it describes the way people act. mel.. parkins
The Montagues weeeelll, the Montagues from Romeo and Juliet kick ass. It would be a good unheard of rock band name. Rktikfox
Montana Rockets Think this one is self explanatory. For the uninformed, this is what you do when out in the woods, need to blow your nose, and no tissues. Hold thumb to one nostril (not the plugged one) lean forward and blow hard. Cyn J
Montrossity Named after former Indiana high school basketball player Eric Montross, who went on to North Carolina and a brief NBA career. Also, I thought of the name The Monster Albatross, but Montrossity is much cooler.  Hoosier
Moo Goo Guy Band Don't remember how we came up with this, but I think it's cool because it sounds like a Chinese stir-fry dish. Ja Harbour
Mood Ring It has a certain ambiance. Could be a cool jazz band name. Or definitely a 70s disco cover band. Any kind of music that's danceable and fun. Anyone old enough to remember 70s mood rings? Those things were cool. Ed
Mookie Wilson Wilson was an outfielder for the New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays from 1980 to 1991. Also, Pearl Jam was going to call themselves "Mookie Blaylock" after a different professional athlete nicknamed "Mookie". JeReMy
Moon Guts I was in the car and the moon looked very large, for some reason, so I started freaking out, saying "Ah!! The moon's gonna explode and there will be moon guts everywhere!!". Hence the name. Vieve
Moonbeam Motorhome A 60s Pych/Garage band with fuzz guitars, feedback, and a blaringly loud Moog synth making the space noises. This band got their name from a song in a Ren & Stimpy cartoon. JBL

Moonmantis Class project spawned this one. Mike
The Moonrats Might give a band a quasi-exterrestrial aura, even though a moonrat is an actual hedgehog-like animal of southeast Asia. D. Melody Dole, MD
The Moops From the "Seinfeld" episode "The Bubble Boy". George plays Trivial Pursuit against the titular "bubble boy". He replies that one particular answer is "The Moors", but George says it was "The Moops". (It was a typo.) Let's just say it didn't end well. Brian Kelly
Mops Over Microphones Big Hair bands of the 80's inspired this name.  alchem99
Moral Speed Bump A friend was talking about how hot a way too young girl was and said that the only thing stopping him was when he hit "the wall of morality" to which someone replied, "but with you it's more like a moral speed bump." sarge
Morbid Tortoise Playing with paints, Placed a few drops on a piece of paper and folded it creating a Rorschach. What came out looked like a multi colored turtle. Hence the idea and name Morbid Tortoise. Laszlo Voros
More For Less I thought this name was cool, because I know of bands that do so much to try to make a difference in the world and don't succeed when they need recognition. So if any of you understand this name, then this name is for you. daniel
More Than Motion  This name suggests that the music that the band makes is something more than a father beating their child. More than the screams of a broken family. More than any pain. More than Emotion. More than Motion. L
More Than You Can Fathom i heard it in a song and i thought it'd be a cool name Noah sennholz
More To Multiply One day in math class, I was taking this test and part of an answer was "there are more ways to multiply". I think it's cool, but it could be taken the wrong way! mich
Morning Glory Reminds me of a firework(good rock band name) Kelsi
Morning Nightmare well one day my friend was telling me that she had a nightmare the night b4 but her dream was set in the morning time and i thought it was funny to have a nightmare when its morning. (just to clarify this: she was sleeping at night but her dream that she was dreaming took place in the morning) poo
MorNiNg wOOd Cool name, makes me laugh. (Came from, no pun intended, a "Beavis and Butthead" episode.) CorEy
Moronic Acid It's a real chemical compound, but it's found in (!) the bottom of ancient egyptian pots, which was too boring for a name like that, and I figured it would make a great name for a sort of punk-metal band. If my friends and I ever decide to get off our lazy a**es and start a band, maybe we'll call ourselves that. It sound like a NOFX style band that would constantly be telling MTV to go **** themselves. That would be us! crazy goat
Morphine the Med Students I was just thinkin' about med students/surgeons/doctors and what they might do in thier spare time. Do morphine of course! Knumb Prodigy
Morphine, OD I just had an operation and I came up with it and laughed! Robert
Mort De Rive I read in in a book of trivia that, in France, people texting use "MDR" in place of "LOL". "MDR" stands for "mort de rive", which in English means, "I died laughing". Jonathan S.
The Mortars sounds like a classic rock band name, was going to be the name of my band enemy909
Morte Inferno We put the to words together. It means "fire by death" (or "death by fire"). I think it sounds good.  trinidad
The Mortgages A name for a 30 something pick up band that suddenly finds itself famous. Inspired by a band in the 1973 Punch Christmas Annual! They'd be so boring that they'd be kewl! Nice Bob
The Mortimer Snerds In Stephen King's novel Carrie, the bitchy popular girls refer to the geeks and losers as Mortimer Snerds. This would be a great name for some sort of angst-ridden underground emo band. [Ed.'s Note: Mortimer Snerd was one of Edgar Bergen's puppet characters.] Jimmy's Dreamgirl
The Mortimer Snerds Sounds like a really flippant, in-your-face punk band. The name is a nod to Stephen King's novel Carrie, in which the unpopular kids were known contemptuously as Mortimer Snerds by the sadistic rich girl. Alicia
The Mosh Pit Sorority Sisters I saw this term in a magazine, and thought it would be a good name for a riot grrrl band, plus it combines two opposites, since sorority sisters are stereotypically goody-goody (even though they may really not be)! Carla Bisagni
The Moshed Potatoes my friend is obsessed with saying potato. pladmaster
Mosiac Disease my friends and I were gonna start a band, we flipped through the dictionary and this is a type of disease for a plant.  Anna
