Names -> Cool Band Names -> M, Page 6

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:
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
Mosquito Bite i got a mosquito bite once and i thought that would be a cool band name mike
Mosquito Libido Clearly a Nirvana cover band. RevengeFromMars YouTube
Mosquito Valentine This is the full name of Doug's friend Skeeter on the cartoon "Doug". It calls to mind something sexy and yet bloodthirsty, and thus would make a great name for a tough, raunchy all-girl band. Kath
Moss Feaster This is a name of a funeral home in the town I am from in Florida. I thought is sounded like a kick *** name. pjam1379
Mossy Faith & The South Side Sinners  I was straining my brain to find a handle for a large soul band with horns, background chorus and a soulish lead singer. I knew "the South Side" would be in it but nothing else clicked. Then I heard Percy Faith (actually Percy Sledge, but whatever), but sing "When A Man Loves A Woman" and I really felt it. So I new "Faith" was working and with that word I tagged "Sinners" on the end and Mossy (an old cajun name) on the front. That was good enough for Riely and good enough for me. [Ed.'s note: I don't know who Riely is, so don't ask.] Gary Gray
Most Natural Plastic Fruits On my office wall, I have a bag of plastic fruit with this phrase, which has most likely been poorly translated from Chinese or Japanese.  Chuck Fensch
The Most Unlikely Of Heroes I think it would be awesome for like a rock punk band Sarah
Most Valuable Posers Isn't this what MVP stands for in the music world today? RevengeFromMars YouTube
Most Wanted It was Hillary Duff's new cd!! Emily
Mostly Harmless My friend wrote it on the front of her English book, then I started doodling around it. It ended up quite a cool piece of art. Now our band is called Mostly Harmless. Sage Sardonyx
Mostly Republicans This could totally be a political band - not necessarily pro-Republican, but could be a great form of criticism. Lorelei Leigh
Moth Eel An anagram of "The Mole" The Mole
Mother Fear The last song in Fear 3 is "Mother" by Danzig. BunnyKiller
Mother Mary and the Plenary Indulgence Just saw Dogma, and the phrase "Plenary Indulgence" just jumped out... and in Mary (the mother of Christ) and the band name is born Dave Hollins
Mother's Half-n-Half A play on "Mother's Milk" or breast milk. It would be perfect for a female band to promote masectomies. babe
Mother's Worry  kathleen opc
Mothers Against Drunk Drinking  Mike Lydic
Moths The Moths is an amazing name. It is like a butterfly, only darker and sinister because it is a night creature. The story about the moth and the flame is a wonderful allegory on romance, so if any insect could scream rock n' roll, it would be the moth. Besides, it would be mispronounced wonderfully as The Meulths (see A Shot In The Dark), and it could spurn fantastic album titles by the group. Lou Guru
The Motile Sperm I told my cousin a few years back that I saw a "townie" band in Athens, GA called The Motile Sperm - she believed me and tried to find out where they played. I thought up the name in an alcohol haze and thought it was funny. W.D. Payne
Motivational Methodology I heard a character on Scrubs use this phrase. It's just fun to say. Would be a great name for any pop/rock band. Their music would be catchy and uptempo. Edward
Motorkill Its a pretty cool metal band. Name i came up with it when i got the band, Motorhead mixed with their song Overkill. maddie
Motorsickle Vince Neil pronounces the word "motorcycle" this way in the Mötley Crüe song "Girls Girls Girls". GlamRockNinjaLord
Motyl The polish word for butterfly Lori Blonde
Mouldy Toast This name rocks because it is my own creation and i don't think toast even goes moldy, so it's different. bry-bob
Mountain Dolls Sound like a hip band with creativity DHizzy
Mountain Don't For those of us who hate Mountain Dew. (Yes, there are some who don't like it.) Lance Crackers
Mounting Indifference My personal indifference is mounting with every passing day. Dave Emke
Mourning Glory It is so cool. coz when u say it people will think Morning like the oasis song but it is mourning glory so it is sorrow in glory. a conderdictary term but a very good one. hdhdhdh
The Mourning Process When our drummer died, we couldn't let go. Hence the name, the mourning process. Los Chihuahuas de Mike
Mouthful of Butter I heard some kid in marching band say that he ate the whole glob of butter...band kids heh.  Chesty Laroo AKA Busty StClair
Mouthy Lil Bastardz or The HoundDogs i think both of these cool names are the best 4-real!. J-Dub
Moving Fro Moving "to and fro" is a common expression. But just moving fro is rarely, if ever heard of. So what would it mean to move just fro but not to? D. Melody Dole, MD
Moving In Stereo It's a Cars song title. GlamRockNinjaLord
Mow and the Lawns Nerdfighters ;)dftba www.youtube.com/vlogbrothers  anna
The Mozart Underground Hehe Ok. My band almost used this one. Pretty Catchy eh? Bioman
Mozart's Ghost The name of a fictitious band mentioned in the film "The Net," described by a surfer-dude announcer as "The hottest band on the Internet." I figure as long as there are already instances of real life bands naming themselves after fictional ones (The Killers, for example), why shouldn't someone use THIS name? Jonathan S.
MPB (Mad Pit Bull) MPB sounds like MP3, me and my friends would try to insult the teachers by calling her a MPB (Mad Pit Bull) she'd ask what it meant and we'd tell her its an inside joke from a tv show and a mad pitbull would make a good cover for a CD and would make a good punk or metal band name. Chris
Mr E. and the Detectives It's so... Mr. E.-ous. Doyle
Mr Neutron According to a Monty Python sketch, the most feared man in all the universe. He is a gardener and decorator.  Rachal
Mr. C, My Number 2 My best friend (who had a boyfriend) had a crush on this guy, but she couldn't tell anyone (except me of course) so when she wrote me notes in which he was involved, she called him Mr. C My Number 2 because her boyfriends name also started with c... daphne
Mr. Ease Of Life Just a play on "mysteries of life", although life would be easier. Opie M.
Mr. Fahrenheit Queen's song "Don't Stop Me Now" contains the line, "Two hundred degrees, that's why they call me Mr. Fahrenheit." For some reason, the phrase stuck with me as a great band name. acidbrat
Mr. Happy Pants Mr. Happy Pants... hes happy Im happy youre happy we are all happy! What more do you need? Pigertaws
Mr. Happy's Magical Ride If the band had completely opposite-sounding music from the angelic name, that would be wicked! I actually got this name from a magazine that my bff made up and started. Nikki
Mr. Hate "Mr. Hate" is the title of a song the Tubes recorded in the '80s. I always thought it sounded like a cool name for a punk band. acidbrat
Mr. Holland's Orphase I can't spell. But just like the movie, Mr. Holland's Opus. Jeremiah
Mr. Lick  It kind of speak or licks for itself. The name itself came from my girl friend after 1 faithful night, if you know what I'm saying. David L. Williams
Mr. Menard's Mad My principal, Mr. Menard, is sort of cuckoo. My friends and I think that he thinks that he's Billy Fucillo, 'cause he's always sayin' "It's gonna be hu-u-u-u-uguh." (Please don't mind my spelling, it's one of the things I am not good at.) 300 Bernard St. Girl
Mr. Mofongo This is a name of a restaurant in Orlando where I go to college. I don't know what they serve but their name is funky ass hell and would be a good name for a group. pjam1379
Mr. Mute and The Graveyard Shift I was thinking of Me First And The Gimmie Gimmies when i just thought about Rancid's song Red Hot Moon and in th song it says something about a Graveyard shift tonight. Then I thought The misfits had something do do about Mr. Mute. Mr. Mute and the graveyard shift would be a cool punk band name Evan
Mr. Peanut Butter One of the main characters from 'Bo Jack Horseman'. He is a yellow anthro dog. The Mole
The Mr. Rons I love it. It was because of a village's post man. All the little kids called him Mr. Ron. He was fired from his post for posting a sausage in a letter box.  radio cambs
Mr. Saturn Yet another video game-based band name idea from Olvan The Terrible, this name comes from "Earthbound." They could be like They Might Be Giants or Weezer. Olvan The Terrible
Mr. Self Destruct It's the name of a Nine Inch Nails song. insert name here
Mr. Sparkle And The Rex Harrison Experience "simpsons" + "my fair lady" = fun mike, kevin, matt
Mr. Steak A weird name I was going to use for a comic book character, but decided not to... G
Mr. T I don't know why I think this would be a cool band name... my dog got it stuck in my head though. For some reason he freaks out and barks whenever we say that name. Apparently Mr. T pisses him off.  Elle

MTSX  Some friends and I were playing Balderdash, a (cool) game, and I looked up and saw a picture of manatee's holding hands. This made me write manatee sex down on the paper as the word's definition. Yah it was amazing and MTSX is just the abreviation. Sally

The Mudflaps Just looking for a name for a hillbilly band. hamtramckmike
Muerto Gokiburi  "Muerto" means "dead" in Spanish and "Gokiburi" means "Cockroach"! So this name, to Spanish and Japanese people, means dead cockroach! Awesome for a band The Mole
The Muffin Men (sings) Do you know the Muffin Men, the Muffin Men, the Muffin Men...that would be strangely amusing Bye-Gon Jinx
The Mugicians It is a portmanteau word, combining "musicians" and "magicians". Regina Haniger
Mugwump This is a term for a maverick if rather foolish person. Originally it was the surname of a Republican senator who always voted with the Democrats. My friend started calling me this after I fell on my head whilst a little over refreshed from an evening at our local hostelry, needing eight stiches and an enormous comedy turban like bandage. I like the name for a band as I gained my name fin a rock 'n' roll lifestyle way.  Kathy

Mullets in Action Just a nonsense name Mike Lydic
The Multijet Event A multijet is a pretty spectacular event in a Hadron-Hadron collison (e.g. in accelarators). Roughly spoken. Again, I am a physicist... Sabine
Multiple Nobodies We were thinking of naming ourselves "The Losers", but that's way to average. Instead we thought of something similar to the losers but would apply to everyone of the average life and that they could relate to without being offended. CSH
Mumblebee When I was around 7 years old, I was eating dinner with my family. Being so young, I mumbled my order. My brother then said, "Stop mumbling, you stupid mumblebee!"  Merlin
MumCanWe'aveARabbit Just heard it on a headache pill advert while reading this list! Matt
