Names -> Cool Band Names -> M, Page 7

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 Murder Rehearsal I was doing a school play when my drama teacher told us to practice the murder scene...hence "The Murder Rehearsal". I think it sounds really cool and also makes sense.  Guitarist #1
Murdershow  Tara D
Murdock's Minions Remember "the A - Team"? Always thought Murdock was a terrific Fictional name. This one has a great sound to it and it's easy to remember.  Gary Gray
Murray Shaftner What an elderly contestant on the game show "Family Feud" thought was a reporter on "60 Minutes" when asked by Richard Dawson. She must have been thinking of either Morley Safer or a Jewish "Star Trek".  news 8
Murray's Tractor It's so red-neck yokel hillbilly hippy back country hick. A bit like me in a way I guess. gareth
Murry and His Minions I was playing "The Curse of Monkey Island" (a Lucus Arts Computer game) and the character of Murry the Skull has me in stiches. A friend of mine then said perhapes Murry should have an army of other skulls to follow him - his minions, so to speak. It was then that we thought "Murry and his Minions" would be a great name for a 60's rock band, sort of in the vein of "Gerry and the Pacemakers". Or perhapes we were just being disturbing...  Mika
Muscular Thumbs i remember this bartender, big moosy dude, who could open beer bottles with his thumbs. i said to my buddy -- "to do that, you would need muscular thumbs". He said "that's a cool name for a band." Dane Janeiro

My little sister had a collection of teddybears, and we stole one and tied it to a post and set it up in front of all of our amps, drums, etc... we called our band the mutant teddybears for a while, but my mom threw a fit when she found out we stole my sisters teddy bear. o well. someone else can use the name now. Nick The Challenged
Mutated Flamingo This would hands down make the fans laugh their guts out of their ears. Ryan C.
Mutilated Death Monkeys My fellow band mates and I were driving along and we slowed down to go over railroad tracks. My mate noticed that there was something on the tracks. I looked and said that it looked like a mutilated monkey. On the ride to practice, we kept referring to the mutilated monkey on the tracks. However, Mutilated Monkey on the Tracks seemed a little long and it soon became Mutilated Death Monkeys. We wrote some rather funny songs and did a little weird side project. The rather funny part is that my mate and I were also in a Christian band at the time. Scott Drichel

That band got out of control, and now we're up to new stuff, still thinking of a cool name to use. Yep, so it's pretty exciting! Feel free to use our old name.
