Band Name Origins:

  • They couldn't decide a name and one of their friends wore a black T-shirt all the time and there was some other girl that was their friend and she called it the magnified plaid. The named their band that for a little while and then they were making a logo for it, and they had the m and the p and put two x's in the middle and called their band mxpx now. Submitted by: Heather :)
  • They were originally called Magnified Plaid. Yuri (the drummer) abbreviated the name for posters and in Yuri language, he uses x's instead of periods, hence MxPx. Submitted by: Jon Vander Plas

Stupid Band Names:

  • What's with the x's? Is this some kind of cover up, or is it because their music is x-tra lame. Actually, it's an abbreviation for Magnified Plaid, that name is stupid too. Submitted by: Marvin
