    Default Airmon-ng MAC troubles

    I'm trying to spoof my mac address for when I use aircrack, And I can change the mac address with macchanger, But macchanger only changes my mac for wlan0, and when I start wlan0 again, it sets up mon0 as the monitor interface, but mon0 uses my default mac address instead of the spoofed one.
    I basically set it up like this...
    airmon-ng stop wlan0
    macchanger --mac ##:##:##:##:##:## wlan0
    airmon-ng start wlan0
    wlan0 keeps the spoofed mac while mon0 uses the default.
    I've tried using macchanger --mac ##:##:##:##:##:## mon0, but that doesn't work.
    Any ideas?

    You need to bring mon0 down before you can change the MAC address:

    ifconfig mon0 down && macchanger -a mon0 && ifconfig mon0 up
