I owe, I don't pay, and I refuse while I can. It's so much fun in portuguese. In fact, the name "Devo" comes "from their concept of 'de-evolution' - the idea that instead of evolving, mankind has actually regressed, as evidenced by the dysfunction and herd mentality of American society."

Rate:


With his exaggerated way of criticizing everybody, I'm almost sure death to them was conspiracy of Robocop gay!
Rate:


In this band, none of the seven members have these names. Why they then? The name Belle & Sebastian is inspired by Belle et Sébastien, a children's book by French writer Cécile Aubry.
Rate:
Average listal rating (55 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 0


And I thought that only in Brazil had this story to mourn the sorrows singing. But it is much worse.

But with the voice of the singer I believe only if a relationship with a lumberjack Of Montreal.

One day someone asked Paul McCartney if he was jealous of any music and he said that, if it could be, The Beatles would have written 'God Only Knows'. Mick Jagger was talking in the U.S., that the rival of the Stones weren't The Beatles, but The Beach Boys. Good Guys!

Use me and abuse me.
Rate:


The official announcement of the band's first show was: "The Western Club presents shamefully Paralamas do Sucesso. Rock." I don't know why, because to me they're the only 'Splashguard' of success."

Rate:


Despite the name, Eagles of Death Metal is not a death metal band. So they cheat everyone. Very shrewd this name!
Rate:


I don't have an explanation, description or joke for this band. But Miguel likes this name, and I trust him

How about Iron Butterfly
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Jun 6 7:43
Iron Butterfly was to suggest there Heavy Music (Iron) in contrast to their lighter pieces (Butterfly).

ZZ Top - taken from 2 bluesmen they admired. ZZ Hill and BB King. Instead of being ZZ King, they decided the King was at the top, so it became ZZ Top.

Village People dressed as gay stereotypes. The Village implied is Greenwich Village, where the Bohemiens and counter-culture types congregated, so these are the people of the (Greenwich) Village.

The Hollies took their name from one of their influentual idols, Buddy Holly.

I don't beleive in all these names having Satanic origins, although I know a few did. I think AC/DC was in reference to the power source and I doubt seriously that Kiss intended their name to be satanic. It seems like there is a satanic explanation for every rock band that ever existed.

How did the Yardbirds name come about?

America was formed by 3 American sons of military parents stationed in England.

What about Three Dog Night?

Was Steppenwolf named for the novel by Herman Hesse?

I have heard 3 different stories about how the name Alice Cooper came about. 2 of them from the lead singer, Alice, himself.
1- It came up on a ouija board
2- It was the name of a 17th century witch
3- It sounded innocent, so it was for the shock factor of seeing a deranged clown with a boa constricter when you were expecting a young blonde folksinger.

The Beatles were either in tribute to Buddy Holly's The Crickets, or they wanted to show they were a beat band as in BEATles.

The Rolling Stones took their name from a favorite Bluesman's song. Muddy Waters' "Rolling Stone Blues".

blankend, I don't beleive in all these bands names having Satanic origins either! Thank you for all your suggestions!
