Onde algumas bandas foram buscar o nome

por beatriz j a, em 29.03.15

 

 

... e onde se prova que a maioria não tem imaginação nenhuma...

 

 

ABBA 

An acronym for the first names of the band members: Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Anderson and Anni-Frid (Frida) Lyngstad. 

AC/DC - 
A band member saw AC/DC on a sewing machine. It stood for 'Alternating Current / Direct Current'. The band didn't realize it was also slang for bi-sexual, which caused a few misunderstandings in their early days. 

 

THE BEATLES

Original bassist Stuart Sutcliffe came up with the Beetles in 1960, which was a play on Buddy Holly's Crickets. John Lennon later altered the spelling to Beatals before meeting 19-year-old poet Royston Ellis who suggested B-E-A-T-L-E-S as a double play on both beat poetry and beat music. 

 

BEE GEES

Although the press often refers to them as the 'Brothers Gibb', the band said that they took their name from two friends that helped them out in their early days... Bill Goode and a disc jockey named Bill Gates. 

 

BOB DYLAN 
Robert Zimmerman was a big fan of poet Dylan Thomas. 

 

CLASH 

Taken from a newspaper headline describing 'A Clash With Police' 

 

COMMODORES 

In 1967, at Alabama's Tuskegee Institute, six students decided to merge two local bands, "the Mystics" and "the Jays". Legend has it, that one of the group members tossed a dictionary into the air, and when it landed, pointed to a random word on the page it opened to. The word was "Commodores". 

 

CRAZY HORSE 

Neil Young's long-time backup band took their name in homage to the Oglala Lakota Indian chief who fought to keep Europeans from settling in what would become the Western United States. 

CREEDANCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL
Originally called The Golliwogs, unconfirmed reports say the band took their new name from Norvel Creedence, a friend of band leader John Fogerty. John's favorite beer was called Clearwater, which, after it disappeared from the market for a time, was re-introduced by another brewery. The result: Creedence Clearwater Revival. 

 

DEEP PURPLE 

Guitarist Ritchie Blackmore's grandmother liked the Bing Crosby song "Deep Purple". 

 

DEPECHE MODE 

A Techno-Pop group from Basildon, Essex, England, they took their name from a French fashion magazine. 

 

DIE STRAITS

Their name describes the financial situation they were in when forming the band. 

 

DOORS 

The band took their name from the title of a book by Aldous Huxley, The Doors of Perception, which was in turn borrowed from a line in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, a poem by the 18th century artist and poet William Blake: "If the doors of perception were cleansed, every thing would appear to man as it is: infinite". 

 

THE EAGLES 

Their name was inspired by the Byrds, who were a big influence on the Eagles. They started out as the Teen Kings and later, the Emergencies. Don Henley recalled "we wanted something simple and we wanted something American and we wanted something that was easy to remember and something with a little spiritual value. (Eagles) sounded very American football teams and street gangs." 

 

ELTON JOHN 

Reginald Dwight took his stage name from two other British musicians, Elton Dean and Long John Baldry.
