|Talking about band names is like dancing about architecture.
as we say here in Austria.
Or should I better say: Yahoo!
However, my little site is being listed on Yahoo Picks under April 24, 2003.
Here is what they wrote about it:
||On 8 May 2003, this site was chosen as Website Of The Day in the BBC's Steve Wright Show
to the wonderful world of band names. Over the last years, I collected various explanations of band names.
I found out that a lot of bands tend to take their names from movies and actors, records and songs, books and writers or
things that happened to them in their childhood. Other sources are cities and places, famous personalities and myths/religion. This is
why I decided to split the names up in several categories. Plus, you will find a list of abbreviations.
N*E*R*D, for example, stands for "Noone Ever Really Dies". Dimmu Borgir is Icelandic for "Black
Castle". Portishead were named after a small town next to Bristol, England. And Duran Duran
took their name from the villain in the movie "Barbarella".
If something's missing, then please...
