Ongoing History Daily: More band name origins
Here are more stories behind the names of some popular groups.
- Lovelytheband originally wanted to be called just “Lovely,” but soon found out someone else had dibs on that name. It was decided to go with “Lovelytheband” over big plates of chicken wings.
- The name “Coin” came about when the band finally found the one-word name they were looking for. Actually, they took it from the name of a friend’s horse who was named “Lucky Coin.”
- Metric has nothing to do with units of measurement. They got that from the name of a pre-set on one of their synthesizers.
- And “Milky Chance” doesn’t really mean anything. The guys just brainstormed some word combinations until they came up with something they liked.
Yesterday’s Ongoing History Daily post told the story behind Live’s “Lightning Crashes.”
