Possible Misspelled Names:

These are the alternate spellings of the performer's name we've had to correct in submissions to amIright.

Ace Of Bace

Band Name Origins:

  • The band's first studio was in the basement of a car repair shop, and they considered themselves to be the "masters" of the studio. "Ace of Base" was retrieved from "masters of the basement". Submitted by: Robert D. Arndt Jr.

Stupid Band Names:

  • Sounds like a playing card in a rejected suit. Submitted by: C.J.
  • For a long time I heard of them without seeing the spelling and thought their name meant they were adept at music in the bass range or on some kind of instrument called "bass" because of its low pitch. Then I saw their name in print and found out that it is "Ace Of BASE", not "Ace Of BASS". I've never figured out what that might mean as relating to music. Sounds like it might refer, perhaps, to chemistry or something else instead. But in chemistry, a base is something that exists in contrast to an acid. And the neutralizing or countering reactions between the two are of key importance in regard to either. So it wouldn't make much sense to think in terms of any chemist mastering one outside of the context of the other. Submitted by: Carmen Stokes

Vainity Songs:

Song Name
Comments & Submitter Name
"My Mind (Mindless Mix)"From the classic "Happy Nation/The Sign" album. Jenny says, "Ace Of Base is in your mind. Io! Dance...". This album scored a lot of hits and is one of the few from the mid 90s that's just sweet cheerful fun. Good but never icky. - Jeffy

a parody of "All That She Wants" by Ace of Base
Manny Ramirez was recently suspended for 50 games for taking a fertility drug -- something most men do not have to take. Upon investigation, the real truth comes out why he really was taking them. Special thanks to Greg Hoffman for telling me to do this as Manny Ramirez instead of in third person. Makes a world of difference.

"The Sign"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I saw the sign,
and it opened up my eyes,
I saw the sign.
Why They're Nonsensical:
You say you saw something, and it opened up your eyes? Wouldn't your eyes already be opened if you saw this thing? I really like this song, but I'm a bit confused by the wording.
