Fun Music Information -> Adam and the Ants

This is the most recent information about Adam and the Ants that has been submitted to amIright. If we have more information about Adam and the Ants, then we provide a link to the section where it appears (the actual page whenever possible).

 
 

Band Name Origins:

  • After changing his name to Adam Ant, Adam added the "Ants" bit on as he said that ants were hard working and always stick together. That's what he'd like his band to be like. Submitted by: cat
  • It has nothing to do with the 'Atom Ant' cartoon. It's taken from the 1960's BBC TV series 'Adam Adamant Lives' about a dashing Edwardian crime fighter who was 'frozen in time' and revived in the 60's. Stuart Goddard (Adam Ant) was a big fan of the series as a kid. Submitted by: Klif Fuller

Stupid Band Names:

  • Ants are easily crushed by humans. (And) Adam And The Eves would have been more appropriate a name since they all were dressed in women's clothes and wore make-up. Submitted by: Aninny Mouse

Story about this misheard lyric by: The Macarena Sucks Whale Butt Bigtime!!!!!!!!!

In the 90s there was a yuppie 'country' song called 'Don't Rock the Jukebox' and it only served to amplify my mishearing of the song's lyrics. When this song was out and on MTV, I was just a teenager and it was all just fun'n'games. Good times. I didn't try to 'make sense' of a lot of it. After all, I love Duran Duran as well but have ever paid close attention to some their lyrics? STRANGE! In 1989 George Harrison had a hit with 'Cheer Down' (I dig that one too, but WTF?). 'Rock Me, Amadeus', 'Love Removal Machine', more, So much GOOD music at a more carefree time in my life, I didn't care if it made sense or not as long as its fun. As for 'Ant Music' - well, it's whatever Adam Ant does I guess. I've seen him on stage and he is energetic and WILD! So take it from there.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Antmusic"
The Funny Lyrics:
So unplug the jukebox
And do us all a favour
That music's lost its taste

Why They're Funny:
Seems to imply that the music *actually* tastes like something. Additionally, the last line is confusing in context.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Price Charming"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Price Charming, Prince Charming,
ridicule is nothing to be scared of
Why They're Repetitive:
Repeated about 9 times towards the end of the song, and being the whole point of the song, this line gets really annoying.
