Band Name Origins:

  • One need look no further than the classic rockumentary, "The Last Waltz", where Richard Manuel shared the birth of the group's name. They actually pondered "The Crackers" as a choice! But they had been Bob Dylan's backup band and just went with "The Band." Submitted by: DN
  • They could think of nothing better to call themselves. Submitted by: Aaerni

Stupid Band Names:

  • Yes, we are completely aware that you are a band, now please come up with a less generic sounding thing to call yourselves! Submitted by: GlamRockNinjaLord
  • There are TONS of other bands, than this one. Submitted by: Mr. Critic
  • Come on, this is the most cocky, self-indulged name of all. I mean, it's like they're saying, "we're so great, we're not just A band, we're THE Band." Submitted by: Sondra
  • Just think about it. We know they are a band but they should come up with a more creative name. Submitted by: Daniel L

He had many popular solo hits in Canada, but oddly enough his big international hit 'Somewhere Down the Crazy River' was not a Top 40 hit in Canada" - whistledog

Misheard Lyrics:
Please, notify my next of kin, this WILL shall explode.
Original Lyrics:
Wheels on fire,
Rolling down the road.
Best notify my next of kin,
This wheel shall explode.

Story about this misheard lyric by: BRIAN D YOUNG

I always sang it like I see it in lyrics here online. "Best my next of kin, this wheel shall explode" BUT just singing in the shower I mistakenly (or did I) sing "Please, notify my next of kin, this WILL shall explode!" Think about it. It makes more sense.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Up On Cripple Creek"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
When I get off of this mountain, you know where I want to go?
Straight down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico
To Lake Charles, Louisiana, little Bessie, girl that I once knew
She told me just to come on by if there's anything that she could do
Why They're Nonsensical:
The city of Lake Charles, Louisiana, is not on the Gulf of Mexico. It is about 30 miles inland. It is also not on the Mississippi River.

The Lyrics:
When I get off of this mountain, you know where I want to go?
Straight down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico
To Lake Charles, Louisiana, little Bessie, girl that I once knew
She told me just to come on by if there's anything that she could do
Up on Cripple Creek, she sends me
Why:
Cripple Creek, Colorado; Mississippi River; Gulf of Mexico; Lake Charles, Louisiana

"Up on Cripple Creek"
The Lyrics:
When I get off of this mountain, you know where I want to go? Straight down the Mississippi river, to the Gulf of Mexico. To Lake Charles, Louisiana, little Bessie, girl that I once knew.
Why:
Lake Charles sits along Interstate 10 and is approximately halfway between Houston and Baton Rouge. It is home to casinos and many industrial plants. Incidentally, other lyrics in the song mention betting on horses; Delta Downs racetrack is in the town of Vinton, just about 25 miles west of Lake Charles along I-10. (The racetrack didn't exist when the song was written.) The actual Cripple Creek is in Colorado; the song completely misplaces it. (Lyrics copied from Wikipedia's entry on Lake Charles.)
