Band Name Origins:

  • HUGE BTE fan here. I read (on their website, I'm pretty sure) that they changed their name to Better Than Ezra because they used to have a drummer named Ezra, and he quit, and once they replaced him, they became famous. Submitted by: ellz
  • Heard the band on LoveLines admit that another emerging group also named themselves Ezra. They thought the other group sucked so they renamed themselves Better Than Ezra to distinguish among club promoters. Submitted by: Alex

Stupid Band Names:

  • How the hell do they know they are better than Ezra? And what are they better at anyway? And why hasn't Ezra sued them for slander! Submitted by: George
