Band Name Origins:

  • The name was originally the band's name, and not Don Van Vleit's alone. It was probably given to them by Frank Zappa, as everyone in the band had strange names. Don later said it meant "he always had a beef in his heart" towards the human race. Submitted by: james thornton
  • Actually it's because Don's uncle had a party trick where he used to take out his penis and squeeze it so hard that it turned bright red. He did it in front of Don once and said "look at that boy! Doesn't it look like like a big old beefheart?" Source: Never Mind the Buzzcocks - Band Names round Submitted by: Davey

But it's all right god dug your dance
