The Comodores

Band Name Origins:

  • After trying for weeks to come up with a name for the band, the members all agreed to throw open a dictionary and the first word they pointed to would be there name. Lionel Richie said, "Just think...We were just a few words away from being the Comodes! Submitted by: Rick McCreight

Comments & Submitter Name
"Lionel Richie""The Commodores were unbelievably great. I wonder though, after Richie started to become famous with his own creations, how much of the Commodores have in reality been Richie, all the time. Our retrospect is forcibly distorted, but imagining Lionel Richie as "simply" the lead-singer in a band, be it a group like the Commodores, looks like an impossibility, to me." - Athletic Ears
"Lionel Richie""He wasn't even the lead singer for the Commodores when he left them." - soul ii

Story about this misheard lyric by: Linda
