We did consider the name 'Beetles,' but Jerry [Allison] said,
'Aw, that's just a bug you'd want to step on,'
so we immediately dropped that.
- Niki Sullivan
(Buddy Holly & The Crickets)

Band Name Origins:

  • Buddy Holly ( originally Holley, but he accepted the common mis-spelling ) misunderstood an agent's question as to the background in his songs, thinking it referred to the crickets that ended up on some recordings. "That's the crickets" he said, and that's how he got billed. Submitted by: John Malcolm
  • When the band was recording a song in Buddy Holly's garage, they played the tape back and discovered that a cricket was chirping in the background. Submitted by: Cletus Alreetus Alrightus
