Boy George & Culture Club

Jokes:

Submitted by: Robert D. Arndt Jr.
 

Band Name Origins:

  • Boy George and Jon Moss say they came up with the name at random while brainstorming whatever dumb names popped into their head. It seemed to fit because they were a mix of cultures: a black man, a Jew, an Irish drag queen and a big old blonde Anglo-Saxon. However, the name might not be quite that random: English grammar school boys of George et al's vintage were required to choose a club (e.g., the Chess Club, the Photography Club, etc.) to join for a class period or two per week--- and the "Culture Club" traditionally attracted a disproportionate number of gay kids.
