Possible Misspelled Names:

These are the alternate spellings of the performer's name we've had to correct in submissions to amIright.

Evenesence, Evanessence, Evanesence featuring Paul McCoy, Evanesence, Evanescence ft. Paul Mcoy

Band Name Origins:

  • Guitarist Ben Moody found the word. He suggested it as a name, saying that it was exactly how most bands out there are, being there and popular one minute and nothing the next. Apparently he didn't think they'd last, but the name stuck, and...they're still here! Submitted by: trinsa
  • The dictionary. Ben Moody (former guitarist) started looking in the E's 'cause he thought they could do some cool art with that and they found Evanescence-to disappate like vapor. Amy Lee (lead singer) says "it makes you think of a ghost". Submitted by: Ellie

"Bring Me To Life"

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"My Immortal"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
I tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone,
but though you're still with me I've been alone all along.
Why They're Inappropriate:
It either means that person went away but the memory remains and she wants to forget about it, or someone is paying no attention to her and she feels alone. I actually have no idea....
Submitted by: Fallenangel
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Watching me wanting me
I can feel you pull me down
Saving me raping me
Watching me
Why They're Inappropriate:
Umm.... raping me? Wanting me? Kind of obvious here? although evanescence is awsome, they went a little too far this time....

Mary had a lamb
His eyes black as coals
If we play very quiet, my lamb
Mary never has to know
Why They're Dirty:
Oh. My God. This is about the naughtiest thing I've ever heard out of Amy Lee's mouth. It seems as though she wants to 'play with her lamb'... oooh, you dirty girl. Clever metaphor, though.
Submitted by: Ashy
"Taking over me"
The Dirty Lyrics:
You don't remember me but I remember you
I lie awake and try so hard not to think of you
But who can decide what they dream?
And dream I do
Why They're Dirty:
It has to do with her man who abuses her and then shes finally gets away but is haunted by him in her dreams, not about anything dirty
