Fun Music Information -> Finger Eleven

This is the most recent information about Finger Eleven that has been submitted to amIright. If we have more information about Finger Eleven, then we provide a link to the section where it appears (the actual page whenever possible).


Band Name Origins:

  • It's when you are flipping someone off with both hands. Makeing a eleven with your middle fingers. At least that is what the band said in an interview on 94.1 JJO. Submitted by: Kyle Brooks
  • There is this disorder in which humans have six fingers (including their thumb) on their hands instead of five. So if you have six fingers on one hand and five on the other, the extra finger is none other than "Finger Eleven." Submitted by: Alan the Ottoman

Stupid Band Names:

  • One only has ten fingers. Submitted by: Dongquan
  • Makes me think that someone in this band wished they had an extra digit on one hand. Creepy!! Submitted by: Evan Shortoria
  • A normal person doesn't have 11 fingers. Submitted by: Mr. Critic

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"One Thing"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
If I traded it all
If I gave it all away for one thing
Just for one thing
If I sorted it out
If I knew all about this one thing
Wouldnt that be something

It seems like one thing is the only thing they sing about, albeit repeatedly.
Submitted by: newrock

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Well I'm not paralyzed but I seem to be struck by you.
I wanna make you move because you're standing still.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Swallow Tail"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Open mouth feels warm, secrets swollen, so sore.
Why They're Misrhymed:
At one point I thought the line was "Open mouth fuels war," which would rhyme and made sense and was rather poetic in a sense, but alas, I was wrong.
Submitted by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe
"One Thing"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Even though I know, I don't wanna know, yea I guess I know, I just hate how it sounds.....If I traded it all, if I traded it all away for one thing wouldn't that be something
Why They're Misrhymed:
someone should tell this band that repeating the exact same word like know and all doesn't constitute rhyming
Submitted by: Bob
There are additional misrhymed lyrics available.

Insulting Song Lyrics:

"Walking in My Shoes"
The Insulting Lyrics:
I would tell you about the things they put me through,
the pain I've been subjected to,
but the Lord himself would blush.
Why They're Insulting:
The fact that the person in question is actually saying that what he went through is worse than someone who's been tortured, mocked, and crucified, left to die comes across as very self-righteous and extremely obnoxious. (p.s., this was originally a Depeche Mode song)
Submitted by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

The Inappropriate Lyrics:
When we collapse, our weakened hands fall together at once abandoned. they'll force you down, and strap you in. now we agree and understand.
Why They're Inappropriate:
For some reason they have to throw in that last line, for measure, unless they're going over some procedure that involves suffocating each other....
