Five For FIghting

Band Name Origins:

  • The lead singers mother walked in on the boys while they were wrestling (yeah right) on the beds (they set them up in the room like WWF) (this was a sin in this household), she couldn't think of anything to say as she was in such disgust , she pointed at her son, pointed outside and said 'five for fighting' - the boys cracked up and it stuck. Submitted by: Jayle
  • The members of the band liked hockey and one day were playing when two of them got in a fight. The lead singer was one of them and his friends gave him five minutes in the penalty box for fighting. They just picked the name from that. Submitted by: tbuck

Stupid Band Names:

  • I initially thought it was a quintet whose members were all in favor of battles (hence the name), but it turns out it's only a one-man band, and the term has to do with something totally different. Submitted by: Mac
  • 1) It's not even a band, it's just one person. 2) His fake name doesn't even pertain to the sappy songs he writes and performs. Submitted by: American Drool

Music Performer Pseudonyms:

Also known as: John Ondrasik. Submitted by: The Smell of Hell

Also known as: John Androsic. Submitted by: Adia
