Band Name Origins:

  • After briefly considering ABCD, they chose The Human League, a name taken from a science-fiction board game called "Star Force". Martyn Ware: "There were all these scenarios in the back for various wars in the future, and one of these, for a stage 'round about 2180, where there were two main empires - The Pansantient Hegemony and The Human League. The Human League centred around Earth and the scenario was called The Rise Of The Human League. So we stole it." (source: http://blindyouth.co.uk/) Submitted by: Eric Svoboda

Story about this misheard lyric by: Kent Owl

Human League are a Sheffield band. Phil Oakey supported Sheffield Wednesday. Sheffield Wednesday call Sheffield United "The Pigs". If you actually listen carefully to the end of the track you will hear the sound of a pig grunting behind the very final lines of the song. Of course it would have been too inflammatory to include "pig boy fan" in the lyrics and may have lost a lot of local (Sheffield) fans.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Don't You Want Me?"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Don't you want me, baby?
Why They're Nonsensical:
This line could also go under the repetitive category, but it's nonsensical because if you have to ask that question to someone, they don't want you. Especially if in the context of the song, it implies that the person doesn't want him (which seems to be the case here).

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"Don't You Want Me"
Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones had an affair with Russian art student Ekaterina Ivanova. He left his wife of 20+ years for her. She was moonlighting as a waitress in a cocktail bar when he met her. However, his crazy antics due to alcoholism and possibly cocaine use scared her away. Note, I said SHE WAS WORKING AS A WAITRESS IN A COCKTAIL BAR - isn't that scenario right out of a Human League classic hit? It's so TRUE TO LIFE, isn't it - and I just mentioned a Roxy Music song here as well! ; )
