Band Name Origins:

  • As everyone knows, the Jacksons were all brothers named Jackson, who originally recorded as the Jackson 5. They considered changing their name to the Jackson 6 when youngest brother Randy joined the act. But then they left Motown Records, who owned the rights to the Jackson 5 trademark. It was simpler to change the name to change the band name to "The Jacksons." Ironically, Jermaine left the band as a result of the record deal with CBS, because he was married to the daughter of Motown's CEO, so there were still five brothers in the act. But the name "Jacksons" stuck. Submitted by: Tim Horrigan

Story about this misheard lyric by: Lisa

My sister and I were listening to this song, and I heard her singing something funny. I turned off the music to ask her what she was singing and she said "enjoy your sap!" and I asked "what do you mean by sap?" and she said "you know, like maple syrup!"
