Quotes:

You got to find somebody to love... Yeah!
Submitted by: charbushor
But the situation was very open and very Renaissance-like - a Leonardo da Vinci kind of time, in the sense of just opening up all those arts and letters and hedonism and sex-drugs-rock'n'roll and freedom. It's the American ideal gone bonkers.
- Paul Kantner

Band Name Origins:

  • While it is the above is true, that has nothing to do with them choosing their name. Jefferson Airplane was named by guitar player Jorma Kaukonen in relation to a friend of his who gave people strange nick-names and Jorma's was "Blind Thomas Jefferson Airplane" (Based on "Blind Lemmon Jefferson") The others were trying to think of a band name that sounded "silly" enough to work and this was what came up.

  • A Jefferson Airplane is when you pinch a marajuana roach around two paper matches as an improvised roach clip. Submitted by: Chuck Saint

"Jorma Kaukonen""After escaping one of the Bay area's most over-rated group's (and suffering through one-too-many of Marty Balin's legendary menstrual mood swings), Jorrma and Jack Cassidy founded Hot Tuna. Peace of mind and a restraining order were the direct result." - prince jellyfish

"White Rabbit"I always thought that the title of this was "Go Ask Alice" ... anyway, they mention the "White Knight", and "when you're chasing rabbits", but no mention of white rabbits in the song. - Edgedraw
"White Rabbit"Full of references to Lewis Carroll's "Alice" books, this song could be called "Go Ask Alice" because it's the most-recognized line in the song. - crazydon

Misheard Lyrics:

"Somebody To Love"
Misheard Lyrics:
Your mind is so full of red
Original Lyrics:
Your mind is so full of dread
"Somebody to Love"
Misheard Lyrics:
Don't you need some bodily love
Original Lyrics:
Don't you need somebody to love
"Volunteers"
Misheard Lyrics:
Quality is of America

We're volunteers of America.
"Somebody to Love"
Misheard Lyrics:
When the garden flowers
Feed your dead, yes
And your mind, your mind
Is so full of bread

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Lather"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
But wait! Ol' Lather's productive, you know.
He produces the finest of sound,
Putting drumsticks on either side of his nose,
snorting the best licks in town.
But that's all over.
Why They're Nonsensical:
This is just a sampling of Jefferson Airplane. They were the most drugged up band of the hippie era. These people are probably hideously radioactive by now from all the crack and acid they took over the decades.
Submitted by: Death_Zero
"White Rabbit"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving slow
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know
Why They're Nonsensical:
How can you be sure that Alice will know about a person's mind going slowly? And are you sure that some kind of mushroom would have an effect on this?
Submitted by: Nick
