Band Name Origins:

  • When forming these letters with the thumb and forefingers of both hands, this forms a square - L7 is a 50's slang term for "a square" Submitted by: Jay
  • Put the L and the 7 together and they (sort of) form a square. In Sam The Sham & The Pharoahs' "Woolly Bully" one line goes "Let's don't take no chance. Let's not be L-seven, come and learn to dance." Submitted by: Darryl Wilson

Stupid Band Names:

  • I know they probably liked that the name more or less looks the same upside-down as it does right-side-up. The trouble is that, as far as I know, L7 DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING. It's not even a position on a Battleship board. Submitted by: Jonathan S.
