Possible Misspelled Names:

These are the alternate spellings of the performer's name we've had to correct in submissions to amIright.

Match Box 20

Band Name Origins:

  • MB20's drummer, Paul Doucette, used to be a waiter. One day, this guy walked into the restaurant where Paul worked, wearing this shirt that had the number 20 on it, and all these patches. The only one he could really read said "matchbox". He thought "matchbox 20" sounded cool together and would make an excellent name for a clothing line. Other names the band was considering: "Joanie Loves Chachie" and "Big Shoe Spiders". Submitted by: dearjoan

Stupid Band Names:

  • Well, I love the band, but what is the name supposed to mean? Is it... 1) The number of match boxes Rob Thomas uses per diem to light their cigarettes? 2) The number on the side of the little toy MatchBox racecar? 3) Instructions for a game show? (Match box 20 to win $[x],000 and a trip for two to Florida!) Submitted by: Cerulean

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

Gotta give it up to get off sometimes

Good song, but I think Rob needs to give up singing this lyric-- it's repeated 6 times in a row, twice.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"3 A.M."
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Says the rain's gonna wash away, I believe it
Why They're Nonsensical:
In order for something to wash away, it must be swept up in a stream of water. Therefore it is physically impossible for rain to wash away, as a stream of water would only create more rain.
