Band Name Origins:

  • Their EP, featuring Queen of the Reich was released and it took off, so the band, pressed for time, had to decide on a name. Queensryche was created from the song title, and the name has stuck ever since. Contrary to a comment elsewhere on, it has nothing to do with a gay dictatorship. Submitted by: Stu Cazzo

Stupid Band Names:

  • I have no idea how to pronounce this and I've even heard radio DJs admit they have the same problem! Submitted by: GlamRockNinjaLord
  • The spelling never looks right. Furthermore, it sounds like some kind of gay dictatorship. Submitted by: Chris

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Spreading the Disease"
The Dirty Lyrics:
16 and on the run from home
found a job at Times Square working live S&M shows
25 bucks a f**k and John's a happy man
She wipes the filth away and is back on the streets again, spreading the disease
Why They're Dirty:
She's a teenage prostitute. I needn't say anything more.

Scary Song Lyrics:

"Suite Sister Mary"
The Lyrics:
The priest is cold and dead, on his knees he fell
(from my barrel of death, he turned)
The holy water red, as he died he said,
"Thank you", I just watched him bleed.
This dude just murdered a corrupt priest in cold blood, and the way Geoff sings this makes it sound incredibly dramatic and much scarier.
