Fun Music Information -> Stone Roses

This is the most recent information about Stone Roses that has been submitted to amIright. If we have more information about Stone Roses, then we provide a link to the section where it appears (the actual page whenever possible).


Band Name Origins:

  • The band took their name from a 1959 spy thriller of that title by Sarah Gainham. It was published in the UK in 1971 as mass market paperback and one of the band members owned a copy, think it was John Squire. Submitted by: Michael Daly
  • A contradiction: The Stone Roses could write the most fantastic rock song and the sweetest ballads so they picked two words which contradicted each other Stone (Hard) Roses (Soft) - Led Zep have the same thing going on, but I don't know if that was the reason behind their name.

1) Walking down the hill for 15 days
2) Fools gold
3)These boots are made for walking
Why They're Nonsensical:
1) Fifteen whole days! (2 weeks 1 day)! A long time walking down the hill, eh!
2) What does 'Fools gold' mean?
3) Of couse the boots are made for walking! What do you think they're made for, sleeping on?

I'm hiding in the trees with a picnic

Backwards Messages:

"Don't Stop"
If you play this song backwards you can make out some lyrics from the previous song on the album, "Waterfall". This is because the song "Don't Stop" uses the backing track of "Waterfall" reversed.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Low budget videos"
The first video that the Stone Roses did was a low budget video for Love Spreads. The lead singer Ian Brown decided to lean this way because he didn't want to lipsync to the vocals.
