Band Name Origins:

  • Was made up by Monty Python member Eric Idle for a sketch in 1980 called "Rock Notes." It was the most absurd name he could think up and was certain that no one else would ever use it. Years later in Los Angeles, he claims he nearly drove off the freeway" when he heard the name of the band announced on the radio. Submitted by: Jeff
  • From the first of three gossip stories from a wonderful Monty Python Routine called ROCK NOTES which made fun of the silly "music news" shows that were popping up on rock stations in the early 70s. The line is: Rex Stardust, lead electric triangle with Toad The Wet Sprocket has had to have an elbow removed following their recent successful worldwide tour of Finland. Flamboyant ambidextrous Rex apparently fell of the back of a motorcycle; fell off a motorcyclist most likely quipped ace drummer Jumbo McCloony on hearing of the accident. Plans are already afoot for a major tour of Iceland. Submitted by: Mark

Stupid Band Names:

  • I noticed that these words can't go together in a sentence. Toad is a noun, wet is an adjective and sprocket is a noun. A proper sentence would be verb, adjective then noun. Just to add some technicality to this. Submitted by: Travis
