Stupid Band Names:

  • I know that the USA stood for United Support of Artist. But I did wonder back in 1985 and still do whether the continent of Africa really wanted the USA to be for them or not? Submitted by: Peter

Why:
USA For Africa was another temporary group who had a major #1 hit in the spring of 1985. USA For Africa was in response to the success of the British temporary group Band-Aid. USA For Africa was gotten together with the help of Quincy Jones after the Grammy awards. And on "We Are The World", that went on to huge success and would spur the original worldwide "Live Aid" concert in July of that year, would appear such artists as Bruce Springsteen, Cyndi Lauper, Michael Jackson, Dionne Warwick, Huey Lewis & The News, etc. The lyrics doesn't contain any references to any real places, including the continent of Africa, but the name of the group and the lp that came out of it, USA For Africa reference the United States Of America (USA), and the continent of Africa.
