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


Band Name Origins:

  • the band went from the project, to black revolver, then black velvet revolver, then velvet revolver. Scott said black revolve didnt fit as well as velvet and that black velvet revolver sounded like STP. Some think that the name has something to do with guns n' roses, like how a rose is velvety and a revolver is a gun, but thats just a coincidence Submitted by: T.J.
  • Two members of the band wanted the band name to be Velvet. The other two members wanted it to be Revolver. They experimented with names like Velvolver and Revelvet, but finally decided on Velvet Revolver. Submitted by: Jake

Stupid Band Names:

  • Fabric + Gun = One Crappy Weapon! Submitted by: Travis
  • I like their music, but, come on...a gun made out of cloth?? I can't imagine that being too reliable of a weapon. (Or maybe the name is meant in the same context as Limp Bizkit...You know, reffering to a certain part of the body? If that's the case, then it's disturbing!) Submitted by: Jonathan S.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

The Lyrics:
the sins of you and I
"the sins of you and I" is using the subjective personal pronoun as the object of the preposition "of". The proper usage is the objective personal pronoun "me". The lyric should read, "the sins of you and me".
