Simple.

I pick a band/group and you guys have to tell me where they took their name from (with proof). Whoever answers correctly first must provide the next band.....etc....etc...

The band/group needs to be at least mildly popular, to make the thread possible.



For starters: The Futureheads

I'm assuming it's from the Gang of Four who executed the Cultural Revolution in China?

Okay don't cry :D

Are we needing a band?

I thinks... Joy Division. This is a, uhm, good one...
They were the group of women/prostitutes used by Nazis in the camps...

To add for CYHSY:

"We got our first show and we didn't have a name. We saw Clap Your Hands Say Yeah painted really big on a wall in Brooklyn. It became our name."

-Tyler Sargeant
Next one - Belle & Sebastian

-Dan
