15 Bands Who Were Named after Songs

Rolling Stones Launch Event To Celebrate 50th Anniversary

Sometimes it can be really fun to try to figure out how a band got their name, or what that name means. Sometimes, the name of the band can allude to the type of music they made (for example, Mudhoney made grunge, garage rock, and the name represents that. Nine Inch Nails made heavy industrial, and the name represents that). But sometimes, bands were very much inspired by other bands and other songs when it came to naming their own bands. Some do it as an homage, some do it as a way of giving thanks to those who inspired them, and some just do it because it’s catchy. Here are fifteen bands who were named after songs (from other bands).
