Do you know any artists that are named after another band’s songs or lyrics? If so, feel free to share!

 

The name of one my favorite bands, Mars Red Sky, was inspired by a lyric from a song by the band Sleep, called “Dragonaut”:

I’m curious to hear if anyone else is familiar with other examples of this.

 

Cheers!

Seether got their name from Veruca Salt’s song “Seether” after dropping the Saron Gas name.
