It's not that often that a band names themselves after a song from another artist but it DOES happen.


Yeah, which band would name themselves after this song?


Yup, the band known world over for "Radar love" was originally called Golden Earrings, after that Peggy Lee song. I chose a song of their with their original Lead singer Frans Krassenburg because after he left Golden Earrings (and the band dropped the S from their name) He chose to cover the song the band was named after.

Flock of Seagulls is named after a line in the Stranglers song Toiler On The Sea. So the story goes, at a Stranglers show, Hugh Cornwell pointed into the audience as he sang that line. A group of friends there thought that we was pointing straight at them, so they named their band Flock of Seagulls.
