    Name a band and then tell me how they made up thier band name and it has to be the real reason.

    Pink Floyd

    A member in the band loved ties and had a pink one he called folyd. Thus the name pink floyd.

    That's bullshit, it was made from the names of two of Syd Barrett's favourite blues singers, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council.

    Led Zeppelin......stolen from John Entwhistle and Kieth moon (or alledgedly given to them by Moon).....Entwhistle was planning to use the name for a band he was forming with Moon, the band never happened, obviously. Moon had originally used the phrase when talking to Paige, describing how his new band would go down :D

    They actually weren't going to use that name they were going to use a really long one i don't remember, but everybody started calling them that so they kept it.

    I'm pretty sure thats how it went, read it awhile ago though.

    Also the Grateful Dead came from a fable where a poor traveler spent his last money for the proper barial(sp?) of a pauper. Later the pauper came back in spirit form to thank him and he was called the grateful dead.

    Marduk, after the main Deity in ancient Babylon, especially during the time of the Kassites. Babylon was a hub of sin according to the christians, so a suitable name was born.

    The White Stripes

    I guess Meg had an obsession with peppermints, so the original name was supposed to be "The Peppermints" but I guess they decided to take the last name of "White" and add the peppermint-themed "Stripes"
