Apropos of nothing: previous names of 20 famous bands

23 May

In alphabetical order. No idea why I did this. A few are kind of interesting, maybe?

Aerosmith — The Bananas
Beach Boys — The Pendletones
Beatles — The Quarrymen
The Bee Gees – Wee Johnny Hayes & The Bluecats
Black Eyed Peas – Atban Klann
The Clash – Weak Heartdrops
Coldplay — Pectoralz
Creed — Naked Toddler
Doobie Brothers — Pud
Journey — Golden Gate Rhythm Section
Lemonheads – The Whelps
Live – Body Odor Boys
Metallica — MetalMania
Nirvana — Pen Cap Chew
Pearl Jam — Mookie Blaylock
Pink Floyd — Leonard’s Lodgers
Radiohead – On A Friday
Red Hot Chili Peppers — Tony Flow & the Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem
R.E.M. — Negro Wives
Replacements — Dogbreath
The Who — The Confederates

Creed is my favorite, but Nirvana is a close second. No way we wistfully mourn the early demise of a band called Pen Cap Chew, right?
