Songs Where The Band Name Appears In A Song?

Everybody Have Fun Tonight, Wang Chung.

In a Big Country, Big Country.

A Murder of One, Counting Crows.

Any others?


  • Pretty much anything by Boston. "Who Are You?" by The Who. "Bad Company" by Bad Company.

    OK, really though. The only one I can think of is A Perfect Circle, who (the story goes) was nameless until they were waiting to go on stage before their first gig. They needed a name, so they randomly plucked a single line from a song. I don't know the song though.

    In other words, I can't help at all.

    Okay, when the band is actually talking about themselves it probably shouldn't count.

  • Great Big Sea took their name from a traditional song.

    "The Stray Cat Strut," the Stray Cats.

    "Killer Queen," Queen.

    Almost every cover band, but that probably doesn't count.

    Pretty much every hip-hop group ever, in pretty much every hip-hop song ever.

    And probably many, many more . . .
