The Band or the Song?

We need to talk about music.

Here’s a fun, pointless inventory game. Name artists who took their name from the lyrics or titles of other songs. Pretty straightforward.

For example:

Radiohead – “Radio Head” The Talking Heads

Slowdive – “Slowdive” Siouxsie and the Banshees

Motörhead – “Motorhead” Hawkwind

Eric’s Trip – “Eric’s Trip” Sonic Youth
