My boyfriend and I were driving down the road the other day discussing the band KISS, and sort of joking about how people said it stood for all sorts of ridiculous things; he’d heard that it secretly meant Kids In Support (of) Satan, and I remember hearing that it stood for Knights In Satan’s Service.
And then we started talking about the idea that all bands or performers had to have names that were anagrams describing what they’re all about. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far, in no particular alphabetical order:
REM: Ha ha! No, not rapid eye movement but rather, Really Enigmatic Men
Prince: Petite Rocker Interweaves Nudity, Christianity, Electronics
(The) Kinks: Kinship Inspires Near Killing Spree
Phish: Phucking Hipsters In Sweaty Hemp
AC/DC: Angry Celts, Deliciously Crude
(The) Beatles: Bobblehead English Artists, Teens Love Endearing Smiles
Edith Piaf: Entertainer, Diminutive, Iron Throated Honey, Paris Is Appropriately Fascinated
More to come! All suggestions welcome.
PS: SORRY! If you got a link about “anagrams”. I originally sent this link out with the wrong word in the title–written after driving all day, no excuse, but still, that’s what happened–and corrected it as quickly as I could…but not until some of you had the wrong link. My apologies. I’ll be more careful in the future.
