13 Bands That Knew You Need A Song Explaining Your Band Name

Bad Company, Wang Chung, Big Country… these bands all knew that until you wrote a song explaining your band name… you weren't a real band.

A webcomic with pandas and robots and stuff.

The Rolling Stones - Like a Rolling Stone.
-Granted, it was a Dylan cover that they didn't write and didn't sing until 1994 and it was highly ironic, but still pretty significant in the name stakes. ^_^

Queen - Killer Queen.
Again, that's pretty big stuff.

The Who - Who are you
More rock titans.

Rammstein - Ramstein
Made of raw, pure, awsomonium.

Devo - We are Devo
Nerdy.

—————
I know another!
Icehouse - Icehouse
…It was written back when they still called themselves “the Flowers”, but they changed it soon after. :)

Iron Maiden–“Iron Maiden.”

Manowar–“Manowar.” They also include their name in a lot of songs as well as refer to themselves as the “four metal kings” and their albums as “magic circles.” Although I love 'em, I doubt that they should be in a Top 13 Bands list–but since you put Devo in here, Manowar similarly fits!

And–heh heh–how about “Ice Ice Baby. Vanilla Ice Ice Baby”?

“They Might Be Giants” by They Might Be Giants

“Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nothin' To Fuck With” by The Wu-Tang Clan

“Black Sabbath” by Black Sabbath

“Miles Ahead” by Miles Davis

Damn, I know I have more than that but I'm having a brain fart…

Slayer had a song called “Face the Slayer”, but they aren't really well known for that song.
