thyclaine, dint greenday get their name from a teachers insult?

Anyway, Manic street preachers is pretty much right, Despite being a big fan I have no idea if RHCP is right, and Oasis is sort of right. Basically Noel Gallagher gatecrashed Liam Gallaghers band (called The Rain) and told them they were changing the name to oasis. dunno where he got the idea from tho.

Archers Of Loaf
It basically means nothing, but they make up things to fool people.

U2
German Spy Plane. Used to be called Feedback and Hype, but their manager suggested U2 would sell more records.

Huh?

Green Day
They were called Sweet Children before they named themself after one of their songs. A green day is a day where you smoke a lot of weed.

Duh.

They didn't have most of the bands that I put in. However, they had Less Than Jake, and that's a pretty cool story.

I think it's the war plane one, a lot of people say it's an imigration form, but UB40's name comes from an unemployment form, and maybe they got them both confused.... maybe.
