'We just wanted something that was kinda short and concise and wouldn't typecast us as any particular type of group' Peter said in 1984. Michaels explanation was more succinct, 'I wish we'd picked something we didn't have to explain all the time. We just like the dots".

So while the medical definition of R.E.M. is Rapid Eye Movement, I don't think thats what the band uses that acronym for...

EDGE, 182 is actually the police code for indecent exposure

The band name called Simple Plan, sucks.... it's just ***alicious. (I wonder if the censors will catch that???)

There are more but I'll post them later.

You do realise in an interview they admitted they only appended it because Blink was already taken. Would it be better if they'd used Blink666 instead? I think not.
