Band Name Origins:

  • One day, while Layne was walking, he spotted this dog chained to a doghouse. Layne named her Alice. So there you go, Alice In Chains. Submitted by: Glenn Rousseau
  • The band Alice in Chains got its name origin from the legendary King of ShockRock Alice Cooper, who was a big inspiration. Alice Cooper's theme dark, spooky, scary, gory, & terrifying was were "Alice" came from, then the "in Chains" part come from their own dungeon, all alone, trapped, no fear, mid evilish theme. So "Alice" is for Alice Cooper & "in Chains" means dungeons & mid evil theme. Submitted by: Sydnei Nicole Frank

Stupid Band Names:

  • Oh come on.....like Alice needs any more problems..... she already had her own "adventure" in Alice In Wonderland, why does she need to be in chains? Submitted by: Zakery Wood

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"Love Song"
Hidden at the end of Sap, the song goes on for about three minutes. All the band members switched instruments with drummer Sean Kinney singing through a megaphone, and playing piano, singer Layne Staley playing drums, guitarist Jerry Cantrell on bass and bassist Mike Starr playing guitar. Starting off with Sean saying "love song, take one" and very strange crooning along with snorting noises and fart sounds, it turns into what sounds like thrash metal with lyrics like "I love you, I'm not coming back, bitch" and "kiss the midget". Anyone who saw them on the headbangers ball knew they were a bunch of goofballs, this just proves it even more.
