Band Name Origins:

  • They wanted an American sounded name, they stuck a pin in a map of the USA and it ended up near Bay City, Michigan. On the map had the words "Rollers" to discribe the waves of Lake Michigan. This was told to me by the manager Tam Paton and Ian Mitchell one of the former band members whom I am married to. As least this is one story I heard that seemed to never change as so many of them have. Submitted by: Wendy-Ann Antanaitis
  • Saw the interview on American Bandstand: The band had fallen in love with San Francisco, being the first place they had visited in California (a cool place compared to native Scotland) and had seen the locals roller skating. Impressed by both Frisco and skating they took the name Bay City Rollers.. Submitted by: 2much time and trivia

Story about this misheard lyric by: Cath

I swear this is what I heard. However, I did not share it with anyone. Some friends and I were driving and this song came on. I asked, "What are they singing?" Of course EVERYONE said, "S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y night!". I refused to tell them what I thought they sang until years later!
