Band Name Origins:

  • The lead singer of the band, Benjamin Burnley and he ex-drummer of the band, Jeremy Hummel, founded this band. When performing at a local show, Benjamin broke the microphone after he finished singing. Thus, the name came up. 2 memebers from Lifer joined the band. Then it changed its name to Plan 9. It didn't work very well, and Jeremy Hummel left the band and slapped a federal lawsuit on the remaining band members claiming that he wasn't paid for the songs he helped write. The band then changed their name back to Breaking Benjamin. Submitted by: cR@zYfR0gE$$
  • They were never, ever called Strangers With Candy. Strangers With Candy became Driver then Lifer. Then members of SWC migrated the Breaking Benjamin who used to be Plan 9. Submitted by: STRANGER4LIFE

Stupid Band Names:

  • It sounds like someone is trying to break poor Benjamin in half. I heard this name and I wanted to do that too. Submitted by: Travis
  • Shattering some poor guy's bones isn't my idea of a cool band name. Submitted by: Jonathan S.

Song Titles Not Used as Lyrics:

Song Name
Comments & Submitter Name
"Topless"Seriously, what is this song even about? The word 'topless' isn't mentioned, and to my knowledge, the song has nothing to do with people with no shirts on... "I loathe your face, just get away. I'm on my knees, f**k you, f**k me." is the chorus...so i should be called something like "Loathe You" or "Hatred" or something...but topless?!? - Weily_Coyote

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Topless"
The Dirty Lyrics:
I love your face, just get away
I'm on my knees, f**k you, f**k me
Why They're Dirty:
This goes without explaining.
Submitted by: carly_carlz
"Polyamorous"
The Dirty Lyrics:
'My polyamorous friend
he got me in a mess of trouble again'
'just stay away from the white light
I'd say your worst side's your best side'
Why They're Dirty:
Well I've always sort of aligned the song as a little dirty after all it does SEEM to be about getting in trouble as the result of a fling. But I have a couple of friends that love this song and totally throw my view out the window. I dunno, I just started realizing that polyamorous friend was probably a metaphor for his appendage and well most guys' I know are lead around by their penis and reason tends to go out the window when it's awake. Then getting to the line about the white light and your worst side. It sounds like it's about what happens after a guy has an orgasm and suddenly realization of what they've done and guilt comes into play. And if the song didn't have those metaphors it'd be bit more dirty. But Yeah, it's dirty because of that.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Water"
The Lyrics:
I never wanted nothing from you, yes I do, yes I do
Why:
Never wanted nothing is a double negative...And even if he meant to say "I wanted something from you," he should have then said "yes I did," not "yes I do." It's a double fail...does that make it a success?
