Possible Misspelled Names:

These are the alternate spellings of the performer's name we've had to correct in submissions to amIright.

D12 (feat. Eminem), D-12

Band Name Origins:

  • The D in D-12 does stand for dirty, and of course another way to say twelve is "dozen". But there are only six members in the group. So how do you get 12, you ask? Easy, each member has an alter ego. Submitted by: Combat Joe
  • This is a reply to NameMaster: They did not pick their name because they had 12 dogs. It stands for Dirty Dozen. Submitted by: Tarquin

Stupid Band Names:

  • It is short for "The Dirty Dozen", but it would be more fitting if it was "The Dirty Half-Dozen" since there are six members. Also, it is a nickname for NBA player Dwight Howard. Submitted by: JeReMy
  • Sounds like 1) An isotope of an element on the periodic table or 2) A less expensive joint lubricant, like WD-40. Submitted by: Vick M

Why They're Nonsensical:
Dozen means 12. They say that they're a dozen, then they say that there are 80 of them. There cannot be 12 of them and 80 pf them at the same time. I don't get it.
