Band Name Origins:

  • after 2-ds (frontman, lil hottie that he is) lil...accident...he started walking somewhat like a monkey, russel (drummer) resembled a gorilla mainly in his bulk and muscle, and murdoc (bass and self proclaimed band leader) couldnt it looks better according to the well educated russel there fore the band named their selves Gorillaz and theyre alterego band was Space monkeyz...but das another story Submitted by: Audra Oppenheimer
  • Two Reasons: 1.Lead Singer 2D (Damon Albarn from BLUR) was attacked by a chimp when he was young. 2.Animator and co-creater Jamie Hewlett was the creator of the cult comic book TANK GIRL and in the last issue he has the lead character (Rebecca) get killed by a mechanic Gorilla. And the spelling just looks cooler than the real spelling. Submitted by: Aaron Shanley:Gorillaz Freak

Story about this misheard lyric by: Kung-Fu Cutbug

For the longest time, I thought this line was "I remember", as in "I remember all the atrocities I've had to witness over these past several years; don't expect me to forget so easily." It was only after I went to a lyrics website that I realized it was "I am a mirror"--probably shorthand for "What you see in me is a reflection of what you see in yourself". Still a powerful lyric for a powerful song.

Better Lyrics:
I'm hyper,
I'm feelin' high,
I just ate,
A piece of pie,
I'm crazy,
But not for long,
This sugar high,
Is wearin' off.
Original Lyrics:
I ain't happy,
I'm feelin' glad,
I got sunshine,
In a bag,
I'm useless,
But not for long,
The future,
Is comin' on.

The Funny Lyrics:
There's a monkey in the jungle, Watchin' a vapour trail.
Caught up in the conflict Between his Brain and his Tail.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

Why They're Nonsensical:
How can it be today if it's tomorrow?! This makes no sense!
Submitted by: Colin
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Get the cool, get the cool shoeshine
Why They're Nonsensical:
What? Why would that be cool? What does that have to do with anything? In no other part of the song do they ever make any other references to shoeshine. That is so random, it's like they pulled words out of a hat and put them together. Product placement maybe? You got me.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

The Inappropriate Lyrics:
No you shouldn't be scared
I'm good at repairs
Why They're Inappropriate:
Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, you lifesaver! Boy it's a good thing you mentioned this because I just happen to have a really faulty cooker at the moment - you couldn't do us a favor and spread your repairing magic over it, could you? Hmm, methinks I can see a pointless rhyme here...

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Feel Good, Inc."
The Dirty Lyrics:
Fast Cats,
Linin' em' up like ass cracks
Why They're Dirty:
Obviously referring to lining up for sex at a club or similar. If you listen to the whole song's true meaning, it is about having mindless sex and that it is better to have sex with someone you truly love, kind of an abstinence thing going on there.
