Band Name Origins:

  • From his last name Submitted by: music

Stupid Band Names:

  • I know it's the lead singer's last name, but I once read in a dictionary that a British term for intercourse is "have your end away." So in past tense, it could simply be like "We just HAD AWAY at that lady." Therefore some Brits could interpret this group's name in a sick manner. Submitted by: Kyle

Why They're Repetitive:
This accounts for at least half the entire song. I guess if these guys knew they were gonna be a one hit wonder, they might as well make a repetitive song!

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"What Is Love?"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
What is love?
Baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me no more
Why They're Inappropriate:
Never mind this chorus not making any sense ['don't hurt me no more'? So you *want* her to hurt you?] but I dread to think what this woman is doing to the lead singer of Haddaway. Sadomasochism, anyone?
