Band Name Origins:

  • they named themselves after jimi hendrix's girlfriend Jane who was a heroin addict. i read it in an interview(dave navarro said it himself) Submitted by: step
  • A bit of debate here. First story: they are named after a drug addicted manager they worked with named Jane. Second story: the name comes from a hooker named Jane who was a huge fan in their early days. She loved them so much they were "Jane's Addiction". Submitted by: Bobo

Stupid Band Names:
