Band Name Origins:

  • Originally, the members of the band at the time (1973) were holding a radio contest to name the band, since their current name wasn't catchy (The Golden Gate Rhythm Section). After some horrible names (i.e. Rumpled Foreskin, Hippiepotomous) a member of their road crew came up with Journey and it's been the band's name ever since. Submitted by: Aurora
  • The band had a contest but did not like any of the names submitted. One of their roadies suggested Journey and they liked it. Submitted by: Peach

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Frontiers"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
War is for fools. Crisis is cool. Barbarians play.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Although Journey were not the greatest lyric writers in the known universe, they still had an offbeat way of getting their message across. 'Frontiers' is one of those types of tunes. In an abstract sort of way, this song depicts man's advancement into the technological age. But what the deuce do barbarians playing have to do with that??? And if war is for fools, when why is crisis cool? Wouldn't war qualify as a 'crisis'??? I literally cringe everytime I hear this lyric and find it hard to believe it wasn't just written to fill out some musical space...

Super Short Pop Songs:

"Majestic" Length: :41 (Live); 1:16 (Studio)
"Majestic" is the very first song that appears on "Captured" before it segues into "Where Were You." The studio version of "Majestic" which appears on "Evolution" is slightly longer than the live version which appears on "Captured." The only "lyrics" that are heard in this song are "Ahh, ahh," which is sung three times. Unlike the live version, the studio version opens with a few guitar notes, which is why the live version is shorter.
Submitted by: Isac
"Stay Awhile" Length: 2:48
This song sounds somewhat like "Lights." As a result, on their live albums "Captured" and "Greatest Hits Live," "Lights" segues into "Stay Awhile." However, "Lights" and "Stay Awhile" appear on two different studio albums. "Lights" appears on "Infinity." The latter song appears on "Departure."
