Band Name Origins:

  • Meat Loaf was given that nickname as a child from a gym teacher in his school. I read that from a book of band name origins. Submitted by: Nick Mancini
  • The actual complete band name is "Meat Loaf and the Neverland Express." "Meat Loaf" is Marvin Aday's (Meat Loaf) childhood nickname that his alcoholic father called him to tease Meat about his weight. The "Neverland Express" part deals with Meat's songwriter, Jim Steinman, and how he's obsessed with Peter Pan and the idea of Neverland, including the broadway show "Neverland."

Weird Names of Music Performer's Children:

  • Pearl - It's not a bad name, just kinda old fashioned. I used to think only grandmas were named Pearl. If she ever becomes a famouse singer herself, maybe the name will come back in vogue. Then again, I haven't met many kids named Meat. Submitted by: cygna vamp

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:

"Objects in the Rearview Mirror May Appear Closer.."
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And objects in the rear view mirror
may appear closer than they are
(which, by the way, is the full title of the song; it wouldn't fit entirely in the song name field)
Why They're Nonsensical:
The song and story is about a man who has gone through some depressing and difficult times and how he has buried those feelings. And although a great amount of time has passed, those feelings are nearer to your present state of mind than you might think. However, there are two problems with using these lines to describe this. One, the quote the way it is given in the song, although makes no sense to the story. If things appear closer than they are, it means that you are aware of how close the pain is but it, in reality, isn't really that close. And two, if you read the outside mirror of your car the correct phrase is 'objects in the rearview mirror may be closer than they appear' which would actually have made the song make sense.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"All Revved Up With no Place to Go"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I was out on the prowl down by the edge of the track.
Like a son of a jackal I'm the leader of the pack.
Why They're Misrhymed:
E-man has got it wrong. He reckons 'son of a jackal' is supposed to rhyme (poorly) with 'leader of the pack'. But go back to the previous line: 'down by the edge of the track'. 'Track' and 'pack' rhyme perfectly. If we're going to be pedantic, let's at least be accurate!
Submitted by: Wabbit
"All Revved Up With No Place To Go"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:

He tells the woman that not only does he not love her, but "there ain't no way" he ever will. Ouch.

Very nicely done, Mr. Loaf. Combines nostalgia, the promise of making love, and a little regret over the union. He even throws in a baseball announcement as a metaphor.

I heard that this song was the longest song to hit the #1 spot in the states, but I misheard the length as 7 minutes, and I thought "American Pie" had also hit #1, but the length of the Meat Loaf song is 11, not 7, minutes! More like 12!
