Fun Music Information -> SR-71

This is the most recent information about SR-71 that has been submitted to amIright. If we have more information about SR-71, then we provide a link to the section where it appears (the actual page whenever possible).


Band Name Origins:

  • SR-71 is the name of a retired (in 1999) Air Force jet nicknamed "The Blackbird". It was a long-range recon plane with top speed of Mach 3+ (more than 3 times the speed of sound) and could travel at 85000 feet. This baby was BAD!! Submitted by: Jay Hamm
  • According to the website and interview from Metal, the band was indeed named after the plane of the same name. One member's father had a hand in the design or building of this aircraft. Submitted by: Jesse

Stupid Band Names:

  • When you look at the name, you actually have to LOOK at it first to see if it spells anything, then after you realize it doesn't you are left with wondering what exactly it means... it reminds me of an identification card for an elderly person. Submitted by: Darah Wraine
  • I know it's actually a super-sonic jet engine; but it sounds like just a random melange of letters and numbers. Submitted by: Dave Harrison

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Right Now"
The Funny Lyrics:
So what if the sex was great?
Just a temporary escape.
Another thing I grew to hate,
But now that's over.
Why They're Funny:
I've never heard of a man growing to hate sex, no matter how many times he does it. If anything, it should be the "receiving" side of the relationship. That would actually make sense.
