Great White Rhinoceros
Great White combined with Rhinoceros
The White Rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) is one of two African rhinoceros species. Since it is the largest of all rhinoceros species, the adjective "great" is fitting, as "large" is one meaning of "great"

The Ramones is also called: Neuveaux Bubblegum Band with Guts
Joey Ramone referred to the band as this. He was referring to the fact that while pundits labeled the Ramones as a punk band, the Ramones were inspired by 60s "bubblegum" and added a modern, tougher, ballsier element to the mix.

Origins -> Latest

Heavy Sigma
The origins for the band Heavy Sigma is disputed. Originally guitarist/lead vocalist Patrick Lew named the band Chaos In Chinatown based on a recommendation from a former friend on social-media, but desperately wanted to change the band's name to avoid complaints from the Asian American community. At some point, Heavy Sigma was also known as Your Audio 2 Riot, but Patrick Lew hated the name, thinking it sounded too "metalcore" and Heavy Sigma wasn't a metalcore style band. The origins of Heavy Sigma came from many different sources. Older social-media posts claimed that Patrick Lew changed the name of his current band as a pun on another local San Francisco band that he initially had a grudge with. Others claimed that he named the band Heavy Sigma after listening to the Mick Jagger side project Super Heavy. But in reality, Patrick Lew named his current band Heavy Sigma after combining two words from a band name generator on the Internet. He apparently typed in "Heavy" and one of the search results came up with the name Heavy Sigma. And he liked the name, so he officially changed his band's name from Chaos In Chinatown to Heavy Sigma.
