Real Name
Submitted by:
The Ramones 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.  I Saw the Ramones Live 4X!
Midnight Oil The Oils A convenient shortening often used by critics.  Blue Sky Miner
Mick Jagger Big Lips He's notorious for this. I Got Stoned at Ohio State University!

Madonna The "Who's That Girl" From the title selection of a film in which she starred in the 1980s, also referring to the fact that she kept changing identities and images in her videos. Certainly a more appropriate nickname than "The 'MATERIAL' Girl," which NEVER fitted her! Parker Gabriel
