The 20 most recent entries are listed below. There are 950 Music Performer Nicknames entries on the site.
|The Next President of the United States of America
|Steven Van Zandt
|It's apparently a nod to Little Richard.
|The Cutchi Cutchi Girl
|Based on the Latina performer's catch phrase from the '70s and 80's
|He's been drumming for Bon Jovi since the early days so his talent? I don't know but he's had it for a while.
|Little Evas of the East
|Shonen Knife is a Japanese lady punk trio that bases their music on Ramones-style punk, Beach Boys, 60's girl group harmonizing and J-pop. Little Eva was a prominent star of the early 60's 'girl group' sound and Shonen Knife are from Japan, which is the Far East/East Asia/Orient region. A 'girl group' from 'the (Far) East'. They're a fun band with a 'kawaii' image that plays punk rock and pays it HARD. Check them out.
|I Saw Shonen Knife 5 Times
|Supposedly his skills as a producer merited that NICKname to nick when he produced some early New Wave records.
|I Saw Nick in 2019, FINALLY!
|Prince of Darkness
|Ozzy took that nickname in keeping with his dark and sinister stage persona, though interestingly enough, the Birmingham-based Lucas Industries where Osbourne and his mother used to work for also earned the nickname due to Lucas's dubious reliability.
|It's apparently because he does an impression of a boxer named Lemma Moon.
|The Father of Swing
|He truly deserved this title. A bandleader that had an eye for finding and developing very talented musicians, his gift earned him the nickname the "Father of Swing." Some of the musicians that passed through his bands from the mid-1920's to the 1940's went on to become successful bandleaders themselves: Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Harry James, Jack Teagarden, Yank Lawson, Hilton “Nappy” Lamare, Joe Harris, Charlie Spivak, etc.
|Jon Bon Jovi
|It's his name in three letters.
|Given to him by Jon Bon Jovi because he says that he's too old to call Paul Mr. McCartney and too in awe to just call him Paul.
|It was given to him by one of his closest friends, Freddie Mercury, who sadly died of AIDS in 1991
|A mean childhood nickname for his teeth
|He actually hates being called the Boss but the nickname has stuck because back when he and his band was still playing clun gigs, he would hand out their pay at the end of the night
|For quite obvious reasons
|They have used this nickname in 2 tours (till 2020): "The Beast On The Road" (1982) & "The Legacy Of The Beast" (2019).
|He has used this nickname in 2 albums ("Professor Satchafunkilus and the Musterion of Rock" & "Satchurated: Live in Montreal") and 2 songs (till 2020: "Satch boogie" & "Professor Satchafunkilus"). Satch a great guy!
|After Christ Demons Come
|Another silly Christian group name for this classic band. Founder brothers, Malcolm and Angus Young (not Agnus as it's written in this list) also were aware that A.C.D.C.'s bisexual meaning, but stuck with AC/DC (Alternate Current / Direct Current). It's electric!
|Elizabeth Fraser of the Cocteau Twins
|Voice of God
