    Always interesting in how bands came up with their names.

    Remember reading somewhere that Night Ranger got their name from the label on the inside of a fedora.

    Love the band but cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesy!!


    Sorta off-topic since it's bullshit but if you were of the super-religious ilk of the early 80's..........
    KISS = Knights In Satan's Service
    Rush = Rule Under Satan's Hand
    Saga = Satan Against God's Authority
    AC/DC = Anti Christ/Devil's Child

    And most are familiar with the story that if you hold the DIO logo upside it reads "devil".

    Interesting you should mention them as they sang the National Anthem at the race today!

    Kinda surprised that the author didn't know the most popular story on Edge's name.

    I'm sure he would have prefered Led Zeppelin. Everybody knows he wishes he was Robert Plant. Not that that's a bad thing. I wish I was Robert Plant too. But the young version not the old geezer of today.

    I know they originally started out as just Ranger but had to change it because some other band had that name already. Fedoras are sometimes listed as "Rangers," so that would make sense.
