    You guys got nothing?

    Motley Crue used to take extra long extension cords on the road with them just so when they threw the tv out the window of their hotel, because it looked cooler if it would stay on until it hit the ground.

    Keith Moon still holds the record for the most infamous hotel destruction incident though, which resulted in The Who being banned from every Holiday Inn on the planet. Read about it here

    The Ramones were named after Paul McCartney's pseudonym for hotel check-in

    T.I. originally called himself "Tip", but the rapper Q-Tip had an issue with him using that name so the labels convinced him to change it to something else. Instead of just picking a new name, he just shortened the old one. His real name is Clifford Harris Jr

    Rakim's real name is William Griffin Jr

    Ghostface acquired his name because in the early days of Wu-Tang, he was a wanted criminal who had to wear masks on stage to avoid being spotted. He's also used the Tony Starks alias since the early 90s and had a cameo in the Iron Man that was cut from the final film

    2 Chains originally called himself "TT Boi", but the porn star of that name had issue, so he changed it to TT 2 Chains, then 2 Chains

    Alice In Chains' name really was inspired by Alice from the Brady Bunch. Layne Staley had an odd fascination with the show and at one point intended on calling his side project "The Gacy Bunch" but got nixed by the label. They later released the album under the name Mad Season

    Stone Temple Pilots openly admit that they intentionally named their band to go along with "STP" in order to get free publicity

    Ron Zombie says he intentionally named a White Zombie EP 'God of Thunder' trying to entice KISS to sue him for free publicity

    Ghostface, Raekwon, Nas and Mobb Deep were about to record a diss record making fun of Notorious B.I.G when they found out he'd been murdered

    Souixsie Souix, Chrissie Hynde, Sid Viscious and Billy Idol all started out as Sex Pistol groupies

    The man who composed the lionshare of the music for 'Pee Wee's Playhouse', 'The Rugrats', 'Yo Gabba Gabba', the Wes Anderson films and the Crash Bandicoot and Sims games is named Mark Mothersbaugh. He is the frontman for the band DEVO.

    At one point, Josh Freese was the primary drummer for Guns N' Roses, A Perfect Circle, The Vandals and DEVO simultaneously

    90s one hit wonders Blind Melon's vocalist Shannon Hoon was a childhood friend of Axl Rose. He can be seen singing backup vocals on GNR's 'Don't Cry' video

    The director of 'Se7en', 'Fight Club', 'Benjamin Button' and the American 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' is David Fincher, who got his start making elaborate (and flaming gay) music videos of Madonna and Paula Abdul

    Hip Hop video director Gregory Dark started out making porn

    Jonas Akerlund, director of some of Madonna's most famous post-millennial videos such as 'Ray of Light' was a bass player in Bathory for a short time

    Maybe more tomorrow. I like this game

    The sex sounds you hear in the song "Rocket Queen" is Axl fucking Steven Adler's (ex?)girlfriend in the studio. Apparently, but not surprisingly, he's been a douchebag since day one.

    Zildjian is the oldest family-run business in America and one of the 300 oldest companies in the world. Its first cymbals were produced in 1623 in Armenia

    Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes and the late Notorious BIG all attended the same Brooklyn high school.

    Lil Wayne appeared in label produced music at the age of 10

    The beats of Rihanna's Umbrella were created from a slowed-down drum loop from Apple's free GarageBand software program

    Monaco’s national orchestra is bigger that its army.

    Childish Gambino got his rap name from a Wu-Tang Rap Name Generator, and if you enter his real name, Donald Glover, it generates Childish Gambino.
