Imagine if your favorite bands or artists had different names.

Unless they can somehow pull off changing their names mid-way through their careers (remember Snoop Lion?) what they are when they “hit it big” is what they are.

What if Green Day stuck with their original name “Sweet Children”?

Would Gen Z white girls everywhere be wearing Pink Floyd shirts if their name was actually “Screaming Abdabs”?

Think the Super Bowl would have had “Kara’s Flowers” for last year’s halftime show?

Would you sing as passionately to “Bohemian Rhapsody” if it was by “Smile” instead of Queen?
