Regardless of what decade you grew up in, music was probably the foundation of your adolescent life. If you up on the latest trends in the 90s, it would be a shock if Destiny's Child and Green Day didn't make a coveted spot on your mix tapes.
But did you ever wonder were these popular groups got their iconic moniker? Well, if you're feeling intrigued, here are eight stories behind how bands got their names.
1. Backstreet Boys
This boy band's name was chosen by their infamous manager, Lou Pearlman, after Orlando's Backstreet Market, where the members used to hang out.
He wanted to create a group similar to the New Kids On The Block, and ironically, the two bands would eventually come together and record their joint album, NKOTBSB.
According to UPROXX, Mark Hoppus, Tom Delonge, and Travis Barker originally only went by the name BLINK, which stood for "Boys Lusting Incredibly Nude Kids," in a bid to make mainstream media uncomfortable.
However, an Irish techno group went by the moniker "Blink" first, and in an effort to avoid a lawsuit, the band decided to add the number 182.
Why? Well it turns out the number was chosen because Al Pacino said "f*ck" in Scarface 182 times.
3. Boyz II Men
This smooth trio got their name from fellow R &B group, New Edition. On New Edition's 1988 album Heart Break, their final song is called "Boys to Men," and boy is it ever a jam.
4. Destiny's Child
Destiny's Child was a popular girl group where the one and only Beyonce got her start. It turns out the trio got their name straight from the Bible.
"We got the word destiny out of the Bible, but we couldn't trademark the name, so we added child, which is like a rebirth of destiny,” the Grammy Award-winning singer told CBS in 2002.
