Classic Rock Bands Who Changed Their Name
15. R.E.M. - Cans Of Piss
Stipe, Buck, Mills and Berry played their first gig in Athens, Georgia on 5 April 1980 without a name. According to legend, they toyed with the names Twisted Kites and Cans Of Piss, before Michael Stipe picked the term R.E.M. or Rapid Eye Movement from a dictionary. Thank GOD.
