Buzzcocks - Is it really?

Explanation of band name Buzzcocks - Time Out - Rock Follies clippingEnglish rock band from Bolton. Band members Howard Devoto and Pete Shelley saw a review of widely watched British television series Rock Follies in Time Out magazine with the headline ‘It's the buzz, cocks!'.

'Buzz', the explanation has it, is the thrill of a performance. ‘Cock' is used in the sense of little prick, brat or puppy.

And yet, convincing as this may sound, voices are also heard insinuating that B. actually means something a bit naughtier than that: a buzzcock is the same thing as a vibrator.

Active: 1976-1981; 1989-present, GBR
