Cherry Poppin' Daddies - Love hurts

American rock band with songs on the repertoire that may be categorized as punk rock, swing, funk and ska. But country, psychedelic rock and glam rock form no obstacle for the Cherry Poppin' Daddies either.

For the still inexperienced and nameless band with the first performances in the offing finding a prime name became a matter of urgency. Suggestions as Big Yank and Mr. Wiggles and The Iron Men of Leisure fell on stony ground, but the mood changed considerably when the provocative name Cherry Poppin' Daddies was put to the vote. The term occurs on a 'race record', a record specifically meant for black people.

Why band name Cherry Poppin Daddies - Love band-aid
Just like Butthole Surfers, Cherry Poppin' Daddies is a name that some people may find offensive; even your editor, who by now has reviewed quite a few weird band names, raised the old eyebrow.

That is because the expression cherry popping refers to the defloration process: the deflowering of girls whose damaged hymen usually will bleed.

Active: 1988-2000; 2002-present, USA
