Deftones - One meaning is not enough

Always nice when a band name can be explained in several ways.

What inspired band name Deftones - Def_Jam_LogoThe rockers of American band Deftones (Sacramento, California) seem to have stated themselves that their name is a veiled tribute to Def Jam Records, a record label they admire. In other words, Deftones means tones based on sounds from the Def-stable.

Others note that the band members may be accusing their lead singer Chino of being tone deaf.

And yet another story has it that there should be a space between the 't' and the ' o': the deft ones, let's say the idiots.
