What band name Bintangs means - Bir Bintang - beerTo quote the website of Music Center Netherlands: the Bintangs are a legendary formation from Beverwijk, founded by the brothers Frank and Arti Kraayeveld. In its eventful history the band had a large number of different line-ups; that is what you get from being in the music business for almost half a century.

The name comes from Malay; a bintang is a star and Bintangs therefore means 'stars'.

Bintang is also a well known Indonesian beer brand that started decades ago as Java Beer, then got the name Heineken, and after that was renamed to Bir Bintang. Heineken still own Bir Bintang. See also Carlsberg.
