How did Westlife get the band name - West Coast IrelandInitially known as West side, but then a group of American hip-hop and gangsta rapping artists operating under the label Westside Connection objected.

So the Irish, from Sligo, on the west coast of Ireland (hence Westside and Westlife), obediently changed the name of their teenpop band.

Active: 1998-present, IRL
