Porno for Pyros

The members of the alternative rock band Porno for Pyros came from Los Angeles, California.

Three explanations are found for the band name.

The first is that frontman Perry Farrell had the idea when he encountered a number of erotic ads in a catalogue for fireworks - it sounds implausible.

And the third explanation is perhaps the most interesting one: the name is inspired by the cover of the debut album by Jane's Addiction titled Nothing's Shocking (1988).

My explanation is that the album is so terrible (not true I love it but a PYRO might think it is) that he could buy a ton of em and set em on fire, which arouses him. Thus- PORNO FOR PYROS!
