Mothers of Invention

How did Mothers of Invention get the band name - toilet roll ipod - funny-gadgets-10This was Frank Zappa's famous band, a formation that in its relatively short life span managed to give birth to tons of interesting music, from comedy rock to jazz fusion and from hard rock to alternative music.

The band's name actually was The Mothers at first, but because the record company was afraid that the outside world would extend this to The Motherfuckers, Zappa changed it to The Mothers of Invention, after the saying Necessity is the mother of invention (emergency makes inventive).
