One of the great stories of band name confusion is KMFDM. Who hasn’t heard that supposedly KMDFM stands for Kill Mother Fucking Depeche Mode. Band name confusion is classic. There are the rumors that KISS stands for Kids in Satan’s Service. There’s also the one that Silver Chair were requesting songs and wanted “Sliver” from Nirvana and “Berlin Chair” from YouAmI and then put them together for Sliver Chair. How about the one about N’sync actually being the last letter of all the bandmates first names. Let’s see there’s JustiN, ChriS, JoeY, J.C. amd LancE. You can tell that band name rumors are at times very silly. So what does KMFDM stand for? Kein Mehrheit Für Die Mitleid, which essentially means “No Sympathy for the Majority” and if you see the style of the band, it makes more sense than some name referencing Depeche Mode.
