All-Male Heavy Rock Band Dubs Itself ‘Lesbian’

SEATTLE (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Tongues are wagging about a Seattle-based heavy metal rock band named “Lesbian.”

But it’s not what you think. There are no lesbians at all in the band – just four straight guys who love rocking out.

Frontman Dan LaRochelle says the quartet came up with the name when they got together for what they thought was a one-time gig.

However, the name has stuck ever since.

Says LaRochelle: “We were scrambling to put something together for a gig, and our drummer randomly said, ‘Let’s call ourselves Lesbian.’ We all agreed and that was it.”

So far, LaRochelle says they’ve gotten positive feedback from lesbians who enjoy their moniker, but he thinks the tide may turn if there were an actual band of lesbians who wanted to call their group “Lesbian.”

LaRochelle says, “I don’t know what we’d do, but hey, we had the band name first.”

Lesbian releases their debut album, Power Hor, in March.
