Duran Duran

Recommended Posts


An '80's band that has sold more than 70 million records, yet the most interesting thing about them (IMHO) is the fact that they named themselves after the villain in the 1968 sci-fi film Barbarella. Additional factoid: the credits at the end of the film spell the villain's name with a hyphen and a "d" at the end. I.e., Dr. Durand-Durand. (Note: This is not as odd as it might seem. Many family naming conventions hyphenate the family names of the bride and groom. And if you marry your cousin...)


Hungry Like The Wolf, so I'm going to go and eat someone, er, something.
