Below we present – mostly with a very basic info – various music bands that have turtle names, we also show some of their album covers, those with turtle motifs (other than just the turtle name of the band).
The Turtles – Probably the most famous of the “turtle bands”, even if not by name, but from their very popular song “Happy Together”. They created in the style of rock and pop. Initially, they used a name the Tyrtles, but this one didn’t catch on. They make extensive use of turtle symbolism, in the band’s logo or on their records. In the songs themselves, however, we have not found turtles so far. The band’s official website.
English band, founded in Middleton (Greater Manchester) in 1985. The style in which it is created by Indie Rock, the most famous song of the band is “Can You Dig It?”. The name probably refers to mock turtle, characters from Alice in Wonderland, and, possibly, to the above-mentioned “The Turtles”.
Dave Carrol (a band member who plays the banjo) when asked about the genesis of the name said that they were looking for something that would not identify them as a bluehrass band. The name chosen sounds like an unusual, slow accident.
South Korean hip-hop group, debuting in 2001. The group’s leading singer and rapper, using the pseodunim “Turtleman”, died of a heart attack in 2008, the group was disbanded by the remaining members after this event, but resumed in 2011 with a new singer. The name in Korean is 거북이.
