It's pretty obvious that the Bay City Rollers, named after a city in Michigan, aren't exactly your all-American band. The group of tartan-clad Scots arrived on the scene shortly after the British invasion, but quickly realized that their original name -- the Saxons -- didn't quite fit with how they hoped their band would be perceived.
While most bands put great care and thought into their name, few would have the guts to leave such a decision to luck. As the story goes, the former Saxons threw a dart at a map, vowing to take the name of wherever it stuck. The first toss landed in Arkansas -- clearly not a fitting choice -- but the second hit Bay City, Michigan, so for the past 40 years they've been known as the Bay City Rollers.
