The Wanted could of been called 'The Fux'.... ♥

So, Interestingly, i just found out that before Nath came up with the genius name 'the wanted' they had thought about calling themselves 'the fux' No boys. No.
Luckily 'the fux' got Rejected by there record label for being to rudee!
Im so glad the record label rejected that name,
'The fux' isn't that much of a bad name, but it doesn't suit the band does it?
It suits a band that sound more like the kooks, or the pigeon detectives.
To be fair i would still love the wanted even if they were called 'the fux' But i dont think they'd be as big...
there would be no #wantedwednesday......instead im guessing it would be #fuxfriday....but you cant go round shouting that out in the streets!
So heres an interveiw The wanted did about the interesting name idea with Digital Spy:

The Wanted revealed that their record label rejected a name suggested by song writer Guy Chambers. 

"Guy said we should call ourselves The Fux," Nathan Sykes told the Daily Star.

"We've had some crazy times with him and it really made us laugh.

"We actually thought about it for a while as it would have made us stand out. But the record company put the kibosh on it, weirdly," he confessed. "I ended up coming up with the name The Wanted instead."

Sykes went on to reveal the inspiration behind the choice of name. 

“We’ve got a song called 'Let’s Get Ugly' and it samples a tune from The Good, The Bad And The Ugly film.

"I had this vision of us all on one of those wanted posters and because the lads couldn’t come up with anything better, it stuck."

The band, who release their next single 'Heart Vacancy' in October, admitted that they are already planning a follow-up to their debut album, which apparently has the working title Behind Bars.

"We want to record the next album in a couple of months, or as soon as possible," Tom told the paper.

"Our label want us to keep on it and we plan to write the majority of it ourselves. We want to evolve and progress all the time."

He added: "The first time the label put us in the studio, it was just us and a tech nician.

"They said: 'You’ve got a day to come up with something’. So we did," he said. "They couldn’t believe the song we’d written. I think we surprised them."
So what do you think of the name 'The Fux'
Better or worse than 'the wanted'
