Bands That Intentionally Misspell Their Names

Why do some bands choose to intentionally misspell their names? It's a common practice that companies have been utilizing for years with their names, slogans and advertisements. According to our research, it comes down to basic psychology. Humans seem to have an easier time remembering mistakes more than regular/normal things. Think of the guy wearing a bikini top and riding a unicycle on the bike path. You will remember him much more than the countless other runners and bikers you crossed paths with. The same is true for misspellings. It's a way for a band or company to stand from the rest. Personally, we don't like mispellings in bands but it seems to work for many. The most famous is probably The Beatles!
