20 Weird Fandom Names EXPLAINED
The Blue Army
Aerosmith‘s “Blue Army” name has been around since 1975, so we don’t get why the band decided to call their official fan club Aero Force One. We love a good pun, but if you’re going to literally name a concert tour after one fan nickname, why bother with another? Guitarist Joe Perry explained in the Aerosmith biography Walk The Way that the name came from the Canadian Tuxedos prevalent at their shows and the blue-collar nature of their fans. To be fair, he also said all of their fans were male and the only girls at the shows were just there to blow them, so maybe he isn’t the most reliable narrator. Aero Force One it is.
