All the titles of the six albums by Kings Of Leon contain 5 syllables….Coincidence???
Youth And Young Man-hood
A-ha Shake Heart-break
Be-cause Of The Times
On-ly By The Night
Come A-round Sun-down
After the first 2 albums came out they specifically started looking for 5 syllable titles. Caleb Followill said about the title to the 4rd album,
“That was actually the toughest part of this album. I mean, we had the music and we knew it was good. Or at least to us. Every day we’d go in there and record and it would come out great, to us, but we would still have our head down. Like, ‘What the fuck are we going to call the record?’ Because we had all these great titles, but none of them were five syllables.”
A feelnumb.com reader, Jamy Romero noticed another 5 syllable coincidence in regards to Kings Of Leon. Although the band name is only 4 syllables, the band members names are all 5 syllables, Caleb Followill, Jared Followill, Nathan Followill and Matthew Followill.
UPDATE: On June 8, 2013, Kings Of Leon announced the name of the 6th studio album and another 5 syllable title “Mechanical Bull“.
The syllables have stayed the same but the Kings Of Leon look has vastly changed over the years. Check it out below…
