10 c.c.
10,000 Maniacs
1910 Fruitgum Co.

10 c.c.

10 c.c. were named by record producer Jonathan King, the original story being that it was inspired by the amount of semen in the average male ejaculation (i.e. 9 cc), with one cc added as they were better than average. In fact, the average male ejaculation contains only 3-5 cc of semen. This story has since been denied by King, who said that in fact the name came to him in a dream. The group started out as Hotlegs and had a UK top 10 hit under that name with “Neanderthal Man”.
