It’s not often that a band uses their groups name in their hit song but it had been done before. Bad Company, Big Country,the Monkees, Queen and Black Sabbath to name of few.

What exactly does it mean to “Wang Chung”? Nick Feldman, who is half of the duo Wang Chung, once said: “Wang Chung is the feeling, not the word. It represents an abstract, an escape from pragmatic, complex ideas. Wang Chung means whatever you want it to mean. Have fun with it. That’s the whole idea of the line.
