I can remember reading back around 1980 in Rolling Stone or some other music magazine that the band's name was a metric conversion of the name of the American band The Lovin' Spoonful. Apocryphal or not, there must surely be some source somewhere about this, if nothing else some interview where a band member is asked this question (although, for some reason, interviewers rarely ask obvious questions - why, I don't know). If nothing else, should there be a line in the article reading something like, "Contrary to popular belief, the name 10cc is not based upon the American band The Lovin' Spoonful"? __126.96.36.199 (talk) 19:35, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
