10 Alternative Name Meanings for Alt Rock Nominee Imagine Dragons

It’s no secret that Imagine Dragons is a talented band: they are nominated at the 2014 American Music Awards for Favorite Alternative Rock Artist, Artist of the Year and Favorite Pop/Rock Band, Duo or Group. However, the true meaning behind the band’s name is a secret. The group says that “Imagine Dragons” is actually an anagram made up of the letters of different words, but they won’t tell what the original words are!

“At this point, it’s been built up so much that anything we say is going to be a letdown,” Wayne Sermon, the band’s guitarist, told Radio.com. “We might just leave it up to everyone’s imaginations. They probably have better guesses than the real answer.”

Well, we have pretty good imaginations, so here are 10 anagrams for “Imagine Dragons” that we think could be the secret meaning behind the band’s name (plus, they are supported by Instagram evidence).

1) Ignorning Mad Sea

5) A Rigid, Mean Song

We wouldn’t call “Radioactive” a mean song, but the red powder sure does make these guys look intimidating!

6) A Dream Gig, No Sin

This show in Brazil definitely looks like a dream gig.

Brasil was the perfect way to end the South American tour. now it's time to go work on album 2…

7) Ragged Insomnia

If you can’t sleep in a bed, sleep on a couch.

8) A Mansion Digger

A mansion digger could be someone who “digs” or likes mansions? Or maybe it’s someone who will only date people own mansions, similar to a gold digger? Or a contractor who physically digs the basements for mansions. We’ll let you decide.
