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).
