While the band has been around the block a few times, Måneskin has been all the rage over the last few years. The question is, as a newer fan, how can I say the band’s name without making a total fool of myself? Here’s how to pronounce Måneskin.
Thankfully, a super fan stitched together interview footage of all the times they’ve had to explain their origin story. From what we’re seeing (so far) they haven’t gotten too annoyed at having to explain how they got their name.
Comprised of Damiano David (vocals), Victoria de Angelis (bass), Thomas Raggi (guitar), and Ethan Torchio (drums), Måneskin first formed while in high school in Italy. They would go on to perform on the Italian version of the popular talent show X Factor. Spoiler alert: they placed second. From there they released an EP and a series of singles in their native Italian language followed.
Hit fast forward on their career and Måneskin is riding a wave of success on popular singles like “I Wanna Be Your Slave“. The track features the iconic Iggy Pop and is available everywhere you listen to music.
Since its release, the song has been heard more than 300 million times on Spotify alone. As of last summer, the music video was released and has since been viewed more than 34 million times.
In the fall of 2021, they achieved another major accomplishment. According to The Independent, they beat out the Foo Fighters, Coldplay, The Killers, and Imagine Dragons when they won best Rock Back at the MTV EMA’s.
