MGM told Zappa that the band would have to change their name, claiming that no DJ would play a record on the air by a group called “The Mothers.”

…at the time, it was, you know, if you were a good musician, you were a motherfucker, and Mothers was short for collection of motherfuckers. And actually, it was kind of presumptuous to name the band that, because we weren’t that good musicians, we were…But by bar-band standards in the area, we were light-years ahead of our competition, but in terms of real musicianship, I just suppose we were right down there in the swamp.
—Frank Zappa
