      Matchbox Twenty
      — Originally titled “Matchbox 20,” the band took its name from a
      softball jersey with a “20” on it and a patch that had “Matchbox”
      written on it. The band altered its name to “Matchbox Twenty” after the
      release of its debut album Yourself or Someone Like You.[105]
