Annotation

Up to the release of “Yanqui U.X.O.”, GYBE placed the exclamation mark at the end of their name. It was then moved to match the film they had taken their name from.


  • Yanqui U.X.O. marks the first release by the group after slightly altering their name (moving the exclamation mark from the "emperor" to the "you")” -- Wikipedia
  • In the beginning of their career, they were known as "Godspeed You Black Emperor!", but the name was later changed to have the exclamation point after the word "You".Urban Dictionary
  • Another suggested that moving the exclamation mark in their name (up until the release of their current album, they were known as Godspeed You Black Emperor! ) was evidence of their "often hard-to-spot sense of humour"The Guardian’s review of Yanqui UXO
