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
