It definitely wouldn't have worked as well when put in the phrase "Black Pink in your area!"

Black Pink may be one of the hottest girl groups in K-pop at the moment, but there was a time where the girls were almost known as a completely different moniker! 

The group made an appearance on the July 6 episode of SBS Power FMs "2 O'Clock Escape Cultwo Show," and Black Pink revealed that one of their original group names was actually "Pink Punk!" Ultimately, the decision was made by YG CEO Yang Hyun Suk to make the "Pink" part cooler, and thus Black Pink was born.

Pink Punk has its own charm, but it doesn't have quite the same ring to it as Black Pink!
