1,045 Trifectas

What is a Trifecta?


According to WFMU DJ Irwin Chusid, a Trifecta occurs when the band, song, and album name are the same, a Quadfecta adds the record label. When asked for examples, Irwin replied:

I had thought about several examples a few years ago, but didn't write them down. Right now I can't think of any. But they exist.

Doesn't count if it's a 7' single or EP. Has to be an album title. The group Dangerous Girls had a song called Dangerous Girls, but never released an album, only singles.

The Monkees sang Hey, Hey, We're the Monkees on Meet the Monkees. Doesn't count.

-Irwin


I made this list of over 1,000 Trifectas and Irwin immediately pointed out a few that were missing. This list contains only full-length official releases, no EP's, singles, bootlegs, box sets, etc.

If you know of a Trifecta (or Quadfecta) missing from this list, please let me know (trifecta@rotang.com), the list is a work-in-progress.
Please also enjoy our Greatest Number of Greatest Hits and New, not New lists.
