What If Musicians Kept Their Real Names? (PICTURES)

Last week, we imagined a world where actors opted to professionally use their birth names instead of their chosen stage name. But actors aren't the only celebrities to use a made-up moniker in the public eye. Some of our most iconic musicians also choose to use a fictional name -- sometimes to enhance his or her mystique, or sometimes because a fake name just sounds cooler. We mocked up a few album covers portraying the artist's birth name they ditched in favor the name for which they're known today.
