Prince was born on this date in 1958. Tonight just after 8 o'clock Eric Holland will spin some vinyl from Prince on the House of Wax. What other artists and bands have a name taken from royal ranks such as king, queen, kaiser, count and the like? Share your favorites below and we'll hold court with a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Jean Knight "Mr. Big Stuff "
 
Christine and the Queens "Girlfriend" (feat. Dam-Funk)
 
DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince "Summertime"
 
Chaka Khan "I Feel For You"
