A reported review of the first one million passwords leaked through the Ashley Madison website data breach has “yamaha” and “midnight” ranked 18th and 19th as most common passwords on the now-more-infamous cheating site. Yamaha has enticed many fans with their Midnight Cruisers since the 1980s, and some of them are well into, or... ahem, slightly past, mid life crisis age by now.

This isn’t the first time “yamaha" has been on a password list. According to PC Magazine "yamaha" was banned as a password by Twitter in 2009.
