What exactly means the word "Conchords"?

Hi, probably a silly question ...

I have just watched "Flight of the Conchords" : the HBO Tv Show.

I don't speak very well english so can anyone tell me:

What exactly means the word "Conchords"?

Thanks

It is a play on words. It is the change from "Concorde" to "Conchord". The word "chord" would be funny because it's a music group.

The word "corde is not funny because it is French.

It's like the Beatles - Beetle is the correct spelling of the word (a bug).
But spelling it with the word "Beat" in it, made it a play on words for a music group.
