Look, I get what you're saying, but it's not. Kevin himself admits that it's from a really terrible movie
, and they even wanted to change it in ~1988.
Amazing how they went from being a mediocre band with a shit name to an astonishing band with a shit name.
Nah, I disagree.
Good band name, Kevin doesnít know what heís talking about, and their early work might be an acquired taste, but itís a taste Iíve acquired.
their most recent album (m b v) is their worst, even though itís still good.
And the band name works.
