Band Name Origins:

  • For those that entered them as a "Stupid Band Name", read on: One of the working names of the band was just "the Bunnymen" and meant as a send up to all the menacing and self-important band names of the day. The band did not have a drummer in place for their touring dates during their early years (late 70s) and relied on a drum machine to back their alternative rock sound. The drum machine either carried the model name "Echo" or was nicknamed that by the three band members. The band thought it would be a little more humorous and self-effacing to give the drum machine top billing, thus the name. They eventually added a living, breathing drummer (who unfortunately died in the late 80's and has since been replaced - multiple times). By that time they had already made a big enough impression that the name stuck. Submitted by: Chris K.
