Band Name Origins:

  • Corruption of the word "refugees". Wyclef Jean, in a press release for his new clothing company, said (in part) "Everyone in the United States is a refugee to some degree. No one's culture originated here. In the past either our parents or ancestors left their homelands to come here for various reasons. People die because they are refugees. People need to remember that." Submitted by: baudtender

How to Pronounce a Band Name:

I think it should be "Few-jeez" because I once heard it was short for "refugees". But, they chose to say it as if it were the plural of "Fuji".
