Band Name Origins:

  • There was another band in their university named Tootie & the (can't remember what the second half was). The two bands were the competing covers bands on campus. Hootie and Tootie. Submitted by: Wang Chung Fan 1
  • Back in the college days of the band, they had two college buddies. One resembled Dizzy Gallespie with large cheeks who they referred to as Blowfish, and the other wore large glass and resembled a Hoot owl, thus calling him Hootie. One night they were playing in a local bar and the two guys walked in to which one of the members commented that walking in was Hootie and The Blowfish. Submitted by: DJ

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Let Her Cry"

Let her cry, if the tears fall down like rain.
Let her sing, if it eases all her pain.
Let her go, let her walk right out on me.
And if the sun comes up tomorrow, let her be.
Why:
This whole song is about a relationship that the man loves the woman, but the woman wants to use the man.

Song Lawsuits:

"Only Want To Be With You "
A tribute to Bob Dylan - NOT!. A lyric line describes "on a little Dylan." The verse then references three songs on Bob Dylan's 1974 Blood on the Tracks album. The lyric "sittin' on a fence" quotes Dylan's "You're a Big Girl Now." The song then references and quotes extensively from the next song on the album, Dylan's "Idiot Wind". The song then mentions Dylan's "Tangled up in Blue."However, Dylan felt that the references to his lyrics infringed on his original work, and he was not impressed by it.. He slapped a lawsuit on these hosers for stealing lyrics from his songs, and ended up getting a big settlement. But then again, since does any of Hootie's music have an ounce of originality anyway? That stuff is bland and pedestrian. You'd get better poetry from reading the label on a can of peaches.
