Band Name Origins:

  • In an interview with People magazine, lead singer Tom Chaplin explained that as a boy, his mother had a friend named Cherry Keane. He loved her name because it reminded him of the popular phrase "peachy keen". This was originally the band's name, but they later dropped "cherry" and became Keane. Submitted by: Madeleine
  • "Keane" is an irish boy name (basically the same as "Keen") and it means "fighter". Submitted by: Nabadango!

a parody of "Somewhere Only We Know" by Keane
This song is about the angst that only the San Jose Sharks and its fan base knows. It has been a difficult summer and who knows what happens to the Sharks this season. I bleed teal, so I'm hoping for the best GO SHARKS!
