Wallflowers

Band Name Origins:

  • The name comes from a traditional song on Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series compilation. Submitted by: Jeb again
  • jakob posted on the band' site saying that they came up with "the wallflowers" after sitting around the dinner table. it was basically the only name that nobody hated. he said it was hard enough for 5 people to decide what to order, let alone choose a name that they'd have for the rest of the band's career. another popular theory around is that while the guys were at a photoshoot, they were pretty shy, standing off to the side. the photographer made a comment saying how they looked like a bunch of wallflowers. however, jakob's said that's incorrect and that it's all in the dinner theory.
