Band Name Origins:

  • I saw an interview with the band where they said the name referred to the sound of an electric guitar being strummed up, then back down. Submitted by: Ricky-rick-rick
  • Supposedly, named after Wang Chung Way, a tiny street in LA's Chinatown, where there was a Chinese restaurant which put on punk shows upstairs. However, it is worth noting that the band is in fact from Kent in southeast England. Submitted by: Tim Horrigan
