Ever wonder where some bands come up with their band names? Well, we do, and we’re sick of sitting around scratching our heads about it. We’re hitting the streets (aka. “Internet”) to find the origins behind some of the more bizarre, intriguing or just plain random band names in the scene. Every Wednesday we’ll be pulling the curtain back on a different band and this week it’s the old school NYHC band H2O.
According to the band’s bassist Adam Blake, the name was chosen by their singer Toby Morse. At the time Toby was straight edge and he wanted a band name that evoked an image of purity in people. Since water is pure he figured H2O was a good fit and the rest is band name history.
