Why did they choose the name Ghost Robot Ninja Bear?

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 now and then, we’ll pull back the curtain on a different band and this week it’s Brooklyn indie-punk act Ghost Robot Ninja Bear. Here’s what frontman/jack-of-all-trades Oscar Albis Rodriguez had to say:

My ex-bandmate and I were hanging out one night not-quite-all-there and just having fun with words.  I’m pretty sure she put the words together.  I decided it was a great band name as it was 4 of my favorite things and asked if I could use it.  But we got really specific about it and decided for the backstory that it’s not 4 separate things, it’s a bear.  She said she’d like to draw a comic book about the bear and it’s backstory;  I hope that happens.  That bear’s going to be badass.
