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 musician and this week it’s New Jersey-based melodic punk outfit None More Black.
Our crack team of investigators have discovered that the band took it’s name from a line said during the cult classic mockumentary “This Is Spinal Tap.” Spinal Tap’s lead guitarist Nigel Tufnel says while looking at the band’s album cover, “There’s something about this that’s so black it’s like how much more black could this be? The answer is none, none more back.” Check out a video of the movie scene right here.
