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.

Yellowcard got their name from a phrase they used in high school. Whenever somebody did something “stupid” at a party, such as drop a beer on the carpet, they enforced soccer rules and gave them a “yellow card” for committing a “party foul”.
