Band Name Origins:

  • Matt Skiba, Rob Doran, and Glenn Porter were the original members of the Alkaline Trio. Alkaline means "basic" and trio obviously means "three." The story about Matt flipping through a dictionary for a band name is true--he got as far as alkaline and stopped. Submitted by: Emily
  • Matt Skiba basically just looked up a word in the dictionary. Then he added trio to it. Obviously he didnt make it that far into the dictionary. Nose Over Tail97 is correct. Submitted by: Nomarfar

Stupid Band Names:

  • Alkaline means having to do with chemical compounds that neutralize acids, i.e., have a pH greater than 7. Is that what this group does? Do they work in a chemistry lab when they're not performing? Submitted by: Cassandra

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"All On Black"
The Insincere Lyrics:
RE: "Whats upside down was coated in silver? This crucifix is my four leaf clover"
Why They're Insincere:
This lyrics is absolutely not INsincere - he means every word. It is very Satanic - Matt Skiba and Derek Grant are both well-known members of the Church of Satan, and Dan Andriano is "comfortably" associated with the religion as well. If you pay close enough attention, many Alkaline Trio lyrics are Satanic....Satanism isn't "freakish" at all - try reading up on it yourself before passing judgment.

"All On Black"
The Insincere Lyrics:
What's upside down, what's coated in silver

Why They're Insincere:
The upside down crucifix is Skiba's lucky emblem. How freakishly satanic is that?

Insulting Song Lyrics:

"You're Dead"
The Insulting Lyrics:
