Band Name Origins:

  • The band name alludes to a Vietnam-era GI slang backronym for a particularly bad combat situation, which stands for "F***ed Up, Got Ambushed, Zipped In" Submitted by: ronan
  • Fugazi is a pizza like bread that contains many air bubbles. "Faux gaz" is old French slang for a fake diamond which can be distinguished by the minute gas bubbles trapped inside. I have heard the term used in both languages to describe someone or something as being fake. Submitted by: malte

Story about this misheard lyric by: Jon

Actually, a friend in high school heard the lyric that way. She was singing along to it at the top of her lungs in the car. She seemed so into it that I couldn't bring myself to correct her.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I close my eyes so I can see...
I burn a fire to stay cool...
Shut the door so I can leave
Why They're Nonsensical:
These song lyrics are so contradictory, it's impossible to figure out what the song is really about.
