Band Name Origins:

  • Some say it has to do with the ordered nature in which the band operates, similar to that of the international police. Before deciding upon the name Interpol, the band considered Las Armas and The French Letters. They also performed a secret show at Luna Lounge in New York under the pseudonym Cuddleworthy.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Blake

Honestly, it just made sense to me. It sounded like something Paul Banks would write and I misheard it for some three years before I finally read the lyrics on some lyric site only to find that I was wrong.
