Band Name Origins:

  • Taken from Andrew's Interview on Djrossstar: One day him and clutch were walking around Philedelphia and noticed in all the urban stores there were no black mannequins. He thought that would be a good name for a band, but when it came time to name the project he didn't think "The Black Mannequins" would go over too well and one of the first songs he wrote for the band was called "Dear Jack". "Jack" rhymes with "black" and you get Jack's Mannequin. Submitted by: Meg
  • Andrew McMahon liked "The Mannequins" but hated band names with "the" in it. He had a childhood friend whose brother had leukemia named Jack. Also, the first song that McMahon recorded without Something Corporate was called "Dear Jack". It was a coincidence that McMahon himself was diagnosed with leukemia just when he was launching his side project. Submitted by: M
