Fun Music Information -> KillSwitch Engage

This is the most recent information about KillSwitch Engage that has been submitted to amIright. If we have more information about KillSwitch Engage, then we provide a link to the section where it appears (the actual page whenever possible).


Band Name Origins:

  • Taken directly from "A kill switch is simply a button that shuts off machinery in the event of an emergency. In the context of this band, it referenced making a clean break from past musical endeavors. Or as bassist Mike D'Antonio put it, "basically shutting everything down that we once knew and starting over." " Submitted by: Jonathan S.
  • The origin submitted by Luke Thomas is bogus. The name Killswitch Engage was picked 4 years before they had a new singer. I know some of the members of the band personally, so I know for a fact that it is not true. Submitted by: Me

Story about this misheard lyric by: urdarlindead

So we all know the slogans about recycling, I figure. Well, the first time I heard the song, it sounded like the words were 'recycle repeat'. At first that sounds a little odd, yet not. Then after I went to look the lyrics up, I found out. Then I just felt like an idiot.
