Band Name Origins:

  • Jeff Mangum, the frontman and singer/songwriter of the group, had an early collaboration with another member of the band and called themselves Milk, after the name "Neutral Milk Hotel," which Jeff had used in school for various purposes. When they found out another band was called Milk, they decided to use the entire name, Neutral Milk Hotel. Jeff also, at the time, came up with the name "Olivia Tremor Control," which wound up being the name of another band on Elephant 6 Recording Company. Submitted by: AtlantisX

Stupid Band Names:

  • They were a great, experimental, inventive band, so why'd they have to pick a name with such boring connotations? That'd be like calling Sonic Youth something like Wallpaper. Submitted by: Cat

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Oh Comely"
The Dated Lyrics:
And will she remember me fifty years later
I wished I could save her in some sort of time machine
Why They're Dated:
This song refers to Anne Frank, who died in 1945, and since this song was on an album released in 1998, it was already dated when it was current! So if you're an indie-rock coffeehouse performer, it would probably be best to change it to 'sixty years later' if you intend to cover this, it may be off by a year, but hey, it's better in this case.

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"The King of Carrot Flowers pt. 1"
The Dirty Lyrics:
One afternoon I knew I could love you
And from above you how I sank into your soul
Into that secret place where no one dares to go
Why They're Dirty:
I'd listened to this song many times but one day it just hit me how sexual this part is. The narrator is talking about having sex with a girl (who is probably a virgin.)
