Band Name Origins:

  • Sloan got a gig and were about to play although without a band name. When Jay Fergeson went into the restroom during soundcheck he noticed the word "sloan" on the urinals. Apparently he jokingly said to a couple of friends before the show "What about sloan?" The word spread through the crowd and everybody started yelling "sloan! sloan!" when they took the stage.

  • Sloan is Canada's premier power pop group. Guitarist Jay Ferguson writes at "It was the nickname of a guy named Jason Larson who plays in a band called The Straight Jackets.... His picture is on the cover of our Peppermint EP. He lived in Montreal for quite a while and he worked in a warehouse. His boss always called him 'slow one,' but with the French accent it turned into 'Sloan,' and all of his friends used to call him 'slow one' which just sounded like Sloan. And that's how we became Sloan." Submitted by: gohlkus

Story about this misheard lyric by: JamaisLu

I thought it was about his addictions: coke, speed and a girl named Jolene (known to be a heartbreaker in at least a few other songs).
