Band Name Origins:

  • The group struggled to come up with a name for a while, and finally one group member said that they should name themselves after the most pointless and absurd thing they could come up with. "The Sugarcubes" were the first name suggested, and it stuck. No LSD connection here. Submitted by: Marcus van der Meer

The Repetitive Lyrics:
cat cat cat!
Why They're Repetitive:
Ok, they do this at the begining of the song, then a lot through the song, then, when they aren't repeating cat over and over, it's all Icelandic. Don't get me wrong, it's a funny funny hahaha song.

Why don't you shoot him?
Why They're Repetitive:
I adore the Sugarcubes, but it sure takes a long time (about thirty repetitions) for Bjrk to convince Einar to shoot him.
