Band Name Origins:

  • If the name has a medical origin, it is derived from the eye, not the ear. Tubes and cones are parts of the eye. Submitted by: wylvis
  • They were called the Beans, when they first got signed to A&M. Not wanting to be confused with another band at the time called the Boston Baked Beans a name change was in order. According to Tubes founder Bill Spooner, they all wrote names they liked on pieces of paper and put them into a hat than they let the house dog choose. Unknown to the others Bill had wiped mayonnaise (which attracted the dog) on his choice which was Tubes, Rods & Bulbs. The name was quickly shortened to The Tubes. Submitted by: Bbgirl
