Return of O.W.N. - Week 5 = "Hold Me Tight"

This week we're discovering the little talked about classic rock band from the U.K. called "The Beatles". Don't know why they decided to name themselves after a bunch of bugs but maybe Papa Roach knows...

Econoline Crush
I found an interview posted online years ago regarding the band's name origin. The band was going to send a demo tape with FedEx to a record label that was specializing in the industrial music genre. They were "under the gun" to try to find a band name because the FedEx driver was waiting at the door. One of the band members wanted to use the name Crush, and he was set on that. Trevor, the vocalist was sitting there trying to think quick of an idea. He than thought of what got him into music; When he was a kid his family didn't have a car - they had an Econoline van and Trevor would listen to music while they were riding in it. It had a pretty good stereo and Trevor's friends would always want him to take the Econoline out so they could listen to music all together. This recollection gave him the idea of naming the band "Econoline Crush". He suggested the name to the members, no one said anything, they were just sitting there quietly while the FedEx driver was looking at them. He just wrote "Econoline Crush" on the CD, stuck it in and said that they could always change it later.
