Haha, I remember someone a short while ago on tumblr asked You Blew It! if they could use one of their songs for a band name. Was that you guys?


To contribute to the thread:

Man Overboard - Blink-182 song
Pretty Girls Make Graves - The Smiths song
Funeral For a Friend - Elton John song
Old Gray - Merchant Ships song? (I know the song is Old Grey but)
