"Jimmy" is Linton's younger brother, who had a weight problem. Adkins' younger brother drew a picture on Jimmy's door of him putting a globe in his mouth, and wrote on it "Jimmy Eat World."?

Yup, that's it.

Polar Bear Club was named after the song of the same title by Silent Majority

No matter where this thread goes, this will be the best song mentioned that spawned a band name.

Because they probably had no idea what the Coney Island Polar Bear Club was.

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)

Yes, you are correct, this is where the band got their name from. Not sure why they chose to spell it differently, though!

When they're really obvious, the names kinda bug me at first. I'm constantly reminded of the material they're referencing and I guess it just feels odd to advertise your influences so clearly in your band name. Maybe a stupid opinion, but that's just me.
