The Heartless Bastards Tuesday March 10, 2009

This could be one of the best stories behind a band’s name that I have ever come across:

According to Wennerstrom, the name of the band comes from a question on a Mega Touch trivia quiz game at a bar. A question asked the name of Tom Petty’s backing band, and one of the options was “Tom Petty and the Heartless Bastards.” She thought it was funny, and used it when she later formed a band.

Anyways, I’ve been listening to a lot of Ohio’s The Heartless Bastards lately. All due to Joey Doyle’s personal recommendation’s and Music-Critic Nathan’s Iron-fisted tyranny, but either way they’re a great band.

… And because I’m running into a bit of a stalemate finding great things on the net to talk about, I thought I’d share them with you.
