My name is ____

We asked some local bands how the @#%! they came up with a name like that. Here's what they told us.


Zach Hale
ADDverse Effects
“Our name is a double entendre. The initial thought was, as a band, when you add the verse, these are the effects. But the flesh-meaning is a thought against current popular hip-hop, which pins us as a poor side-effect of that nonsense. We love that we sound nothing like the shit on the radio now, so ADDverse Effects is a good problem to have.” —Joshua Rehanek, vocals

Kings of leon sing about Okie ties


Gazette staff
While beloved by many, August: Osage County hasn’t exactly won over critics … here in Oklahoma, anyway. It’s fitting, then, that the star-studded film’s soundtrack features an Oklahoma band (kinda-sorta) in Kings of Leon, who, similarly, are as polarizing as the movie itself.
