Jimmy Eat World offer advice on band-naming by sharing their own regrets
Jimmy Eat World took to Twitter Friday night to offer bands some advice on band-naming all while sharing how one "dumb ass party" led to the regretful way they named theirs.
"Advice for new bands," Jimmy Eat World posted on Twitter Friday night. "When coming up with a band name, make sure it's acronym displayed really large on your artwork or t-shirts won't be complicating matters. You're welcome."
The tweet-turned-thread ended up becoming an official Jimmy Eat World history lesson where the band revealed how one party and a time-crunch led to their band name with one regretful acronym.
The Twitter conversations that followed only made this entire thread even better.
