They should ask Minus the Bear how they came up with their name
(unless it's already been asked and answered)

From the wiki:

The name "Minus the Bear" comes from an inside joke among the band members, referring to the 70's TV show B. J. and the Bear. "A friend of the band had gone on a date,” explains singer-guitarist Jake Snider, "and one of us asked him afterwards how the date went. Our friend said, 'You know that TV show from the '70s B.J. and The Bear? It was like that minus the bear.' That’s the straight truth."

A few years ago when I first heard of Bonnaroo I thought it was an Australian festival, because it reminded me of kangaroo. The brain makes really silly associations.
