Yeah, gotta be honest, any band unoriginal enough to put Alaska in their name will never get my vote. Hey! Alaska. Eye Alaska. Oceans Ate Alaska. Burn Alaska. Seriously, stop it!
I certainly understand where you are coming from, but if it make it any better, our name actually means something, we didn't just use the word alaska because it sounds cool, haha. If you haven't read Looking For Alaska by John Green, you definitely should because it's a great book.
