It's a NEW band but they are still rooted in the old band and perform songs from all eras. Stu picked the name and he's retired from the band now so that name has a totally different meaning to the three members now. They are and will always be This Town Needs Guns. They just choose to simply use TTNG instead of the full name. And 9 years ago when they named it, people weren't walking into schools and gunning down kids either.




uh, yeah, they were.

They should not change their name because of some coward shooting up a school. Anyone that backs these laws is an idiot.

I appreciate the reason for the change, but now it just makes me think of a TTNY typo.

Except TTNG is much more known, so it should really be the other way around.

Heard some controversy over their name with the recent mass shootings. It's a shame if it is, but I wonder if that's the reasoning?

Didnt even think about that. Man...that makes me mad. So stupid.

This is sort of different since those are all words with the vowels removed and TTNG is an acronym.

Thanks, because I was wondering who would change their name right before an album drop.

Kinda weird to change it the day before the new album drops. Also, hopefully there aren't any bonus tracks on that Japanese version because I hate when bands do that.
