Dayglo Abortions

Canadian punk band from Victoria, British Columbia producing lyrics that stand out by a total lack of respect for social standards.

The band was originally called Sic Fucks, but when the members (wrongly) suspected that that name had been claimed by legendary punk rocker GG Allin (1956-1993) - it probably concerned the name The Scumfuc - they did not want it any more.

What is the band Dayglo Abortions named after - Graffiti is a fun crimeTheir promoter had sent them out on the streets with a whole box of Dayglo paint spray (to announce the next concert by airbrushing texts on walls everywhere with fluorescent paint) and they liked the name Dayglo.

They agreed that the noun they saw printed most frequently in the newspapers the next day needed to be added to Dayglo. Incidentally one newspaper featured a big story about a doctor who had carried out abortions.

That lead to Dayglo Abortions.
