JFA - Can't always get what you want

What band name JFA stands for - John HinckleyThe acronym under which JFA (Phoenix, Arizona) performs stands for Jodie Foster's Army. That's a reference to John Warnock Hinckley, Jr. (born 1955), the man who in 1981 failed to assassinate US president Ronald Reagan.

Hinckley was mad about teen actress Jodie Foster whom he stalked for months, but whose amorous attention he did not manage to attract despite all his efforts. In the completely misguided assumption that a deed as big as the murder of Reagan would get him the much desired interest, Hinckley shot on the president. He is in a mental home since then.

Active: 1981-present, USA
