Phantom Planet - Ever seen an astronaut shrink?

How Phantom Planet got their band name - 1961 movieA garage rock spirit controlled the repertoire of these pop rockers originating from Los Angeles, California.

In their quest for a nice name they went back in time, to the year 1961, when B-movie The Phantom Planet (director: William Marshall) was released ('See! A 6 ft. astronaut shrink to 6 inches before your very eyes!').

Tradition has it that the band came up with the name while they were in a Pizza Hut establishment savoring a Pepperoni Lover's Pizza.

Active: 1994-2008, USA
