Living End - Scratching the surface

How Living End found their band name - Rock Around The Clock filmPunkabilly band from the second largest city in Australia, Melbourne (Victoria).

The band owes its name to guitarist/vocalist Chris Cheney, who during a binge with friends slid a video cassette into the player showing the classic film Rock Around The Clock (1956).

Drunk or not, the film was watched to the end, so until the very last shot, of a dancing crowd with the traditional last words The End projected over it.

And it included a little joke by the director of the film: suddenly the word Living is squeezed in between the words The and End, resulting in The Living End.

Cheney knew enough.

Active: 1994-present, AUS
