Soilent Green - Learn from the future

What does band name Soilent Green stand for - Soylent Green Film PosterThey come from the slum of New Orleans - from Matairie, Louisiana – and they play death metal, grindcore and sludge metal: Soilent Green.

They must be movie buffs, because the band name is copied directly from the SF movie Soylent Green (with a Greek 'y', or upsilon) from 1973 (director: Richard Fleischer).

That movie, set in the future (in 2022, to be exact), is about the investigation into the brutal murder of a wealthy businessman in a time of environmental pollution, overpopulation, depleted resources, poverty, oceans fished empty and increasing heat as a result of the greenhouse effect. A future, in short, that is not all that different from our present.

If you think about it, 2022 really isn't that far away, is it?
