Smithereens - Bugs' best enemy

What inspired band name Smithereens - Yosemite Sam - Bugs Bunny cartoonRock band from Carteret, New Jersey.

A cartoon character gave the band its name. We are talking here about Yosemite Sam - yes we are - the heavily mustached hothead who is the archenemy of cartoon rabbit Bugs Bunny.

Sam has an ultra short fuse and in situations in which his anger takes over he shouts 'Varmint, I'm gonna blow you to smithereens!'.

For the sake of completeness: a varmint is a wild animal that causes problems.

Active: 1980-present, USA
