Fratellis - Not Goonies?

How did the Fratellis get their band name - Goonies - Film poster - Steven SpielbergScottish garage rockers from Glasgow with a band name that was (is) the center of much speculation.

This is because in the film The Goonies (1985) a Fratelli family makes its appearance: Italian criminals who make their money simply by printing it themselves.

Yet the band members - all of them adorned with surname Fratelli - deny that the film served as a printing plate.

Their bassist, Barry, is in fact really called Fratelli; the two other members adopted the name, to endorse the 'family bond' so to speak.
