How Wake Up Bedhead Got Its Name

As in, how did Wake Up Bedhead get its name?

Wake Up Bed­head was actu­al­ly Wake Up Bed Head after the name of a song that I wrote. The girl I dat­ed broke up with me a month pre­vi­ous to the song being writ­ten. I’ve nev­er actu­al­ly played the song beyond the one night I wrote and record­ed it. Grant­ed, I’ve lis­tened to it a few times.


How did the song, Wake Up Bed Head, go?

The cho­rus went some­thing like this:

            Wake Up Wake Up

            That’s not me in your bed.

            Wake Up Wake Up

            So why am I in your head?

There’s a bit more to it, but that’s where the bed­head lyric came from. I’m not sure the song was that great any­way.


So why use a bad song as a band name?

Some­how, I thought the title sound­ed cool, so I knew maybe I should rewrite it some day or use it as a band name. It was fun­ny when I pre­sent­ed it to the band because every­one loved it right away. I don’t remem­ber any of the oth­er names that were going around, but it was unan­i­mous from the moment I pre­sent­ed it. We were Wake Up Bed­head.


Wake Up Bedhead: Pajama Party

My friend James and I had a talk about the band name in the ear­ly days. He sug­gest­ed that if we use this band name, we could wear paja­mas to the show and call every show a paja­ma par­ty. Nat­u­ral­ly, I thought that sound­ed like a good idea. Every­one loves a rea­son to dress up, and there real­ly are a wide vari­ety of paja­mas out there.


One Man Pajama Party

Ok, so no one ever start­ed com­ing to the shows in their paja­mas, but then again, this is the first the Inter­net has ever heard that sto­ry. Instead, I’ve played all but one or two shows in paja­mas while the rest of the band wears what­ev­er they want to. Is it too much to ask for a paja­ma par­ty show?


The true meaning of the band name: Conspiracies anyone?

The real mean­ing behind the band is a desire to wake you up in such a hur­ry that you don’t have time to fix your hair. “Wake me up for what?” you say.

Aliens are try­ing to help us evolve into a high­er con­scious­ness.

We have jump room tech­nolo­gies.

Twen­ty years ago, the iPad would have looked like alien tech­nol­o­gy.

We were orig­i­nal­ly cre­at­ed as a slave race to mine Gold for a plan­et with a dying atmos­phere.

There are peo­ple among us, who are real­ly rep­til­ians. They work in all the key posi­tions con­trol­ling the world.

Every­one is afraid. Fear is their game. They want you to be afraid. Fun­ny that good Chris­tians are often described as God-fear­ing. There is noth­ing to fear.


Maybe, maybe not.

Yeah, that’s prob­a­bly not what it means.
