  • JOHN CAFFERTY and the BEAVER BROWN BAND - did the classic soundtrack to the movie Eddie and the Cruisers. The band from the Cranston Rhode Island area was practicing in one of the band member's garages when they saw a Dutch Boy paint can that was called Beaver Brown.
  • WEEZER - Band member Rivers Cuomo had the nickname Weezer in school because of a breathing problem.
