Bear Band

Is it just me? Like you know how if you’re thinking about buying an old Volvo, suddenly the streets appear to be overrun with old Volvos.

Well, maybe because I’m a bear making music, suddenly every other band seems to have the word bear in their moniker. So I took a few minutes to do some research and hear are the stats:

Bands that have ‘bear’ in their name according to the top 200 results from’s music search and the iTunes Music Store: 53.

Number of bands on Myspace Music with ‘bear’ in their name: 892. (it should be known that this list includes many false positives like The Unbearables.)

Podcasts with ‘bear’ in their name on the iTunes Music Store: 2. The Bearfoot Hookers and yours truly, Podington.

Bearly any.

    It’s only slightly a false positive- we mispelled our band name on purpose because one of the guys in our band used to dress up in a bear suit and dance around at shows. True story. 🙂

    That was before the whole zombie thing….
