Did You Know: The Antique Hearts


Raleigh, NC band The Antique Hearts named themselves after fellow Raleigh band American Aquarium‘s debut album & title track Antique Hearts?

With the summer I confide the thoughts of what it means to be alive
Like a Polaroid developing with the light
What do you know about me, other than what you can see?
Behind this broken smile lies an antique heart

But wait there’s more! American Aquarium actually got their name from Wilco’s song “I am trying to break your heart”:

I am an American aquarium drinker
I assassin down the avenue
I’m hiding out in the big city blinking
What was I thinking when I let go of you?

Wilco named themselves after the military abbreviation for “will comply.” Oh well. But who knows…maybe The Antique Hearts will inspire someone to keep the name trend going!
