Their original name was The Scam. Drummer Tommy Stewart came in one day when they were doing pictures with a huge cold sore on his lip. For the entire day, Sully was making fun of him because of it. The next day, Sully came in with the same size cold sore on the same spot on his lip. Erna told Sully, "That's God smacking you for making fun of Tommy!" and bam, there was a great name. They knew it was also the name of an Alice in Chains song (from the album Dirt
), but the name was too good to pass up.
