Russell Crowe: 40 Odd Foot of Grunge

A hapless journalist once asked Russell Crowe what was happening with his band "40 Odd Foot of Grunge."

"When I came up with the name of the band, I wanted to come up with something unique," he replied, fixing the woman with a withering gaze, "that you'd remember."

The room dissolved into laughter: The band's name? "30 Odd Foot of Grunts."

[The band was supposedly named after a stage direction from the movie Virtuosity. After the Grunts shook things up at Stubbs BBQ in Austin in August 2000, the city's mayor decreed August 11th "TOFOG Day" in their honor.]

[311 got its name from the police code for indecent exposure in California.]
