This band, originally was called “The Noble 5”, took their name as a way to make fun of the gym teacher, who would hassle them about the length of their hair, at the high school they attended in Jacksonville Florida.  The song is from the band’s third album and it’s title – well just think Remington-  Smith and Wesson and don’t let the cops catch ya with it cause it’s probably stolen!
