Death Cab for Cutie

The name was taken from the song "Death Cab for Cutie" released in 1967 by the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. The song tells the tale of Cutie, who goes out on the town when her lover wants her to stay home and ends up in a cab that runs a red light and crashes. The sad subject matter was recorded as a parody of Elvis Presley's 1957 hit "(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear," sung in 1950s doo-wop style with honky-tonk piano and blaring saxophones. [] The song was performed by the Bonzos in the Beatles film Magical Mystery Tour. In a 2011 interview, Gibbard stated, "The name was never supposed to be something that someone was going to reference 15 years on. So yeah, I would absolutely go back and give it a more obvious name."
