Did you know that?
The name "Minus the Bear" comes from an in-joke among the band members, referring to the 70Â´s television program, B. J. and the Bear. "A friend of the band had gone on a date,â€ť explains singer-guitarist Jake Snider, "and one of us asked him afterwards how the date went. Our friend said, Â´You know that TV show from the Â´70s B.J. and The Bear? It was like that... minus The Bear.Â´ Thatâ€™s the straight truth."
