The past year has been a breakout year for the London-based band, Bastille. Their hit “Pompeii” reached No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative chart and has over 150 million views on YouTube. Since the group’s name originates from frontman Dan Smith’s birthday (which is the same day as France’s national holiday, Bastille Day), we got to thinking, what would the name be if Dan had a different birthday?
Ya can’t make this stuff up.
Which should be every day but is technically September 22nd.
Yes, this is a holiday. Of sorts.
This is also a real holiday. Thank you to Build-A-Bear for bringing this to our attention.
Fortunately, also a real thing.
