Why the name Johnny Cupcakes?
After graduating high school and taking a break from college, my friends and I started a hardcore/metal band. I also scored a job at a local record store where my coworkers labeled me with many completely random nicknames for no reason whatsoever. One day, while ordering our band’s t-shirts from a print shop, I thought it would be funny to get a few others printed with my nickname, Johnny Cupcakes. The next day, I wore my newly created Johnny Cupcakes shirt to work. Customers kept asking where they could get a “Johnny Cupcakes” shirt. Even weeks later, they were still asking!
