"The word to describe this song is attitude. From the start it really in you for face. The band just kills it. The guitar solo was amazing it makes you brain want to to explode in a good way. the chorus is on fire. great music".

What’s in a name?
Where does a name like Slot 55 come from? Good question. I read somewhere that Aerosmith was something one of the members used to write on the back of his notebook in high school. He thought “that’s a great name for a band”. The rest is history. When the members of Marshall Tucker needed a name, they looked on the key chain to their band room, and it said Marshall Tucker (likely a prior tenant of the room), and Leonard Skinner was the gym teacher of several of the founding members of the band that became known as Lynyrd Skynyrd. Much in the same way, our story goes like this;
Slot 55′s bassplayer and his his wife are members of a club called Penn Werner. It’s a club with 3 lakes where members can camp, fish, boat, etc. Each year the club mails out new membership cards. One year, when the cards came, Richs’ wife Lisa asked “why does my card say slut 55″? Sure enough, on the back of the card, hand written in permanent marker, the card seemed to say slut 55. Turns out, what is said was slot 55, which is the slot Rich was assigned in the dry boat storage area to park his bass boat. That aside, slut 55 sounded like a great name for a band.
Turns out, if you google slut 55 it seems like it could go all wrong, so to play it safe, the band went with Slot 55. The official logo will still be the hand written “slut 55″ on the actual membership card, and we’ll have lots of fun with it I’m sure. But, what ever you were thinking the deep meaning was, that’s it!
