Band Named "1984 NFL Draft" Makes It Hard to Search YouTube for 1984 NFL Draft

Earlier today I searched YouTube for videos of the 1984 NFL Draft. I didn't find any. What I did find were videos of The 1984 NFL Draft, a band from Dayton, Ohio. Lots of them.

I reached out to the frontman, Joe Anderl, to find out if he had willfully set out to ruin YouTube search results forever.

What's the story behind the band name?

JA: I was raised a huge Nebraska Cornhusker fan. When trying to pick a name for my band I began randomly searching Wikipedia, and I came across the 1984 NFL Draft—the only draft where two Cornhuskers, Irving Fryar and Dean Steinkuhler, were chosen No. 1 and No. 2. I thought the name sounded cool—though I later dropped the "NFL" part so I don't get sued by the league.

You still active?

JA: Yeah, we're working on recording our latest album, "Return to Tallboy Mountain." And I'm still a huge Cornhusker fan. Several of our songs references Nebraska football—in particular “Scarlet and Cream” and “Straight Out of Will Compton.”

In summation: I don't have footage of Mel Kiper Jr's ESPN debut; I do have "Scarlet and Cream Forever".
