Asked about the origins of the band’s name in a December 1982 interview with Flipside magazine, Kevin Seconds recalled:
“…I was ordering The Dils single “198 Seconds of The Dils” from Bomp and I wrote it on a desk and the ink it said 97 Seconds; and then we saw this movie Day of the Jackals or something and all through it there were references to 7 Seconds, and the Dils were like our idols… So we were looking for a name and we were looking at this racing book and it said 7 seconds and we said, ‘fuck it, must be an omen,’ so we picked it. It’s a short, intense name.”
