Rumor had it that the band's name was taken from the Alice in Chains' song "God Smack." However, frontman Sully Erna stated in a 1999 interview, "I was making fun of somebody who had a cold sore on his lip and the next day I had one myself and somebody said, 'it looks like God smacked your face for making fun.' The name stuck and they went by Godsmack from then on. We were aware of the Alice in Chains song but didn't really think much about it. It's a cool song and the name had meaning for us."
