The Vinyl District - Joe Elliott Interview Quote

Bludgeon Riffola Name

"The name Bludgeon Riffola came about when we did a gig before we got signed and it was reviewed by some local or national paper critic. He just tore us to shreds and said we sounded like "bludgeon riffola." We just laughed at it saying, well it sounds like Italian food or something, and we turned the negative into a positive when we made our first Def Leppard EP, we said we are going to make our own label like Purple Hat, Swan Song, and etcetera."
