Had Enough (Breaking Benjamin)

Had Enough-

Breaking Benjamin is a band I discovered  a few years ago and the first song I heard of their’s was Forget It, another popular song. This band is from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and includes Benjamin Burnley, Aaron Fink, Mark Klepaski, and Chad Szeliga.

Formed in 1998, the band came up with their name from an incident when Burnley was singing a Nirvana song during an open mic night. He kicked the microphone stand over, breaking it. The person who owned the microphone walked onto the stage and said, “I’d like to thank Benjamin for breaking my fucking microphone.” In 1999 the band changed its name to “Plan 9” then in late 2001, after many changes, the band changedback to their previous name “Breaking Benjamin”  According to the band, the Breaking Benjamin logo is a variation of the Celtic knot, with four interlocking “B”s.
