"I just realized this week that people who don't know who we are hear our name and think we're a hardcore band," Geller said.
Even two years after the event that "changed the world forever" people still get alarmed over their name, which was chosen as a metaphor for Geller and Dykes' personal and professional relationship. "I guess we'll always get those questions about our name," he said. "The questions were 10-fold less on our last tour then the tour before. We can't worry about it. It's our name and we're proud of it. We debated about changing it, but nothing else seems to fit."
I am the World Trade Center was named after a symbol of New York, the city where we got our start. The Twin Towers represented many things to us, their giant presence on the skyline reminded us every day of what an amazing and overwhelming place we were living in. Also, the two towers, equal and independent yet still one entity are a metaphor for the relationship Amy and I have developed both professionally and personally. As an additional show of respect, I am the World Trade Center will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their record "Out of the Loop" to the United Way of New York's September 11th Fund

I guess we'll just add that to the list of 'prophecies' about the event...
I think it wouldn't have been as hard to predict as we think, if only we were paying attention to the financial bits more closely, and if we knew some behind the scenes 'theory'.
I know I wasn't paying attention then, but I am sure someone that was on top of their research at that time could figure out what was going to happen.
