Name, Song, and Photo

The members of Monstro exchanged close to 1,000 emails discussing their group name, team photo and what entrance song to use. They were introduced by their runner-up name, NASA, at their secret School Night performance on April 7, 2010. Their entrance song, Rage Against the Machine's "Testify" was chosen at random out of three possible songs by Justin, the tech person that night. The team photo was taken at Coney Island and features the ocean and some rocks where a couple had been canoodling only minutes earlier. This was one of the few usable photos from that day due to a series of terrible photographers Monstro encountered.
