A Bear With A Car On Top officially started in 2006 after Brenden returned to California. We began jamming and wrote the songs "Wylee Stylee," "Babylon By Bus," "Budasarus Rex," "4 black and milds," and "Jellyfish," as well as some others.
At the time we were obsessed with a Japanese video game called "Katamari Damacy" where you roll up a ball of trash that gets bigger and bigger until you roll up the entire planet and roll into the sun. A particular level takes place at a zoo and after rolling up a large mammal we asked, "Whats bigger than a bear, man?" Then we saw a bear walking down the path with a car on its back. "Oh! A BEAR WITH A CAR ON TOP!"
