Jack & Jack Almost Had a Totally Different Name!

Jack & Jack Almost Had a Totally Different Name!

We’ve always known Jack Gilinsky and Jack Johnson by Jack & Jack but did you know they originally had a different group name?

While the pop-rap duo always used Jack & Jack on Vine, they decided to change their name when they started to create music to be taken more seriously.

So when they dropped their first song, they originally used the name Indoor Recess but it ended up really confusing fans!

“They had no idea what the song was called, or what we were called! So, eventually we just ended up changing it from ‘Chill Pad Deluxe – Indoor Recess‘ to ‘Indoor Recess – Jack & Jack.’ And the song is now called ‘Indoor Recess,’ even though that’s supposed to be the group name,” the guys told TigerBeat.

Jack Johnson Publicly Denounces Trump on Twitter: 'If You Support Him Unfollow Me'

Jack Johnson of Jack & Jack is no stranger to making his political views heard on Twitter.

Today, he went one step further, publicly announcing that he disapproves of President Donald Trump and that anyone who disagrees with him should unfollow his accounts.

“I denounce donald trump (we ain’t capitalizing his name anymore f-k all that) and everything he stands for,” Jack tweeted. “If you support him unfollow me.”

This comes after he tweeted that “We are letting a crusty old racist run our country right now,” and that “This is really getting out of hand.”

“He’s a good president and he’s not a racist and he loves America I don’t understand why you have to put labels on people,” one Twitter user responded.

“Unfollow me. Right now!” Jack responded to her. “I’m not playin….”

He definitely isn’t.

PSA: Jack & Jack Hate Dabbing So Definitely Do Not Dab At Them Anytime Soon

Jack & Jack played a rousing game of “1 Has to Go” with Billboard recently, and we learned a ton about them.

Most notably, both members of the pop-rap duo despise dabbing. When presented with the options of getting rid of hover boarding, dabbing, or fidget spinners, both immediately shouted “Dabbing!” in unison.

“Just get out,” Jack Johnson said. “We don’t like it.”

“Stop dabbing,” Jack Gilinksy added vehemently.

“If I see you dab, I will call you out and I will get in your face,” Jack J. added.

We also learned from the video that they are both huge Eminem fans, fans of boneless chicken wings, and never got into “Gangnam Style.”
