D-A-D (Disneyland After Dark)
D-A-D began playing together in the early 1980s in Copenhagen, Denmark, under their original band name Disneyland After Dark.
D-A-D released their first EP in 1985 and has now been together for more than twenty years, with only one change in the lineup, as Laust Sonne replaced former drummer Peter Lundholm Jensen in 1999. The band's ninth studio album - Scare Yourself - was released May 23, 2005.
When the group made their international breakthrough in 1989, they had to change the band name to D.A.D. to avoid an impending lawsuit from the Walt Disney Company. In 1995, the "spelling" changed to D:A:D, to make it more obvious that it was an abbreviation. Finally in 2000, the band story became one of advanced punctuation as the spelling was changed to the more internet-friendly D-A-D.
D-A-D is a Danish rock band originally "Disneyland After Dark", a name that had to be changed after a threatening lawsuit from The Walt Disney Company.
