The initial name of the band was L.S.D., read as an anagram of Loro Sono Diversi (they are different). For the ambiguous meaning of the term, the group becomes Skanderground, combining the words Ska (the kind of music performed) and Undeground (precisely because the trials were done in a basement). The cover to which it devotes the band are oriented towards a Ska punk shades, including the notorious Ska-p, which are arranged several songs.
