    Being from Portugal myself I couldn't help but ask why are they called Portugal The Man?

    They're called Portugal. The Man because they liked the idea of something with the spirit of an enitre country embodied in a single person (or something like that?)... Why Portugal? I guess they liked the sound of Portugal more than other country names....?

    So stoked on this competition though!
