* AGoodNameForARockBand: It's a reference to a folk song: the coffin of a beloved being borne to the grave by sixteen horses. For a very brief period, their name was just Horsepower--they changed because too many people thought it was a drug reference.

That, in a nutshell, is what 16 Horsepower sounds like: [[GothRock Gothic]] CountryMusic, with influences from bluegrass, European folk and alternative country. The band played once in 1992 in UsefulNotes/LosAngeles, then reformed in Denver, Colorado. Throughout the 90's, they made a name for themselves in the Denver music scene and in Europe, with music ranging from haunting to apocalyptic, and lyrics focusing on the fear of God, wrongdoing, and redemption. In the 00's, they began drifting apart and focusing on side projects; in 2005, they officially disbanded.
