I know Wikipedia isn't a reliable source at all, but the pages of 3 of the band members mention what language they are. Dexter's page says he's Mexican and Irish, Noodles German and Greg also German. Scroll down on all the pages until you see Categories. I'm just curious if this information is true.

Dexter is from Holland, that's written in his name.

Noodles is from China.

And I always thought K was for Korea. But it could also be for Kazakhstan so I have my doubts.... it could also mean Kurdish which would explain why they don't play in Turkey...

I heard they tossed out guitar picks to the crowd, with offspring-ish artwork on it.

Jew:Nation
Judaism:Religion

Just for information.

Speaking of ancestry;Holland is kinda Irish name;also the name Keith derived from some Scottish word 'cet';meaning wood.You can find some Scottish families use the word as their surnames.It wasn't used as a first name before 19th century.

Wasserman;obviously Germanic,also Jewish.Probably 'Wassermann' was the original name.

Kriesel sounds kinda nordic too,probably Germanic again.'Kreisel' is some winter-sports term in German means 'gyro'.

Welty;I don't know.Maybe something with Welsh-Wales or 'Waldo',a German word means nowadays 'jungle' and in the old times 'rule'.

Parada;hispanic.

so his grandfather/grandmother could have been a german-jewish emigrant(you know- > the holocaust thing in the 40's ...)
that would be very plausible

Wassermann is absolutely a german name
(BTW: In english it would be "Waterman", strange , but funny :D )

.

it should be german again, yes
there are about 342 people in germany named Kriesel
(source: http://www.verwandt.de/karten/absolut/kriesel.html )

BTW: if you ask yourself, WTF? why do they all have german ancestors: The german the most ancestry of americans is German , it's about 15% )

Jew is not a nation, nor a nationality... do you think that jews come from a place called Jewland or something?
