that's a really bad band name.
They lifted it from this crazy guy in Portland named Charles Steen who alleged that the Dr. Seuss company (more specifically, his widow) had plagiarized a children's book he had written. He used to rave about this all the time at shows and parties, and made these crazy pornographic paintings involving various Suess characters. Anyway, he wrote this play about his ordeal, and called it The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.
He eventually got a few years probation for all the weird threats he made to the Seuss widow.
