Mar 7, 8:37 PM ET [DIV class=spacer][/DIV]COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The bass player for Florida punk rock band This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb said she can't believe police continue to take bikes sporting stickers with her band's name as serious threats.

"If you were going to build a bomb in your bike, you're not going to advertise it," Terry Johnson said Tuesday. "I'm kind of shocked and amazed every time it happens."

On Monday, police in Athens, Ohio, about 105 kilometres southeast of Columbus, dropped a charge of inducing panic against an Ohio University graduate student they blamed for causing a bomb scare on campus last week because of a sticker with the band's name on his bike.

The student, Patrick Hanlin, of Three Rivers, Mich., isn't the first fan to cause a stir with the sticker, Johnson said. But she said it's more common for fans to simply have their bikes impounded, than for streets to be closed down and a bomb squad called in.

Johnson said there's no particular reason for the Pensacola, Fla., band's name. She said the members came up with it while sitting around trying to think of a name, "the same way any band gets their name."

They don't plan to change it, despite the confusion.

"We've been a band for 10 years," she said.

"We can't stop here. This is bat country."
