Before adopting the name "Skrillex" for his musical career, though, Skrilly used to go by the name "Twipz." No, we're not sure where that name came from, but there are a number of MySpace-era tracks attributed to "Twipz" floating around on YouTube:

From First to Last is a band that was signed to Epitaph in the mid-2000s. Skrillex was, at the time, very into their music and heard the band was in need of a guitarist. In speaking with the band, he ended up moving out to Georgia, and somehow became the group's lead singer. He stayed on with the group for three years, sighting issues with not really being a singer (you'd think the need for vocal surgery would have clued him in), and ended up pursuing his solo career in 2007.
