Fugazi is a word that was used by Americans in Vietnam, and is slang
concerning those who died in ambush (something like that), so the acronmym
is Fucked Up, Got Ambushed, Zipped In.

This explains pretty well what Fish is trying to say with the album: "This
world is totally fugazi". Fugazi is close to a popular net-acronym, Foobar,
which is derived from Fubar and means "Fucked up beyond all recognition"
(sorry for the language...)

Fugazi is definately _not_ a vietnamese word as there is no Z in the
vietnamese alphabet.
