The rude ska, street punk group entered the conference room singing one of their songs from their album. They explained why they named themselves Athena as well as singing a little piece from the first ever Turkish entry from 1975, Seninle bir dakika.
Lead singer Gökhan Özoğuz said: �We made three songs for the national selection. One of them was in a punk style, one was ska, and the third was For real which was chosen by televoting�.
They were also quizzed by a Greek press member as to the reasoning behind the groups name. Guitarist and backing vocalist Hakan Özoğuz said: �Athena is the goddess of wisdom as you might know. That�s why we have chosen this name.�
The band also sang a little piece of Seninle bir dakika and announced that the band�s single will also be released in Germany.
