A word used by the friends and the members of the band The Academy Is...
"Santi" was the shortened version of "Santiago," the last name of a boy that Adam T. Siska (bassist for the band), knew and strongly disliked in high school. Perhaps "santi" was initially used as a way to refer to Santiago derisively, but eventually the band began to use it as a greeting, a word of praise, or an expression of anything good.
Fans made Adam about a million shirts that said "Santi" on it for a while, which he was delighted about.
"Santi" was also tatooed on Andy Mrotek aka Butcher, the drummer for the band. You can see it for a moment in the video of the band's song "Slow Down." The tatoo was located on his butt before he replaced it with a different one.
TAI fan: what the hell does santi mean????
Other TAI fan: no one's really sure, actually.
The Academy Is...'s lead vocalist William Beckett told BLUNT magazine:
Adam and I went to the same high school, and there was this dude there named Josh Santiago. I was doing a solo project at the time, and I was listening to different music than most people. So this one guy in particular, Josh, gave me a hell of a time, like busted my chops and called me negative names like "fag" and stuff. He was just that kinda guy. So we started saying Santi as everything that wasn't him - everything that was positive, just because he was such a negative dude and such a terrible person. So we started saying Santi as something funny and kinda cool, kinda like a "cheers" or we say it as a greeting.
