The Weirdos


The Weirdos are an American punk rock band from Los Angeles, California. They formed in 1976. The Weirdos’ first release was a 7-inch EP, “Destroy All Music,” released in 1977 on Greg Shaw’s Bomp! Records. It was followed by the 1978 single “We Got the Neutron Bomb,” released on the Los Angeles punk label Dangerhouse. By the beginning of 1977, the Weirdos were able to pack clubs (eventually including the Whisky a Go Go, The Roxy and later The Masque) as a headlining band. Known for their zany stage costumes and antics, the band helped shape the vigorous and experimental early Los Angeles punk scene and served as an inspiration to a crop of new bands.
