Defiance, Ohio is an acoustic punk rock band from Columbus, Ohio. They are known for their extensive touring and intense, enthusiastic live shows. They are named after the real town Defiance, Ohio. The band features a violin, cello, and double bass. The band is also known for being involved with fellow DIY-minded record label Plan-It-X Records (often touring with many bands on Plan-It-X Records and participating in multiple Plan-It-X Fests), as well as reoccurring anti-capitalist themes.

They have released four full length LPs, Share What Ya Got, The Great Depression, The Fear, the Fear, the Fear, and Midwestern Minutes in 2010, as well as a handful of split recordings. In the DIY spirit, much of their music is put out by the band themselves, producing their own CDs and CD-Rs, as well as allowing anyone to download all of their music for free from their website under a Creative Commons Attribute. NonCommerical-ShareAlike license. When not releasing their own music, the band works with independent record labels in order to produce their releases. Typically these have been smaller independent labels. However, the band has worked with the more notable though still staunchly independent No Idea Records.

After making the decisions to work with No Idea, the band felt a need to explain their actions and maintain the sense of dialogue that they feel has been consistent in how they've operated themselves as a band. They said that they would have preferred to release the album themselves, but that they did not have the capacity to do so while continuing to keep older releases in print. Their song "Sometimes Motion" was featured in the 2008 Irish documentary Roll Up Your Sleeves.

Most of the members of Defiance, Ohio also participate in other bands, such as Nana Grizol, Pretty Hot, Landlord, Pink Houses, Hymns, Disaster, High Dive, Memento Mori (now defunct) and other musical projects. Ryan Woods the bassist is also part owner of the popular vegan restaurant The Owlery in Bloomington.
