The Germs

The Germs are a punk rock band from Los Angeles formed in the late 1970s. Their 1977 single, Forming/Sexboy (live), isgenerally regarded as the first punk record from Los Angeles.The band started when Paul Beahm and Georg Ruthenberg decidedthey should start a band after being kicked out of University High for antisocial behaviour, allegedly for using 'mind control' onfellow students. The (initially hypothetical) band was named "Sophistifuck & The Revlon Spam Queens," with Beahm (then'Bobby Pyn,' and later Darby Crash) on vocals, Ruthenberg (then and later called Pat Smear) on guitar, an early member calledDinky on bass, and Michelle Baer playing drums.
