    Junkyard is a hard rock band formed in 1987 in Los Angeles (but claim to be from Austin TX), with members formerly in Minor Threat, The Big Boys, Decry and Dag Nasty.

    The original line-up of the band included several members who were not a part of the group by the time they began recording. Max Gottlieb was the original guitarist and songwriter, and the original drummer was Johnny Hell. These two members would leave the group, and the lineup stabilized around lead singer David Roach, guitarist Chris Gates, bassist Clay Anthony, drummer Patrick Muzingo, and Brian Baker (guitar, ex. Dag Nasty/Minor Threat).

    The band was signed by Geffen Records in January 1988 with a self-titled Tom Werman-produced debut album issued in 1989, described by Allmusic as incorporating "elements of Southern rock, boogie-woogie, and AC/DCism into one compact sound.". The album featured the singles "Hollywood" and "Simple Man" as well as such well-known album tracks as "Hands Off." This album was followed two years later by Sixes Sevens & Nines, produced by Ed Stasium and featuring contributions from Steve Earle. Anthony left the band shortly before the release of the second album amid drug problems to be replaced by Todd Muscat. The band was dropped by Geffen in 1992, with a third album recorded but not released, and disbanded shortly afterwards. The unreleased third album was subsequently issued in 2008 as XXX. « hide
