Rick Muermann (guitar/bass/vocals),

Tony D'Amato (guitar/bass/vocals), and

Chris Johnson (drums). They toured relentlessly cross-country, and even enjoyed a stint on the ever-popular Van's Warped Tour. They were probably best known for their catchy tunes, and humorously well done cover songs (i.e. "Bitch" by Meredith Brooks and "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper to name a few).

They also did a whole EP of covers originally done by female artists entitled ''Taking Back the Covers''. The album's intent was to seemingly expose the anti-masculinity of the original recordings.

They also had a marked affinity for the color pink with their album art and, for a time, their onstage apparel. Pink shorts and Converse All Star shoes were the order of the day at several performances.

CDs included: ''No Fun Intended'', ''The Measure of All Things'', ''Taking Back the Covers'', ''Death of the Party'', and several compilation...
