Butthole Surfers

210 240
The Butthole Surfers are an influential American punk/alternative rock/psychedelic rock band. The band was founded by Gibby Haynes and Paul Leary in San Antonio, Texas in 1982. Incorporating elements of hardcore, psychedelia, and performance art, their live shows also made heavy use of strobe lights, background films (of note, footage of penis reconstruction surgery) and naked dancers, the Butthole Surfers' live performances adding a dimension that completely side-stepped the arena rock grandiosity and secured them a prominent place in the cult annals. Their best known songs are 1994's "Pepper" (a left-field Top 40 hit) and 2001's "Dracula From Houston".

While their line-up has changed frequently over the years, they have maintained a core membership of Haynes (vocals), Leary (guitar), and King Coffey (drums). For much of their career the band also included Teresa Taylor as a second drummer. The band has been through numerous bass players, including Jeff Pinkus and Mark Kramer (of Bongwater and Shimmy Disc).

Their song "Who Was in My Room Last Night?" can be found on the hit console game Guitar Hero II (without most of the 'I'm flying' intro)
