Musicians
    (1980-1985)
    Born in San Pedro, California
    D. Boon (April 1, 1958-December 22, 1985), guitar and vocals
    Mike Watt (December 20, 1957- ), bass guitar
    George Hurley (September 4, 1958- ), drums
    Recorded the albums 'The Punch Line' (1981), 'What Makes a Man Start Fires?' (1983), 'The Politics of Time' (1983), 'Double Nickels on the Dime' (1984), 'Three Way Tie (For Last)' (1985) and 'Ballot Result' (1987)
    Subject of the documentary 'We Jam Econo' (2005)
    Their first 'full length' album crammed 18 songs into 15 minutes.
    They insisted their name was not inspired by the brevity of their songs.
    Hurley sported a protruding clump of hair nicknamed 'The Unit.'
    They got more mass exposure from 'Jackass' using their song 'Corona' as a theme than from any of their albums.
    After the release of 'Double Nickels,' they played 57 concerts in 63 days.
    They played their last tour with another emerging independent band, R.E.M..
    They broke up after Boon died in a van accident.
    Watt has since dedicated every record he worked on to Boon's memory.
    The Red Hot Chili Peppers dedicated the album 'Blood Sugar Sex Magick' to Watt.
    Sublime sampled Boon saying 'Punk rock changed our lives' for the song 'Waiting for My Ruca.'
