21 years and over
It all started one fateful night at a party. The Marks were fucked up, as usual, and talking about their shared love of awful noise (aka punk music). It was inevitable; The Fuckers were born. The Marks found two other Fuckers, Lewie and Phil. Over the summer of 2010, The Fuckers started cranking out songs, each one shittier than the last. Gallons of booze later, The Fuckers made some live recordings of their sloppy brand of punk.
You couldn't pay me to go back to high school but i sure as hell will sing songs about it.
The Forty Whacks are a progressive punk band from Beach Park, Illinois that formed in late 2009 out of the ashes of a cover band that never got off the ground.
The Forty Whacks have been compared to Bad Religion, Naked Raygun, and The Effigies. They've recorded one EP (2010-2011) under their own label Moriarty Records, released a Video for the single "Ever Since that Day", and have had positive reviews in punknews.org, Big Take Over Magazine (issue 69), and Reviewsic.com. Band Members are Johnny Pierro (vocals), The Rutledge Brothers (guitar, bass & vocals), and Marc Harman (drums & organization). 2012 will bring a follow up EP, brand new shows, and projects.
