The Chicago Punk Database

This site intends to be a collections of bands, members, labels etc. for the Chicago punk scene. This page specifically focuses on the earlier Chicago scene - though there is no formal cutoff date, the information on this page should focus on Chicago punk before 1990. All you have to do to add pages is create an account and start making pages. Click here for more info on how to edit pages.

There are 728 articles in the database, most of which are small and need more information. Some suggestions to get started - add a link to an unlisted band on left-hand side of this page, go to a band's page and add members/instruments, fix any spelling errors, or create new page about your favorite Chicago Punk record. Anything you can add will help tremendously, so please contribute today!

2007 O'Banion's Reunion


The 2007 O'Banion's reunion takes place on Saturday June 9th at Club Foot, 9pm. Even if you never had the chance to be there (like myself), it's a great place to mingle with young punks and old punks alike. It goes on until 3am so bring your stories from the old/new days and your dancing shoes! Many folks from the ChicagoPunkPix message board will be there as well, don't be shy and say hello to anyone you recognize.

Listen to Bloodsport


Chris Bjorklund of Bloodsport was kind enough to give permission to put up the mp3s to their 1985 EP I Am The Game. It's all available for download on their page, please listen and enjoy! This marks the fourth band who has given us permission to put up songs, the other three being DV8, Seismic Waves and Toothpaste. Hopefully there will be more out-of-print songs to come, so stay tuned.
