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 pretty much focuses on Chicago punk before 1990. If you have content to add for the early-to-mid 90s feel free to contribute. 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!

Recent News

Listen to Bloodsport


Chris Bjorklund of Bloodsport was kind enough to give permission to 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! Bloodsport featured many well known members of other Chicago bands such as Strike Under, The Effigies, Pegboy and Jack Scratch. 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.

500 Pages!


Thanks to everyone who helped punkdatabase reach 500 unique pages (which for the record was the Insane War Tomatoes). Pretty damn remarkable when I think about it. There's still a lot of work to be done, especially with regards to venues and some of the more obscure bands. Please keep on contributing and lets see if we can hit a cool 1000! -Gantry
