The Defoliants were a Chicago punk band from 1984 to 1990. They played a bunch of shows for that time, typically opening up for larger Chicago bands such as Naked Raygun. Their self-described finest moment was opening up for Fugazi at Dreamerz. Their music incorporated heavily from surf music, making their sound more unique than most of their contemporaries.

The final Defoliants show was at McGregor's.



  • Rob and Jeff went to Mather High School

  • They contributed a song "Steakhouse" to the soundtrack for the movie The Borrower
