  The Germs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Germs were a punk rock band from Los Angeles in the late 1970s.
The Germs, despite all expectations, slowly developed a sound that was extremely aggressive, hyper-competent, and highly influential -- although throughout their career, they would have a reputation as a chaotic live band.
The canonical lineup of the band was often accused of willfully skirting the boundary between genius and disaster.

In retrospect, it's easy to dismiss the Germs as the epitome of LA's early identipunk scene.
After that, (GI) —; "Germs Incognito" — is a revelation, a kinetic outburst of brute punk force.
Two years of tightening and a new drummer (Don Bolles, later of 45 Grave) turned the Germs into a manic punk locomotive, speeding along with Damned intensity in spite of tinny production by Joan Jett.

The Germs were, in my opinion, one of the great and essential American punk bands.
I think people become too obsessed with the band's image, that they were these anarchistic drug fiends who could barely play their instruments, that they were these social outcasts who defined everything that was considered "punk" and "punk behavior" at the time.
This is the exact definition of what punk is. The Germs were and still are the greatest punk band ever(I would say X is, but they are more universal).

The Germs, like so many great bands, were not "about the music" - that was really a small part of what made them special.
I don't get the point of a Germs reunion, but I never got the point of the Germs.
I know life's short 'n' all, but I really do feel the Germs were a singularity: not just great punk but really no-holds-barred cage match punk, the stuff that sorta makes good on the threat.

On-stage, their gigs bordered on performance art, with Crash in full Iggy frenzy, diving into the crowd, adorning himself with whatever foodstuffs the audience provided, wearing less-and-less clothing, all done while the band cranked out noisy spasms of simple, but effective, rock noise.
Never capturing this mania on record (how could you?), the Germs' recording career is based on the sole record made during Crash's short life.
Produced by Germs fan Joan Jett, (GI) was a fine hunk of early L.A. punk rock that was more literate and compelling that what was being offered by lesser local luminaries such as the Zeroes and the Weirdos.

The Germs had released only one album, G.I., before their leader, Darby Crash (ne Paul Beahm), 22, OD'd in a suicide pact (the other participant survived).
Through this lens, Germs vocalist and songwriter Darby Crash appears as both a taunting jester of the burgeoning West Coast punk scene as well as mischievous if not malevolent pied piper leading impressionable thrill seekers into would-be decadence of the type predicted by Oswald Spengler in The Decline Of The West.
The Germs had a big show at the Kings Palace (soon to be Rajis) and the Red Army showed up and got in front of the stage.

So, I’ve made a few posts over the years mentioning the movie “What We Do is Secret”; and also some other info about the reunited Germs with Shane West singing for a show or two.
Not only did the Germs play a few “reunion” shows (and I stress the quotes around “reunion”) but now, apparently they are even gonna tour with Shane West singing and billing this as a “Germs Return Tour”.
Man, I really love the Germs, but not only is this entirely disrespectful to Darby Crash, but shit man, this just flat-out ruins the legacy of the Germs!
