About Naked Raygun

Among the most influential Midwest punk bands of the 1980s, Naked Raygun came out of Chicago with a powerful mix of anthemic melodies, slashing and grinding guitars, shout-along choruses, percolating rhythms, and lyrics that focused on the overlap between the personal and the political. In their hometown, they were widely acknowledged as a popular and important group on the scene as punk evolved into hardcore, and through their approach became more streamlined with the passage of time, although the force and passion of their music never lost its potency. 1985's Throb Throb, their first full-length album, was the LP that established them as a force to be reckoned with, 1988's Jettison was widely regarded as their finest album, and 2021's Over the Overlords was their first studio album in over 30 years; they had split up in 1992 and reunited for live shows in 2006.
