About The Dead Milkmen

Philadelphia punk satirists the Dead Milkmen skewer popular culture, indie trend followers, and the intellectually challenged, while frequently indulging their taste for tastelessness. Though their sense of humor has always provoked mixed reactions from critics, who have alternately praised and dismissed the Milkmen as geeky, juvenile wisecrackers, the band earned a devoted cult following, a few novelty hits on college radio, and even an MTV hit with "Punk Rock Girl" (from 1988's Beelzebubba). After incorporating more serious material on albums like 1992's Soul Rotation, the Milkmen disbanded in 1995, while their influence could be heard on alternative radio throughout the decade. They reunited following the death of their former bass player, and provided sardonic commentary on 21st century life with subsequent full-lengths like The King in Yellow (2011) and Quaker City Quiet Pills (2023).
