The Vandals are an American rock band established in 1980 in Huntington Beach, California.Forming as part of the second wave of American punk rock, the band has released ten full-length studio albums and two live albums and have toured the world extensively, including performances on the Vans Warped Tour.
Of the early members only Escalante has remained through all subsequent incarnations of the band.
Clear spiritual forefathers of bands like the Offspring, blink-182, and Less Than Jake, the Vandals took their cues from early punk comedians like the Dickies and the Descendents, ratcheting up the wiseass factor and delighting in dumb, lowbrow jokes.
Sometimes satirical and mostly silly, the Vandals also remained staunchly independent for their entire career, releasing records on a variety of punk indies that afforded them financial and creative control. Their inaugural lineup was completed by vocalist Stevo, bassist Steve Pfauter, and drummer Joe Escalante.
