Huntington Beach has been a hotbed of music for decades, especially for the California punk sound that eventually fought its way into the mainstream. One of the original pop punk legends, Guttermouth, sprung from this scene. Formed in 1988, the band has toured constantly — pleasing both hardcore old school fans and new fans that weren’t even born when the band first started punking around.
Guttermouth stays true to the punk scene, even after 26 long years with power chords, hilarious lyrics, shock value, and high energy pop punk. Guttermouth, so beloved by SoCal locals, was the first band to release an album on Dexter Holland’s indie label Nitro Records. Singer Mark Adkins does his best to make the audience blush, or at least laugh nervously, as he hurls insults, confronts security, and combats the boring while he marches across the stage, yelling and singing.
Guttermouth has years of material to draw from, but expect fast-paced, catchy pop punk no matter what — the band never strayed too far from their punk roots (thankfully), unlike other old school bands who experimented with everything from more serious hard rock to reggae and failed. Guttermouth simply do not care what you think. They want you to mosh. They want you to have fun. But they aren’t changing for anyone. Always outrageous, always punk, and always a good time to be had at a Guttermouth show.
