Hometown: Seattle, WA (USA)


The Gits were a Seattle–based four–piece punk band that formed in 1986, releasing their debut album Frenching The Bully in 1992. By the summer of 1993 the band began recording their follow up, titled Enter: The Conquering Chicken. Popular in the Pacific Northwest and poised to break nationally, the band's career was tragically ended with the rape and murder of frontwoman Mia Zapata in July of 1993. The murder went unresolved for years until the 2002 arrest and 2004 conviction of her killer.
