Me First and the Gimme Gimmes formed in 1995 in an effort to breath some punk rock life back into classic radio hits made famous by rock pioneers like Barry Manilow and Neil Diamond. Getting together with friends and playing thoughtless music was the motivation for the Gimme Gimmes. The Gimmes have broken down the barrier between the golden moldies and punk; finally a band that can be enjoyed kids and parents alike!

Me First and the Gimme Gimmes are the consummate punk rock supergroup. If underground music had an all–star game, these guys would lead the league in voting every season. Beginning with vocal duties, we have Spike. Spike got his break in the Fat Wreck Chords warehouse, where he was notorious for his violent outbursts and singing along to Prince records. His sweet voice and charisma could not be overlooked‚??the rest is history. Spike also plays bass in the famed San Francisco streetpunk band the Swingin‚?? Utters. On the tubs‚??that means the drums‚??we have Dave, formerly of Santa Barbara greats, Rich Kids on L.S.D., and the current drummer for skate–punk torchbearers, Lagwagon. On guitar we have Jackson. Yeah, yeah, Jackson‚??s in the Foo Fighters. On bass there‚??s Fat Mike, and if ever there was a punk tycoon, it would have to be he. As frontman of NOFX and president of Fat Wreck Chords, this man is a veritable crimelord. He‚??s not Sicilian, he‚??s Jewish. And finally, we have Joey on guitar. As the singer/songwriter genius behind Lagwagon, this Santa Barbaran is a living legend and leader of the punk rock new school.
