The Queers

Sometimes they are mistaken for a queercore band like labelmates Pansy Division, but one listen to the Queers' adolescent-boy-who-never-grew-up lyrics ("she got no tit," "I'm really goo-goo over you/I'm mentally retarded too," "she's my Burger King Queen," etc.) will dispel that misconception. While some of their songs border on sexism and homophobia, they are simply too goofy and good-natured to mean any harm with their left-back-four-grades, dumb-a** shtick. Formed in 1982, this New Hampshire group ambled their way through the 1980s, recording a few singles and compilation tracks along the way, most of which were collected on Lookout's A Day Late and a Dollar Short. Before recording their first full-length studio album, Grow Up, the group finally settled on a permanent lineup consisting of singer/guitarist Joe King/Queer, drummer Hugh O'Neill, and bassist B-Face. Grow Up was released on a small English label called Shakin' Street, which promptly went belly up after only 1,000 copies were pressed. Screeching Weasel frontman Ben Weasel got Lookout label owner Larry Livermore to sign the Queers, and in 1993 Lookout released the Ben Weasel-produced Love Songs for the Retarded. Love Songs was followed by a yearly salvo of bubblegum punk, from 1994's Beat Off to 1996's magnum opus Don't Back Down, the best late-'70s-era Ramones album the Ramones never recorded. After a long bout with brain cancer, O'Neill died on January 21, 1999; Later Days and Better Lays, issued that spring, assembled unreleased Queers material recorded during his tenure with the band. B-Face next left the band, and after signing with Hopeless Records, the Queers went through various lineups as King remained the only constant. 2000's Beyond the Valley... marked the first studio album since O'Neill's death and, somewhat fittingly, was a relatively darker album than the rest of the band's prior catalog. A string of releases followed in the early 2000s, including the Today EP, Live in West Hollywood, and Pleasant Screams. A split with Manges appeared in 2003, and the classics collection Summer Hits, Vol. 1 was issued the next fall. Recorded live during a two-day stint at Bernie's Distillery in Columbus, OH, the Queers next released the aptly titled album Weekend at Bernie's in May 2006. The record featured King joined by Teen Idols' Philip Hill on bass and Dave Tervino on drums. That same year, Asian Man Records began reissuing several of the band's classic albums (remixed and remastered), starting with 1993's Love Songs for the Retarded. In February 2007, and also via Asian Man, the Queers released Munki Brain, their first album of new material since 2002, while the band commemorated their 25th year of immaturity with the DVD The Queers Are Here, which was chock-full of live footage, interviews, and music videos. The reissues continued into 2007. ~ Kembrew McLeod, Rovi

Wow, Pandora needs to get their s**t together. They released a bunch of other Studio Albums in the nineties, like Punk Rock Confidential and Beat Off. As a NH resident I got to see the Queers multiple times at the now defunct Elvis Room. Those were good times.
One of my high school friends played bass for The Queers on a European tour in the early 00's and didn't get paid. He was on a live album. His name is Isaac Lane.
saw them a few months ago. joe stopped the show to threaten to smash his guitar into the face of a guy spitting in the pit. awesome.
i enjoy listening to the queers than a queer complain about the noise that the queers are slamming out.
Saw them a few times in the 90's at The Concert Cafe in Green bay(cheese central) always a good show.
These guys are hilarious.
joe queer once spit on me at a show, i had mixed emotions about this moment but when they played fuk the world i forgot all about it and truly felt i got my moneys worth
these people rok (bty:start posting thing that have to do wit somting ok)
Nobody! Or maybe if they were some sort of horrible s**t deamon who only listens to Nickleback. But no sane human would vote cheese off, unless they ate him or her(we should not assume that cheese is male, but then again cheese might be asexual).
if cheese was ever on survivor it would win the million! what kind of idiot would vote cheese off the island?
hey, I saw them in Austin @ Red 7 Sunday before last

Hey, that's awesome! Thanks for letting us know you're going to have fun while we're stuck at home posting comments on Pandora to make our pathetic lives go by slightly faster.
i'm gonna see them in concert in a week!
Cheese is f**king amazing! Who in their right mind would refuse cheese? Not I! Same thing with the Queers.
i like cheese
columbus loves the queers. in the butt. pretty much every weekend. since they play here so much
The Queers are f**king amazing, I saw them live and they are one of the most engaging and crazily fun bands to see live. Also they are better than the Ramones because of the fact that the Ramones got all nasty and conservative especially towards the end of their career. The Queers are a great band because of their very fun lyrics and their very subtle way of critizing soceity and it's veiw of the trasgendered and other stuff.
who doesnt like cheese?!?
bromide01
I like cheese.
i like them
I now own love songs for the retarded, I like it but the vocals on some songs are pretty queer.
Makes you long for the Ramones, a much better band!
The Queers ROCK!!!!
