SPLAT! You've just smacked eyeballs-first into Ded Bugs caught in the web! This is the official homepage of the punk-pop band, Ded Bugs. Four dorks from DeSoto with weapons of music destruction!
Welcome to our nest!
2014 = 25 YEARS OF PESTILENCE!
Happy 25th Anniversary... TO US!
As we celebrate our 25th anniversary in 2014, our foray into live shows continues! What's next for Ded Bugs on the live front?
How about a show with punk rock icons, THE WEIRDOS. That's right. Not a typo. Yes, THE Weirdos. The LA band that helped pioneer punk rock's first wave in the late 70s and penned such punk classics as "We Got The Neutron Bomb" and "Helium Bar". The show has been confirmed for Sat Aug 29 @ Atomic Cowboy here in St. Louis. Click the "Shows" button for info. We will post more details as they are ironed out. Thanx to Rob Ruzicka and Chip from Atomic Cowboy for making this event possible!

As mentioned earlier this year, we'll be uploading our entire catalog - vinyl and cassettes included - to BandCamp throughout 2014. Our last two albums, "Planet Of Blood" and "stop and smell the stinking corpse lilies" (which had been out of print for over 5 years) are both now available through Bandcamp. All original art included. And we've added also added a bonus track for "Planet Of Blood". Just click the following link to check out both recently added titles:
