Germs were an American punk rock band formed in 1977, disbanded in 1980. Their fast spit-and-blood hardcore punk sound mixed with singer Darby Crash's (real name Jan Paul Beahm) literate and dark lyrics made them, to many, one of the distinctive bands in the early punk scene. They disbanded when Crash, after long bouts with drug addiction and self-destructive behavior, committed suicide at age 22 on December 7, 1980. The Germs' 1977 single, "Forming"/"Sexboy" (live), is generally regarded as the first punk record from Los Angeles, CA.
