The Queers are a punk rock band consisting of lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Joe King, and numerous musicians who have come and gone over the years. Since the early 1980’s the band who’ve been delivering fast, loud, snotty music, playing the role of beer-sodden teenagers even as they’ve grown into middle age. While some punk rock bands try to use their music to convey a social or political message, King said The Queers exist simply to play punk rock for fun. In 2021, The Queers brought not one but two new albums : a typically snotty set of originals, «The Queers Save the World », and their first full LP of covers, « Reverberation ».
