A reference to its hometown of Orange County and the toxic herbicide used in the Vietnam War, Agent Orange is a trio noted as one of the first bands to fuse punk rock and surf music. Formed in 1979, the band has gone through many lineups, but has consistently remained active and stuck by its punk morals, refusing to sell out like many of its contemporaries. Though the band members claimed they didn't skate, Agent Orange was highly influential in the development of skate punk and its songs are often used in skateboard video games today. Because Agent Oranges appeals to such a broad variety of punk fans, the group has a devout audience around the world that continues to grow.
