An 80s hardcore-noise-punk band, notorious for drinking and vandalizing the East Bay area more than actually playing. At one time, San Francisco's Clipper Street was constantly being spraypainted "Flipper Street", presumably by band members. Dead fish logos are still visible in some parts of Frisco (Other notable places to find their fish logo include the Berlin Wall, the Eiffel Tower, the Great Wall of China, and the bathroom at the Vatican in Rome.).
Their most notable album, "Generic Flipper", is known to be one of Nirvana
vocalist Kurt Cobain's favorite albums.
"COME ON! THIS IS ROCK N ROLL! THIS IS THE PUNK WOODSTOCK! THIS IS THE INFATUATION OF THE NATION! THIS IS...the end of the show." - Bruce Loose, Flipper vocalist, "lyrics" from the song "Ever"
