The Meteors are a highly influential psychobilly band. Originally from the United Kingdom, they are often credited with giving the genre its distinctive sound. The Meteors consider themselves the first and only "pure" psychobilly band.

The Meteors were started in 1980 by P. Paul Fenech (guitar and vocals), Nigel Lewis (upright bass), and Mark Robertson (drums). Fenech and Lewis had played in rockabilly bands before, but left their former band, Raw Deal, in order to experiment with a new sound that mixed horror and science fiction lyrics with a punk rock-rockabilly crossover. This sound would later be called psychobilly.
