Being that they're one of the precious few punk bands from Wyoming that has a Wikipedia page, I have no choice but to do this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teenage_Bottlerocket

Pegboy
Pegboy is a punk rock band from Chicago, IL. The group was formed in 1990 by Larry Damore (vocals and occasional guitar), John Haggerty (guitar), Steve Saylors (bass), and Joe Haggerty (drums) in 1990. The band's first release, a 12" EP named "Three Chord Monte" was released the same year and was the first release for Quarterstick Records, an offshoot of Touch And Go Records. The band's first LP, "Strong Reaction" was released the following year and for many years remained one of the most popular records in the Touch And Go/Quarterstick catalog. Saylors was forced to dropout afterwards when his boss forced him to choose between keeping his job or touring. Steve Albini played bass on 1993's "Fore" EP. Former Naked Raygun bassist Pierre Kezdy joined the group afterwards. This line-up released 2 LPs, 1994's "Earwig" and 1997's "Cha-Cha Damore", the latter of which is, to date, the last recorded material released by the band. Around the turn of the century, word circulated that the band had split but they still made occassional live appearances around Chicago throughout the 2000s, including a performance at Touch And Go's 25th Anniversary Party in 2006. In 2007, Pierre Kezdy rejoined a now reunited Naked Raygun and was replaced by "Skinny" Mike Thompson.

Nobodys
Mixing four-chord Ramones-inspired rock anthems with an unadulterated pornography fixation, the Nobodys have sprung forth from the fertile grounds of Colorado Springs to become the reigning Ron Jeremys of the punk rock world!

It all began with their 1996 debut album on Hopeless, "Short Songs for Short Attention Spans." Produced by Joe Queer of The Queers, the record, full of two- minute gems, had fans getting it up from coast to coast as the band brought their live show across the country and around the world, touring the US, Europe and Canada several times over. Of course, this only made fans wet for more, so the Nobodys came again with their 1997 tour de force, "Smell of Victory" (produced by Warren Fitzgerald of The Vandals).

Tours with The Queers, Chixdiggit and Guttermouth won over even more converts. By now, collectors were going crazy trying to snatch up all the Nobodys material they could, so the band made it easy by compiling their numerous 7", compilation and demo songs onto one CD, appropriately titled "Greatasstits." (The cover, a close up on the enormous chest of renowned porn star Taylor Wayne, is as unforgettable as the music.) Soon to follow was the inevitable Generation XXX, produced by Donnell Cameron (Bad Religion, Rocket from the Crypt, NOFX) with twenty-five tracks of, what some would call ...sloppy, loud, perverted, snotty, annoying and not to mention overbearing punk rock from Colorado springs... Yeah, that's about right. Tours with The Queers, Chixdiggit and Guttermouth won over even more converts.
