The Germs are an "Art Punk" band from Los Angeles that were popular from 1977-1980. The Line-up during most of this time was Darby Crash on vocals, Pat Smear on guitar, Lorna Doom on the bass and Don Bolles on the drums. Darby Crash passed away in 1980 but the band was rejuvenated with Shane West, who played Darby in their movie "What We Do Is Secret", as their lead vocalist. This line-up has been playing since 2005.
