DWARVES is an american punk band formed in Chicago, Illinois, as "The Suburban Nightmare", in the mid-1980s. But since 1990 they are currently based in San Francisco, California. Started as a garage band, their career subsequently saw them move in a hardcore direction before settling into an eclectic punk rock sound emphasizing intentionally shocking lyrics about sex, satanism, beers, etc. but they never sing seriously and there is a lot of jokes and great sense of humor as well as sarcasm. They have been described as "one of the last true bastions of punk rock ideology in the contemporary musical age", because especially in the 90s decade the majority of hardcore bands were straight edge, positive punk or similar ways of life, in opposite to the pessimist, non-futurist and often self-destructive typical in punk and oi! music during the 80s decade. So they are known for their simple, short, direct, yet nuanced punk repertoire, and controversial lyrics. Since the garage rock sound of their early days, they developed a more direct hardcore punk sound, often identified as "scum punk" due to the intentional perversity of the lyrics. Around the turn of millennium, the Dwarves developed more of a manic melodic pop punk influence. Bits of hardcore, garage, surf rock, pop and rock & roll all factor into the band's current punk sound. Their shows have been notable for some aggressive fights on stage (with the audience and even a cop), and because He Who Cannot Be Named performs either in nothing but a jockstrap or totally nude, apart from his trademark wrestling satanic mask.

Blood Guts & Pussy is a 1990 album by the Dwarves. It was their first album for Sub Pop, and the album's sleeve was the subject of controversy, receiving protests from feminists.
