violators logo
violators rock itA high-energy band from Denver, The Violators were popular at many night-spots as an opening act and as a main attraction in the Boulder/Denver area. They began performing in late '78 and were a force in the Denver punk scene into the early 80's. Led by the guitar pyrotechnics of Shawn McNary and the vocal gymnastics of singer Tom Pop, the band along with Boulder's Defex was the the hardest and angriest sounding punk bands of the era.

Popular songs included a cover of the Stooges "Search and Destroy" and the original "Call Me Animal". Through several personnel changes, the backbone of The Violators remained the same as a few other members changed.
