Biography

Garotos Podres (“Rotten Boys”) is a Brazilian punk rock band formed in 1982 in the city of Mauá in the metropolitan region of São Paulo called “ABC”.

Most of the lyrics implies in political issues or anarchic thematics, satirizing american icons, such as Batman and Donald Duck, while criticizing the Media and social institutions, such as the School.

In 1985, while Brazil was still under military dictatorship, they appeared on the Ataque Sonoro compilation along with Ratos de Porão, Cólera, Lobotomia and others of the Brazilian hardcore/punk scene. They released the first album of the band, Mais Podres do que Nunca (“More Rotten Than Ever”), on the now defunct Rocker label and then the band really started, selling about 50,000 copies and becoming popular until today.

Due to censorship at the time, the song Johnny was censured, while others such as Papai-Noel Filho da Puta (Santa Claus Son Of A Bitch) and Maldita Polícia (Damned Police) were relaunched as Papai-Noel Velho Batuta (Santa Claus Cool Old Man) and Maldita Preguiça (Damned Laziness) respectively. The new song’s name is a cacophony.

Mao, vocalist of the band, is also a history teacher.
