Mukilteo Fairies was a United States band from Olympia, Washington that existed from 1993 to 1994. Part of the “” movement, they were distinctive by virtue of their extreme style of hardcore punk that has often been described as . Members included Jason Reece, Jon “Quitty” Quittner, Joshua Plague and Rebecca Basye.

After the band broke up, Jason Reece moved to Texas to form …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. Rebecca Bayse moved to Columbus, Ohio and started The Emerald Down. Jon Quittner and Joshua Plague stayed in Olympia, creating a new queercore band Behead The Prophet, No Lord Shall Live. After that group broke up, Joshua’s next outfit was Lords of Lightspeed.

Mukilteo Fairies are fast approaching legendary status, highly regarded by and sought out by hardcore aficionados, Trail Of Dead devotees and queercore enthusiasts alike; they have become more popular since breaking up than when the band was together. The straight edge, queercore hardcore band Limp Wrist offers a homage to Joshua Plague, along with Gary Floyd of The Dicks and Randy Turner of Big Boys in their song “The Ode”, a tribute to their role models.
