SQUIRTGUN is on one side a pop-punk band in the tradition of GREEN DAY or SCREECHING WEASEL, and, in fact, two members of SQUIRTGUN are 8-year veterans of SCREECHING WEASEL. However, SQUIRTGUN also infuses reggae and ska influences into their sound, in a manner similar to OPERATION IVY – and, as it so happens, two members of SQUIRTGUN spent 3 years as part of a trio called COMMON RIDER featuring OPERATION IVY lead singer Jesse Michaels. In fact, members of SQUIRTGUN have served in several well-recognized bands in the world of punk rock, including ALKALINE TRIO, RISE AGAINST, the SMOKING POPES, the QUEERS, SCREECHING WEASEL, COMMON RIDER, the RIVERDALES, and others.
SQUIRTGUN songs range from melodic songs about love and relationships to raging socio-political anthems opposing racism, homophobia, and tyranny.
