There are two groups that go by the name Honeymoon Killers: (1) a Belgian new wave/post-punk band, and (2) an American garage punk band from New York.
(1) The Honeymoon Killers are an eclectic rock group from Belgium who released an album in 1981 said to be classic and sometimes epochal, Les Tueurs de la Lune de Miel (the band name in French). This group was tightly connected with the very important Belgian music act, Aksak Maboul.

(2) The Honeymoon Killers is also the name of a New York four-piece formed in the early 1980s. Firmly rooted in the aesthetics of the splatter drive-in, where badness is just the starting point. The fake voodoo music, recorded in “four track horror fidelity,” is abrasive and primitive — like The Cramps with less-commercial instincts and an even sicker sense of humor. Led by guitarist Jerry Teel and bassist Lisa Wells, the Killers went through a hefty number of personnel shifts (including John Spencer and Christina Martinez of Pussy Galore and Boss Hog).
