Boris the Sprinkler is a punk band that formed in Green Bay, Wisconsin in 1992, known for their zaniness and abnormality. Their aesthetic seemed to borrow from Devo and they display a xerox sci-fi bizarro style reminiscent of Buckaroo Bonzai. They also are fringly associated with the queercore movement of the nineties. Their lead singer, Reverend Norb, who wrote a zine called Sick Teen, and also a former writer for Maximumrocknroll and current writer for Razorcake, frequently appears on stage in elaborate kitchy costumes, such as that of Wolverine. They have released albums on the Lookout!, Bulge, Mutant Pop, and Go Kart record labels. The band's name appears to be a parody or a tribute to The Who song "Boris the Spider".
