Fear is an American punk rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1977. The band is credited for helping to shape the sound and style of hardcore punk. The group came to national attention after an infamous 1981 performance on Saturday Night Live. Frontman Lee Ving has been the band's only constant member. Since its formation, the band has gone through various lineup changes, and at one point, featured Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers on bass. Fear has influenced a number of bands who have paid tribute to the band by covering its songs. Fear's music has also been featured in several video game soundtracks.
