TNT is a rock band from Porto Alegre, Brazil. They first appeared on the compilation "Rock Grande do Sul" in 1986, recorded along with four other local bands, and recorded their self-titled debut album in 1987, achievieng national success and gaining a strong local follow. The band went through various formations, but the most known members were Márcio Petracco, Luis Henrique Tchê Gomes, Nei Van Sória and Flavio Basso - the last two of them disbanded early and went on to form another classic local rock band named the Cascavelletes.
The cult that was created around these two groups originated what is now called "Rock gaúcho", 'gaúcho' being the noun for inhabitants of Rio Grande do Sul, and is still a strong influence for today's groups like Faichecleres, Identidade or Sapatos Bicolores.
