iShotPunk is an internet music project of composers/songwriters Dani Zuniga and Simar Bal.
The name "iShotPunk" comes from Dani's early college days. Being a long time hometown (San Diego) fan of Blink 182, classmates at UC Santa Cruz would say "Punk is dead because bands like Blink 182 and Green Day". The spaces in the phrase "I Shot Punk" were removed as a nod to Dani and Simar's videogame industry roots where CamelCase is used in many naming conventions . The uppercase "I" was changed to a lower case "i" as mockery of the I,MY,YOU marketing trend at the time i.e. iSight, Myspace, You Tube.
Dani and Simar met in January of 1999 at UC Santa Cruz and began writing music together soon after that.
In 2001 Dani got accepted into the Electronic Music Program at UC Santa Cruz. In which in 2003 Dani recorded with a Pop Punk band he played guitar for called Sidewall.
In early 2003 Dani began working in the videogame industry as a Sound Designer/Composer Simar joined him by early 2004.
In 2006 Dani and Simar moved to San Francisco to be "In the middle of it all".
