The Invalids (Tony on bass guitar, Sean on drums and Scott on guitar and vocals) wanted to be Green Day and we can enjoy their failure. While failing imitators can achieve serendipitous innovation, East Bay band, the Invalids derivitiveness came out like a cross between the cow-punk of fellow East Bay-ers, Sewer Trout and the gruff pop-punk of Chicago's Screeching Weasel. This 1995 Lookout Records single, "Punker Than Me", is jam-packed with sing-along choruses, off-kilter lyrics, stripped-down chord progressions and the whole damn record clocks in at 6:42!

Insubordination Records has put out an Invalids comp, though it does not contain any of the songs from this single.
