The Meteors - Little Red Riding Hood

The Meteors ARE the founding fathers of PsychoBilly. They fromed in 1980 and are originally from the United Kingdom, they are credited with giving psychobilly its distinctive sound and style. Though the origins of psychobilly are debated, The Meteors are the first band to self-identify as psychobilly, and are often credited with the distinction of being the only "pure" psychobilly band among fans of the genre.

The Creepshow - Zombies Ate Her Brain

The Creepshow is a HorrorBilly band from Ontario Canada. HorrorBilly is a subgenre of PsychoBilly that directly uses horror movie refrences in their lyrics and style. The band formed in 2005 and has two amazing albums that certify them as PsychoBilly queens and kings. The lead singer Hellcat departed from the band in 2008 for maternal reasons and her sister SarahSin stepped up to take her place.

Reverend Horton Heat - Galaxie 500

The Reverend began his sermons in 1985 and has been captivating us ever since. His tunes can be found in various video games like Guitar Hero 2 which features the song "PsychoBilly Freakout" and movies like Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls features the song "Watusi Rodeo". See you love the Reverend even if you did'nt know it.

Stray Cats - Rock This Town

Taking it back to the 80's with this Klassic. The Stray Cats were formed in 1980 and are origionally from "The Big Apple" this band had saved the Rockabilly scene from vanishing altogether. By 1982 the fashion sense and style of RockaBilly began to spread. Brian Setzer is a genius by all standards.
