    (1976- )
    Born in London, United Kingdom
    Original Line-Up:
    Dave Vanian (birth name was David Letts; October 12, 1956- ), lead vocals
    Brian James (February 18, 1955- ), lead guitar
    Captain Sensible (birth name was Raymond Burns; April 24, 1954- ), guitar, bass guitar and vocals
    Rat Scabies (birth name was Christopher Millar; July 30, 1957- ), drums
    Recorded the albums 'Damned Damned Damned' (1977), 'Music for Pleasure' (1977), 'Machine Gun Etiquette' (1979), 'The Black Album' (1980), 'Strawberries' (1982), 'Phantasmagoria' (1985), 'Anything' (1986), 'Final Damnation' (1988), 'Not of This Earth' (1995) and 'Grave Disorder' (2001)
    They invited Sid Vicious to audition as lead singer, but he never showed up.
    They disbanded and reunited numerous times with Vanian the only constant.
    During their first reunion, they performed at several concerts as the Dimmed and the Doomed due to questions about who owned the rights to the band name.
    The back cover of their debut album accidentally featured a picture of a different band, Eddie and the Hot Rods.
    Like Siouxsie and the Banshees, they are punks who became goths.
    They beat out the Sex Pistols to become the first British punk group to release an album and to play in the US.
    They appeared on an episode of The Young Ones.
    Dexter Holland of the Offspring is a fan and signed them to the Nitro Records label (2000).
