Dayglo Abortions

The Dayglo Abortions are a rock band from Victoria, British Columbia, whose style combines elements of punk, heavy metal and alternative rock. Their lyrics are informed by a complete disregard for societal norms. They claim to have formed in the 1970s; their first album release was in 1981.

In 1988, a Nepean, Ontario[?] police officer instigated a criminal investigation of the Dayglos after his daughter brought home one of their albums. This resulted in the criminal prosecution of Fringe Product[?], their label at the time, for distribution and posession with intent to distribute of obscene material—the first such prosecution since the offense entered the criminal code in 1959. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty. The Dayglos had musical revenge in the title song of their next album, "Two Dogs Fucking", in which the priggishness of Nepean's public officials leads directly to the extinction of the human race.
