Germicide (album)

Germicide, also known as Germicide: Live at the Whisky, 1977,[1] is a live album by the punk rock band the Germs. Performing live at the Whisky a Go Go in 1977, Darby Crash and the Germs were at the beginning of their career. At this time, Crash performed using the name Bobby Pyn. Darby and the audience feud constantly throughout the show. Disc jockey Rodney Bingenheimer appears at the beginning as master of ceremonies, and "Belinda" briefly takes the mic to introduce the band, who she describes as "sluts".
