HistoryEdit

The band formed in the summer of 1991 in Skinnskatteberg. The group initially consisted of Mikael Danielsson (guitar), Jimmie Olsson (vocals, drums) and Henrik Sunvisson (bass guitar). The name was inspired by a tongue-in-cheek version of The Stooges' song "No Fun" as covered by the Sex Pistols, and the name of the band Sick of It All. The group released their albums on the Swedish label Burning Heart Records outside the United States. Within the U.S., No Fun at All's albums were released by Theologian Records and later by Epitaph Records.

In 1993, Jimmie Olsson left the band to concentrate on his other band Sober. He has contributed on all subsequent albums (except Out of Bounds) providing backup vocals. No Fun at All then recruited three new members: Ingemar Jansson (vocals), Krister Johansson (guitar) and Kjell Ramstedt (drums). In 1999, Sunvisson quit, Danielsson switched from guitar to bass guitar and Stefan Neuman, from Tribulation, took up the vacant guitar slot. On January 11, 2001, No Fun at All broke up, and played their farewell show later in month.[1]

Since 2004, the band has reunited for several reunion shows. At the Groezrock Festival in 2008, No Fun at All announced they would be releasing a new record in the fall through their own label Beat 'Em Down Records. On April 19, 2012 the Millencolin Festival announced that No Fun At All canceled their show at the festival due to their disbandment [1]. As of May 2013, however, the band is active again and will be touring Australia in November of that year with Boysetsfire, Off with Their Heads and Jughead's Revenge.[2][3]
