After a lot of touring around Europe they toured together with Beatallica in October 2005 and in Spring 2006.[1] Unlike Beatallica they performed the Beatles songs "as they are", singing the same lyrics and playing cover versions of the originals, just a "little" faster and with a punk feeling.

They were quite successful in Europe, as well as in Japan, where their best of CD The Punkles 1998-2003 (2003), and the following album, Pistol (2004), both entered the Top 50.[2] Their final album For Sale! was released in April 2006. They have not appeared in public since.
