They formed in 1988 in Southern California after taking their name from an evil character in a Stephen King movie. Pennywise were from that last breed of true punk rock before Good Charlotte misrepresented the term.
Guitarist Fletcher Dragge is a founding member of Pennywise. Bass player Randy Bradbury is a 20+ year veteran of the band.
Australia has been one of the strongest markets for the band with six Top 40 albums now to their name.
