History

Gang Green hailed from Boston and played crossover with a penchant for fun and games. The band was formed in 1982 with only Doherty surviving the formative years. The band was the first band with a record on the later-influential Taang! label and seemed destined for bigger things.
A parade of musicians coming and going, as well as a watered down delivery finally did them in, but not before they delivered much and spoofed more. 1989's I81b4u clearly poked fun at Van Halen and Older...Budweiser was a deliberate and calculated attempt at getting sponsorship from that American corporation.
Brooks replaced Pappe through his acquaintance Michael Lucantonio, who himself had replaced Ericson in 1989. While the band wanted to release a new album, due to the label's insistence Gang Green instead issued a compilation called King Of Bands in 1991. This sampler featured two new songs. The new line-up also recorded a cover of Rolling Stones' song Satisfaction for a Boston compilation which was never released.
Gang Green toured with, among others, Social Distortion and Wrathchild America.
A reformed band released another album called Another Case Of Brewtality in 1997.
