The Damned are an English rock band formed in London, England in 1976 by Dave Vanian, Brian James, Captain Sensible, and Rat Scabies.
They were the first punk rock band from the United Kingdom to release a single, release an album, and tour the United States.
The band is well known for being one of the first gothic rock bands and a major influence on the goth subculture with lead singer Dave Vanian's vampire themed costume and dark lyrics being major influences.
The Damned influenced future hardcore punk bands with their fast-paced, energetic playing style and attitude. Along with the Sex Pistols and the Clash, they helped to spearhead the punk movement in the United Kingdom. They are sometimes referred to as British punk's "band of firsts," having made accomplishments mentioned previously, as well as other "firsts" like the first punk band to break up and come back.
