The roots of the DGAF movement, DGAF: (an acronym for “Don’t Give a F**k”), started back in the ’90s with the infamous Chucky Chuck and Gillies. During high school Chuckys friends gave him the moniker, “Chucky Chuck Don’t give A F**k”, after overdosing on LSD. From there, Chucky and longtime friend Gillies, a legend in the South Bay area punk scene, adopted the term to describe their own reckless lifestyles. With a thirst for motocross, surfing, skateboarding and insane behavior, the pair of misfits lived each day with no fear and only a go big or stay home attitude. When creating a musical soundtrack for the chaos they produce, Chucky and Gillies recruited none other than Brad Daddy X, Saint Dog (original frontman of Kottonmouth Kings) and his brother Big Hoss to join in the audio disruption.
DGAF was first introduced on a worldwide level through counterculture icons the Kottonmouth Kings. During the late ninties, Gillies was roommates with the Kings own DJ Bobby B and D-Loc in Redondo Beach, CA. They were quickly adopted into the DGAFamily. A bond that lasts to this day.
The group immediately went to work in their garage to create DIY t-shirts sporting the groups moniker with stencils and spray-paint to accompany their DGAF tattoos. Within months of rocking sold out shows, the DGAF movement had gone from the tattoos on their bodies to a worldwide cultivation of hardcore punks, misfits, stoners, and adrenaline junkies. The groups sound has been described as the sonic equivalent of the Sex Pistols punk attitude crashing head on with the raw hip hop sound of N.W.A.
DGAF has a toxic musical brew that is an unapologetic middle finger to everyone and everything that stands in their path. No matter what side of the line you stand on, it’s impossible to ignore their in-your-face message. The DGAF crew is ready to crack skulls and celebrate the only way they how; by packaging the insanity of their day to day lives into one harsh audible blunt.
