The Meatmen coined one of the great rock & roll slogans, immortalized as the title of the hardcore legend's 1983 album, We're the Meatmen...and You Suck!! The main Meatman is singer Tesco Vee, a towering, infamous figure who founded the Touch and Go zine, which famously grew into a seminal indie label over the course of the '80s. Before it really took off, however, Vee sold the brand, moved to Washington, D.C., and formed his band. The Meatmen antagonized and entertained with equal relish, lampooning rock and hardcore. Vee was known for taking the stage on a moped in a cloud of smoke. Vee reconvened a version of the band in 2008, and its shows are still a flurry of confetti and costumes.
