Spermbirds are a German punk band from Kaiserslautern. Formed in 1982 by members of melodic punk rock band Die Walterelf among American G.I. stationed in Germany, named Lee Hobson Hollis, they created a fast hardcore punk group that gained popularity inside as well as outside of Germany. Their most successful album was named Something To Prove mixing influences by many American hardcore punk bands with snotty and furious lyrics.
