DumDum Boys is a Norwegian rock band from Trondheim.[1]


DumDum Boys started up in the late 1970s as a punk band under the name Wannskrækk and released a few singles under that name before they reinvented themselves with a new name and a somewhat new sound in 1985. Inspired by Lasse Myrvold and The Aller Værste!, they produced their own music with Norwegian lyrics.

The new name, "DumDum Boys", was taken from a song on the album The Idiot by Iggy Pop.
