Agent Orange is a punk rock band that was formed in 1979. Musically, they incorporate a lot of surf rock into their music. The band lineup basically rotates around its one sustainable member, singer/guitarist Mike Palm. I have seen this band several times and even had the chance to hang out with on a couple of occasions. They are still active although they really don't release much music all that often. They mostly just play live.
