A German punk band whose influences range from Oi!, ska, and rockabilly to no-frills hard rock and revved-up pop, the Broilers hail from Düsseldorf and began playing together in 1992. The group was founded by singer and guitarist Sammy Amara and drummer Andreas "Andi" Brügge, who were only 12 years old at the time. Inspired by the Clash, the Sex Pistols, and German funny-punk band Die Toten Hosen, the two chose the name the Broilers because it had "oi" in it, and they slowly expanded into a full band with the addition of guitarist Pascal Goßen in 1994 and bassist Ines Maybaum in 1995. ~ Mark Deming
