Ugly Kid Joe is an American hard rock band from Isla Vista, California, consisting of original members Whitfield Crane on vocals and Klaus Eichstadt on guitar, alongside bass player Cordell Crockett, Dave Fortman on guitar, drummer Shannon Larkin, guitarist Sonny Mayo, and Zac Morris on drums.
Formed in 1987, they signed to Mercury and released their debut album 'America's Least Wanted' in 1992, which hit #27 in the Billboard Hot 200 and #11 on the UK Albums Chart. They went on to release 'Menace to Sobriety' in 1995 and 'Motel California' in 1996 before splitting in 1997. In 2010 they reformed, releasing ‘Uglier Than They Used Ta Be’ in 2015. In 2017, we saw the release of their latest material, a new album called 'Stairway To Hell'.
