$wingin' Utter$
Swingin' Utters (often typeset as $wingin' Utter$, and originally called Johnny Peebucks and the Swingin' Utters) is a Californian punk rock band that formed in the late 1980s. After a seven-year hiatus, the band reformed in 2010 and released a new album in 2011.
Having begun in Santa Cruz, California, the band moved to San Francisco where they are now based. The early lineup comprised singer Johnny "Peebucks" Bonnel, guitarist/accordionist Darius Koski, bassist Kevin Wickersham, and drummer Greg McEntee.
The band's 1995 album The Streets of San Francisco won them 'Best Debut Album' at the Bay Area Music Awards, and they were included on the first Vans Warped Tour.

They have been signed to Fat Wreck Chords since 1996, releasing A Juvenile Product of the Working Class that year and releasing five further albums on the label since.

While Johnny Bonnel is the lead singer of the group, lead guitarist Darius Koski provides lead vocals on many of the band's tracks. Spike Slawson, Max Huber and Jack Dalrymple have also provided lead vocals on occasion.

The band toured the US with The Damned and Dropkick Murphys in the early 2000s. They also toured Europe with Rancid.

The band's track "The Lonely" was included in the Association for Independent Music (AFIM) Indie Award winning soundtrack of the 2001 film That Darn Punk.

In 2010 a tribute album for the band titled Untitled 21: A Juvenile Tribute to the Swingin' Utters was released.

After an seven-year hiatus, the band returned in 2010 with the Brand New Lungs EP, and followed it with the album Here, Under Protest in 2011.

The band recently finished their newest full length which is set to release in early 2013. Longtime bassist Spike Slawson has left the band and is replaced by Miles Peck.

In April 2013, the band toured Australia with Dropkick Murphys and Frank Turner.
