Junkyard band began in 1980 as a group of kids playing in a lot with plastic buckets, soda cans and other found objects, emulating the sounds of some of their favorite go-go bands who performed in their Southeast, DC neighborhood Barry Farms also known as “the projects”. The band began to play talent shows and street performances throughout DC, taking audiences by storm – playing from the grounds of the Smithsonian and Washington Monument, to the streets of Georgetown.

“In 1985, Junkyard caught the attention of Def Jam Records and was signed that same year to a multi-year recording deal.

The band worked closely with producer Rick Rubin, recording and releasing the national hit “Sardines” and an underground favorite “The WORD”. After release of the songs, Junkyard began to tour in the United States and played major venues such as Capital Centre, Richmond Coliseum and the Apollo Theater. The tour included dates with a variety of groups such as Slayer, Fishbone and the Beastie Boys. Following that, in 1986 Junkyard appeared in the Def Jam produced movie “Tougher Than Leather” alongside Run-DMC.
