The Dicks are an American punk rock band from Austin, Texas, originally formed in 1980. They initially disbanded in 1986 before reforming in 2004. The Dicks are considered influential in introducing the sound of hardcore punk and incorporating blues rock influences into their sound. The band went through two distinct incarnations, changing its lineup (''sans'' singer Gary Floyd) when they moved from Austin to San Francisco in 1983, and later reviving a version of its original lineup in 2004. As a politically radical band with left-wing and Marxist lyrics during the Reagan era, they did not shy from controversy. Floyd was one of a handful of openly gay musicians in the 1980s hardcore scene.
