There are at least two bands with this name 1) A Powerviolence band from the UK 2) Pissed Off is a french duo. It features Adrien A. playing drums and Mickael D. at guitars, both "singing" or... well, shouting. It is actually not completly music and could be better described as being just noise. Weird noise, funny noise, awful noise, some says... The thing with Pissed Off is that the duo isn't serious at all.

From periods ranging from progressive hardcore to more accessible punk rock, childhood friends Mikko (drums) and Jussi (guitar), bassist Lasse and vocalist Miikka have been Finland's best kept secret for too long.
