BandRockChildren's Music

If you don't let us play, you'll be sorry!


Crankbox is a coed rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio, dedicated to live performance and seemingly disinterested in publicity, record deals, or "making it." What else would you expect from a group that takes naked promo shots or slips profanity into an otherwise perfect radio tune simply to avoid mainstream acceptance?

Having experienced College market success with their 2004 CD Release, Superbitch, Crankbox still proudly lists ALL shows on their website right alongside their PollStar listings, including backyard barbeques and Bat Mitzvahs.

Unique in their performance style with backup singers, stage antics that would make Gene Simmons blush, and a sound that lies somewhere between Wilco and Green Day, Crankbox finds a groove that people can relate to by dancing, singing along, having sex, or drinking (the four food groups!)
