Biography

The Dirty Panties officially formed in 2001. Like most great ideas, the concept of The Dirty Panties was born at a New York City bar, in a drunken stupor, and had a history even before it had instruments. After moving to Vegas, creating a solid local following and undergoing a few personnel changes, The Dirty Panties solidified their line-up with founding member, Barbara Lenox, on guitar; lead singer, Melanie Ash; Michelle “Lil’ Moe” Meyer on bass; and Kayley “Animal” Malcolm on drums. Through extensive touring throughout the Southwest, the Dirty Panties have earned the reputation as a “must see act” and become iconic in Las Vegas and beyond.

Influenced by the DIY past of NYC punk and the raw style of the garage rock renaissance, The Dirty Panties have created their own unique sound. They write and perform powerful, infectious songs that reflect the band’s personality. From getting drunk, feminism and rejection, to their take on what it means to be a girl in the punk scene in the anthem “Pretty In Pink.” “The Panties” as their fans call them, are a unique, hard working punk rock band that know their way around a dive bar, a catchy song and a concert stage. To see what it’s “all about” you need to see them live, but you take these girls lightly at your own risk.

Lyrics

Confighted

Written By: The Dirty Panties

Last night at the drive-through
Things were going great between me and you
And then you stopped the car, and you got out
You saw someone you once knew
It was this bitch you use to screw

So, I played the cool game
I shook her hand, told her my name
The entire time I was thinking
OH WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU JUST DO?

I was over jealousy
Then you had to go and be jealous over me
And I confided, then confighted
Postapocalyptically, oh baby, I know that you were meant for me

So, I played the cool game
I shook her hand, told her my name
The entire time I was thinking
OH WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU JUST
So, I played the cool game
I shook her hand, told her my name
The entire time I was thinking
OH WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU JUST DO?

WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU JUST DO!!!

My girls and I are playing a party.
Hey, Do you wanna go?
We’re half way on our way to wasted.
This is going to be a kick ass show.
The music’s blaring.
The scene is playing like a punk rock girls wet dream.
My pulse is racing and it feels so good.
Do you know what I mean?
Pregame out in the parking lot.
Still have a band or two to go.
Getting my head set ready to blow minds away.
One more swig and I’ll be good to go!
Having the best time of my whole damn life.
It feels this way every single time.
Never a doubt, No worry while we’re here.
Nights like this always treat me fine.
My girls and I are playing a party,
Hey do you want to go?

Get Off Your Ass

Written By: The Dirty Panties

Life can be so damn hard
Don't know what I have to bitch about
But today, well it fucking sucks
I just want to scream and shout

Well, you say there are six words to freedom
and I don't really care

Cause I had something for a second and
now it's flown away
I just want to be one of them
That gets richer everyday

The banks are going under
The stocks are down
And we can point fingers all day
The banks are going under
The stocks are down
I don't wanna play the blame game
