From the 1992-96 tv series of the same name. Pop/rock band of a bunch of pretty California high schoolers in this lightweight show from the same people who gave us Saved by the Bell. Original lineup: Matt Garrison (Brent Gore), Tiffani Smith (Kelly Packard), Tony Wicks (William James Jones), Jenny Garrison (Heidi Lenhart), and the band's manager, Sylvester "Sly" Winkle (Michael Cade). Tough guy Jake Sommers (Jay Anthony Frake) joined the band in the "Jake's Song" episode (09/11/93). Jenny was replaced by Hong Kong exchange student Samantha Woo (Jennie Kwan) in the "Wooing Woo" episode (09/25/93). Matt was replaced by Sly's cousin Mark Winkle (Aaron Jackson) in the "The Unforgiven" episode (09/10/94).

In the "Dirty Dog Days" episode (date?), the band played their songs on pirate radio under the name The Dirty Dogs. A soundtrack album for the show was released on MCA in 1992.
