Poison Idea is an American punk rock band formed in Portland, Oregon in 1980. The band was motivated by the Germs and Black Flag, and took their musical cues from bands such as Discharge and SOA. Pushing the speed limits of contemporary punk rock, they played raw and angry hardcore the likes of which had rarely been heard before (or since).
The band originally dissolved in 1993, but has been playing intermittently since 1998.
