Mean Jeans


Portland, OR

If you peruse Mean Jeans’ Facebook page—and why wouldn’t you, all good punks use social media these days—you may notice the band is identified as both “cool punk” and “dumb punk.” These aren’t self-descriptions, however; they came from two separate mainstream publications, each trying to figure out just where this Portland, Oregon, power trio fits in.

“We don’t play an ultra-specific genre of music,” vocalist/guitarist Billy Jeans says. “We’re proud of not fitting into garage rock, power pop or pop-punk—though we love that music—so appropriating those idiotic faux-genre titles made sense to us.”
