Spawned in Scottish town of Edinburgh in 1980, THE EXPLOITED were created as an answer to the ever-present “No Future” attitude of the time, as opposed of just being unemployed, those four fellas decided to kick ass and if they’d be without a proper job, at least they’d be doing it with some style! Gathering ex-squaddie Wattie Buchan (vocals), Big John Duncan (guitar), Dru Stix (drums) and Gary McCormack (bass), THE EXPLOITED have been a raw and rough outlet right from the start, not diluting their music for public consumption. THE EXPLOITED were punk rock.

Just a year within their young history, THE EXPLOITED released their debut attempt in 1981 'Punk's Not Dead' on the Secret label, which was more of a rallying battle cry than just a record.

1982 saw the release of THE EXPLOITED’s first genuine classic album 'Troops Of Tomorrow' (number 17 in the charts). Throughout the years THE EXPLOITED remained most consequently true to their roots, never selling out, never splitting up - despite countless line-up changes - and never bowing down. Who else would have the nerve to drown a Tory politician in their video (for the title track of their '96 masterpiece 'Beat The Bastards') or repeatedly refer to Maggie Thatcher as a "fucking cunt!" ('Maggie').
