Toilet Boys rocked New York City in the mid-nineties through the turn of the century, leaving anthems and scars across the city and globe. The original Toilet Boys lineup featured Miss Guy, Sean Pierce, Electric Eddie, Rocket, and Adam Vomit. Each show brought energy, props and newly converted fans leaving with confusion and sexual questions regarding Miss Guy. During their punk-inspired reign the band toured with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dee Dee Ramone and Deborah Harry (Blondie).

The band was formed in 1995 by Miss Guy, a DJ at Don Hill’s rock club in New York City, to play a gig with Deborah Harry.
