7 Seconds is a hardcore punk band from Reno, Nevada.[1] The band formed in 1979 as a hardcore thrash band.[2]

The original members of the band were vocalist Kevin Seconds, bassist Steve Youth, drummer Troy Mowat and guitarist Bobby Adams. Seconds and Youth did most of the song-writing.[2]

Between 1982 and 1987, the band released four EPs and three LPs. In 1988, they released "Ourselves" on the indie label Restless Records.[2]

Adams left the band in 1987. In 1990, the band took 3 years off from touring and recording music. Adams rejoined the band when they reformed in 1993. They recorded a new album in 1993 which was called "Out the Shizzy".[1]

They are sometimes classified as a straight edge band but the members refuse to embrace the label.
