Anal Cunt are an American grindcore band from Newton, Massachusetts. They have been categorized as grindcore,[1][2] noisecore, and hardcore. The band were famous for refusing to follow society's expected levels of behaviour. This non-conformity can be seen in the name of the band, and songs with titles such as "Recycling is Gay", "Kill Women" and "Eazy E got AIDS from Freddie Mercury".[3]

The lead singer, Seth Putnam, died on June 11, 2011, from a heart attack.[3]
