The Ukus are a Punk Goes Pop cover band from Honolulu, specializing in rapid-fire punk rock reinterpretations of popular modern Hawaiian songs. Originally, The Ukus went by the working name Hawaiian Punk Rock Band, but when politely asked by a local promoter to change their band name to "anything other than the Hawaiian Punk Rock Band," bass player Chris had suggested to name the band after the pidgin word for head lice, and the name stuck! Get it? Anyway, upon accepting the gig and subsequent name change, The Ukus - as the band is known by today - officially formed in August, 2019.

For some time prior, founding member Brian Roberts had been experimenting with the Hawaiian styled Pop Goes Punk concept for many years by himself, through various bands [like Leviathan], and musicians with inconsequential results. Finally the concept project was able to get the off the ground with the help of members from the Aloha Karaoke Band in late 2018.
