Limp were a punk rock band from the San Francisco Bay Area that released three albums on Honest Don's, a subsidiary label of Fat Wreck Chords, as well as an EP on Fueled By Ramen, and a 7" record of early material on Coldfront Records.

Limp's illustrious career was launched with the release of their first full length "Pop and Disorderly" in 1997. Hailing from the East Bay, Limp was born out of the same punk scene that brought about Rancid, Neurosis, Econochrist, and Fang. The similarities end there however, as Limp is neither crusty nor testosterone-driven, and Pop and Disorderly is hard evidence of that. The record was well received not only because of its highly infectious content but also because the band remained on the road for over a year in support of the album.

Despite the hectic touring schedule, in 1998 Limp recorded a five-song EP for Less Than Jake's label, Fueled By Ramen, titled "Fine Girl". Recorded by Ryan Greene and mixed by Kevin Army (Green Day and Operation Ivy). Fine Girl exceeded everyone's expectations. In fact, Fueled by Ramen has pressed the record over three times. It was at about this time that Limp was even being courted by Blink-182 to jump ship and join them on MCA.

Limp released their sophomore LP for Honest Don's in February of 1999. The album was titled "Guitarded", and was recorded over the course of seven months in 1998 between a slew of tours. Guitarded was a huge hit on college radio and got more airplay than any previous Honest Don's record. Their commercial and touring success made it clear that great things were happening for Limp.

In 2002, Limp released their self-titled third studio full length, which was recorded at Motor Studios with the illustrious Ryan Greene, who produced Pop and Disorderly and Guitarded. Greene is known for his work with other bands like NOFX, Cheap Trick, Nerf Herder, Ridel High, Swingin Utters, Fenix TX, and Lagwagon, and continues to be a part of Limp's recipe for success. The self-titled album is full of surprises and displays Limp's ability to blend catchy pop-punk with dynamic rock. Producer Ryan Greene had this to say about the record, "It's crazy. There's some insane vocal stuff going on here."Limp disbanded shortly after the release of their self titled album.

Limp has done full tours with: MxPx, The Donnas, Less Than Jake, Lagwagon, Suicide Machines, Dance Hall Crashers, and Bouncing Souls to name a few. In addition to Limp's rigorous touring schedule, the band played high-profile dates with Blink-182, The Offspring, Goldfinger, NOFX, Foo Fighters, The Specials, and Unwritten Law as well as performing on the Warped Tour and at CMJ.
