Splitting D.O.A.

The Kings of Punk, Hockey, and Beer.

The iconic Canadian punk band D.O.A. aren’t shy about their love for the game — they named an album Kings of Punk, Hockey, and Beer released on Joe Keithley's Sudden Death records. But unlike the many novelty acts who are jokey about their allegiance to a sport, food group, or any other theme to write around, D.O.A. were the real deal and were respected enough to be considered a legitimate part of the most defining era of punk rock.

Our friend Bev Davies gave us these amazing images of D.O.A. both performing, and playing hockey, as well as some insight on the what the band has meant to the scene over the years. She grew up around Vancouver, where she still resides to this day, shooting what she’s drawn to, which is mostly rock and roll music and the people surrounding it.

  

Listen to one of our favorite tracks by the band that references the game within the game...

 

One day I’m gonna make a point

A point of telling you

Gonna take a point from you in overtime

One day I’m gonna get the nerve

And ask you for you number

But you just give me the lumber

In overtime.

You say I’m too offensive.

Well I’ll split your defense tonight.

I’m gonna pour my heart out

But you just think I suck;

But I don’t give a puck

Away in overtime -

In overtime in overtime in overtime.
