Fifty Dollar Famous

About

Fifty Dollar Famous is a two-piece band that plays punk for money.
One drummer. One bass player. And zero f@cks.

On a cold Saturday night in January 2016, Fifty Dollar Famous set up at Craterface Studios in warm and cheerful Centerville, OH. They checked some levels then bullshitted around and watched House Hunters until bed time. Sunday morning they ate cereal while they checked local real estate listings. Then they got to work. From 10:30 AM until 6:30 PM they wrote and recorded 10 brand new punk rock anthem. The result (with the addition of two previously recorded tracks written and recorded in under an hour) is the most punk album ever made: Lower Your Standards.

Fifty Dollar Famous is
James R. Tramontana: bass/vocals
Andris M. Devine: drums/vocals

RIYL: Black Flag, Circle Jerks, The Mentors, Sloppy Seconds, Off, Cerebral Ballzy.

Fifty Dollar Famous is a side project of the nerd rock band Red Hot Rebellion. The bass player and drummer wanted to prove that good quality punk rock can be written and recorded with no preparation (and for the hell of it).
