100 Derece, also known as 100 °C and Yüz Derece (meaning "100 Degrees") is a Turkish ska punk band. They describe their music as a "Punk'n Roll", which is a mixture of 1950s rock n'roll, 1960s reggae as well as 1980s and 1990s punk rock.[1]

History[edit]

100 Derece was formed in 2000 by high school friends Barış Çakır, Uluç Taşocak and Emre Cebeci. They drew inspiration from musical acts such as Siddhartha, Dawn, Barış 'Monkey's Popcorn, Cockroach (band), Emre 'Dimensions and Taxi. The band began performing regularly in concerts and produced four demos in 2005. They were signed up by Ada Müzik and released their first album called Kahpe Felek in 2005. 100 Derece performed in several local and international festivals including H 2000, Rock İstanbul, Europe Music Fest. Between 2006 to 2007, the band was inactive due to the members being called up for military service. After their term ended, the band resumed it activitites, eventually releasing the album Mavra.
