1208 (generally pronounced "twelve-o-eight" or "twelve-zero-eight") is a punk rock band from Hermosa Beach, California that formed in 1994.

The name "1208" came from the apartment number they first shared. To date, they have released two full-length studio albums on Epitaph Records: Feedback Is Payback (2002) and Turn of the Screw (2004). Their song "Fall Apart" from Turn of The Screw was featured on the popular PlayStation 2 and Xbox game Burnout 3.

In November 2006, the band was reported to be working on a third album,[1][2] however the future of 1208 has been a topic for discussion on many internet message boards. No further news has been released on the status of the new album and the band has not confirmed if Epitaph or a new label will handle it. As of mid-2005 their official website has been down.

Singer Alex Flynn is the nephew of Black Flag founder Greg Ginn and artist Raymond Pettibon.[3]
