Duh is the debut full-length album released by the punk rock band Lagwagon.

Production and marketing[edit]

Duh was recorded in January 1992 at Westbeach Recorders with producer Fat Mike. Frontman Joey Cape on the recording:

Back then, we were experienced in the studio. It was less about the recording process and more about rehearsing. We recorded and mixed Duh in 4 days. There's something to be said for a budget. You have to have your shit together before you go into the studio and the end result is a record that better reflects the band’s sound at the time. I think that's why so many band's first records are considered to be their best. Personally, I don’t think Duh was our best though.
