Finally Punk are an all-female punk quartet based in Austin, Texas formed in 2005.

Their demo CD-R titled, Get Serious, was released the same year which included various lo-fi one-minute long punk tracks recorded in true D.I.Y. tradition---on a 4-track in their livingroom. Notably, their Nirvana cover for Negative Creep and aesthetic of rotating instrument and vocal duties, quickly gained attention by Pitchfork Media and Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), among others. Following their demo release, they assembled 12 songs onto their debut Self-Titled 7" LP released in June 2006, and was distributed by Rough Trade and Kill Rock Stars, due to constant support of Tobi Vail (Bikini Kill) who stated:

That Summer, they embarked on an extensive two-month U.S. national tour with queercore punk band Kiosk from Australia.

In June 2007, Finally Punk released their Primary Colors EP on the Atlanta based label Army of Bad Luck run by Josh Fauver (Deerhunter). In support of their EP, they did a second national U.S. tour with all-female punk band, New Bloods of Portland, Oregon.

Over the course of four years as a band, they gained many positive reviews. They were featured on the cover of Maximum Rocknroll issued November 2007, which includes an interview given by Gene Defcon (The Prima Donnas) and introductory by Layla Gibbon of Skinned Teen.

Finally Punk have also toured alongside bands such as Sex Vid and The Strange Boys.
