Sloppy Seconds is a Ramones-influenced punk band from Indianapolis, Indiana that started in the mid-1980s. They gained notoriety in the underground punk scene with songs like "Come Back, Traci" (a tribute to the underage porn queen Traci Lords), "I Don't Want to be a Homosexual", "Jani is a Nazi", "I Want 'em Dead" and "So Fucked up".

The band's unusual and controversial lyrics encompass pornography, classic horror movies, classic television shows, comic books, alcohol, being fat, and getting drunk.

Sloppy Seconds hosted a yearly festival called Sloppypalooza in Indianapolis, Indiana.

They have been quoted as being proud to be fat, drunk, and stupid. Their name derives from the slang term "sloppy seconds", describing the act in which a man has intercourse with another person who already has received another man's semen in the relevant orifice. In 2008, the group returned after a long hiatus, releasing Endless Bummer, their first full-length in ten years.[1] Sloppy Seconds' first studio album, "Destroyed" was reissued on Kid Tested records. In 2010, Sloppy Seconds toured in support of the 20th anniversary of "Destroyed".
