Waysted is a heavy metal band formed by the UFO bass guitarist Pete Way and the Scottish rocker Fin Muir (Ian More) in 1982. Recruiting Frank Noon (formerly with Def Leppard), Ronnie Kayfield and Paul Raymond, Waysted signed to Chrysalis Records and released Vices in 1983.

The band has gone through multiple line up changes over the years, with members leaving, rejoining and leaving again, as well as periods of complete dormancy while Way pursued other projects.

The band split up in 1987 then reformed in 2003.

In 2008, Waysted were touring the UK in support of their new album The Harsh Reality.
