Gravy Train!!!! were an electroclash band from Oakland, California. The band released material on the labels S.P.A.M. Records, Cold Crush, Kill Rock Stars, Cochon Records, and Retard Disco. The band had four members (represented by the four exclamation marks in the band name),[3] that went by the pseudonyms Chunx, Funx, Hunx & Junx. Chunx and Funx formed the band in 2001 as a vehicle for recording humiliating songs about an ex-lover.[4] It was for this purpose that their first single, "Hella Nervous", was recorded. Shortly after, the two-piece recruited two openly gay backup dancers, Hunx and Drunx (Drunx was eventually replaced by Junx).[4]

Gravy Train!!!! toured with Bratmobile and Le Tigre. The band's albums and EPs include The "Menz" EP (Cold Crush 2002), Ghost Boobs (Kill Rock Stars 2003), "Hello Doctor" (Kill Rock Stars 2003), Are You Wigglin? (Kill Rock Stars 2005), and All the Sweet Stuff (Cochon Records 2007). Their DVD Stame the Batch! (Retard Disco) is a compilation of music videos, interviews, and other material.
