Lamont was a stoner rock trio founded in 1998 in Allston, Massachusetts, USA.

Critics have described their sound as raw 1970s AC/DC style rock and roll mixed with Iggy Pop vocals and bluesy punk.[citation needed] They have opened for artists including Mojo Nixon, Reverend Horton Heat, and Drive-By Truckers as well as appearing at the Emissions from the Monolith festivals.[citation needed] Their song "Hotwire", from their 2002 album Thunder Boogie, was included in the video game Tony Hawk's Underground.[1]

Lamont broke up in 2007, with lead singer/guitarist Pete Knipfing playing in Mess with the Bull, a psychobilly/death metal band that includes members of Scissorfight. The band played a reunion show in October 2011.
