Peace, Love & Pitbulls (1992–1997) was a Swedish/Dutch industrial rock band headed by Joakim Thåström.

Thåström, who became famous in the 1970s and 1980s with his bands Ebba Grön and Imperiet, took a break from Sweden and moved to Amsterdam where he worked on the PLP project. Peace, Love & Pitbulls released three albums, all with songs in English and heavy, experimental rock music.

PLP was musically influenced by the German industrial rock band Einstürzende Neubauten, one of Thåström’s own favorite bands and the Swedish metal band Entombed.

Even though the band wasn't quite a success in their home country, their music is said to have inspired a lot of artists in the same genre. One such artist was Marilyn Manson, who spoke of PLP as a source of inspiration.[citation needed]
