Sex Stains is an American punk rock band from Los Angeles formed in 2014 by Allison Wolfe, a former member of Bratmobile, alongside David Orlando, Sharif Dumani, Francisco "Pachy" Garcia, and Mecca Vazie Andrews. In 2016, the band had released their debut album, eponymously titled Sex Stains.
In December 2016, months after performing at Comet Ping Pong, the band was targeted by individuals who believed in the Pizzagate conspiracy theory. The band responded by closing the comments on their YouTube channel writing in the description in one of their videos: "We're shocked & disgusted by the theory that we are somehow linked to Pedophelia [sic] rings or Satanic cults, and also by the hateful comments & accusations we've been receiving. WE ARE NOT pedophiles and do NOT support or promote it. Period. Again, we are just a punk rock band."
