Troublemakers are a Swedish punk band originally formed in Gothenburg in 1981 with members from Perverts (they often play "Ronka" by Perverts live[1]) and Göteborg Sound. After a while the band split up in 1991, but reformed in 1995. The band has been described as "kukrock"[2] and compared with a runaway express train.[3]

Members are (or have been) are Christer Blomgren (vocals), Arild “Psychobilly” Hanssen (guitar), Christian “Elvis” Odin (bass), Charlie Claeson (drums), Martin Hansson (drums), Jens Petersson (bass), Lars-Olof “LOB” Bengtsson (guitar), Dennis Johansson (bass), Jan Olof “Esso” Olsson (drums) and Anders Puke (bass).

In 2010 Troublemakers won first prize in the punk/hardcore category at Manifest for their album Made in Sweden.[4]
