American punk rock band formed in Austin, Texas in 1980, moving to San Francisco in 1983, and breaking up in 1986, reuniting occasionally until 2016.

The original line-up included Gary Floyd (vocals), Glen Taylor (2), (guitar), Buxf Parrot (bass), and Pat Deason (drums). The band was known for their confrontational stage presence (Floyd was an open homosexual who frequently appeared in drag on stage and had no qualms about getting in the face of close-minded audience members) and raucous music. In 1983, the band relocated to San Francisco, California. However, Taylor, Parrot, and Deason soon decided to return to Austin. Floyd carried on with the Dicks' name, recruiting new members Lynn Perko (drums), Sebastian Fuchs (bass), and Tim Carroll (2) (guitar). This line-up released one LP before calling it quits in 1986.

Floyd and Perko went on to form Sister Double Happiness.

The original Austin lineup reunited occasionally over the following years, until the death of guitarist Glen Taylor (2) in 1997.

In 2004, Floyd, Parrot, and Deason reunited again to perform shows around Austin, joined variously by guitarists Mark Kenyon, Brian McGee (2), and Davy Jones. Their final show was October 31, 2016.

Gary Floyd died on May 2, 2024.
