Me First and the Gimme Gimmes is an American band that exclusively plays punk rock covers from San Francisco, California.

Formed in 1995 by Spike Slawson, Joey Cape, Christ Shiflett, Michael “Fat Mike” Burkett and Dave Raun. They released their first single in the same year as their formation entitled “Denver” through Fat Mike’s own label, Fat Wreck Chords. The single which featured a cover of John Denver’s song; the following two years the group released two more singles with the names of the artist they covered for the singles. In July 1997 Me First and Gimme Gimmes released their first full-length album entitled “Have A Ball.” The album featured covers of artists such as Elton John, Neil Diamond, and John Denver. Their second album, “Are A Drag,” had the theme of being entirely made up of showtunes.

As with each of their albums they released, their live shows would have a gimmick of wearing quirky matching costumes, sometimes even matching their album themes. In 2006 the group released their sixth album, “Love Their Country” which had a country western theme. A year later they released a sampler of Christmas songs, and “Go Down Under” a year after that. In 2011 they released an album in Japan that was an album entirely of Japanese music as a part of their tour in Japan.
