The Adolescents are an American punk rock band formed in 1980 in Fullerton, California. From its earliest days, the band has functioned as a kind of SoCal punk supergroup, being formed originally from early members of Agent Orange and Social Distortion.

Since its inception The Adolescents has undergone a series of breakups, reunions, and lineup changes. Their first breakup came in 1981, the same year their self-titled debut LP was released. The band reunited in 1986 and released the LPs Brats in Battalions and Balboa Fun*Zone before splitting up again in 1989. After a one-off reunion performance in 1994, the band reunited yet again in 2001 for a 20th anniversary tour and have continued performing ever since. The Adolescents began releasing new material again with the albums OC Confidential (2005) and The Fastest Kid Alive (2011).
