Trigger Happy, later The Almighty Trigger Happy, were a punk rock band formed in Toronto, Ontario. They were active between 1991 and 1999 with a brief reunion in 2004. They released 5 full length albums, 1 re-released full length, 2 split records and were featured on several compilations. The band sadly disbanded in the winter of 1999 immediately following the release of their BAD TASTE RECORDS release I HATE US. As they began to intimidate audiences internationally, the name THE ALMIGHTY TRIGGER HAPPY started to become synonymous with a true live experience.
