MDC (Millions of Dead Cops) is an American hardcore punk band formed in Austin, Texas in 1979.
MDC originally formed as The Stains before changing their name. Playing fast, hardcore punk associated with far left sociopolitical issues has earned the band close association with Jello Biafra and the Dead Kennedys, as well as numerous other US punk bands of the early eighties. The band was also unique in frequently changing their name to a different initialism of MDC with every new record released.
MDC's intitial run ended in 1995, and the band spent five years on hiatus before returning in 2000 with new members.
