The Oblivians were an American punk rock trio that existed from 1993 to 1998. In the 1990s, their blues-infused brand of bravado, crudely-recorded music made them one of the most popular and prominent bands within the underground garage rock scene.

Formed in Memphis, Tennessee, the band consisted of three members -- Greg Cartwright, Jack Yarber, and Eric Friedl -- who alternated between instruments on stage and in the studio, each member serving as vocalist, guitarist, and drummer, in turn. The band recorded three LPs, as well as a number of EPs and singles, typically recording songs live in the studio.

The band has performed numerous reunion shows since officially disbanding, as well as a highly anticipated 2009 European reunion tour with The Gories, who also reformed to co-headline the dates.

As of January 2012, it has been confirmed that the Oblivians are due to record a new full-length album on In The Red Records
