They released only one album, 1979's (GI), produced by Joan Jett, and were featured in Penelope Spheeris' seminal documentary film The Decline of Western Civilization, which chronicled the Los Angeles punk movement.

In 2005, actor Shane West was cast to play Crash in the biographical film What We Do Is Secret.
