Dirty Rotten Imbeciles (also known as D.R.I.) are a crossover thrash band that formed in 1982.
The band never gained any mainstream audience, but were an influence on their contemporaries—most notably Suicidal Tendencies, Corrosion of Conformity, and S.O.D.—alongside whom they are considered the early pioneers of the sound that would later be called crossover thrash. This genre was also coined from their 1987 album Crossover.
Although the band is still active today, the only new material D.R.I. have released since their 1995 album, Full Speed Ahead, was a web-only demo release of the track "Against Me" in 2004.
