Bands in Splatoon

S Band Squid Squad.jpg
Squid Squad
This group of squid punks is the Squid Squad. They're one of Inkopolis's hottest acts, and their tracks can be heard as background music during many of the Inkling Turf Wars. Sadly, their shows sell out instantly and they're always being mobbed by fans, so they don't make public appearances very often.
Squid Squads music combines a mixture of rock, punk rock, synthesizers and heavy metal. It is possibly Splatoon's most recognizable band, as the theme "Splattack!" could be seen as the series main theme. 8 4 (3 male, 1 female) Vocals, guitar, synthesizer, bass, drums
