He has typically written songs about love interests, failed relationships, politics, and atheism. Lemming's history began when Dustin Rouan and Corey Bruns met in 2nd grade at Westview Elementary. Dustin soon introduced Corey to the grunge music of the 90s Nirvana and punk rock such as the Sex Pistols, and the pair eventually started to take guitar lessons. They found a drummer and formed Pen15 in 1998. Around 2001 Corey started to focus on his own music and broke off from the band to perform solo acoustic shows as Landen (his middle name). The pair teamed up again in 2002 to form Lemming.
Dustin was the original on and off drummer. The other drummers included Scott Simmons, Ian Scott, & Braden Bankes but Dustin remained with the band whenever a drummer was needed but focused full time as frontman of Pen-15. Lemming also included bassists Andy Kennedy and Danny Lentz at different times after Danny left in 2006. The band was a two-piece, guitar & drums, up until 2008 when Julie Zylinsky joined. That was the same year that Dustin became the permanent drummer. Julie joined after dating Corey for a couple of months. She had dated a bassist previously and picked up on all the songs in no time.
She also plays keys on half of the songs adding another element to the band's sound.

"This is what you get when you mix a metal hippie chick, a sharp skinhead, and a straight edge dictator who believes in nonbelief. So we all played eachothers songs and learned how to compromise under social, philosphical and political differences. Luckely we all ended up getting along and making some pretty neat music.
With Thanayi's powerfull bass playing, Alan's straight forward working class drumming and my guitar noise I think we did a damn good job at confusing ourselves and whomever else we might of been playing for." They released a 13-song demo cassette in 1994, called Follow Me. 2 of these songs were re-released on a split 7" with Son Jose's apeface on Stinky Feet (which was repressed on Nothing Enterprises) in late 1994, and another one, Like a Giant Space Station, went to a comp CD called How Lovely Nowhere Is, released on Nothing Enterprises in 1995. Good stuff. 3) Lemming was a Dutch rockband. Their live performances were famous, because they had always a lot of fire and smoke on stage and (sometimes) there was even a naked female dancer present.
Lemming released only one album. They had however a few single hits afterwards. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
