At one show, Ironlung dislocated his shoulder and then spent the entire show trying to punch it back into place. Muzzey left the band soon after, and was replaced by Ironlung's brother Kevin J. Strongbow. They recorded their debut, 1996's "Guaranteed Kill", and found themselves getting quite a lot of press in the underground.
The band followed it up with 1998's "Balls Deep", which received good reviews from mainstream publications. Their success in Boston was now quite impressive, and they signed to independent label Tortuga Recordings to release 1999's "New Hampshire". The radio play they received locally earned them a spot at the River Rave festival, where they performed with Cypress Hill and Stone Temple Pilots. They released a EP of covers entitled "Piscataqua" soon after, and were featured on MTV's "You Hear It First" segment.
In 2001 the band released two albums, the original "Mantrapping for Sport and Profit" and an album of re-recorded songs to be released in Britain called "American Cloven Hoof Blues". A series of EPs ("Potential New Agent for Unconventional Warfare", "Deathchants", "Breakdowns and Military Waltzes, Vol. 2", and "Victory over Horseshit") followed, with the full-length "Jaggernaut" arriving in March 2006. Scissorfight was named "best hard rock band" at the Boston Music Awards in 2003 and 2004. The band's name comes from the lesbian sexual practice called tribadism.
