The Germs disbanded following Crash's suicide on December 7, 1980. Their music was influential to many later punk rock acts.

Pat Smear went on to achieve greater fame performing with Nirvana and the Foo Fighters. In 2005, actor Shane West was cast to play Crash in the Germs biographical film What We Do Is Secret (named after a song by the Germs). He performed with Smear, Doom, and Bolles at a production party for the film, after which the Germs reformed with West as singer. The new lineup of the band has performed a number of tours in the United States, including performances on the 2006 and 2008 Warped Tours. Read more on Last.fm.
