Doc Hopper was an American punk band from Maine, and later Boston, Massachusetts who released material through Go-Kart Records and a number of smaller independent record labels throughout their career. A fixture at the MidEast in Cambridge, Mass. in the early-mid 90's, they won the "Battle of the Bands" in 1995, as had there spiritual and musical ancestors Gang Green years before them. Like Gang Green, they were cursed forever after. They drove in a Van named, naturally, Halen.
