Gear Daddies

 The Gear Daddies are a rock band originally from Austin, Minnesota. Randy Broughten, Nick Ciola, Billy Dankert, and Martin Zellar played their first shows together in 1984. They released singles and albums between 1986 and 1992 and became an important part of the Twin Cities music scene. Most songs were written by Zellar, though Dankert also had several of note, including crowd favorite "Time Heals".

Their most notable mainstream success was when Zellar and Broughten played "Stupid Boy" on Late Night with David Letterman in 1991. Ciola and Dankert did not play on the show because many bands simply sat in with The World's Most Dangerous Band. Zellar had this to say of the experience: "I was so nervous, and it happened so quick. I couldn't tell you what the hell happened. I got done, and I was walking back and said to Randy, 'Did I sing all the words? Did I do that?' When I watched it that night in the hotel room I had no recollection of having lived it."

"Zamboni" is their best-known song, having been featured in the movies D2: The Mighty Ducks and Mystery, Alaska, as well as on television program Malcolm in the Middle. It is often played during intermissions at hockey games throughout North America.
