The Ziggens are a band based out of Orange County, California whose self-described style of "cowpunksurfabilly" combines elements of surf, rockabilly, punk, and ska. The Ziggens have been playing since the early 1990s and have developed a strong following in Southern California.
The Ziggens were contemporaries with Sublime and were originally signed to their Skunk Records label. Their song "Big Salty Tears" was covered and popularized by Bradley Nowell on the Sublime acoustic album. The Ziggens, and more specifically Bert Susanka were also mentioned in the Sublime song Greatest Hits. Also, their song "Outside" is sampled in the Sublime song Smoke Two Joints for the line "Smoked cigarettes 'til the day she died!"
