Charged GBH is a British punk rock band, formed by vocalist Collin Abrahall, guitarist Colin 'Jock' Blyth, bassist Sean McCarthy, and drummer Andrew Williams in 1978. GBH were early pioneers of English hardcore punk, along with Discharge, Broken Bones, The Exploited, and The Varukers. Originally known simply as GBH (inspired by then-bassist Sean McCarthy's trial for grievous bodily harm), their name was changed to Charged GBH in order to differentiate themselves from another band of the same.
