Revolting Cocks (often abbreviated Revco) are an American industrial band that began as a musical side-project for Alain Jourgensen (Ministry) and Luc Van Acker.
The group was founded in 1985 by Jourgensen and Belgians Luc Van Acker, Patrick Codenys and Richard 23 (Front 242). The first release was No Devotion on Wax Trax records.
Losing Richard 23 and Patrick Codenys after some creative differences, the group's remaining two members were augmented by a rapidly changing set of musicians centered around Chris Connelly (Fini Tribe, later Damage Manual), Paul Barker (Ministry), Duane Buford, and Bill Rieflin (who is now playing for REM), with around twenty others as irregular contributors or guest artists.
The single was quickly followed by an album Big Sexy Land in 1986, followed by a live album You Goddamned Son of a Bitch in 1987 and Beers, Steers, and Queers in 1989. After a hiatus, Linger Ficken' Good, was released in 1993 - this would be Revolting Cocks' last album for over 10 years.
