The Exploited are a Scottish punk rock band from Edinburgh, Scotland, formed in 1979, in Edinburgh by Stevie Ross and Terry Buchan and later by ex-soldier Wattie Buchan (Terry’s brother). They signed to Secret Records in March 1981, and that year released their debut EP Army Life.

The album Punks Not Dead followed that year. The band maintained a large cult following in the 1980s among a hardcore working class punk and skinhead audience. Their songs have been covered by Slayer and Ice-T, and despite many lineup changes, Wattie has remained as the Exploited’s singer and leader.
