Dune Rats are an Australian rock band from Brisbane, Queensland. Originally, the band formed as a duo, with Danny Beus on guitar and lead vocals and BC Michaels on drums and backing vocals.[1][2][3] The band later became a three-piece, with Brett Jansch (formerly a touring member of Bleeding Knees Club) joining as bassist. Brad Heald, originally from Red Riders and The Vines, also made touring appearances on bass from 2011 to 2012.

In June 2014 the band released their self-titled debut album through their label Ratbag Records. They supported the release with a global and national tour.[4] The following year they announced that they were officially launching Ratbag Records as a record label that would take on other performers.[5]

On 11 February 2017, their second album The Kids Will Know It's Bullshit debuted at number one on the ARIA Albums Chart.[6]
