Primus is an American rock band based in San Francisco, California, currently composed of bassist/vocalist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry "Ler" LaLonde and drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander.

Claypool has stated "We've been lumped in with the funk metal thing just about everywhere. I guess people just have to categorise you". MTV suggests that Primus is "a post-punk Rush spiked with the sensibility and humor of Frank Zappa".[69] Les Claypool himself once described their music as "psychedelic polka." Spin have labelled Primus as "pranksters" and an "unlikely gold-selling white trash purveyor of hard-ass pinballing funk metal".

Primus is also known for their unique live performances that feature extended solos and improvisation. Many of their songs have been upgraded significantly with changed lyrics, added solos, and general alterations in musical composition. Les Claypool often plays the whamola during drum solos.
