ASG are a stoner rock band originating from Wilmington, North Carolina. Originally known as All Systems Go in 2001, the band would shorten their name to the acronym ASG after a brief copyright issue with another band of the same name. Through the years the band has claimed in jest that ‘ASG’ has several alternate meanings, including “amplification of self gratification”, “all systems gone”, “anarchist school for girls” among others. ASG has credited influences such as Queens of the Stone Age, Jane’s Addiction, Torche, Zeke, and Ween. In a review of the album Win Us Over, Allmusic wrote that the band’s sound combines “the best qualities of Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age”.

The band formed as a quartet in 2001 and has largely maintained the same consistent lineup for twenty years, with Andy Ellis (Bass), Scott Key (Drums), Jonah Citty (Guitar) and Jason Shi (Guitar, Vocals, Lead Songwriter). Signing to Volcom in 2002 and releasing three albums in quick succession, along with appearing on the Warped Tour for four consecutive years, ASG has attained an underground following, as a number of their songs have been featured in skateboarding, surfing, and snowboarding videos. Tracks from ASG’s albums have been played on MTV shows, including Viva La Bam, Rob & Big, Living Lahaina, Homewrecker, Bam’s Unholy Union, Road Rules/Real World Challenge, Remaking Vince Neil and as background music in numerous surfing and snowboarding videos. Their song “The Dull Blade” from the album Win Us Over was included in the soundtrack of the popular skateboarding video game Skate 2 and “Dream Song” (also from the album Win Us Over), is included in the soundtrack for the video game Splatterhouse, that was released in the Fall 2010.
