The Dils were one of San Diego’s first working punk bands. Chip and Tony Kinman and the Dils played many of the city’s first punk shows, alongside the Zeros, the Hitmakers, the Penetrators, and others. They’re best known nationally from the film Cheech and Chong's Up In Smoke, where they’re seen playing (badly) at the end of the Battle of the Bands sequence.
