Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät (PKN) is a punk band that was formed in 2009. Pertti Kurikka, the band’s guitarist and front man, writes the lyrics with vocalist Kari Aalto and composes the music. The other two members of the band are bassist Sami Helle and drummer Toni Välitalo.

”The members of our band are four middle-aged, mentally handicapped men. The music is, of course, Finnish punk.” – Sami Helle, Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät

The band achieved cult status with its first demo Kallioon and has since released 7 EP’s, 2 singles and two compilations. In May 2015 the band will release a new compilation The Best of Greatest Hits which includes all the band’s recordings to date.

PKN is also popular outside Finland. The band has toured in several countries including the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Norway, Canada and the Netherlands.

PKN was the subject of an award-winning documentary, Kovasikajuttu (The Punk Syndrome) which premiered in the spring of 2012.

No. We fight before and after the gig.

Lyrics of Aina Mun Pitää

Aina mun pitää siivota Aina mun pitää tiskata Aina mun pitää käydä lääkärissä Aina mun pitää käydä töissä En saa mennä koneelle En katsoo telkkarii En saa edes nähdä mun kavereita Aina mun pitää olla kotona Aina mun pitää tehdä asioita Aina mun pitää syödä kunnolla Aina mun pitää juoda kunnolla En saa syödä karkkia En juoda limua En saa edes juoda alkoholia Aina mun pitää levätä Aina mun pitää nukkua Aina mun pitää herätä Aina mun pitää käydä suihkussa

Faut à chaque fois que j’fasse le ménage, Faut à chaque fois que j’fasse la vaisselle Faut à chaque fois j’voie le médecin Faut à chaque fois que j’aille bosser J’peux pas aller sur l’ordi J’peux pas regarder la télé Même pas voir mes potes Faut à chaque fois que j’reste chez moi Faut à chaque fois que j’fasse des trucs Faut à chaque fois que j’mange correctement Faut à chaque fois que j’boive correctement J’peux pas bouffer de bonbons J’peux pas boire de limonade Même pas boire d’alcool Faut à chaque fois que j’me repose Faut à chaque fois que j’dorme Faut à chaque fois que j’me réveille Faut à chaque fois que j’prenne une douche
