Limp Wrist is a queercore hardcore punk band featuring members of Los Crudos, Hail Mary, Devoid of Faith, and Kill the Man Who Questions. Referring to their style of hardcore punk music, the band declared in "Frontiers" newsmagazine, "We put the ‘core’ back in Queercore".


Their first recording was the self released demo "Don't Knock It Till You Try It". This was followed by a single called "What’s Up With The Kids" and then the self-titled LP "Limp Wrist". However, since band members lived in different states maintaining the group became difficult. After an interlude they resumed touring in 2004 and released a new CD, "Complete Discography" the same year. The song "Ode" from this recording pays tribute to pioneering gay hardcore musicians Gary Floyd of The Dicks, Randy Turner of Big Boys and Joshua Plague of Mukilteo Fairies and Behead the Prophet, No Lord Shall Live, providing a historical context for Limp Wrist.

The band’s best known song was "I Love Hardcore Boys, I Love Boys Hardcore", which received much attention from fans and press alike. Lead singer Martin Sorrondeguy appears in "Queercore: A Punk-u-mentary" by Scott Treleaven and addresses the issue implicit in these song titles.

In 2002, "Maximum RockNRoll" featured Martin Sorrondeguy in its "QueerPunk" issue, in discussion with Gary Fembot and Iraya Robles of Sta-Prest, and Aaron Detroit of The Little Deaths.

In 2004 Sorrondeguy released his own documentary film, "". He had begun the film while still a member of his former band Los Crudos.

In 2006, Limp Wrist released the split label 7", "Want Us Dead" on Cheap Art/Lengua Armada.
