Scatterbrain was an eclectic thrash metal band formed in 1989 when Long Island, New York hardcore (NYHC) group Ludichrist broke up so Tommy Christ and Glen Cummings formed scatterbrain

The band contributed a cover of LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out" to the soundtrack of the 1992 movie Encino Man.

In 1993 Cummings left the group. The remaining members Christ, Neider, Brogna and Boyko wrote and released a 7 song album titled: Mundus Intellectualis (1994).

The band stopped writing, recording, or touring in 1994.

In 2007 the band temporarily reformed to play a handful of reunion shows without Cummings.[2]

Their most popular single "Don't Call Me Dude" was a top-twenty pop single in Australia.[3] The video received regular rotation on MTV's "Headbangers Ball." The same video is also featured in the episode Blood Drive on MTV's "Beavis and Butt-head."

The band featured distinctive live shows incorporating bizarre cover songs such as a medley of Mozart mixed with Motörhead and unusual costumes such as a cross-dressing or giant chickens.
