A proto-punk band in Detroit formed by Bobby (bass, vocals), David (guitar), and Dannis (drums) Hackney. 

In 1974, they recorded seven songs at United Sound Studios with engineer Jim Vitti.  Columbia Records president Clive Davis funded the recording sessions. Their seven songs were not widely released until 2009.

Death is the subject of the 2013 documentary A Band Called Death.
