The Buzzhorn is an American hard rock band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The band's lineup consisted of Bert Zweber (guitars), Ryan Mueller (vocals), Todd Joseph (bass), and Rob Bueno (drums). In 1997, the group began performing around the Milwaukee club circuit. In 1998, the group recorded its debut album, self-producing it on a tight budget. The end result was "A Complete Package Of Action-Packed Tragedies", which drew praise among local music critics. In 2000, Buzzhorn self-released an EP. A label representative from Atlantic Records heard the band and signed them to a contract in January, 2001.
