RIP OFF has existed since 1999 and was intended mostly as a cover band. Mike and Patrick met in 1988 to then start another band known as the F11.

On the way different bands created and splintered, but they both have always cooperated with each other. Today they run RIP OFF jointly as a party duo and make music in different genres.

Everything is created in our own studio as both cover songs and their own material. Patrick is the one that stands for the vocals and melodies, Mike is the one who plays guitar and is responsible for the technical part.
