Diarrhea Planet is an American six-piece garage punk band from Nashville, Tennessee, United States, formed in 2009. The band is composed of singer-guitarist Jordan Smith, guitarist-singer Emmett Miller, guitarist Evan Bird, guitarist-singer Brent Toler, bassist Mike Boyle, and drummer Ian Bush. Diarrhea Planet has described its sound as "pop played through the filter of heavy metal" and have cited influences such as Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, and Dokken. Diarrhea Planet has drawn wide acclaim for their rowdy live shows, which occasionally feature covers of Bruce Springsteen and Third Eye Blind. The band has previously toured with Titus Andronicus, JEFF The Brotherhood, Screaming Females, The So So Glos, and Those Darlins.

The band self-released their first EP, Aloha!, in 2009, receiving over 10,000 free downloads. The band would soon sign to independent label Infinity Cat Recordings, and released their first full-length, Loose Jewels, with the label in 2011. Their 2013 release, I'm Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams, was produced and mixed by Kevin S. McMahon at Marcata Recording over the course of just eight days, consisting almost entirely of live takes. It would bring the band its most attention yet, and led to appearances at festivals including SXSW, Bonnaroo, and Governors Ball Music Festival. To promote the album, the band released music videos for tracks "Separations", "Ugliest Son", and "Babyhead".

The track "Separations" was used in the soundtrack of the HBO show "Animals", appearing in the end credits of "Rats" (the Pilot episode for the series) as well as making occasional appearances throughout the show, (along with other modern punk songs by both Diarrhea Planet and other bands, adding to the urban aesthetic of the show).
