The group was initially known as The Veruccas, the band altered the spelling of their group name to " The Varukers " in order to convey more aggression. At the time when the band was recording in the early 1980s, they were part of a broader trend known as " UK 82 ", Second generation punk , or hardcore. Bands such as The Varukers, Discharge, Chaos UK, Amebit, and Charged GBH took existing 1977 punk sound and combined it with the incessant, heavy drumbeats and " wall of sound " distortion guitar sound of new wave of British heavy metal ( NWOBM ) bands such as Motorhead.
