Dynamite Cop was a band composed of Kesha and her brother, Lagan. The band was formed sometime in 2004 after Kesha moved to California and the pair shared an apartment. The band was first mentioned in Kesha's illustrated autobiography, My Crazy Beautiful Life. She described the band as "garage rock" and the songs were composed by "banging on any instrument they could get their hands on until they had a song". All their known live performances took place in 2007.
