Not to be confused with the 1960s/early-'70s psychedelic band that was also called the Godz, this was a hard rock band of the late '70s and '80s. They were formed in Ohio in 1976, when bassist Eric Moore got together with lead guitarist Mark Chatfield, rhythm guitarist/keyboardist Bob Hill, and drummer Glen Cataline. All four of them contributed lead vocals. The Godz signed with Casablanca in 1977, which was also the year in which they had an opening spot on Kiss' Love Gun Tour. They recorded two albums for Casablanca: 1978's The Godz and 1979's Nothing Is Sacred.
