Backyard Babies is a Swedish hard rock and punk rock band from Nässjö. Formed in 1987, it is originally composed of singer Tobbe, guitarist Dregen, bassist Johan Blomqvist and drummer Peder Carlsson. After the recording of a demo and some local concerts, in 1989 the group thanks Tobbe and replaces him with singer Nicke Borg; two more demos followed, as well as a national tour, and in 1991 the Backyard Babies launched their first official release, the EP Something to Swallow. Signing with the Swedish label Megarock in 1993, the following year the quartet released his first studio album, Diesel and Power, before disagreeing with Dregen who wants to work with his other group, the Hellacopters.
The Backyard Babies meet in 1997 for the album Total 13, and later release Making Enemies is Good (2001), Stockholm Syndrome (2003), People Like People Like People Like Us (2006) and Backyard Babies (2008). In 2010, the group embarked on a tour called Them XX after the release of a best of the same name. After a long break since 2008, the Backyard Babies have come together again to prepare the album Four By Four which was released in 2015.

Dregen will participate in two Hellacopters albums, Supershitty to the Max! (1996) and Payin 'the Dues (1997).
