One Car Pile-Up is a United Kingdom melodic punk band which formed in the Scunthorpe area in 1996.

Chris Lonsdale was the bassist in local band Gan at the time, and approached Wes Wasley to form a new band. They wrote songs at Wes' house while thinking about other people to complete the line-up. Chris brought along Dave Clarke who was the singer in Gan and so the search was on for a drummer.

After trying a couple of local people it was obvious they needed someone who could play fast, and Wes suggested Robin 'Towie' Tow who used to play in Mental Seizure with him, knowing they shared similar tastes in music and was a reliable musician.They played their first gig at The schnapps Barge in Grimsby with Pinto, Chopper and Gan (their final gig) as Red 5, but after realising another band had the name they drew up a short-list of other names. Among them was Billion Dollar Brian, Scheider, and many equally bad puns.

Drawing influences/stealing from bands such as Bad Religion, Nofx, & Propagandhi they toured the country gaining friends and fans.

After spending an eternity recording their debut album in their home studio Worst Episode Ever was eventually released in 2003.

The band is currently working on a new album, with a likely release date of 2010.
