Goodnight Nurse formed in 2001 after bass player Paul Taite responded to a flyer placed in Auckland University bar Shadows by frontman Joel Little and drummer Jaden Parkes.

A pop-rock band with punk influences, they were often labelled as New Zealand's answer to US pop-punk bands such as Green Day and Blink-182. Their prolific live shows and playful, radio friendly singles resulted in a large and dedicated online following. From 2004 to 2008 the band had five singles in the NZ Top 40.
