Education and scientific career
Aukerman and the Descendents attended Mira Costa High School. He earned a PhD degree in biology from UC San Diego, conducted postdoctoral studies in molecular biology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Pennsylvania, and served as an adjunct professor at the University of Delaware. Aukerman revealed in a 2016 interview with Spin that he had decided against studying in favour of doing music full-time.
Although not an original member, Aukerman joined Descendents after their first single ("Ride the Wild" b/w, which featured founding members Frank Navetta and Tony Lombardo on lead vocals, and "It's a Hectic World" b/w "It's a Hectic World" was released. The Fat EP, Aukerman's first recording with Descendents, was released in 1981. The first complete Descendents album was released in 1982 and was titled Milo Goes to College, as Aukerman had left the organization to pursue a degree in biochemistry at the University of California, San Diego. Descendents would briefly return to music and tour from 1983 to 1987, with Aukerman returning to record albums and go on tour. Aukerman departed the band after the 1987 album All had a supporting tour, and the remaining members continued to tour and record with a line of lead singers under the name All.
In 1995, Aukerman returned to Descendents, releasing the album Everything Sucks the following year. Following the tour supporting the album, he returned to Descendents regularly over the next ten years, first on tour and to record the EP 'Merican,' which was released in 2004 by Fat Wreck Chords.
Aukerman announced in July 2016 that he would leave his scientific career to pursue the Descendents full-time, blaming fire out of biochemistry and DuPont's layoff. On July 29, 2016, the band unveiled Hypercaffium Spazzinate, their seventh studio album.
Aukerman performs in a mid-range tenor, and his upbeat songs address topics such as girls/rejection, caffeine dependence, and the never-ending search for good food. He is best known for his bespectacled, unequivocally nerdy demeanor and self-deprecating, "anti-rockstar" demeanor. Aukerman has also performed support vocals for other artists (including Descendents offshoot All), and he briefly fronted the band Milestone in 1988 in San Diego while attending university.
