The music that the band started playing in 1994 is a mix of soul, Motown, R&B and classic rock, The Detroit Cobras play other people’s music, but more specifically they cover other artists’ B-sides and deep cuts, and they do so with such a raw and ferocious energy that the songs rarely sound anything like the original versions, but all of them end up sounding like Cobra songs.

The group, which, except for Rachel Nagy and Mary Ramirez notoriously changes its lineup. The first edition of the Detroit Cobras featured Rachel Nagy on vocals, Jeff Shaw and Mary Ramirez on guitars, Jeff Meier on bass, and Vic Hill on drums They released their first 7" in 1996.
