The Palpatones were a band formed from three former members of the Max Rebo Band, which split shortly after death of Jabba the Hutt, with whom they had been in an exclusive contract.[1] Their name was a portmanteau on Palpatine and the word "tone". Building a fanbase in the Outer Rim, the band soon became very successful. Their biggest hit was "Kick the Ranat," which made a star of its lead singer, the Rodian Greeata Jendowanian.[2]

Some time after the Battle of Endor, the Palpatones also went their separate ways; Joh Yowza and Greeata continued performing to great success, while Rystáll Sant quit the group after meeting fellow half-Theelin Shug Ninx on Nar Shaddaa.[1]
