Saccharine Trust is a post-hardcore band from California that was started in 1980 by singer Jack Brewer and guitarist Joe Baiza.

The band would frequently perform with SST labelmates Minutemen and Black Flag. Drummer Rob Holzman appeared on their 1981 debut Paganicons but left the band to play in Slovenly, replaced by drummer Tony Cicero. After a ten-year hiatus, the band re-formed and began performing around the West Coast.

In his journals, Kurt Cobain considered Paganicons to be one of his Top 50 favorite albums.[1] Buzz Osborne of The Melvins stated in the book Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge that they were hugely influential in terms of atmosphere. Sonic Youth covered their song "I Am Right" on the SST compilation The Melting Plot.
