Homage: a Tribute to the Descendents
The Descendents is one of the earliest hardcore bandsd from L.A. They have carved a niche in the hardcore history by writing “love songs” while everyone else are pissed with “everything around them.” Don’t get me wrong, they are one of the meanest, tightest groups ever, but they are not afraid to write and sing songs about girls, which was kind of considered taboo back in the day. Another band that comes to mind when it comes to not being afraid not to conform is Redd Kross. They did a cover of God Thunder while playing in CBGB’s with Circle Jerks & DOA (I think).
