The Bad Brains shaped the hardcore movement. Without them, the Beastie Boys would have never made it this far.

There a huge influence never get the credit/respect they deserve...they put punk in a new direction when it was going to shit...people talk about that era and mention fucking Blondie before they mention them...

I heard these dudes were recording a new album, and that it's supposed to sound like the older shit.

hope it's good, if that's true.

The Bad Brains are by far the best band EVER. I don't care if HR is crazy and sings into birdcages live, they still rule.

Good band that def never seems to get much credit...are they really planning on coming out with new stuff? Someone on this forum was talking about going to see a show of theirs recently I think. I cant download those songs right now but that was nice of you to up 9th Warrior. I would LOVE to see them perform live. Good thread.

They've been "planning" on coming out with a new record for years. I doubt that it'll happen though. They played two shows a few weeks ago, but with the singer of the Cro-Mags* instead of HR.




*If you don't know them, their first and best record is up for download at http://www.cromags.com/ under the Music section.

Loving this thread...I personally never cared much for Zach D...his vocal style and lyrics are a little limited in my opinion. Dont anyone get on my ass though, he accomplished a lot, it's just my personal feelings. Thanks for the link xHard to EarnX and I had never heard of the Hardstance either. Learn something new everyday. Much love.

On the topic of De la Rocha, that Inside Out 7" is so intense.

^^^yeah my friend got "no spiritual surrender" tattooed on him.

i love the classics like that but mainly all i listen to nowadays is thrash and grind or "powerviolence" like spazz, asshole parade, etc.

You wouldn't happen to post on the B9er, would you?

crass
03-21-2006, 11:08 PM
no i try to stay away from hardcore forums. shit-talking and holier than thou. that's how i remember the B9 from back in the day. is it better now?

B9 signs a bunch of bands that sound the same too although i really like Have Heart and For the Worse

Nah, that's pretty much it. Some hilarious shit goes on over there though.
