Rancid
Rancid
Rancid were formed in 1991 in Berkeley, California, by Matt Freeman and Tim Armstrong, both of whom were former members of Operation Ivy and Downfall (6).
Rancid includes Armstrong on guitar and vocals, Freeman on bass and vocals, Brett Reed on drums and Lars Frederiksen on guitar and vocals. Reed left the band in 2006 and was replaced by Branden Steineckert, former drummer of The Used. As of November 2006, Armstrong and Freeman have been permanent members of the band and Frederiksen did not join Rancid until 1993 after the band was searching for a second guitar player.
They are credited, along with fellow California bands The Offspring and Green Day, with reviving mainstream popular interest in punk rock in the United States during the mid 1990s and having recorded on Fat Wreck Chords and Epitaph Records (among others), have played a major role in the re-invention of ‘traditional’ punk values in a modern punk scene dominated by pop, metal and emo sensibilities.
Rancid's style often draws comparison with The Clash in their albums ...And Out Come The Wolves and Life Won't Wait, the latter of which is sometimes referred to as "Rancid's Sandinista!". This influence is further emphasized by direct homages to the seminal punk rock group in the lyrics to several of Rancid's songs, such as the title track to Indestructible.
Pennywise
Pennywise
Pennywise have made a name for themselves over the past 28 years as a politically minded, melodic hardcore band that has sold millions of albums and become one of the most successful independent acts of all time. Formed in 1988, the band played backyard parties in their hometown of Hermosa Beach, California, without having any aspirations other than playing as many songs as they could before the police showed up. Hermosa Beach and the surrounding neighborhoods are a prominent place in popular culture, with groups like Black Flag, The Circle Jerks and Descendants merging a fast rebellious sound with the surrounding aggressive surf and skate culture. Inspired by their predecessors, Pennywise were at the forefront of a second wave of American punk rock that would catapult the movement from a tight-knit subculture into a worldwide movement.

Through constant touring and rousing live shows, the band built a massive and dedicated following with revered classics like the incendiary "F*ck Authority," their powerful anthem of discontent "Alien" and the stirring ode to fallen friends "Bro Hymn," - an autobiographical song which pays tribute to the band's founding bass player Jason Thirsk after his tragic and untimely death in 1996. Pennywise have released an impressive collection of eleven albums in the span of their 28 years as a band, including: Pennywise (1991), Unknown Road (1993), Full Circle (1997), Straight Ahead (1999), Land of the Free? (2001), From the Ashes (2003), The Fuse (2005), Reason to Believe (2008), All or Nothing (2012), and most recently Yesterdays (2014).

Their 1995 classic album About Time brought Pennywise to mainstream acknowledgement with tracks "Same Old Story," "Perfect People," and "Every Single Day" hitting international airwaves. For their fall 2016 tour, Pennywise will celebrate About Time by performing the album in it's entirety along with other classic Pennywise favorites.

Suicidal Tendencies
Suicidal Tendencies
Suicidal Tendencies is an US-based hardcore punk and metal band. The band was formed in 1981 in Venice, CA by vocalist Mike Muir. Since the band's inception, Muir has been the group's only constant member, although rhythm guitarist Mike Clark was with the group from 1988 until 2013. The group started off as hardcore punk act and their 1983 self-titled debut scored an unexpected hit with the song "Institutionalized", whose video got heavy airplay on MTV. In 1984, citing concerns about crowd violence, the group was banned from performing live in the city of Los Angeles. The ban remained in effect until the early 1990s. By the end of the 1980s, the band had evolved into a full-fledged thrash metal band and would soon begin adding more funk influences into their music. In 1995, the group announced their split, marking the end to their most commercially successful period. Mike Muir and Mike Clark would resurrect the band in 1996 with new members and the group continues to this day, although their recorded output has been sparse since reuniting.

Throughout Suicidal's career, Muir has fronted a number of side-projects like Los Cycos, No Mercy (3), Infectious Grooves, and his own solo act, Cyco Miko. These acts have usually featured other members of Suicidal, as well.
The English Beat
The English Beat
One of the most popular and influential ska groups, The English Beat, rushed on to the music scene in 1979. With Dave Wakeling on vocals and guitar, a string of hit singles followed, including "Mirror in the Bathroom", "Save it for Later", and "I Confess". The English Beat play the hits of The Beat and of their side project, General Public.
