    I was into metal before punk burst on the scenes in the late 70s. Living in a town that had a huge punk scene, got me involved with that music too.

    Here are some of my homies doing what they do best.

    #6 2 years ago

    I like old school metal and a little punk. Don't keep up much w/the newer stuff. I'm old school and stuck in the past. Todays music scene pales to what it once was. I miss going to shows and collecting things. Saw Megadeth in November of '86 at the Metroplex in Atlanta. What a great time. Met Dave and he was cool. Hallows Eve opened. My fave show ever..........

    #7 2 years ago

    I just went to see Megadeth/Amon Amarth/Suicidal Tendencies/Metal Church/Butcher Babies last week at Mohegan Sun casino. I have always been a huge ST fan so after their set the band came out to the lobby and posed for photos and autographed stuff. I met Mike Muir and he signed my jersey which was awesome. Even better, my wife who is not a fan was blown away by the live set and now wants to see them play a full show. Makes my heart happy!

    LUCKY Mike Muir is the BEST! So jealous, man. So glad Dave hopped on drums for them

    SD live in your neighborhood, man?? Haha that's insane!

    #14 2 years ago

    It's all about the riffs man, count me in!

    It's all kick-ass rock and roll, something for every mood and enough musical diversity to keep one interested for life, and there's lots of overlap anyway. For example Bad Religion, NOFX, Pennywise, Minor Threat, S.O.D., Anthrax, Motorhead, Venom, Black Flag are all in the same immediate musical family (or if you prefer a more old school household, Stooges, Blue Oyster Cult, NY Dolls, Motorhead, Damned, Ramones, Sir Lord Baltimore, Dead Boys, etc.).

    If you want to talk heavy music in general, I think everyone who likes this stuff should also have some Ellington Big Band, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Igor Stravinski, and Dimitri Shostakovich in the collection!

    Went to the same line up here in Denver about 3 weeks ago. Megadeth is my favorite heavy metal band of all time, ST was also great and I also met Mike Muir hanging out between sets. Cool guy! Heavy metal rulzss!!

    Not really that hard to do, actually! Regardless of the gossip about Dave being "difficult", he has always been fan-friendly. I met and chatted with him and Marty Friedman when they were touring for "Rust.." and they couldn't have been nicer to this dorky star-struck 18 year-old!

    Not any more. But we are all the same age and grew up together. I helped set up their first gig when members of the Adolescents were still in SD. They played a song called Amoeba that night.

    Once the Adolescents recorded Amoeba, it got quite a bit of radio play and put Fullerton on the map as a punk hotspot. DI and Agent Orange among a few others also hail from this area.

    #18 2 years ago

    Amoeba

    #19 2 years ago

    Count me in. Not as hardcore anymore, but grew up with punk and metal mostly in the 90's. DK, Circle jerks, DI, DRI, Black Flag, etc...

    I was in a punk band for about 6 years in the late 90's / early 2000's; we got to open for the likes of D.R.I & D.I (separate shows); hungout drinking and smoking afterwards for hours. Good times!

    We did some travelling up to Caneda (Vancouver) too, the crowd up there was so welcoming, pleasing, and just awesome people. Don't miss it too much, but love the memories.

    Today, i mostly listen to Faction type music (SiriusXM); Metallica, Tool, pennywise, acdc, megadeth, DK, marley. I love most all music I need to get my 4 year old into music, he loves dancing & singing and when i bust out my BASS guitar he's like, 'dad, can i rock n roll too!?!'

    Did you hang with Casey Royer? He was always a fun loving guy.

    Casey's an old friend that lived up the hill from me. Great guy. He was the original drummer for Social D and then the Adolescents. Most of those guys moved down to the beach. Can't blame them as I did too for a long time before moving back. Nobody's left around here it seems.

    Dude that's awesome!

    Every poster in this thread is awesome. More importantly: anybody read Harley from the Cro-Mags book yet? It's BANANAS.

    #28 2 years ago

    I grew up in the punk scene and dabble in metal. I published one of the bigger punk zines in the 90s and released a couple of NW punk compilation CDs. Punk and pinball have always gone hand in hand for me. I'm mostly into early Aussie, UK and LA punk, Killed By Death stuff, garage punk, local bands and some pop punk stuff before it became to formula (Descendants, Screeching Weasel, early NOFX, Sicko). I don't go to near as many shows as I used to, I've probably gone to over 1,000 shows, but I often hit the big Punk Rock Bowling festival in Vegas.

    #29 2 years ago

    Suicidal Tendencies w Madball tomorrow night then Skeletonwitch on Sun. Mon I'll be crippled but smiling. Horns.

    #30 2 years ago

    Lifelong fan of both but primarily punk.
    Saw my first all ages show back in 1986 when I was 14.
    It was GBH ,the Exploited and another band I wish I could remember at The Flood Zone in Richmond Va.
    We were pretty close to the DC scene that was thriving with Minor Threat etc so it was easily accessible .
    As I age I lean a bit more towards the melodic poppy side like Decendants,Dag Nasty or even some newer progressive metal stuff like Coheed and Cambria but every now and then I like to go right back to where I was then.
    Accidently rediscovered some Gang Green on apple music the other day and felt just like I was 14 all over again.Things like that that really take me back.It isnt what you remember it is what you forgot that does it.
    I still wear my Misfits helmet when I ride my bike or skate.

    I grew up in New Hampshire in the 80s-90s and went to a lot of shows in NH and Boston the bruisers, cro-mags, agnostic front, Madball, blood for blood, the queers,honkey ball, hatebreed Bostones, sam black church, and scissor fight is a shortlist of bands I saw a lot. So mostly a bunch of Boston and NY hardcore. Oh yeah and a bunch of SLAYER!!!!

    No, hahaha and thankfully they have always been cool to me at shows they've been at I knew a few of them so that helped a bit but I will say I've seen some crazy shit at shows when they showed up back then

    #36 2 years ago

    East coast hardcore is not to be fucked with. Much respect.

    #37 2 years ago

    I always loved old punk but lean even more toward Ska. Doesn't match with the heaviest stuff but we all like what we like. Just went to see the Selecter & the Specials last month. Usually now I just fit as much "show" as I can in to Riot Fest. It's usually as good as I can do with my 4 kids & their activities. It's not the same as the old shows, but it allows me to bring & expose my 2 older ones to some of the stuff my wife & I grew up with. We go annually & other activities have to take a break that weekend. I call it an educational weekend.

    Speaking of punks and metal heads united, here's a "promo" shot from my first band circa 1989. I'm in the sweet Youth of Today shirt.

    #43 2 years ago

    Ha ha ha, that's awesome!

    #44 2 years ago

    I'm actually voting for the coat, with enclosed pic.

    #45 2 years ago

    If the punks are united, they will never be divided.

    #47 2 years ago

    I saw the Casualties a few times, but lots of allegations have come out about the singer with underage girls that make me totally not want to listen them anymore.

    This is easily in my top 10 punk albums of all time:

    #48 2 years ago

    ???
    Say what ?
    Say it ain't so man that's one of my favorite 90's bands.

    #49 2 years ago

    Here's a quick clip I filmed when I went up to see my friends the bruisers play their reunion show downstairs at the Middle East in Cambridge MA this past Memorial Day weekend. The show was awesome and brought so many of us that were there at the 90s bruisers shows back together again. Hopefully they make it an annual thing if Al can get a break from singing for Dropkick Murphys.

    I live in manchester and have a season ticket for manchester city, I missed the first game of this season to go over to the hell hole that is leeds to see adolescents. They were due on at 23:00 , at 22:45 we get told they ain't showing up, here's a couple of quid back. Adolescents can suck it.
