Ask any self-respecting punk rock fan to list his or her top 10 punk bands, and Bad Brains
will almost certainly be toward the top. These hardcore punk rock pioneers began playing together as a jazz band with a rough edge and a hint of reggae way back in 1975.
Two years later, their sound got a little less jazzy and a whole lot
more punk without losing the musical complexity that eludes so many
punk bands. This change in sound quickly garnered the band a rabid cult
following which continues to this day.
Bad Brains plays City Limits
