Capitalist Casualties: Learn to headbang to powerviolence.
Way back in 1987, when the members of Capitalist Casualties -- one of California's most revered first-wave powerviolence crews -- were coming up with a name for their band, what do you think was the inspiration?

Are they talking about victims of capitalism? Or is the moniker a reference to capitalists that have become casualties themselves, ostensibly at the hands of torch-wielding crust punks bent on starting a class-war Moshpocalypse?

Well, this February, Miami's punk/metal/hardcore promotion powerhouse, Speedfreek, is giving us the opportunity to clear up the rhetorical incertitude once and for all.

And while the Casualties (no, not those Casualties) are certainly the brutal-shred-destructo guests of honor, they're just one of many groups playing this 20-band mini-festravaganza.

What might a literal Assholeparade look like? And if meteorologists are reporting a high chance of a Shitstorm, does that hurt or help the festivities? At what point in your life do you have to take a good, long, hard look in the mirror and declare, "I'm an Intestine"?

To our ear, it sounds like hardcore may very well rival its close, less-smelly cousin -- metal -- in its ability to produce ridiculously awesome (and awesomely ridiculous) band names.

We're just waiting for someone to start a band called Moshpocalypse.
