A California band that could be described as progressive ska, or post-hardcore ska. They are a heavily reggae-influenced band with some hardcore-ish use of chords and delicate, forceful riffs. Their lyrics range from political and social issues to emotional and relational issues.
They started out sounding alot like Sublime, Reel Big Fish, or No Doubt, but have expanded their sound to a truly psychedelic blend of stirred awesome, listing influences like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Miles Davis, Bad Brains and Fugazi.
They rock, they jam, they think, they sing, they can PLAY.

The RX Bandits are a very good band. They are so thoughtful and musically sophisticated, yet also pleasant to listen to, and good to rock out to.
