The Bay Area is a metropolitan area made up of 12 counties and major cities like San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, and Stockton, all located in Northern California, there may be many "bay areas" but the best and only important one is the one im referring to. Its locally known to be only 9 counties but in the bay we spread the love so we include the extra 3 counties. Its population is at 8.5 million and growing insanely fast. You know about the bay because we have some of musics biggest and most talented artists and legendary rappers like Tupac, E-40, Mac Dre, Too Short, Green Day, Third Eye Blind, Grateful Dead, 4 non Blondes, Metallica, and many other rappers. The hyphy movement started here, we invented the word hella ,Yiking and dipping started here, we have the best cannabis available in the entire world LITERALLY, and We have some of the best and worst sports teams in the country.

The richest urban area in the US. Basically, if you're from the Bay you got money. Everyone has nice cars and live In nice houses. Divided into sections:
-Peninsula= San Fran, San Mateo, Daly City, Burlingame, hills borough, etc.. Uber expensive, classy, foggy, urban.
-Marin county= north bay, foggy, coldish, wealthiest county, classy, belvedere is hella rich.

-East bay= Oakland - poor rich gap, gangsters, raiders, rich people in the hills. Berkeley- hella smart and liberal. Richmond-oil refinery. Orinda- rich country club. Walnut creek/concord- suburb. Danville, Alamo, Diablo, blackhawk= uber rich, wealthiest part of California. Mount diablo largest view shed in Western Hemisphere.

-South Bay/Silicon Valley - pretty much every single tech company. Hotter weather,traffic, rich people, tech capital of the world.

In essence, the Bay Area is the center of the tech world, refineries, money, shipping.. It is extremely awesome- 8 million + people all rich and classy. Classiest and richest part of the United States.

Any city that touches the SF Bay. Except Pinole and Rodeo.

Most commonly refers to the cities of Oakland, San Francisco, Richmond, Vallejo and Berkeley.
Livermore, Sacramento, Santa Cruz, Piedmont, etc. NOT BAY AREA..

Formed in early 2011. Originally named Ocean City Lights. Currently working on uprising as a well known band. Danny Martinez (ex guitarist of El Paso local band Assistance To Suicide) along with Rodrigo Vazquez formed Bay Area to show those people if you have a dream to follow it no matter what gets in your way and so Bay Area was brought to life. Were from El Paso fucking texas but Cali and the Bay Area holds a shit load of our past.

Home of the greatest thrash metal to ever exist. Bands like Metallica, Testament, Exodus, Vio-Lence, and Sadus, who played the fastest, most aggressive music known to mankind.
Bay Area Thrash is more metal than your mom.
