Punk/Ska band developed in 1991. Starting with

Tim Armstrong (Vocals/Guitarist)
Matt Freeman (Backing Vocals/Guitarist)
Brett Reed (Drums)
Lars Frederiksen (Bassist/Vocals)

This band is amazing and unless seen and heard in concert. One cannot be truly declared as a Rancid fan. You could have sex with Tim Armstrong...but unless you've heard him live you're not a true fan.

When you hear a Rancid song, you know its Rancid. Especially after hearing Tim Armstrongs voice.
"well, he's back in the hole where they got him living
like a rat but he's smarter than that nine lives
like a cat 15 years old take him to the youth authority home
first thing you learn is that you got to make it
in this world alone " -Time Bomb-

Me:"Hey dude!"
Me:"I've got good news and bad news"
Me:"Rancids going back on tour and their new albums coming out!!"
Mike:"Cool...whats the badnews."
Me:"I used your money for tickets..."
Mike:"How is that bad? We got tickets to Rancid"
Me:"No...Me and Jenny did..."

One of the greatest punk bands of all time. The band consists of Tim Armstrong and Matt Freeman from OPIV, Lars Fredericksen (who later formed Lars Fredericksen and the Bastards) and Brett Reid.
