A style of Punk music based in the southeast United States including but not limited to Chattanooga, TN; Asheville, NC; Huntsville, AL; Miami and parts of north Florida; Dalton, GA; and areas of Mississippi, Kentucky, Arkansas, and Virginia. It is characteristically tough, melodic, and catchy, but based more on geography and community than a particular sound.
Future Virgins, Rice Harvester, The Grumpies, Forced Vengeance, Twat Sauce, and Queerwulf are just a few examples of bands based in the southeast US who create the uniquely raw, emotive and melodic style of DIY Punk Rock known as Region Rock.
