|1.||California Crust Punk|
One of the most unique scenes within the genre, California Crust Punk can be interpreted as a wave of crusty punk/metal/grind bands during the late 80's and early to mid-90's that played an important (albeit sometimes uncredited) role in shaping the sound of modern crust. Early bands included Apocalypse, A//Solution, Carcinogen, Phobia, Plutocracy, Glycine Max, Neurosis, Mindrot, Confrontation, Dystopia, etc. Many of these bands hailed from southern California and/or the Bay Area and tended to blur the lines between the various strains of hardcore punk and extreme metal to create distinctly unique sounds within the scene at the time. Some notable bands that came later in the scene's history include Noothgrush, Skaven, Enewetak, Unruh, El Dopa, Dead America, Despise You, Gasp, Suffering Luna and many more that are most likely buried by time and dust. Although some of these bands can't be defined as crust in the strictest sense of the term, they each had ties and sympathies towards crust punk in some way, whether it was in sound or ethos. The scene more or less dissolved completely by the early/mid-2000's, but it's influence can still be heard in the sonic tapestries of many punk and metal bands around the world. The Oakland region of the Bay Area has continued to play host to many notable "crusty" bands such as Stormcrow, (later) Graves at Sea, Badr Vogu, Brainoil, Embers, Cruevo, etc.more...

Wanna know what what a true rebel/non-conformist is? It isn't someone who rags on other cliques or openly does something stupid or rude to others. It isn't someone who follows some popular choice of style. It isn't someone who does drugs or drink. And it DEFINETELY isn't one of those stereotypes from old fifties movies! It's someone who can hardly stand out at all because they're lost in the sea of cliques. You simply cannot classify a rebel in any clique, because they follow their own dress code putting on and picking out what they think is cool and not wearing something because it seems punk or preppy. A rebel doesn't do something because it's hot for the moment or because it seems hardcore or something a rebel would wear. As a matter of fact, most rebels don't even know they are rebels. They befriend whoever they like, listen to whatever they want to listen to, and behave in the manner they see fit. These people live their lives the way they want to and not the way everyone expects them to. They can be punk one day, preppy the next, and hip hop by the end of the week but they never conform to one thing (unless they just really like it). In short, a rebel/non-conformist lives life the way they see fit without caring how others see them and what others think. Think you're a rebel? Check out your wardrope, your style of music, your friends and ask yourself, " Do I really like this because I think it's cool or because others think it suits me?" "Do I really like this person...more...
A car for a punk.
The Drive-In was a sea of polychrome punkmobiles. Pintos and Gremlins predominated amongst the lavish. poor children making do with battered Tauruses and old Soccer Mom Minis..

Mouth really opened up the Tasmanian punk scene to LGBTI bands.
Quite possibly the greatest and most influential band ever. Their existence more or less led to punk. After their first albulm, Pet Sounds (Which is probably their best), they went with more of a surf rock sounds, but remained awesome for a long time.
Tool - "Broheim, did you hear the new Chumbawumba albulm?"
God - "No, they stopped being good after they started trying to suck"
Tool - "That's cool, did you hear about this new band, the Beach Boys?"
God - "No, are they any good?"
Tool - "They're pretty gnarly bro, I just wish they had more than one albulm out."
God - "They have several, and the new one isn't that good, however everything they did was beyond amazing. So you can go jerk off to the new Bjork albulm, you powertool."
Tool - "What's a powertool?"
A rock opera by The Who. It tells the story of a Mod named Jimmy and all of his misadventures. Like other Mods, Jimmy kept his hair short, wore nice clothes, rode a motor scooter, and took uppers.
Jimmy struggles with his job and homelife. He sees The Who in concert, later takes a train back to the site of a Mod vs. Rocker brawl, and discovers a shocking secret about one of his Mod idols.
Jimmy has four different personalities, hence Quadrophenia. Each is based on a member of The Who. He is a tough guy and a helpless dancer (singer Roger Daltrey), a romantic (bassist John Entwistle), a bloody lunatic (drummer Keith Moon), and a beggar and a hypocrit (guitarist Pete Townshend).
The Punk and the Godfather is an interesting track. At the beginning, Townshend can be described as the edgy Punk. However at the end, he seems to assume the role of the Godfather.
Can you see the real me?
