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.
