Best of Bay Area Hardcore

It's hard to define the Bay Area hardcore sound, but that's only because the scene has always celebrated individuality. On this playlist, you'll find crushingly slow noise from Flipper, sarcastic political rants by Dead Kennedys, and melodic anthems courtesy of Jawbreaker. From do-it-yourself icons to crossover heroes, these San Francisco acts have been putting their own spin on punk for decades.
