Classic Southern California Hardcore: RIYL Underappreciated Punk, Questionable Life Choices, Loving/Hating Ronald Reagan

If there are two things that The Kids find cool these days, it’s old music and being (or at least advertising yourself as) a fuck-up/outcast. For example, nobody is debating the musical merits of Madball or Terror (who are both … Continue reading

Do you remember OG MOSHCORE?

One thing we all have in common here at SYWH is we are all bonded by the breakdown. Whether it’s deathcore, easycore or old school tumblrcore, we love music that brings the mosh. This has lead me to be curious … Continue reading
