Gang Green are an essential, Budweiser-spraying part of American hardcore's Boston wing. They contributed seven tracks of sloppy splatter to the definitive 1982 comp This Is Boston, Not L.A. and slowly evolved into the ultimate skate-punk band, mixing the heavier parts of punk, the snottier parts of thrash metal, and the happiest parts of beer. Locals Cerebral Ballzy keep the spirit of '82 alive. With World War IX.
