History
WELL, IT DIDNT START RIGHT AWAY AS ONE SINGLE IDEA, IT WAS SLOWLY PLANNED OUT SINCE MIDDLE SCHOOL. WE WERE ALL INTO MUSIC AS AN INDIVIDUAL, BUT WE WERENT VERY SERIOUS ABOUT A BAND. AT THE TIME, I WAS VERY INFLUENCED BY SKA AND PUNK, WHILE MELVIN WASNT REALLY INTO IT YET. FINALLY, WE LEFT MIDDLE SCHOOL, AND CAME TO BANNING HIGH, WHERE WE MET MANUEL. DURING THAT TIME MELVIN WAS GROWING ON PUNK AND THE THOUGHTS OF A BAND GREW AS WELL. WE LOVED PUNK AND SKA SO MUCH, WE WANTED TO LEARN SOME OURSELVES. SO LATER THAT SEMESTER WE DECIDED TO FORM THE BAND WITH 3 PEOPLE IN MIND: ME, MELVIN, AND EDDIE. BUT WITH CERTAIN "DIFFICULTIES" EDDIED COULD NOT JOIN AS THE BASS PLAYER. THEN MANUEL WAS CHOSEN AS DRUMMER DUE TO DEFAULT. THAT SUMMER I GOT A GUITAR AND MELVIN LATER GOT HIS BASS. MANUEL GOT HIS DRUMS IN THE FALL. AND SO THE BAND WAS FORMED. AFTER A LONG DECISION, THE NAME DEFIED WAS PICKED. AND OUR FIRST SONG WAS CREATED. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TIMMY" WAS WRITTEN OVER NIGHT AND CRAPPILY. WE PRETTY MUCH PULLED RHYMING WORDS OUT OF OUR ASSES (NOT LITERALLY) AND PUT IT ON PAPER. THEN "ONE" WAS WRITTEN. THEN BRIAN CAME INTO THE BAND AS THE LEAD SINGER AND COMPLETED THE BAND. WE ARE STILL CONSTANTLY MAKING NEW SONGS, SO WATCH OUT! BUT WE'LL NEVER FORGET WHY WE STARTED IN THE FIRST PLACE... CUZ WE WERE BORED AND NOTHING BETTER TO DO BUT ANNOY PEOPLE WITH OUR HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE MUSIC...
