FLAG OF DEMOCRACY.



A mainstay of the Philly hardcore "scene", they've been consistently churning out a barrage of thrashy 'core since 1982.
Here's my favorite long-player - from way back in 1986 - and it still blows doors off.

Fuckin' A, man.

  4. Immortalized in a Dead Milkmen song... "Let's all go down to the hardcore show and see F.O.D.!!!"

    I saw them in a basement in Philly with Hellnation a few years ago, they were very drunk and played for a long time. But it's amazing that they are (or were) still around.

  7. Well lubes17319, that is a greta photo, and I hope you don't mind that I used it / tweaked it.
    They are an amazing band that to this day gets little credit in the overall history of hardcore on a national level.
    Thanks for the kind words...
