Ten Yard Fight (For fans of Youth of Today, Gorilla Biscuits, Give Up The Ghost)

Youth crew hardcore was dead in the 1990s, killed by bands such as Blood for Blood and Hatebreed touting the metalcore flag. While I hate the idea of crews (frats for hardcore kids), the music is as pure as hardcore gets.

Little did Ten Yard Fight know what they were about to help resurrect: a bunch of Boston kids playing tongue in cheek hardcore in the veins of Gorilla Biscuits and Youth of Today, but with more melodies.

Besides being named after a kickass Nintendo game: Ten Yard Fight brought back the energy and fast paced hardcore for a whole new generation, helping shape the sound that bands such as Bane and Give Up the Ghost embrace (actually, Wes, the lead singer of GUTG was a roadie for Ten Yard Fight). Definitely worth checking out for any fan of hardcore.
