Anyone here a fan?

I ****ing love the records, but they're absolute shite live.

why do they suck live?
I love all forms of Rock 'n' Roll, past and NOT present

Because their drummer plays shitty US D beat style drums, the guitar player think's he's johnny thunders but uses a shitty nu metal amp setting through a ****ed cabinet.

It's basically the goodness of the subs, drowned out by hi gain distorted noise with shit drums.

Which means that you can't hear the harmonica, bass or vocals, which are all rather stellar.

Plus the support band was a shitty indie band with a guy dancing around with a giant eye on his head.

i got one cd, a.w.o.l. and i thought it was purty good. i want to get more albums, but never get around to it. i was gonna see then with the adicts and misfits, but it was at riot fest, which sucks; plus im pretty sure the three of them ended up not going at the end. sounds like they can change how they sound live though... i love the song self-destruct, though it kind of sounds like a bunch of guitar riffs the guitarist liked and just threw them together, but it is catchy...

Rancid are the best punk band ever.

Tim Armstrong is a songwriting genius, is a complete fashion diva and has an incredible singing voice.

He doesn't sound like Opie from family guy at all.

I only have some greatest hits collection (Original Punks Original Hits), and judging by that I think they're pretty good. Maybe not on my top 5 list (though I don't really even have one), but I do enjoy listening to them. Never seen 'em live though.

One of the people in the crowd on the cover of OPHP looks like the Samwise dude from Lord of the Rings.. Sean Astin? It looks exactly like him, it's kinda freaky.

i saw them live in connecticut with the misfits, addicts etc. I though they were better live than on record. I got quintissentials and riot double set. They are an under appreciated punk band.

i own their album "brand new age", but i didn't really dig it. i havn't listened to them in a while though, maybe i'll listen to that cd again to see if my opinions changed.
