Refused Make U.S. TV Debut
Refused, the seminal 90s post-hardcore band that finally reformed in January this year, made their US television debut on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night. The result was a screen-smashing showcase of how to rock, as you can see in the players below. Refused split in 1998 after finally hitting it big with their third album "The Shape Of Punk To Come". It became a template for modern hardcore, with dozens of acts citing them as an influence over the following decade. They promised to never reform, but in January announced a series of festival performances and are currently touring to make up for lost time, as the band explained in their reunion statement: "We never did "The Shape Of Punk To Come" justice back when it came out; too tangled up in petty internal bickering to really focus on the job," they wrote in January. "Suddenly there's this possibility to do it like it was intended. We wanna do it over, do it right. For the people who've kept the music alive through the years, but also for our own sakes. We feel that you deserve it and we hope the feeling is mutual." Here's a performance of their best-known (and most frequently ripped-off) song "New Noise":
