Mad Parade - Los Angeles, California, USA

Formed: Los Angeles, California, USA

Exceptionally melodic hardcore punk band which has been active (on and off) since 1982 and has played an unrecognised role in the development of pop-punk. They split up after 1987's A Thousand Words, but reformed in the early '90s and have released numerous albums and singles since. Re-Issues (a compilation of the first two LPs and first two singles) and Real Horror Show (1982-1983 Demos) are essential listening.
