Formed: San Francisco, California, USA

Attitude Adjustment

Thrash/hardcore of the common or garden variety.

Their first singer Kevin Reed was replaced by Andy Andersen after a few gigs, and Chris Scapparo joined as second guitarist just in time for their Dead Serious Demo. American Paranoia marked their arrival as a biggish force on the "crossover" scene, but soon after they mutated into Condemned Attitude when Andersen, Scapparo and Strahl joined forced with ex-Condemned to Death guitarist Keith Chatham.

After this the group called itself Attitude for a while, releasing three singles as such, before going back to the Attitude Adjustment name for more records. They're probably still going.
