4 Skins

As their name suggests, this London, England band comprised four skinheads, who specialized in vitriolic three-chord ‘yob-rock’. Their membership was fluid, including no less than four lead singers, with only Hoxton Tom (bass) still resident between their first and second albums. Taking their musical brief from outfits such as Sham 69, the Angelic Upstarts and the Cockney Rejects, they were a third generation punk band heavily associated with the Oi! Movement, alongside fellow travellers the Business. With a blatantly patriotic image, the band attracted National Front supporters to their live shows, which occasionally erupted into full-scale riots. Lyrically they expounded on racism, police brutality and corrupt governments. However, musically they were not so adventurous, being rigidly formularized and unable to develop from their simplistic origins (basic punk spiced by the odd foray into skinhead’s ‘other’ music, ska). From a creative standpoint, the band had ground to a halt by 1983. Their fanbase continued to contract and they soon faded into oblivion, although re-releases and compilations have reminded many of their enduring street popularity.

Nothing wrong with being white and proud I am. No sense in leaving racist comments all it does is draw unnecessary attention complaints n red flags eventually causing good stations and bands being removed. Hitler lives in our hearts not on Pandora comments. If you are listening to the station you obviously know what's up. Skins are warriors not keyboard warriors. Hail Victory

The Prince of Darkness the mystery was GONE. Anyway,NU Skool Punxand Generation Y (why) rockers.Take some advise from those of us who were there and those of us who were not necessarily un bias but heard it all (or as much as they Fuckn' could) AND just because you don't know who the original line up or who quit 'The Gaylords' in December of 78' and started playing W/ The Fuktards in 79' does not make you any less PUNK.again. . FIGHT FOR WHAT YOU LOVE NOT FOR WHAT YOU HATE.

If you think Nirvana and Kurt Cobain are thieves you're completes idiots. They idolized the Vaselines and did covers of "jesus don't want me for a sunbeam" and "Molly's lips". Before you falsely accuse people get your facts straight cause you just look like complete stupid a** wipes

WTF!! I agree with waspden73.. Cobain was NOT a thief O.o
