To me, I usually put the old punk and hardcore bands from this area into the same category. Bad Religion, Circle One, TSOL, Adolescents, D.I., Dickies, Dr Know, Black Flag, Red Cross, Circle Jerks, Decry, The Grim, Fear, Battalion of Saints, Agent Orange and so many more awesome bands from the area. It's difficult not to be a fan of a few of those bands and listen to punk.
