For decades, punk rock has been a way for countless people to cope with the world they live in. The music takes us to our favorite place in the back of our minds where we can be enraged, smile, laugh or cry. Bands like the Damned, Sex Pistols, Ramones, Social Distortion and X have been on the frontline of our punk rock soundtracks of life. There is one other band that is part of the pantheon of coolness, that band is The Adicts.
After 40 years and counting, The Adicts remain one of the most successful and influential punk bands of all time. Pumping out a high-velocity signature sound, with over-the-top live performances and catchy hooks; the band is more popular than ever. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. There are a ton of bands that try to imitate them, yet people still line up to see the real deal.
