Fucked Up formed in Toronto in 2002, high-school friends influenced by first- and second-wave hardcore bands like Minor Threat and NOFX. It was instantly apparent that they were not carbon-copy punks. Known by bizarre aliases, Fucked Up employ creative methods of spreading information & misinformation. Basic facts are constantly in flux. It is unclear how many of their 7"s have actually been released. Rumors about Fucked Up circulate like wildfire among their obsessive fans. The bottom line is that this band could only come out of hardcore, but they are now making music like no hardcore band in history. Though Fucked Up remain punks at heart - if quixotically diverse ones - they continue to create great, weird, heavy records that stubbornly stick in your brain and your heart.
