Can't say that I have any Finnish hardcore but I'll check out that band.
Oh, yeah. See, back in high school I had a dilemma. Should I grow a big red mawhawk like my friend had or grow my hair long. Well, I chose to be more on the metal side and grew my hair long, but I've always liked punk almost as much. When we're talking metal and punk, I'm probably 60% metal and 40% punk. I love all that stuff. Huge Black Flag and Dead Kennedys fan. Some of my favorite bands are GBH, Discharge (great bassist... I love this guy!), Exploited, DRI, COC (early), Bad Brains, Agnostic Front, Cro-Mags, Crumbsuckers... all the NYC hardcore.... Still have my leather jacket with all the pins and patches and a huge Misfits skull painting on the back, although I haven't worn that in 15-20 years.
So, like, you and I would be buddies if we went to high school together.
Husker Du fan? I've been listening to them a lot lately. Not their early hardcore stuff, but their later pop-punk I guess you'd call it.
