Credited as the first band to combine thrash metal with punk rock, The Cro-Mags are associated with the birth of a tougher attitude amid the NY punk rock scene of the late 80s. With roots interwoven with punk Rastafarians Bad Brains, the Cro-Mags were the first hard core band to become affiliated with Hare Krishna, a pacificist philosophy seemingly at odds with their aggressive sound. A flurry of contradictions and explosive energy, the Cro-Mags are an irrevocable legend whose voice demands to be heard. Lose your mind in the pit or pump your fists for the revolution. No one will know the difference but you.
