Fucked Up | Artist
Fucked Up is a Canadian hardcore Indie/Punk band formed 2001 in Toronto, Ontario by Mike Haliechuk (guitar, bass, drums, organ, piano, tambourine, mandolin, mellophone, Mellotron), Josh Zucker (guitar, organ, piano, Mellotron), Sandy Miranda (bass, drums, marimba), Jonah Falco (drums, guitar, bass, organ, piano, strings), Ben Cook (guitar, drums) and Chris Colohan (vocals). Damian Abraham replaced Colohan as vocalist in 2002. The band's music tends to polarise listeners. Many can't "get into" the music at all, while others regard them as the best hardcore punk band for decades. Lyrically, religion is one of their central issues, and their scathing indictment of it is done intelligently and with an aggressive style similar to Henry Rollins. The band won the 2009 Polaris Music Prize for the album The Chemistry of Common Life. Other standout albums include Hidden World, David Comes to Life and Dose Your Dreams. Their 2016 film soundtrack Zanzibar is also recommended, as is the 2010 compilation Couple Tracks: Singles 2002-2009. Fucked Up has collaborated extensively with other artists on record and during live performances. On February 8, 2009 while playing at San Francisco's The Independent, the band was joined on stage by former Dead Kennedys singer Jello Biafra for a cover of the Ramones' "Blitzkrieg Bop".
