Welcome to the Rancid Wiki!
Rancid is an American punk rock band formed in Berkeley, California, in 1991. Founded by 80s punk veterans Tim Armstrong and Matt Freeman, who previously played in the highly influential ska punk band Operation Ivy, Rancid is credited—along with Green Day, The Offspring, NOFX, and Social Distortion—for reviving mainstream interest in punk rock in the United States during the mid-1990s.
They release one 7" single "Radio, Radio, Radio" on Fat Wreck Chords on August 26, 1993. NOFX cover the title track on the BYO NOFX/Rancid Split album and continue to perform this song in their live shows.
Rancid also appeared on the 2004 CD compilation "Rock Against Bush Vol. 2"
