Together in and off and on manner (several hiatus’s over their career) for 40 years now, punk rock veterans Descendents have left a mark on their musical genre. A major band in the hardcore punk world and especially in their native Los Angeles. Their music has influenced bands like The Offspring, Blink 182, Green Day, and The All-American Rejects. During the 1980s they influenced newer punk sub genres like pop punk and skate punk.
As they began their career in 1977 all their song were just short bursts of energy lasting around a minute. Now their songs are more traditional two to three minute punk ditties. Lyrically they cover such varying topics as love, relationships, farting, and sociopolitical commentary.
The band has released seven studio albums, three live albums and three EPs. Milo Goes to College is probably their best album and their latest album, released in 2016, was Hypercaffium Spazzinate.
