BAD BRAINS picture
Bad Brains are a punk/hardcore/rock band that formed in 1977 in the Washington, D.C. area. Prior to that, they performed under the name Mind Power as a jazz fusion group.

The early Bad Brains sound mixed hardcore punk with hints of reggae. On later releases, beginning with 1986's I Against I, they began to incorporate some elements of heavy metal.

The band briefly performed under the name Soul Brains when their original lineup reunited in 1998, but have since released any new material under the familiar Bad Brains name.
