Anyone who had a huge weakness for the late '80s/early '90s East Bay punk scene (such as yours truly) will probably dig The Bad Years in a big way.

The young band — most of them are still in high school — has a sound that's heavily inspired by Jawbreaker, early Green Day, Samiam, Pinhead Gunpowder and the like.

They weave in local influences as well, The Big Cats namely. Check out "Nowhere in Sight," for a catchy nugg of buzzsaw pop-punk.
