First wave punk rockers everywhere are alive and kicking. Just look at the Angry Samoans, hailing from Los Angeles, they've been doing their thing since the late 70s. And since their inception, they've made a career out of being offensive. Rumor has it their song "Get Off the Air," was a direct jibe at legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer who reportedly used his influence to blacklist the band around the Hollywood scene in the early 80s. Though their original members currently only include singer Mike Saunders and drummer Bill Vockeroth, they continue to delight with their full throttle punk sound.
