Rancid - Bay Area punk for the ages

I have been listening to Rancid since the early nineties and there has yet to be a bad album. The latest is just another chapter in their catchy punk catalog to keep you humming all day. Its got the hooks, the great story lines and true character, for which these guys are known. Glad I was able to get to know the back stories on quite a few of their songs after living in the Bay Area for years and them being friends of friends. Hells yeah, a band for the ages and one in which the songs still resonate with me today as they did way back in 1993 when I first listened to them.
