Broward-Palm Beach Counties' 11 Best Punk Bands of All Time
4. The Beltones
There's something infinitely sad about a Beltones' song, is it the whiskey-soured vocals of Bill McFadden or the skid row poetry that always propelled them beyond the Stiff Little Fingers comparisons? One of the more underappreciated gems to come out of Florida in the '90s.
TKO Records recently got their heads out of their asses and have released their debut LP On Deaf Ears (the CD being catalog number 18) on vinyl, 16 years after the fact. However, the limited edition splatter version sort of justifies the time lapse. Sort of.
3. New Found Glory
New Found Glory, love them or hate them, broke out of South Florida, and for the last 17 years have been at it with their brand of punk rock most will liken to the shopping mall crowd.
Whatever your take is on them, they're a known Florida band which is sometimes rare for those who deserve the accolade more. Their recent woes with guitarist Steve Klein's accusations of pederasty have marred the band's image significantly with plenty of vitriol hurled at them and Klein.
