Biography

There are at least five artists with this name:

1. Tragedy is a crust punk band, originally from Memphis, Tennessee, but currently residing in Portland, Oregon. The band formed in 1999 and was born from the ashes of influential modern bands His Hero Is Gone and Deathreat.
Tragedy’s music is characterized by its unrelenting, heavy hardcore punk sound, often punctuated by melodic interludes and downshifts in tempo. The band remains strongly aware of its roots but often takes the genre in newer, more innovative directions, pioneering a new breed of hardcore punk along with close friends and contemporaries From Ashes Rise, as well other bands residing in Portland and throughout the world. (See: Severed Head of State and Remains of the Day)
Though most of these bands maintain a progressive attitude as to the nature of their sound (Remains of the Day actually includes a violinist among its members), there is a staunch refusal to separate themselves categorically from their hardcore punk provenances. Tragedy draw from many various early hardcore punk bands as influences, most prominently in the vein of d-beat, ranging from Discharge themselves to Japanese d-beat groups such as Deathside.
Tragedy’s first and subsequent albums have met with critical acclaim within the DIY hardcore community, and many see the band as at the forefront of a modern hardcore renaissance of sorts.

    Observations: 1.) I'd say the majority of die-hard crust fans don't show it in their looks. 2.) Living on the streets is nothing to be proud of - having a bedroom, wifi and both parents at home are a blessing. 3.) Don't dismiss an entire genre of music, even if it's glam. For example, New York Dolls and Hanoi Rocks are cool.

    Tragedy is also the name of a group that did metal covers of the Bee Gees. Pretty amusing, in a novelty sense.

    @bang01 i love how you assume that we are close minded just because we don't worship the same music as you do.

    @bang01 You don't know the first thing about this band, so why are you making outlandish statements about them? These guys are completely DIY, they release all their own shit. They don't promote themselves. Their attitude is literally, 'we're playing a show if people wanna come, then cool'. They don't make any money on their tours, they lose money. They crash at people's houses while on tour, or wherever they can. I don't care if they aren't covered in dirt or wearing rags, that's 'crust punk' enough for me. You're the ONLY person who wants the glam rock band's photo up there, but you're not even an active last fm user. You only have 5 plays of that band anyway and 950 plays total, why the fuck do you even care? I didn't know punk rock was about living in a squat. I thought it was about fighting back, resisting and challenging the system. *rolls around in dirt* am I a punk now?

    Oh, I am far from close-minded, you know. I just don't find what I'm looking for in music in glam rock. A title as "Holiday Heroin Inn" simply does not speak to me as "The Ending Fight" (This chant of anger will ring out like sirens,Until the last neck of the last boss is hung, The end of the ruling classes, The end of sleepless nights, The end of taking orders, The end of wasted lives, the end... the ending fight). What I don't like is not your music, it is your attitude. At least you have some kind of self-mocking sense of humour. ;)

    Try not being so closed minded. Imagine a city where punk & glam/punk bands did just fine living in squats together.....I know impossible, cause glam rock sucks!,
