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.
