B is for The Bronx

The Bronx1 [the bron-cks]

1. a breed of punk and hardcore largely recognised by its added riffage and don't give a fuck attitude
2. a style or movement characterised by the adoption of extreme aggression, ferocious vocals and the urge to punch people full on in the face
3. a defiance of social norms relating to popular music
4. a sound defining the phrase 'multiple eargasms'

Example sentences:
The Bronx will kill us all without mercy

It may be a shitty future, but at least we have The Bronx

I saw The Bronx live last night and now my ears won't stop bleeding

Yes it is a borough of New York, but The Bronx actually hail from Los Angeles

You iPod needs The Bronx

I just saw that mental dude from The Bronx leap head first from a pillar at the Leeds Festival (2009)

2002, Los Angeles, America


  1. I had never heard of The Bronx,Is that me showing my age? lol good post!

    1. Hey, thanks for your kind words and for visiting. I don't think it's an age think at all, I think it's more about bands like The Bronx not getting the air time or coverage they deserve. I hope you liked them.

  2. I listen to all types of music, so it's not age for me. I just know that I'm too old to attend such a concert. (Some kid will knock this old lady down.) If I'm going to listen to this, it will be on my iPod. (Oh, and I'm not sure why 30 is the magic number for you. I didn't really start living until I turned 40. Life actually gets better after 30.)

    1. Hey Jolie, thanks for your reassurance about life after 30! I'm sure it won't be too bad, it just seems a pretty scary place to be headed for a girl who still thinks she's about 21 lol. I'm sure I'll be making another list for my 39th year too.

  3. That's some crazy stuff. But then, I go to KISS concerts.

    1. Hey Cheryl, I hear KISS are pretty awesome live. I hope you do the whole face paint thing when you go to see them! Thanks for your comment.

  4. I'm betting I'm dating myself here, but I hadn't heard of The Bronx as a band before. I was confused when I first started reading!

    Aside from that, I'm your co-host for the A-to-Z! If you didn't get an email from me the other day, it may have gone in your spam box. Please feel free to contact me via my profile or reply to that email if you need anything or have any questions.

    1. Hi Shannon, thanks for visiting and for your comment. Yeah, The Bronx like to confuse people, as they're actually from LA. You might be more familiar with their other band - Mariachi el Bronx. I hear they're doing pretty well in the States.
