was writing and recording in studio. The project originally came to fruition when Iero and Dewees snuck equipment out of the studio so they could mess around with it and were "trying to blow up each other's speakers." The seediness of the area they were located in was a huge influence to the music, with the pair aiming to get "as grimly as humanely possible" without getting kicked out of the apartment.

Electropunk
PUNK ROCK (or simply "PUNK") is a rock music genre that developed in the early to mid-1970s in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia. Rooted in 1960s garage rock and other forms of what is now known as "proto-punk " music, punk rock bands rejected perceived excesses of mainstream 1970s rock. Punk
Punk
bands typically produced short or fast-paced songs, with hard-edged melodies and singing styles, stripped-down instrumentation, and often political, anti-establishment lyrics. Punk
Punk
embraces a DIY ethic ; many bands self-produce recordings and distribute them through informal channels. The term "punk" was first used in relation to rock music by some American critics in the early 1970s, to describe garage bands and their devotees. By late 1976, bands such as the New York Dolls , Television , and the Ramones

Glitch Music
GLITCH is a genre of electronic music that emerged in the late 1990s. It has been described as a genre that adheres to an "aesthetic of failure," where the deliberate use of glitch -based audio media, and other sonic artifacts , is a central concern. Sources of glitch sound material are usually malfunctioning or abused audio recording devices or digital electronics , such as CD skipping , electric hum , digital or analog distortion , bit rate reduction , hardware noise , software bugs , crashes , vinyl record hiss or scratches, and system errors. In a Computer Music Journal article published in 2000, composer and writer Kim Cascone classifies glitch as a subgenre of electronica and used the term post-digital to describe the glitch aesthetic. CONTENTS * 1 History * 2 Production techniques * 3 Glitch hop * 4 Notable artists * 5 See also * 6 References * 7 Further reading HISTORYThe origins of the glitch aesthetic can be traced to the early 20th century, with Luigi Russolo 's Futurist manifesto L'arte dei rumori ( The Art of Noises ) published in 1913, the basis of noise music . He constructed mechanical noise generators, which he named intonarumori, and wrote multiple compositions to be played by them; two of which were Risveglio di una città (Awakening of a City) and Convegno di automobile e aeroplani (The Meeting of Automobiles and Airplanes)

Industrial Music
INDUSTRIAL MUSIC is a genre of experimental /electronic music that draws on transgressive or provocative sounds and themes . The term was coined in the mid-1970s with the founding of Industrial Records by members of Throbbing Gristle and Monte Cazazza ; on Throbbing Gristle's debut album _ The Second Annual Report _, they coined the slogan "industrial music for industrial people". In general, the style is harsh and challenging. AllMusic defines industrial as the "most abrasive and aggressive fusion of rock and electronic music"; "initially a blend of avant-garde electronics experiments (tape music, musique concrète , white noise, synthesizers, sequencers, etc.) and punk provocation". The first industrial artists experimented with noise and aesthetically controversial topics, musically and visually, such as fascism, serial killers and the occult. Their production was not limited to music, but included mail art , performance art , installation pieces and other art forms. Prominent industrial musicians include Throbbing Gristle , Monte Cazazza , SPK , Boyd Rice , Cabaret Voltaire , and Z\'EV . The precursors that influenced the development of the genre included acts such as electronic group Kraftwerk , experimental rock acts such as Pink Floyd and Frank Zappa , psychedelic rock artists such as Jimi Hendrix , and composers such as John Cage

He uses the band as a way to vent the frustrations he has with the current political and social climate; he has additionally stated that writing the lyrics was a way for him to cope with anxiety and depression he had felt during his life, with some of the songs written before the band had even formed.

The Get Up Kids
THE GET UP KIDS are an American rock band from Kansas City, Missouri . Formed in 1995, the band was a major player in the mid-1990s emo scene, otherwise known as the "second wave " of emo music. As they gained prominence, they began touring with bands such as Green Day and Weezer before becoming headliners themselves, eventually embarking on international tours of Japan and Europe . They founded Heroes & Villains Records, an imprint of the successful indie rock label Vagrant Records . While the imprint was started to release albums by The Get Up Kids, it served as a launching pad for several side-projects such as The New Amsterdams and Reggie and the Full Effect . The Get Up Kids were viewed throughout their existence as a prototypical emo band, having been major players in the Midwest emo movement of the mid-1990s. Their second album Something to Write Home About remains their most widely acclaimed album, and is considered to be one of the quintessential albums of the second-wave emo movement. However, like many early emo bands, The Get Up Kids sought to dissociate themselves with the term, as it was considered dismissive to be seen as an "emo band." The band departed heavily from their established style with the release of their 2002 album On a Wire , which saw the band take on a much more layered, alternative rock sound

Hardcore Punk
HARDCORE PUNK (often abbreviated to HARDCORE) is a punk rock music genre and subculture that originated in the late 1970s. It is generally faster, harder, and more aggressive than other forms of punk rock. Its roots can be traced to earlier punk scenes in San Francisco and Southern California which arose as a reaction against the still predominant hippie cultural climate of the time and was also inspired by New York punk rock and early proto-punk . New York punk had a harder-edged sound than its San Francisco counterpart, featuring anti-art expressions of masculine anger, energy and subversive humor. Hardcore punk generally disavows commercialism, the established music industry and "anything similar to the characteristics of mainstream rock " and often addresses social and political topics with "confrontational, politically-charged lyrics". Hardcore sprouted underground scenes across the United States in the early 1980s, particularly in Washington, D.C. , New York , New Jersey , and Boston —as well as in Australia , Canada and the United Kingdom . Hardcore has spawned the straight edge movement and its associated submovements, hardline and youth crew . Hardcore was heavily involved with the rise of the independent record labels in the 1980s, and with the DIY ethics in underground music scenes
