Refused

Influential Swedish hardcore band Refused were formed in 1991 by vocalist Dennis Lyxzén, guitarists Jon Brännström and Kristofer Steen, bassist Magnus Höggren, and drummer David Sandström. Debuting in 1993 with the EP This Is the New Deal, the group issued the full-length This Just Might Be...the Truth later that same year. The Everlasting EP followed in 1994, and in 1995 Refused returned with another EP, Refused Loves Randy. After 1996's Songs to Fan the Flames of Discontent, they issued the EP Rather Be Dead; in the wake of completing 1998's classic The Shape of Punk to Come, Refused disbanded, unable to reconcile their anarchist leanings with a career in music.

Following their split, Lyxzén went on to form the (International) Noise Conspiracy, while other members created TEXT, among other side projects. The complete split lasted until 2008, when Lyxzén and Sandström formed hardcore outfit AC4. A couple of years later Epitaph Records caused a stir among the band's cult following after posting the cryptic message "Coming Soon" on the old Refused website. Speculation went into overdrive about a possible reunion, before it was announced that the promotion had been for the reissued version of The Shape of Punk to Come, which came packaged with a live album and Steen's documentary Refused Are F**king Dead.

In 2012 BBC Radio 1's Mike Davies announced the full reunion of both Refused and At the Drive-In, with the Swedish band confirming rumors of its slated appearance at Coachella that year. Following the announcement, Refused confirmed a host of summer festival appearances, before indicating that their re-formation was for 2012 only. To cap off their year, they returned to their hometown of Umeå in December for a special performance. They were awarded the "Special Prize for Swedish Music Exports" by the Minister of Trade in 2013, and in 2014 Jon Brännström left the band. Despite claiming their reunion was limited only to 2012, they were announced for the 2015 Reading and Leeds Festivals.

Their fourth studio album, Freedom, was slated for release in 2015, coming 17 years after The Shape of Punk to Come. They recorded with Nick Launay (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Killing Joke), while also turning to Swedish pop producer/songwriter Shellback -- whose credits include Taylor Swift and Britney Spears -- for lead single "Elektra." ~ Jason Ankeny & Scott Kerr, Rovi

Judging by the Bio this band had a lot in their discography. I've been hearing this band for a year and they are great! Another underground band from the 90's that kicked a**! INVSN is on Pandora now might check that out.

So ahead of their time. Not suckin' their D's or anything, but seriously. These guys and Faraquet were a total decade ahead of their genres. I love that they couldn't even stay together because they were so anarchy-orie n t e d . That's a true power-to-the - p e o p l e band haha

Refused is one of the most amazing bands of its genera. The Drummer almost pulls his set apart playing it.

It's been 12 years since The Shape Of Punk To Come was released, and it still sounds as if it was sent from the future.

Refused: Great band, or greatest band?

Lyxzén is a spectre trapped in a wormhole that has swallowed its own tail traversing 'midst only three dimensions as he slides (In no discernable order): Hell, the North Pole, and my AC outlets. Trapped in the wormhole, Mr. Lyxzén finds himself leaping from life to life, putting things right that once went wrong, and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home.

Refused was one of a kind, no doubt. shape of punk to come is the epitime of awesomeness.

The last post must not be misconstrued as an attack on refused, but as a direct assault at all you an your holier than thou attitude homo fascist homos out there. at the very least think of it as the hives on crack

I have no clue why people made such a big deal out of this band. There's a MILLION jagged post-hardcor e bands just like this. I could be listening to Fugazi now.

Technically fine music, but not in this genre (The Locust)It's far to slow, methodic, non-jazz, psuedo-synco p a t i c . . ugh. NOT Locust.
