Unwritten Law

More of a power pop band than anything else, though they're nestled in Southern California's skate/snowboard punk scene, Unwritten Law formed early in the 1990s, with drummer Wade Youman the only holdover from the band's early days. The group eventually coalesced around vocalist Scott Russo, guitarists Rob Brewer and Steve Morris, bassist John Bell, and Youman.

After releasing their debut, Blue Room, on an independent label, Unwritten Law toured America several times but grew disgusted by the lack of distribution of their records. The band eventually signed to Epic, which re-released Blue Room and in 1996 issued a second album, Oz Factor. The group jumped labels yet again in 1997, to Interscope, and recorded its third album, the self-titled "black album," in 1998. Just before its release in June of that year, Bell left and was replaced by Sprung Monkey's Pat Kim. The album spawned a few semi-hits, like "Lonesome" and "Cailin," among the skate crowd. Three years later, the band issued its fourth full-length, Elva, in early 2002. Debut single "Seein' Red" was a hit on TRL and mainstream radio.

Before the year came to a close, Unwritten Law inked a major deal with Lava Records. The largely acoustic Music in High Places followed in early 2003. Recorded on location at Yellowstone National Park, the album was part of MTV's Music from High Places series, a sort of National Geographic Explorer for the Warped Tour set. As the band started recording its fifth studio effort in 2004, Tony Palermo (Pulley, the Jealous Sound) replaced Youman on drums. The Sean Beavan-produced Here's to the Mourning followed in February 2005, which did reasonably well, mostly due to the single "Save Me."

Brewer was kicked out of the band during a subsequent tour with Sum 41, apparently due to "volatile circumstances" between him and the rest of the group, and Unwritten Law decided to continue on as a four-piece instead of replacing him. Unwritten Law's installment for the 20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection series was issued in fall 2006 by one of their old labels, Interscope, a suspect move considering the band was due to release its own greatest-hits compilation, The Hit List (which included various re-recordings and a new song), in early January 2007. Swan, the group's sixth studio album, arrived in 2011 via Suburban Noize Records. ~ John Bush, Rovi

i met these guy when they stayed at the hotel i was working at when they were on tour promoting their album elva.they played a show with sugar cult at freebirds in Jax beach,fl. we all hung out after the show at a bar till like 6 in the morning. i have some great pics from that night...i had a blast...both bands were really down to earth!

I saw these guys in their Sum 41 Tour @Jacksonvill e , Scott Russo was wasted! Brewer jumped out from behind his drum set nailed Russo with one of his sticks then decked him in the face! They both went off stage and the guitarist was left to apologize for the craziness, Sum 41 went on to play their only album at the time twice to cover the show. Needless they rocked pretty hard, Unwritten Law came back a few months later and played a free show! It was pretty awesome! Truly a Punk Rock moment.
This song sucks!!

OZ factor is my fave... been following them since middle school in 1994
I know using the term pop is like the term disco for most rock fans, and I consider myself a HARD rock fan, but there are a lot of catchy songs that I really like by these guys. I even own a couple albums by them. Does this make me a watered down version of what I think I am?
youman was best drummer i had seen when he was at his best, even a bit better then travis barker...fas t e s t sticks I had ever seen...they rocked then...
I agree they were at their peak with Oz Factor.
jmichaelj76
i think they suck
But then again...Who the Hell am I to judge?
I saw Unwritten Law at Emo's in Austin a couple years back and was greatly disappointed . The lead singer swayed like he was a teenie bop pop icon!!!! Blue Room is hands down their best album, but the Self Titled wasn't all that bad as they had a few good tracks. They may have been successfull if they didn't become so poppy?????
blue room was the best damn album ever not listed of course!

Elva was their best album. Period. Although, Shoulda known better was a great song.
Too bad they lost everything after the self-titled .. Blue Room and Oz Factor are simply some of the best from SoCal pop-punk of the 90's
I love this CD....kind of lost me after this one. I think the whole disc is exceptionall y awesome.
too bad they are not like they use to be!
i love this band <3
A solid band, definitly not "power pop"
i like it
lmfao, Barccua, that was great orchestratio n , lol....
I dunno tho, i've heard only this one song that i'm listening to right now from them, and its really, definitely not the worst music in the world....ya, there's some bad singers out there w/ out-not-to-e x i s t bands in tow....
Where's Blue Room at on the discography? Thats the best one! Cmon now...
tpmcentee
I love how there is a greatest hits album - lol. Is it just the song Seein' Red???
dmarcreative
i'll never get why ppl who hate an artist bother to leave comments...s e e m s to me like if youre taking the time to seek out the comment board and come up with words to put together to make sentences, you might actually like the band. otherwise, why waste your time? i wont ever leave a message for someone who sucks.

This music reminds me of a very difficult time in my life, were I was constipated, and the only crap I heard was this band comming from my nextdoor neighboor down the hall.
wade youman was the s@*t
Power Pop? No.
Power Pop=Jellyfis h , MIKA, etc.

What happened to this awesome band? All progress is change, but not all change is progress. I hope they try and rediscover the sounds from the Black Album.
i love there song 'shulda known beter' its sortta distubing but it (as wel as almost all there other songs) dells with serice real life issues. all iv gotta say yo ya'all is KEEP ON ROCKIN BABY!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
