Reviews Bad Reaction Had it Coming

Bad Reaction

Had it Coming

Had it Coming is my first exposure to Los Angeles’ Bad Reaction, but apparently this recording is a CD version of their previously released 7”s Dare to be Dull and Plastic World, plus a choice cover.

Bad Reaction play fast punk influenced hardcore. All but one of the songs here end up under two minutes. As expected, that means the music is played fast. Their sound is characterized by upbeat basslines, galloping drums, and buzzsaw 80’s inspired riffs. Matched with their intensity is vocalist Kash’s spoken yells, very reminiscent of Minor Threat. Lyrically the songs revolve around the usual life issues, but with a sense of humor that lightens the mood. Tacked onto the end is a cover of Bad Brains’ “Pay to Cum.” The band does a good job with it as they highlight one of their key influences.
