Our video this week is of Bad Brains performing “I Against I” live in Florida in 1987. “I Against I” was the title track on the band’s third studio album. Bad Brains were formed in Washington, D.C. in 1977 and are widely regarded as one of the pioneers of hardcore punk. Their unique sound also features elements of reggae, funk, heavy metal, hip-hop and soul. Bad Brains have released nine studio albums, and have switched their lineup around over the years, but the core lineup  includes singer H.R., guitarist Dr. Know, bassist Daryl Jenifer, and drummer Earl Hudson (H.R.’s younger brother).
