Madball Talks Hardcore Unity: "It Should Be Us Against the World and Not Each Other"

Hardcore punk rock is the world's best music for unity, aggression, and positive mental attitude.

Just ask Freddy Madball, he's been doing it for decades. From the time he was a kid in Miramar, to starting a band on the mean streets of NYC.

Whether you've been going to shows since you were 11, or thinking about checking one out for the first time, everybody is welcome to the open arms of hardcore. Here's what Freddy had to say about Miami, the Black N' Blue Bowl 2015, and why fighting at shows is bullshit.
