This is what you need to know about hardcore in the USA in the 2000s. Three labels held it down harder than all others: Youngblood, Lockin Out, and Painkiller. Youngblood is the unsung hero of the trio. Lest we forget that Youngblood has held it down harder for Texas than anyone while boasting one of the most solid rosters in hardcore. One of Youngblood's more well known bands and one of the best / coolest bands from the Bay during this era was Lights Out. Band played fast, bouncy hardcore. I hate to use this term but the band definitely carried that "get low" sound that got attached to many of Lockin Out's bands of the day. This is both of their albums.
