Tear It Up were from New Jersey and take their name from a Jerry's Kids song. If that gives you one clue here's another, several of these guys were in Dead Nation. Fast high-energy hardcore. Part of the revival of back to basics hardcore that is swept the nation in the Y2K era. Tear It Up takes on scene sell outs, rapists, and society in their lyrics. All the while reflecting the alienation of the outsider in the lonely crowd. Tear It Up was one of the hardest working bands in hardcore, playing constantly all over the USA and Europe. After this debut release they did a split LP on Deranged, two split 7"s, a one sided 7", the classic Nothing to Nothing LP on Deadalive and finally returned to Havoc for their swan song Taking You Down with Me 12". One of the best bands of the early 00 thrash revival.
