(1988-now)

Description: Hardcore

Meaning bandname: Named after a song by Naked Raygun

History: Rat Patrol exists since 1988 and are influenced by really all sort of things, from 77 punk to the loudest hatecore. In between the concerts two albums were recorded: ‘Rat Patrol’ (1989) and ‘Not a youth cult’ (1992). They were recorded at Joke’s Rent-a-Cow in Amsterdam and released on the bands own label ‘Highly Obscure Records’. Both records were released on 1 CD. The new studio CD “Painkiller” was released in July 1997, recorded at Bunt’s studio in Utrecht.

Lyrics: Lyrics are important, but more to give rise to discussion or thinking, than to show a pointed finger.
