We're an all female punk/hardcore band from CT. We've been playing shows all over New England. We're punk, we're drunk, you suck, oh fuck!

Biography

The broads formed in May 2010 after meeting through an ad posted on Craigslist. By August they were playing shows and by the end of the year they had released their first demo, "The Damn Demo." They are a punk band that happens to consist of all girls but don't let their gender fool you - they are NOT a girl band. And don't even think of asking if they're a riot grrl band. Because they're not.

The broads have a unique sound. They're influenced by punk rock, street punk, ska, oi and alcohol lots of alcohol. They've been compared to The Pist and the Vomit Punx. They thought that was pretty cool. They were telling peple for weeks... not like people cared, but they told 'em.

In April 2011, the band released their second demo, "Politics and Lady Parts." Over the course of the one year they've been together the band has gotten progressively faster, harder and better. Just ask the people who have been following the broads from the start. They know.

In March 2012 the broads self released their first full length CD, "Loud, Fast and in the Dark." Recorded at The Cutting Room in Manhattan, New York the broads bring it to you raw!

These ladies manage to travel quite often and have played CT, MA, RI, VT, NH, NY and PA. They plan to continue doing shows wherever they can. Damn Broads have played with a million (give or take 999,900-ish or so) with so many amazing underground acts to more mainstream bands including Murphy's Law, The Misfits, Reagan Youth and The Casualties.

Lyrics

You're Gonna Die

Written By: Damn Broads!

You're gonna die and so am I such is the fate of our kind
You're gonna die they're gonna cry at such a waste of a mind
You're gonna die and someday soon you'll hear those funeral bells ring
You're gonna die and someday soon you'll hear those mourning men sing
You're gonna die!

You're gonna die it's all been done before it's sad but it's true
You're gonna die and now the Reaper man he's coming for you
You're gonna die and now his grasp is tightening 'round your throat
You're gonna die and now you're wishing you could find a way out
You're gonna die!

You're gonna die your mama always told you there'd come a time
You're gonna die and now you see that white light shine in your eyes
You're gonna die and now you realize that you're terrified
You're gonna die and now you realize that you're gonna die
You're gonna die!

Pay To Play

Written By: Damn Broads!

Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck pay to play shows!

Stages, basements, all the same
Playing ‘cos you love to play
Playing every fucking day
Fuck pay to play shows!

For the punx, not for the cash
Living hard and dying fast
Can’t believe it’s come to this
Fuck pay to play show!

Selling tickets ain’t your thing
Now they’ve got you hustling
Now you’re fucking hustling
Fuck pay to play shows!

Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck pay to play shows!
Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck pay to play shows!

It’s dog-eat-dog, you know it’s true
You want to play, what can you do?
You’re just another punk rock fool
Fuck pay to play shows!

The terms are set and you consent
A ruling that you’ll soon resent
You’re finding yourself discontent
Fuck pay to play shows!

You’re doing what you must to sell
But you’re not doing it so well
This is a business, this is Hell
Fuck pay to play shows!

I’m not your stepping stone
I, I, I, I, I’m not your stepping stone!

Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck pay to play shows!
Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck pay to play shows!

It’s dog-eat-dog, you know it’s true
You want to play, what can you do?
You’re just another punk rock fool
Fuck pay to play shows!

The terms are set and you consent
A ruling that you’ll soon resent
You’re finding yourself discontent
Fuck pay to play shows!

You’re doing what you must to sell
But you’re not doing it so well
This is a business, this is Hell
Fuck pay to play shows!

Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck pay to play shows!
Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck pay to play shows!
Fuck!

vomit punx tearing up the stage
they were kings back in the day
now that they’ve played their last song
we miss ‘em but we’re moving on

pist raised their voices and their fists
they’re remembered, they are missed
they fucked shit up but now they’re gone,
connecticut chaos punks stay strong!

Oi! to the CTCP
Oi! to the CTCP

copyright “elm city” punks
taught all the kids to drive drunk
now their playing days are done
another band will come along

and then that one will go away
and someone else will come to “stay”
you know it’s true so sing along,
connecticut chaos punk stays strong!

Oi! to the CTCP
Oi! to the CTCP

if there are basements, there are shows
as long as everybody goes
support bands, radios and zines
‘cos they’re the ones who make the scene

we may be small but, man, we’re proud
we play our music fast and loud
and even if you think we’re wrong,
connecticut chaos punk’s still strong!

Oi! to the CTCP
Oi! to the CTCP
Oi! to the CTCP
Oi! to the CTCP
