Hed PE 

These Huntington Beach hardcore rockers have been performing their brand of "g-punk" — a fusion of punk-rock and hip-hop — since their formation in 1994. This "gangstafied" genre has also been known to incorporate heavy metal, rap rock, and reggae, claiming artists like the Beastie Boys, Black Sabbath, and Bob Marley as major influences. The band has endured a number of line-up changes over the years, but the nucleus of Mark Young, aka "Mawk" (bass), Doug Boyce, better known as DJ Product © 1969 (turntables), and Jared Gomes (vocals) has been intact since the very beginning. Gomes's unique vocal style blends melodic tones, raucous raps, as well as the obligatory guttural death growls. Hed PE's music has been instrumental to the emergence of the rap-rock sound and bands such as Limp Bizkit.
